Biggest Loser 8 Week Challenge

Options
Hey guys!!! I am starting a Biggest Loser 8 Week Challenge! I know that there are a few others going on, but everytime someone posts them I miss it! So I am starting my own. I already have 2 people plus myself to compete in this challenge. I will be accepting 7 more people. This is an 8 week challenge. We will be weighing in every Friday! In order for your weigh in to count, You have to post a picture of your scale with your name and date on a piece of paper. I am only doing this to keep it fair and truthful (I trust you all just saying) We will be going on the percentage of weight loss, not the pounds themselves. So who is up for the challenge?!!!!

The winner gets the title. I don't have an actual prize!
The first 7 people to respond to this are on. We will do our first weigh in NEXT Friday. Just to get used to the new weigh in day (in case you don't already weigh in on Friday)!!!!

If there are any other rules ya'll think I should have, feel free to give me some insight. This is my first time!:)

    I may as well give it a try. I was hesitant about joining the weight loss challenge at my job. But with nothing to lose, except weight! And confidence and more health to gain, count me in:smile:

    If everyones scale pics aren't posted by Saturday AM, you will be disqualified. If we don't have enough people we can just take the challenge down to a different time frame!:)
