Interested in joining a new challenge group? The Biggest Loser Challenge will start up a new 10-week challenge this weekend!! Please read over the rules and request to join the group by clicking here and requesting to join: http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/group/23818-biggest-loser-team-challenge

Challenge Rules (subject to discussion and change):

1) Several teams compete, with between 20-30 members each. Which team you are a member of is decided by the power of The Almighty Spreadsheet. Please respect the other members of your team! Everyone has a valid opinion, and we want to provide an open space for them to share it.

2) Each group will have their own thread. Please keep all group discussions in this thread, as making multiples threads per group makes it harder for we (the moderators) to keep track of everything and keep things organized. Please help us, help you. :) If you would like to post about a topic not related to your group, please feel free to start a thread. Otherwise, each team will have one thread for discussion.

3) You should log your weight once each week. Weigh-ins will always open on a Thursday afternoon and close on Sundays at 10:00pm (PST; Pacific Time US)! This will happen in the form of a new thread each week (e.g. WEEK 1 WEIGH IN THREAD) which will be posted on the group's forum. Late weights will not be accepted. We - the group's moderators - will post the results of each weigh-in by Monday at noon, 12:00pm PST at the latest.

4) The first weigh-in (the starting weigh-in) establishes your "beginning" weight for the purpose of calculating percentage lost. The team with the highest percentage of weight lost during the challenge will be our official challenge winners. NOTE: Please make sure that you accurately post your initial weight, and your weight for all following weigh-ins. We (the moderators) encourage everyone to accurately post their weights, and follow a healthy weight loss plan. Really, at the end of the day, the goal of this competition is to motivate one another to work towards the ultimate goal -- a healthy, long, and happy life (and safe weight loss to get there)!

5) 3 Strikes and you're out: missing 3 weigh-ins disqualifies you from the competition and puts you onto the Cheerleader's team. These weights will no longer count for your original team. Members of the Cheerleader team will not be ranked for the purposes of this challenge, but they are still encouraged to weigh-in each week. They may also participate in the threads and challenges hosted by competing teams. If you KNOW that you're going to miss a weigh-in, message (myself) rosepeppercreek or wiccandothis and we'll repost your previous week's weight - so you will not get a strike.

6) We will set challenges every week at the bottom of the results for the previous week (usually one nutrition and one fitness). In addition to the challenges we set, your group may decide to do additional challenges. You may also pick and choose from the challenges we set. It is up to the teams!

7) This is a 10 week challenge, before posting your initial weight and being assigned a team, please make sure you are ready to participate for the full ten weeks.

8) New members and returning members must join the group and log a starting weight BEFORE the July 31st deadline, after that membership to the group will be closed for the duration of the August- October Challenge. Non-members can either visit the group's homepage to request entrance to the group, or they can send a direct message to rosepeppercreek.
