Here is your Team chat room for November 2020. This is where you weigh in every week, post your goals and progress, discuss any issues or topics of interest, share ideas, support your teammates, receive help when you need it, and dream big. Try to post every day, and help each other succeed!

We have six great teams. The group and team leaders are as follows:

Our Moderators:
Liselyn - @jugar
Beka - @Beka3695
Teresa - @TeresaW1020
Megan - @Megan_smartiepants1970

Our Team Captains:
Mission Slimpossibles - @broncobuddee and @TeresaW1020
Trimstones - @mulecanter and @jessicakrall8
Weight No More - @1theresamcvean and @minstrelofsarcasm
Waist Aways - @jugar and @micki48
Shrinking Assets - @Boehle and @beka3695
Downsizers - @lindamtuck2018 and @Megan_smartiepants1970

Our Team Motivators:
Mission Slimpossibles - @AustinRuadhain @katmary71 and @raleighgirl09
Trimstones - @Emmajhare and @angmarie28
Weight No More - @GingerPwr and @KUMEcyclingteam
Waist Aways - @Terytha and @conleywoods
Shrinking Assets - @hipari
Downsizers - @Marigorringo

HOW IT ALL WORKS:
Every challenger weighs in on their chosen day, every week without fail! At the end of each week, the tallies are done to determine the team and individuals with the most weight lost. The best losers are announced with full fanfare every Sunday. The team competition is all in good spirits - may the most losing win!

We also track those small, steady losses with the Green Week count. If you lose, however small an amount, it counts for 1 week in the green. The total will be by month, and cumulative - so you can really rack them up and get to your goal even if you never hit the top of the leaderboard.

In an effort to recognize accomplishments, we are using an optional addition to the weigh in format called LOSS TO DATE or LTD. Please just leave this new line off if you do not want to participate. Here is the new format:

Username
Weigh In Day
PW (Previous Weight):
CW (Current Weight):
LTD (Loss to Date): your TOTAL loss since your highest weight ever

If you need a week off, a break, a change of weigh-in day - just ask your Captains here on your team chat page. If you take a break, you are moved to the Support Team. If you miss two weigh-ins in a row without asking for a break, you will be dropped from the team, so be sure to ask if you are travelling, sick, or just needing some time off. You can remain on the Support Team for as long as you need to. You still participate in the discussions and weigh in if you want to, but your weigh-ins will not be counted on the weekly tally.

Once you reach your goal weight, you join the Goal Zone! After hitting your goal, you need support to stay there, and you can help your teammates join you. You must continue to weigh in every week, and if you have 2 weeks above your self-defined goal zone, you go back to the regular team to lose that amount before it builds up. You will have a chance to hone those maintenance skills and stick with your team!

In addition to your own team, there are F2F Full Group CHALLENGES. You can do all or none - it's up to you. Participating adds a lot to your success, so we hope to see you there often! These can involve anything fitness, health, or nutrition - and they’ll get you moving, thinking, and learning about this journey. Check the Announcements section for full group challenges.

Let’s show our fellow challengers some F2F love! Introduce yourselves right away, and let the new month begin!!

    Hi all, looking forward to chatting through November. UK back in lockdown for a month from Thursday so my gym is closing. It’s going to be a long month, but I will make the best of what I have at home.

    Welcome to November guys!! Looking forward to hearing from each of you and supporting you through the month.

    :star:The Green Challenge :star: Percentage of people who lost weight this week. No matter how small the loss the weights are recorded in green. Remember that even if your team doesn’t rank the highest in weight loss for the week you can still be the Green Percentage winner by having the most losses in your team! So keep it up!! B)

    Hi Trimstones..Happy November...I have one more joining you this month ..Please welcome @vjsky :)
  • vjskyvjsky Member Posts: 24 Member Member Posts: 24 Member
    Hello! I am new to the team and so excited to be here! I am currently 186 lbs. My highest was just about 200 lbs- the lowest 130 (I am 5'2-so have a lot to lose!). Once I got my weight down, I was diagnosed with an illness that put me onto high doses of steroids ....well...enough said :(. This past spring I started seeing a new doctor and was doing great- but the pandemic hit -and I found myself eating and drinking too much! I am also a high school teacher- so have been sitting in front of the computer more than usual :(. I am hoping to get back on track! I hope I can contribute to our weight loss numbers! Thanks again for allowing me to be apart of the team!

    Can I join the step challenge this month at 8k? I’m teaching Spin 3 times a week now, so those days that’s my main exercise and I’m not hitting the 10k.

    Good Morning and Happy November. Im so glad that October is over! This hasn’t been the best year and October was the worst. So I’m looking forward to a new month and better days.

    I guess I’m the first weigh in for a November. This is my first week doing IF. I know every week won’t be this good, but I’m thrilled with the results so far.

    It has been a very hard week for myself. I am committed to November and journalling. I weighed myself on Friday.
    I only went to 180. Sorry for not posting and being mia. I do read all the messages so thanki you for posting all you stories. Once the kiddos are in school I'll do a workout and catch-up read from October the last week. Stay safe everyone 😘
