The first ever BGG Weight Loss Challenge was a rousing success, as was the second BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Summer Edition third BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Autumn Edition fourth BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Winter Edition and fifth BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Spring Edition - 2016! We've lost about 3,000lbs between the first five challenges and made a bunch of new friends along the way. Well, those challenges are over, and so a new one will be born from its ashes. Welcome to the BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Summer Edition - 2016!! This is the active season! We should see some amazing results from everyone

This challenge will start Monday, June 27th and run 8 weeks, ending on Monday, August 22nd.

If you're not familiar at all with how the challenge works, fear not! All will be explained.

Here is how it works:
1 First thing's first. Tip this geeklist header 20gg as your entry fee. ANYONE can join anytime up until Monday, June 27th. Tipping this geeklist is all you need to do to enter.
2 Submit your weight to me, in pounds, using the following google form each and every Monday and ONLY on Monday throughout the entire challenge.



3 At the end of the challenge, if you lost at least 6% of your starting weight, you will split the entire pot evenly with everyone else who met the 6% goal. In the first challenge there was about 4000gg entered, and 45 people out of 150 met the 6% goal. So each of us who met the goal got around 90gg!
4 The only weights that ACTUALLY matter here are the starting weight and the ending weight, but in an effort to both keep us honest as well as motivated, I ask that you submit your weight every week. I'll be putting out stats every week based on % lost and things like that. I WILL NEVER SHARE THE WEIGHT YOU SUBMIT TO ME WITH ANYONE, NOR WILL I POST THE WEIGHT ANYWHERE. This is all done by % of weight lost. So you will submit your actual weight - in pounds - to me each Monday, and I will run it through my handy dandy spreadsheet which is setup to deal with percentages lost, and I'll compile stats and post them as geeklist entries each week. It's fun to see how we are progressing.
5 It is important that you remember the starting day and the ending day, as your weight will NOT be accepted if you submit it after the ending day. So if you had lost more than 6% throughout the competition, but fail to weigh in by the ending day, you're out.
6 In the past, some very generous users donated prizes to the top three finishers. It was incredibly amazing and fantastic.

EDIT: We have had a very generous donation for the top three finishers of this challenge!! Thank you very much to:

Thank you so very much to Seth and the rest of the great people at Mayday Games for your incredible generosity!!

Also, user Dallanc made the following microbadges:

So those will be available again this challenge (with slight modifications to the season and color, of course). Your 20gg buys you the participation badge, and if you meet the 6% at the end, you will get the badge with the medal. Very cool stuff.

The goal of these challenges is to lose weight the healthy way, and not to quickly drop a ton of poundage. Please be healthy! I will ask that in the discussion thread, everybody please feel free to share any tips they have on healthy ways to lose weight, what's worked for you in the past, etc...

Our last discussion thread was a beacon of motivation and encouragement, I'd love to keep that rolling into this competition. It really helped me, personally.

Many users kept track of their journey with personal geeklists. You can read about those here, and decide if you want to make your own for this challenge:

Welcome to the official start of the 2016 Summer edition of the BGG weight loss challenge!!! Please have your weight submitted here by the end of the day today (your time).

There has been a lot of stuff going on in my personal life over the past eight months or so. To say it has inhibited my weight-loss goals would be both an understatement as well as a complete cop-out, so you won't hear me talk about that any longer!

I'm going to do my absolute best to run every day, and my goal of not eating anything after 7pm will be instituted once more.

This is happening, people. Watch out for me!!!!

WEEK 2: FOCUS!


With the craziness of the American holiday behind most of us, we can hopefully all focus on our goals a bit more! If you messed up, that's okay! It's never too late to start. So make it right now!!!



Stats will be posted tomorrow or Thursday.

Here is my week 2 weight:

214.2lbs

Not bad. Not great. I started the couch-to-5k program yesterday and am excited to actually complete it this time. I decided I'm going to enter a 5k to give me some extra motivation for it.

Hopefully it sticks this time!

Have a great week, everyone!!

WEEK 2 STATS!!


I'll update the update thread with details of the hiatus I've taken, but until then here come a barrage of stats!

We did VERY well this week, as you'll see below. Hopefully this continues!!

Our starting weight changed a bit as some new entrants were added and an oversight on another user's weight was corrected. So with that being said, our new starting weight was 30,006.54lbs

Here is what it looks like now:

We lost 234.25lbs or 106.25kg or 124,933 meeples this week!

Our new average weight is 232.60lbs or 105.50kgs or 124,050 meeples!!

42 of the 128 of us lost 3lbs or more this week!

14 people lost 5lbs or more this week!

1 person somehow lost 10lbs or more this week! Holy cow!!

Here is how the weekly percentages shook out:
Under 1% - 81 people or %63
1-1.99% - 31 people or %24
2-2.99% - 8 people or %6
3% or more - 8 people or %6

We rocked the first week!! Great job, everybody! We lost SO much weight this week!!! That's fantastic work It's not going to be this much every week, so don't let that get you down. The first week is always one of the best. Just keep doing what you're doing and you'll get to that 6% before you know it!!
