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 fifth BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Spring Edition - 2016 and sixth BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Summer Edition - 2016! We've lost about 4,000lbs between the first six 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 their ashes. Welcome to the BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Autumn Edition - 2016!! The terrible summer has ended finally, and it's time for hoodies and bonfires! Running/biking season! We should see some amazing results from everyone

This challenge will start Monday, September 26th and run 8 weeks, ending on Monday, November 21st.

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, September 26th. 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.

Also, user Dallanc made the following microbadges:

Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge Participant - Spring 2015Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Spring 2015Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge Participant - Fall 2015Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Fall 2015Microbadge: 1st place - BGG Weight Loss ChallengeMicrobadge: 2nd place - BGG Weight Loss ChallengeMicrobadge: 3rd place - BGG Weight Loss ChallengeMicrobadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge Participant - Summer 2015Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Summer 2015Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge Participant - Winter 2015Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Winter 2015Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge participant - Spring 2016Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Spring 2016Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge participant - Summer 2016Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Summer 2016Microbadge: BGG Weight Loss Challenge participant - Fall 2016Microbadge: It feels good to be a loser! - BGG Weight Loss Challenge - Fall 2016


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:

WEEK 2: Up the Mountain!


Here we go. One week under our belts, we can see the first bits of progress. Keep it going strong, these challenges have a way of seeming to end before they begin.



Like always, stats will be posted Wednesday or Thursday.

Here is my week 2 weight:

221.6lbs

I'm not going to lie, I was hoping for a bigger loss, as I've been putting in the work on the exercise front. I've been running pretty consistently the past couple of weeks, however, I could definitely be eating much better. So that's what I'm going to work on this week.

Do you track what you put into your body? It's a great idea to do that. Most times you are eating much worse than you think you are.

Keep it up, everyone!

WEEK 2 STATS!!


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

Here is what it looks like:

We lost 79.80lbs or 36.20kg or 42,560 meeples this week!

Our new average weight is 222.23lbs or 100.80kgs or 118,520 meeples!!

10 of the 56 of us lost 3lbs or more this week!

5 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% - 38 people or 68%
1-1.99% - 13 people or 23%
2-2.99% - 2 people or 4%
3% or more - 3 people or 5%

Here is the top 10!

1. UsanaChris - 3.48%
2. BenjoBaker - 3.33%
3. kjking1228 - 3.03%
4. jdwpin - 2.38%
5. wkufan89 - 2.34%
6. willshaw67 - 1.96%
7. TracyInVA - 1.84%
8. TheBruce77 - 1.69%
9. Mashpotassium - 1.52%
10.leviathangr - 1.46%


We rocked the first week!! Great job, everybody! We lost a lot of 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!!

WEEK 4: Deadlocked


Plateaus are annoying, and it's easy to just give up when you feel like you're putting in the work and not seeing the results. If you keep doing what you're doing, you WILL push through and start losing again. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway



Like always, stats will be posted Wednesday or Thursday.

I don't know if anyone's ever had strep throat as an adult, but Great Sackson's Ghost, it's dreadful!!!

Well, I'm back today (sort of), so here we are!! Let's get it!!
