The BGG Weight Loss Challenges have been a rousing success thus far. We've lost over 4,000lbs between the first nine 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 - 2017!! I sincerely apologize for the long hiatus, missing the summer challenge was a setback, but let's just push it even harder as we pull into the long winter!!

This challenge will start Monday, September 25th and run 8 weeks, ending on Monday, November 20th.

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 25th. 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:

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: Let's DO This!


Welcome to week 2!! Hope everyone had a great first week and we see some great losses!



I will have weekly stats posted, in this item, each Wednesday (or Thursday).

Here is my week 2 weight:

230lbs

I had a very up and down week. Some days I did great. Other days not so great. Again, my problem is snacking late at night. I need to get that under control. Once I do I expect to see much better stats

Good luck!!

WEEK 2 STATS!!


We did incredible this week, as you'll see below. Don't expect these kinds of numbers all challenge, as the biggest losses are always the first and last weeks of the challenge

Let's buck that trend this time!!!!

Here is what it looks like:

meeple We lost 118.67lbs or 53.83kg or 63,290 meeples this week! meeple

meeple Our new average weight is 229.87lbs or 104.27kgs or 122,599 meeples!! meeple

meeple 21 of the 78 of us lost 3lbs or more this week! meeple

meeple 8 people lost 5lbs or more this week! meeple

meeple Our first milestone people who have lost at least five pounds so far are: meeple

Gaddiel
dallanc

1-1.99% - 16 people or 21%
2-2.99% - 7 people or 9%
3% or more - 1 person or 1%

meeple Here is the top 10! meeple
