Group 1: (Weight 200 and under)
Group 2: (Weight 201 and up)
If after our starting weigh-in, I find that the groups are severely imbalanced, I’ll adjust accordingly. You will only be competing against those within your own group for weight loss! What this means is that there will be more winners as well! Each group’s prize pot will be equivalent to the # of people in that group. The person with the highest % of weight loss in each group will win 60% of their group’s prize pot. 2nd place will win 30% of their group’s pot. And the remaining 10% will go to a points winner, which will be explained below. (NOTE: All prizes are given after challenge rewards are paid out and 15% is taken out of the pot for myself since I was forced to promise I would do so during our last season! Thanks guys, I appreciate it.)
NOTE: For those of us who are current group members returning for season 35, your final season 34 weight and your starting season 35 weight will be compared and the lower of the 2 will be used as your OFFICIAL season 35 starting weight! (If for whatever reason you chose to skip the final weigh-in of season 34, your week 5 weight will be used in comparison) This means that if you start season 35 higher than you ended season 34, those extra lbs won’t count towards your weight loss. Let’s start the new year off right and don’t spend the first week overindulging. We did that all last month haha. For those who are coming in brand new…Please don’t make me be the bad guy. I know it’s tempting to eat all the food the night before starting a new health plan, but please keep things honest and do not pad your starting weight this way.(HUGE week 1 weight loss will be viewed with suspicion) This group is very much about honesty. I know that it can be hard between seasons to keep control over our eating, but let’s all try not to go too crazy!
NOTE: Newcomers to this group always worry that their pictures posted in the group will show up for the public to see. This group is secret. As long as you are on the group wall BEFORE posting your pictures, no one will see them but those in the group. Your pictures will show up on your own feed when you view it, but I promise you no one else can see it!
POINTS SYSTEM DETAILS!!! (borrowed from sixsistersstuff.com) -There is a weekly point calendar for each of the 8 weeks. (It will be posted as a separate document under the “Files” tab on the group page) Print it out and use to track your points and weight loss. If you prefer to use an excel spreadsheet that will do your math for you, Cody Mecham made one a few seasons ago that we’ve updated and will post as well for you to download.
