WISH Away The Pounds - Marvelous March Challenge ~~ All are WELCOME!
Marvelous March has begun!
Welcome to WISH Away the Pounds--Marvelous March 2013 edition!
Please read the complete instructions in post 2, and then let me know if you have any questions.
The philosophy behind our new challenge: small achievable goals. One month at a time, one week at a time, one day at a time, one bite at a time.

How the challenge works:
This is the new and improved challenge that replaces the BL challenges. Like the show has evolved, so have our challenges and this format takes the best of that long standing tradition and makes it even better! ::yes::
The goal of the new challenge is to meet your weight loss/maintain goals on a monthly basis. Results will be posted as percentages toward goal and your color will change as you approach your goal, similar to the exercise thread on the WISH boards. It is the hope that this new format will encourage some great discussions about weight loss, maintaining, diet, exercise and healthy living!
It is up to the hostess each month as to whether she wants to have coaches/Question of the day, mini-challenges, etc. It is her month, so she can choose to handle it how she wants.
Heres how the new challenge will work. It is going to be a monthly individual challenge. Each month is a new start. You are competing against yourself to meet your goals for the month. No one will know your actual weight (unless you share it) except the hostess for the month. NO GOAL IS TOO SMALL.
Let me repeat: NO GOAL IS TOO SMALL. A loss is a loss is a loss. Your color will change based on your % lost toward goal.
On Monday nights the thread will be updated with percentage toward goal.
Here is an example of what the stats will look like.
Updated January 7, 2013
Minnie Mouse 25.00 %
Daisy Duck 12.00 %
Goofy 0.00 %
Donald Duck 33.33 %
Mickey Mouse 40.00 %
Weight Loss Goals:
25% bright pink
90% red--ALMOST THERE!
In this case Goofy, put on a few pounds, but that will be reported as 0%. We are not going to call people out, but just report positive moves towards your goal!
Minnie Mouse had a starting weight of 110 with a goal of 4 pounds. At her weigh in she reported a weight of 109 with a percentage loss of 25%.
Your color will change based on your % loss. If you gain, your percentage will decrease, and your color will change, but no one will know your weight except the hostess. Only your % loss toward goal will be reported. Negative percentages will not be reported
Participants (other than the hostess) will not know your pound lost goal or actual weight unless you choose to share it with them.
Maintainers will set a goal for the month of number of weeks they would like to stay in maintain range (+/- 4 pounds).
They will weigh in on the first day of the month and then on each of the weekends. Their results will be reported as percentages along with their goal.
Pluto 1/4 25%.
Pluto has a goal of maintaining all four weeks. He put on 1 pound at the first weigh in, but is in his maintain range.
25% bright pink
It really is pretty simple. Remember, no one will see your weight or pound loss goal except the hostess unless you choose to share it.
Percentage loss will be updated once a week. If you miss sending in your weight over the weekend, no big deal, just send an update the following weekend. Please understand that this is a volunteer job and the hostess will only be updating once a week.
Hopefully I have answered all of your questions.
Good luck! I look forward to seeing everyone meet their healthy living goals!

And let the chatting commence! We will finish up with our February challenge today with a huge THANK YOU to Lisa for being our wonderful hostess!

Hi again ladies!!:wave2: I'm definitely in again for March for 3 pounds. Maybe, just MAYBE, I'll hit that ever elusive goal weight this month??? :confused3
Thanks to our hostess and coaches for February! :love:
Good morning and thanks for hosting!!! :wave2: I am going for 1 lb a week again. I have to go for it.
Subscribing. Ooo, I love me a brand, new shiny thread! ::yes::
Pamela, thanks for hosting March!
I am here and will once again try for 5 pounds as my goal. Not that I managed that the last two months, but I know that it is the goal I would be really happy with, so I better try to reach it! :thumbsup2 The cruise is coming closer and I really want to hit a certain milestone before. And besides that I am going to continue to be "shredded", so that should help!
Do you still need coaches for March? The last week would work very well for me. It is Easter week, so work will be quieter and I have no great plans for Easter. But I could make another week work as well!
I'm in too for a third month....gonna try for 7lb again in March as I actually beat that in February. WooHoo, you lot are really keeping me on track.
It was Weigh-In at my slimming club last night and I got awards for Slimmer of the week (A fruit basket) and slimmer of the month for February (I can have a pen, a key ring or a mug...I've opted for the mug as I could use a new one for work).
Would I be correct in assuming that WI will be:
1st Friday 1st March
2nd Friday 8th March
3rd Friday 15th March
4th Friday 22nd March
5th Friday 29th March
Last Chance - Sunday 31st March
I need some accountability....I would love to join you guys again. It's been a while but I used to be a regular on the WISH boards and BL challenges.
