Welcome to Marvelous March WISH Away the Pounds-- March 2013 Edition
Losers and Maintainers welcome!


Pm weights to pjlla


Coaches for March
March 1-7 - pjlla (Pamela)
March 8-14 - pjlla (Pamela
March 15-21 - Rose&Mike (Rose)
March 22-28 - Flossbolna (Magdalene)
March 29/30/31 (or the full week until April 4) ??


Future Hosts:
April araes2102 (Amanda)
May donac (Dona)
June YOUR NAME HERE!
July OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE TO ANYONE!


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!

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:
10%, orange
25% bright pink
50% purple
75% turquoise
90% red--ALMOST THERE!
100%WISH green


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.


For example:
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.


Maintainer Goals
25% bright pink
50% purple
75% turquoise
100%WISH green


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!

Hi again ladies!! I'm definitely in again for March for 3 pounds. Maybe, just MAYBE, I'll hit that ever elusive goal weight this month???

Thanks to our hostess and coaches for February!

I'm in! I swear I'm going to do my darnedest to post more (at all!) in March. I don't know where February went... I'm in as a maintainer again & just PM'd my last February/start March number. Woo!

DH and I are going out on a 4-night Dream escape the last week in March while our DDs are at Camp Grandma. How awful of us, right? So I definitely need to stay on track this month in advance of that.

And I'm in full training mode for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in DC at the end of April. This is the first race I'm fundraising for, too, so I'm feeling *extra* committed. Along those lines, if anyone's a particular supporter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and wants to pledge to my run, drop me a PM...

I hope everyone's doing well - I've loved keeping up with you all this past month even while I've been in lurker mode!

Just think, by the end of this challenge piece, it'll be spring!!! Yaahhhoooo!!!

XO
Liz

I'm in again this month, this time without a week long trip in the middle of it.

And I'm going for a more attainable goal this time.
