corinnak - that's a great loss/gain story from your half marathon!

And here's the list of people that haven't reported in yet for the final weigh in! So if any of you are checking in and just forgot, there's still time to stand up be counted!

Good morning everyone.

We are back from my sisters camp, and I am ready to get back to healthy living. We have two days to relax and get ready for school to start, but I'm going to go to the grocery store and stock up today. We've pretty much cooked on the barbeque or eaten out for 2 weeks, and though vacation has been wonderful, it will be nice to be home and get back into a routine.

A big congratulations to everyone here who has stuck this challenge out. Summer is a tough time to lose weight, and some of you have lost some amazing numbers! If you've gained or maintained, I like to think how much worse off it could be if you hadn't been coming to this thread for inspiration. The fall will be a good time to lose, and it looks like most of us will be doing the next challenge!

A really big thank you to Shannon for being weightkeeper, Dona for being cow keeper, and Lisa for organizing and keeping this challenge going. You all have been such a wonderful support system for me. Thank you also to all the weekly coaches. It's great to have a different coach each week.

Corinnak- congratulations on running the half marathon, and on your improvement in time. That is fabulous.

Dona-It has been a rough summer for you with your surgery and all. I think a maintain is pretty awesome with all you've been through. Hope you're feeling better real soon.

Maria-3.8!!! awesome ending to a successful challenge. I always do better the week that I am coaching too. It does prove checking in daily does work.

sskem06- Congratulation on being overweight!!! I know that is such an accomplishment. That is my first big goal that I am working towards.

princessbride6205- congrats on your awesome loss this challenge!!

Jenjolt- the baggy pants story is funny. So nice when our clothes are too big, rather than too tight.

Lisa- Congrats on 9 pounds this summer, and 13 for the year. I know how hard it is, and truly feel that the slower it comes off, the more likely it will be permanent weight loss this time. You can be the poster child for checking in here frequently contributing to your success. Nice work!!

Shannon- nice job on your loss this week. It's always motivating to see that scale go down.

Have a great day everyone.

Final Week - Results Part 1

Here we celebrate our progress and recognize our superstars for the last week of our BL Summer Challenge!

Reminders:
-I don't follow the BL TV version of handling gains. All losses are the simple formula of: (last week - this week) divided by last week

First some stats

not reporting in for 3 weeks --------- 2
not reporting in for 2 weeks ----------2
not reporting in for 1 week -----------1
Excused------------------------------2
DONE because they reached Goal------1
new recruits this week----------------0
weigh ins this week------------------16
gains--------------------------------6
maintains----------------------------2
losses------------------------------8


Summer Between BL Challenge Final Week
weekly total group LOSS for this week = 9.4 pounds

Average percentage of weight lossthis week 0.26%


Before the weekly superstar list comes the disclaimer. I am human and I make mistakes. If you have any questions please contact me.

Now let's get to the good stuff. Who were our superstars of final week? This week, the top losers list is a top 8
(That criteria may change from week to week depending on the number of people/losses/gains, and sometimes just to spice it up! )

The WISH Biggest Loser Summer Challenge Final Week Superstars!!

#8-0.33% - LuvBaloo
#7-0.36% - MelanieC
#6-0.46% - PrincessBride6205
#5-0.71% - FLAngie
#4-1.04% - lulamc
#3-1.56% - sskem96
#2-1.84% - Worfiedoodles

and now

The WISH Biggest Loser Summer Challenge
Final Week Biggest Loser!!

#1-3.09%- sahbushka

Congratulations Sahbushka! for being the Biggest Loser of our summer challenge! You so totally rock!
All of your had work this summer paid off -- I am so happy for you!

And a GREAT BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all of our other superstars, especially folks like corinnak and lulamc who did so well all summer long!

We should all be proud of ourselves for sticking with it through the summer!

A great big thanks to all of the participants, coaches, and Shannon (LuvBaloo) and donac (COW keeper) for making this challenge a great one! You guys are the best!

Thanks for the cool statistics, Shannon. I am surprised that almost half the weight lost in the challenge was done in the last week!

The fall challenge sign up has started. It is a sticky at the top of the WISH boards. So please come join the conversation and good luck with the next challenge!

I made mistake!

The weekly report had a few typos in it.

Sorry folks. I realized it earlier this morning, (thanks Sahbushka!) but then I couldn't get into it to change it.

So I'll go back and edit after I do this post.

But just to clarify, the 8 losers in the last week did not lose half the weight of the challenge. And Sahbuska did not have a loss every week, but she did do fantastic as you can tell by her 40pounds clippie!

Congratulations Sarah!!!
and a big congrats to all the losers!! Weigh to go!!!

I know summer is such a tough time to lose weight, and maintaining can be just as tough, so you all should be commended for sticking to it, and seeing those pounds gone forever.

And a kudos to those 4 of us who gained. We stuck with it, and now that fall is upon us, it's time to become losers.

Thank you Shannon for being an awesome weightkeeper. It was so nice to know when you would post the results, and love the final statistics.

See you all on the other thread!

Wow..... those BL summer challenge statistics are AWESOME!

I love seeing stats like that. My biggest THANKS to Lisa, Shannon, and Dona for all they did to coordinate and keep this challenge going.

To those of you who lost during this challenge.... WAY TO GO! It is so tough to continue losing during the summer.

To those of you who maintained during this challenge.... that is what is is all about! It is truly more difficult to maintain (even if it is not at your ideal weight) than anything else.

To those of you who saw a gain this summer, but CONTINUED to come join us on this thread.... YOU ROCK!! It is SO hard to come talk to your "group", whether it is a group IRL, like a WW meeting, or an on-line group like us here, when you KNOW your weight isn't heading in the right direction. But you definitely did the right thing and kept trying to get your mind and heart headed in the right direction. Congrats to you.... the fall will hopefully find you in a "losing" frame of mind and body.

I can't wait to see you all (plus some new friends) over on the BL8 Challenge. ..........................P
