I hope you are all making the best of the summer and are enjoying the rewards of your labor in slimming down & shaping up on the last Sizzlin Summer Meltdown Challenge. We still have a ways to go in summer fun and there are lots of hot days ahead so we want to continue the momentum and keep losing to achieve our personal goals as we work our way into early Fall! Same goes to all of you on maintenance. We all know how easy it can be to let a couple of lbs sneak in there.
So without further ado let’s get this new challenge underway!
The challenge will run for 8 weeks and the first official weigh in day is Friday August 13 and the last will be Friday October 1. As soon as you see this, post your goals for the 8 week challenge and return to weigh in on Friday. For returning members use your weight of the last weigh in as a starting point and post the difference when you weigh in on Friday. For new member just joining this challenge set your goals based on your last weigh in and go from there.
You all know the drill!
As usual I ask that you be committed to sticking with the challenge, post your goals weekly and be there for the final weighing in. If for any reason you cannot post on that specific day post it before or after and let the team know if you will be away for any time during the challenge.
Goals are to be set in whole lbs only or in inches, your choice. Remember to set realistic goals for the 8 week period. To keep it fair I would ask that goals not be changed during the challenge.
The style format will be the same as the example below. Keep copying and pasting from week to week and add your new stats every Friday! Please do not deviate from this format. It sure makes my job easier to keep track of from week to week.
Select an emoticon, if you like and post one for every full pound lost or for every .5" lost.
Everyone achieving their goal will be rewarded with a goodie from me.
LET’S KEEP MELTING TEAM!
