Are you talking about the symbol with the arms up in the air? I have found you need to make sure the blue bar on the bottom of the screen is as far to the right as you can get it. Some moves during the workout are hard to keep at that spot to get your icons.

As long as I'm not the only one ;-)

To be on vaca for 3 weeks and only gain 1 pound, that's fantastic! You'll probably lose a bunch this week when you get back to eating healthy.

Hi
Glad to see there are other bl users here. I just finished my session and no I was not the biggest loser! I actually gained a pound! I was on vacation for 3 weeks though and ate and drank anything I wanted. Guess that did me in. I just started my new session so hopefully I'll do better this time. I've had the same issue with the challenges. I came in 1st place too and it did not show any icons. maybe it's a flaw in the game.

I just finished my program today, I was so thrilled to be the biggest loser!!!! BTW Mine did the same thing today, I finished first in the challenge and it gave 0 icons, so I have no idea what that was about???? I'm started the intermediate program tommarow and can't wait.

I feel like I get a really good workout on BL, and I'm definitely sore afterwards. EASA is definitely more fun, though, so I can see myself "playing" on it more. I love watching my BL character losing weight and getting skinnier - something my Wii Fit character has yet to do!

My hubby said he'd buy me More Workouts after I finish a 30-day challenge.

I have EA Active also, and yes I agree it is better than BL, kinda. I have my level too low on BL so my workouts aren't as good as they could be, so Im waiting to finish my 4 week challenge to bump it up a bit. But I think that BL is really motivating. It makes me workout on days that I normally wouldn't, plus the tracking and challenges. I just love it when I've done really good and my character gets on that scale and loses a lot of weight. I like the competitive nature of it, even if it's not real. However, EA Active is definitly the one to go to for a great workout. I still want to get the more workouts and I can't wait for the release of EA Active 2.0, I think its going to be in the fall.

Thanks Chris. It's a shame because it is a kinda fun game - although now that I've tried EA Sports Active I wish I had just gotten that one instead.

Wow that really stinks, wish I knew the problem. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I don't think there are many of us that use or talk about the Biggest Loser game too much. I hope you find or figure out the problem. Good Luck!

Are you looking at maybe the Nutrition Challenge instead? If you don't complete those or accept them you will end up with 0 icons in it. You should see 2 challenge categories, one is the exercise the other is the nutrition. Hope that helps, that is the only thing I could think of.

Help! This is my 3rd challenge/elimination and every time I've gotten 1st place in the challenge. Then when it shows your score for each category (how many BL icons out of five) it always shows 0 for challenges! When I click on it, it says "1st" and Performance Level is still 0? What am I doing wrong?
