@@@BLUE Team Starter Thread@@@ is the official thread for THIS week. Each week I will post a new thread with the Week # in it. ALL will look something like this:

@@@BLUE Team Week ? Weigh-In and Chat@@@

? will be filled in with the week #.

I will try to get the new one posted by Sunday evening, so that they are available to you for weigh-in first thing Monday morning. I may occasionally get it up on Saturday evening. It just depends on how busy my weekend is at the time.

Good question Heather.

Take care,
Angel

Which thread is our official "hang out"? Is the starter thread just to post our info? Will there be a separate thread to report weigh-ins?

Shannon-
There was a total of 15 that are back from round 3. One has been misplaced to the GREEN team and I am trying to get her back. I have heard from 8 of those returning. Have you made it over to our NEW thread? That is where everyone is now checking in. If you want I can sparkmail you a list of our returning team, as well as a list of our newbies. Just let me know.

See you on the other board,
Angel

HORNSFAN1 to get your banner you just need to create your sparkpage. Its one of the options there near the bottom of the page (maybe), but you will get to choose a theme and whether you want to count pounds lost or your actual weight progression.emoticon

Hi, I'm Beth and I live in Ocean County, NJ. I have 3 great kids, 9 yo g, 6 yo b, 3 yo b. I'm so excited to start this challenge!

My starting weight is 373
My goal weight is 348.

I weigh in on Thursdays!

I know my goal is a big one but I had a gain last week and I've had a great week this week so far and I'm hoping for a big loss this week. I've peeked a few times already and it's looking good. Now to just stay on track. I've started an excercise routine that I really think will work and I'm *almost* enjoying (LOL) so I think with a lot of dedication I can pull it off! :0)

Welcome Jill. Wow, you have your hands full! Sorry about the snow. I'm originally from Virginia and hated it. Couldn't wait to get out, have now been in Texas for 11 years and wouldn't live anywhere else. :)

Hi, I'm Robin. I live in beautiful Pflugerville, Texas (just north of Austin) and have 2 daughters ages 15 & 8. I am currently at 256.4 and my goal over the next 8 weeks is to get to 245. I am unable to do a lot of exercise right now due to a pinched nerve, but I will do what challenges I can.

I am very excited about this and can not wait to get to know each of you.

Congratulations, you a part of the BLUE team!!!

Over the next 8 weeks your captain (AND5771) and co-captain will lead and encourage you to your weight loss goals for that time.

At the end of this 8 week challenge, you are more than welcome to sign up for the following challenge; either staying with you current team or choosing to move to another team!

Each team is run a little bit differently but the basics are the same:

1. Set an obtainable goal for 8 weeks!
2. Be supportive of your teammates!
3. Participate as much as possible; the team with the most interaction is usually the one that wins!!!

Starting week (this week) you will need to post your starting weight! Weigh ins will be Monday (or Tuesday) If you weigh on a different day, thatís okay; just use the recent weigh in. Your team captain will be reporting back to the Organizer by COB Wednesday!

TEAM STATS (Pounds Lost & Percentage Lost) will be posted on Thursdays!!!!

Occasionally there will be team challenges; these usually hit over the weekends, since thatís when most of us are vulnerable.

Good luck everyone and have fun!!!
