sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_
thread.asp?board=0x68423x66641053


I am looking forward to BLC40 (Spark People's much better version of a biggest loser challenge). I have asked to be put on the Determined Desert Tortoises team again.

They are an awesome bunch of people. So laid back, welcoming, encouraging. I've got to know them quite well over previous rounds, and am looking forward to getting to know the new members when the new round starts. Could that be you?

If you want to join, first you have to register on the link above and follow the instructions on that team.

The next round starts on Wednesday 8th May (weigh ins are always on a Wednesday), but doors open on 1st May, and registration ends on 28th April. Some teams are already full - the sooner you sign up the more likely it is that you will get on the team of your choice.

It's all quite full on for a newbie in the first week or so, but once the new round settles down it is awesome.

This round I am looking forward to learning to do strength training (I hope to actually make it a regular part of my life this round - I think it is vital if I want to get and stay fit - even if there is a lot to learn, I am sure I will get the hang of it)

If you join the DDTs you will be well looked after. Hope to see you there? Lots of fun challenges, but we are a low pressure team, offering lots of encouragement and support.

If the tortoises are not for you, there are loads of other completely different teams!
And if you miss the sign up deadline - you can still join as a member of the White Rabbits team.

I would like to tell you all a bit about the team I am a cappie on: The Powerful Prism Panthers. This team is the maintainers group (or near maintainers). Our members know how to lose weight. Our challenge is to :
1) KEEP it off
2) Keep it off (or lose those last few pesky pounds) while managing "real life" at the same time.

We are a low-pressure group, but excellent at support!!

Registration is ending soon but there is still time to register for a team of your choice AND later comers get welcomes onto the White Rabbit team (late for a very important date).

This is a great team that actually works to encourage weight loss in participants.
With many flavors of smaller teams so you can pick one that fits for you.

If you are looking for a great challenge, check out the BLC one.

Teams are different, so you can find one that fits for you (amount of chatting, participation, etc.). No matter what, each team can encourage you to lose weight with challenges and support.

Find one that fits for you.
Many teams do fun challenges that encourage you to work on your weight loss tasks.

Resolute Renegades is different. We focus on accountability and having you figure out what gives you consistent weight loss and then figure out how to accomplish those tasks throughout the week. We don't chat a lot so if you want support we are not the best fit, nor if you want to do a lot of connecting with people in the group. But we do focus strongly on getting done what helps us lose weight.

Come register for BLC40 (yup round 40 of this challenge) to get a slot for the challenge starting on May 8th (doors open around May 1st so people can jump into their team and figure out what is being asked of them).
If you want to start now, there are a couple of in between challenges going on (Renegades is one of those), so come jump on in.

BLC Round 40 Open for Registration!

If you've never participated in a round of the BLC, you owe it to yourself to check it out! I have been involved for several rounds now, and find it to be the thing that keeps me moving forward in my weight loss journey. I lost 11 pounds in the last round!

The challenge is set up as several different teams, and each has a bit of a different flavor so you can find one that meets your needs. I am part of the Fuchsia Beauties International (FBI) team. We are a challenge-focused team, meaning that we encourage each other to participate in all weekly challenges throughout the round. The challenges involve things like getting in your fitness minutes, tracking your food daily (in whatever format works for you), eating your fruits and vegetables, drinking water,posting on the team chat thread, and just taking time for YOU! We also have a weekly step challenge. You will hear this for all BLC teams - the focus is on participation, not perfection. If this sounds like something you would like, we would love to have you on the FBI team!

If the FBI doesn't sound like quite the right fit for you, there are many other teams that would also welcome you. The registration link is below. It has much more information about the challenge and all the different teams. Check it out - you might find it's just what you need!

BLC40 - SPRING/SUMMER ROUND - REGISTERING NOW!

If you are looking for a challenge to help you lose weight look no further than the Biggest Loser Challenge. I have been doing the BLC for several years now, and it has definitely helped me lose weight and maintain the loss.

There is a "Biggest Loser" each week for each team and the challenge as a whole, but the emphasis, at least on my team the Bronze Wellness Warriors, is on participation not perfection. There are other more competitive teams as well so click on the link in the post below and have a look at our challenge. There is sure to be a team that's right for you!

If you are running around in circles, not sure what to do to get the extra weight off, this challenge is for you! There are teams for support, teams to push you & teams to challenge you.

I have been a member of the Bronze Wellness Warriors for a few rounds now & have found a great group to support me. I'm making friends while learning a healthy lifestyle. I love having a place to come to anytime I need some extra encouragement or need a new idea to spice up my routine. We are a pretty chatty team which means you will get an answer to your question or get the support you need from multiple people in less than 24 hours. Weightloss is not fun (to me) but being a part of this team doesn't make it seem so daunting! Try it out, you won't regret it!!!

I have been doing the BLC challenge for quite a few years now and I can tell you that if you are serious about losing weight, you need to join us. I had been on a plateau for a couple of years and couldn't budge from it until I joined. With their help, I was able to make it to my ultimate weight loss goal. I am a member of the Navy Ninjas who are a wonderful, chatty, supportive group. Join us. You won't regret it!

I am looking forward to BLC40 (Spark People's much better version of a biggest loser challenge). I have asked to be put on the Determined Desert Tortoises team again.



They are an awesome bunch of ladies. So laid back, welcoming, encouraging. I've got to know them quite well over previous rounds, and am looking forward to getting to know the new members when the new round starts. Could that be you?

If you want to join, first you have to register on the link above and follow the instructions on that team.

The next round starts on Wednesday 8th May (weigh ins are always on a Wednesday), but doors open on 1st May, and registration ends on 28th April.

It's all quite full on for a newbie in the first week or so, but once the new round settles down it is awesome. And of course it's Spring/Summer round so I have lots to do, including - sorting out my new garden, binge-decorating my new home to get it all finished so we can enjoy it, as well as the usual holidays and going out and about exploring and enjoying the local area/seaside/countryside, etc. For that reason, I am going to limit my Sparking to just the BLC40 stuff. Yes - I am going to participate in BLC40 (and future rounds) to the full, and enjoy the breaks between rounds.

This round I am looking forward to learning to do strength training (I hope to actually make it a regular part of my life this round - I think it is vital if I want to get and stay fit - even if there is a lot to learn, I am sure I will get the hang of it)

If you join the DDTs you will be well looked after. Hope to see you there? Lots of fun challenges, but we are a low pressure team, offering lots of encouragement and support. If the tortoises are not for you, there are loads of other completely different teams!

It's super inspiring! And if you aren't really looking to lose, there's even a team for those transitioning to maintenance or already at goal. The BLC is super inclusive and welcoming. And FUN!

Hi I'm Mary and I'm a member of the Hot mocha maniacs. We are a very supportive team. I didn't lose quite as much as I had hoped this round but 9 pounds isn't anything to laugh at. At least it wasn't 9lb in the other direction. My younger sister joined me this round and last but she lost more than I did. I'll have to buckle down. You're welcome to join us. We are very friendly team.

Hi, I am Jane, the captain of the Resolute Renegades team of BLC. We are a little different than most of the BLC teams. We focus just on weight loss. We are big on accountability and have a web page tracker that allows you to track just about anything you do that help you lose weight. We are also focus on figuring out what helps you consistently lose weight and then working to get those tasks done daily/weekly - in other words figuring out how to do a lifestyle where you can consistently lose weight over the long term.

We are not a chatty group, so we are not a good fit for people who want a lot of support or are struggling to find their way - other BLC groups provide that. We are for people who need some accountability with checkins. We are a participation team (participation not perfection) so you will need an idea of your food and exercise plan to follow (tweaking things as you go). Putting in some effort is required even though there will be ups and downs. We encourage working to slowly change your habits/lifestyle to incorporate the things that help you lose weight.

We are one of the teams hosting a challenge right now, before BLC40 starts so anyone who wants to can jump on in to ours or the Munion team who is also hosting a challenge.

If our team does not pull at you, there are a lot of different "flavors" of BLC teams so rest assured you can find one that fits you. All the teams will encourage you to lose weight. So come join us at www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messagebo

BLC is the ONLY challenge that has worked for me. I have been on multiple BLC teams & have never found a "bad" one. EVERYONE is supportive & keeps you motivated to stick to your lifestyle change on your journey. I have stumbled across so many amazing tips throughout my time in the BLC from my fellow teammates.

Try it out! This may just be THE thing that helps you take off the weight & leave it for good! You will find amazing support from other people just like you that know exactly what you're going through!

Bronze Wellness Warriors are a great team to keep you motivated & make sure you get the support you need. Even through the rough patches they will keep you going & make sure you don't give up on yourself!

Sign up now and make this BLC challenge the start to your new healthy life!

BLC is an awesome way to build a support network for your healthy journey!!! The challenges are very motivating and team interaction provides advice and a sounding board for those tough days.

Hot Mocha Maniacs is a challenge-based team, providing structure and friendly competition. There is no set "diet" or way of eating - our team members are vegetarian, keto, WW, calorie counters, etc - everybody does their own thing and finds support, respect, and encouragement.



Sign up now and make this Spring and Summer your time to get serious and reach your goals!!!

Been doing BLC for several years now. I am on a very supportive team, but you can choose a competitive team or a team that will challenge you, or one that is focused more on fitness or nutrition. The challenges are fun and the emphasis is on participation not perfection.
