All you need to do to start a new thread is go to the top of this page under the search box. There are 3 choices ... reply ... create a new topic ... and subscribe to this discussion. Click on create a new topic and type in your team name. That's all there is to it!

As for team jobs ... they aren't assigned ... the team members pick the job they want. You can look back to last months challenge for some descriptions, or create new ones to suit your needs. Mostly you need someone to oversee the team, and someone to keep track of your weight. The other jobs can be things like team chef to give good healthy recipes, cheerleader, team fitness coach to give little challenges, etc. Some jobs can be shared by everyone ... the fitness coach can be everyone picks a day and suggests a mini challenge for that day. You can have a food coach too!

Have fun with it!

How do we start a new thread? And who is Team #1 Leader. [Are we calling ourselves "Chief Joe and the Squaws?")
Are the other "positions" assigned? I'll do whatever I can. Let me know.

My start weight: 178

Name idea: Chief Joe & the Squaws

I'm a go for whatever name we choose. I probably won't be on SP again until Monday. I need some down time after the crazy days I've just had! I'll be up & at 'em on Monday though! Hope everyone has a great weekend!! emoticon

As soon as you pick your team name your team leader needs to start a new thread with your name so you have a place to weigh-in and keep in touch.

Let encourage each other not to snack in the evenings and to exercise instead.

I see a lot of familiar names on our team! WooHoo! Anyone have any festive ideas for team names? emoticon emoticon
I've turned-on my thinking cap, but it usually takes a bit of time to warm up!

Team #1
Here is your place to plan for your November Challenge ... if we have more people sign up for week 1 I'll add them by Saturday November 1. Don't forget to weigh-in on that day by 11PM. If you can't weigh in on Saturday you can weigh in earlier (Friday) but not later (Sunday). If you miss weigh-in you will have to wait until the next week to rejoin.

Here are the members for your team so far:
Tinkky
MusRev626
TheFutureMrsB
Zookeeper9996
Penga4
MrsLPN2007

Now it's time to pick your team leader, your team name, assign a few jobs (someone to keep track of weight loss each week, another to give little fitness challenges throughout the week etc.) and plan some strategies. Good luck to everyone ... and lets see how much total weight we can lose before the holidays.

Your team leader needs to start a new thread with your team name ... that is where you will check in (daily if possible) to support and encourage each other throughout the challenge.

GOOD LUCK!!!
