Question Biggest Loser Challenge

Is anyone doing the Biggest Loser Challenge? I saw it under Announcements but the link takes me to the 3FC 5k run/walk and I can't find the Biggest Loser Challenge Forum anywhere. I'm probably staring right at it but...lil help?

AND if you're doing it, let me know!

There are two announcements going on right now - one about the 3FC 5K, the other about the Biggest Loser Challenge. Click on the link in the FIRST post in the thread to go to the Biggest Loser challenge sign up. Click on the link in the SECOND post in the thread to go to the 5K signup.

Hey - I'm doing it. Actually, I won this last one. If you go to the exercise forum, you will find that there is a subforum just for the Biggest Loser, and then ANOTHER subforum for the Biggest Loser Challenges. It sounds a lot more confusing than it really is! You should do it - it is tons of fun!!!

MSTeacher ~ CONGRATS on winning the last BL Challenge! How awesome!! I'm assuming you just win bragging rights, correct? (I don't mean that to sound negative at all...) There's no "real" prize, right? Other than how awesome you must feel about yourself, of course!

Just the title and the bragging rights! But it was worth it for the accountability and encouragement everyone provided!

Congrats on the win, that's awesome. I guess I need to clear out my computer memory or whatever you do because I clicked the second one to look at 5k and THEN went to look at the first one and the link took me to the 5k. I tried several times. Thanks for giving me directions on where to find the forum from the main forum menu. I guess that's the way I'll access it.

Aww Shy, nah... Come lurk on the MRC boards and you'll see there are plenty of people there kicking my BUTT! And they're signing up for the challenge so I know I have some stiff competition!

I'm not to sure what all the challenge entails, but I'm going to go for it. Hopefully my competitive streak will help me meet my weighloss goals for the summer!

I'm signed up! It's based on percentages, so I'm going to have to lose LOTS of pounds to keep up with everyone! But even if I don't keep up, as long as I weigh less at the end of the challenge than I do at the beginning, then it's all worth it

I want to do it. I stink at losing weight, so I know I can't win, but I know trying will be good for me.
