Default Signups for TBL "We Are Family" Challenge - Deadline September 6th

We are family.... I've got all my sisters and me!

It's that time again! Where one challenge ends, another begins!

NBC has announced the premiere of the new Biggest Loser: Families for September 16th. Since we are only doing Biggest Loser Challenges during when the show airs, it looks like we've got a new challenge on our hands!

We are gearing up for the holiday season, and for those of you that aren't counting, there's only 143 days until Christmas. Think about all the weight loss work you can get done in that amount of time!

We will be starting the "We Are Family" challenge on September 14th, but we will be collecting starting weights from September 7th until September 13th.

I can not stress enough how imperative it is for you to sign up and be ready to weigh in by September 6th so that you don't miss out on this challenge.

For Returning Participating Members of the "Just Beachy" Challenge:
If you posted a minimum of once per week and you were in the challenge until at least week 8, you are eligible to pick the team that you want to be on in the "We Are Family" challenge. This is just an eligibility and does not 100% guarentee you a spot on your stated team. This is due to the fact we may have to switch people around to make the teams even if not enough new people signup. Please see the Returning Participants Team Requests thread and post those requests HERE.

Please sign up by posting that you want to join this challenge here.

We are reverting back to our standard 13 week challenge instead of 15 weeks like the "Just Beachy" Challenge. The challenge will end on December 13th and the winner will be announced on December 16th.

Because this challenge takes us through some holiday time, it is important you understand the following before you signup:
  • You need to participate by posting in team chats at minimum 1 time a week
  • You can not be crowned Biggest Loser if you don't participate
  • Once your Freebies are used up, we can't except a vacation excuse for you missing a weigh in
  • There are no earned vacation freebie weeks for this challenge
There will be a FAQ thread created later today with the full rules and regulations as well as the availability for you to ask any questions you may have there.

Thanks so much for helping to keep this challenge going! Here's to a great summer of a new and slimmer you!
