I assume for the start weight you wanted the weight I signed in with originally on Dec 26 even though it is less today (Jan1). Is that corrects or do I need to go edit it?

Default Basic questions

I've been assigned the blue team and VERY excited to do this! I'm new to the website as well as the format, etc. Am I included automatically into the related threads, challenges, etc.? Is there a central place I go to each day to check on those types of things? I appreciate your time! Kathi

You are correct, the starting weight on your teams weigh in thread should be whatever your original sign in weight was. You'll just have a big loss the first week!

You will need to go to the Blue Team Weigh In thread a make one post for your weight. You will come back and edit that same post each week with your new weight......here is a link to that thread Weight-ing on Spring Blue Team Weigh In Thread

Each week there will be a team chat thread and a exercise challenge thread. Join right in your chat thread! That is how we encourage and support each other. The exercise challenges haven't been posted yet, but when they do you just post to join. These threads will be in the Biggest Loser Challenges forum, probably very close to the top.

Hi Passionista! I double checked the weigh in thread, and the reason you wouldn't have been added to a team was that you signed up but never returned to add your starting weight

What we can do though is to add you to the RED TEAM as an "unofficial" team member. Which would mean that you would still be part of the team.. take part in all of the weigh ins, chat and challenges following the same guidelines as everyone else, only difference would be that your weight would not count towards the teams final percentage. But still reap all the benefits of being part of a team, as that is all of our ultimate goal... to have the support, encouragement and motivation to lose weight.
If this works for you please let me know and I will add you as an unofficial member and then we will be all set!

I dont have a question but I just want to thank you Angela and you Antonia for organizing this! I've never been one who was good at organizing things and I love it when other people do so that I can be part of things! You guys have done an awesome job and I am so excited to be part of this! Thanks again!

Oh, I feel so stupid. I wish I was able to receive PM's, as if I had known, I would have remedied it.

Yes, please do add me as unofficial. I appreciate it and am excited to participate. The support is what matters anyway!

okay, so a week from today is the first weigh-in, so i went out and got a better scale, bc the one I have has a huge 8 lbs variance depanding on how you distribute your weight, and i didnt want to be tempted to cheat. Now, i have the new scale blues, my wieght this am was 257.8, not 254.3 and i was wondering how to remedy this so it doesnt count as a gain for the team.

thanks!

I put on 5lbs over Christmas and New Year and registered my weight before Xmas because I wouldn't have internet access over the holidays. I am hoping that my first week will be so good that it won't matter.

I don't think we'll be allowed to alter our starting weights, as I bet everyone has fluctuated over the holidays one way or another. Hmph.
