Oh, Im sorry. I completely forgot to weigh in yesterday. I even got on the scale and everything. It got so hectic at work that I never got a chance to get on to submit my weight. So sorry to let the team down. Good luck to you!

Oooooh. That stinks. Im sure they wont be lenient. It sounds like the rules are the rules. But best of luck to you. It was a blast having you on our team. We would love to have you continue posting to our thread.

NBR1MOMNDAD, I went back and read my response and I'll edit it because I can see where you might think I was being rude. In all honesty I was trying to explain in the most detail as I could while being in a big hurry at the time.

This is time consuming and I am here for you all. In emails and posts, it's easy to read into the words. Please give me the benefit of a doubt and I'll be happy to do the same for you.

If you want to address issues with the challenge, etc., please know that I check my sparkmail regularly and am always open to suggestions!!

With Sparklove,

KAKE138

KAYKOLARIK, I'm sorry you were dropped. I absolutely love being co-leader to this group, however, I struggle with the BLC almost daily. It was dropped into my lap and I felt that instead of letting it all dissipate I would pick up the slack in order to help my 20's group. I honestly hate with a passion letting people drop out of the challenge.

It's so hard for me to tell people "no" and I feel the same way you do- that it's a challenge for us all to be successful. However, the rules were established in the beginning for several reasons. If there were no deadline then the challenge would be nearly impossible to maintain. Imagine trying to gather information on 30 people once per week at no set deadline. It would be insanity. This is just one of the reasons.

If I would have allowed you to stay it would not have been fair to the other participants as well. This is why there is a no-fault policy, because if it were up to me to decide, this BLC would be a love fest of happiness with no rules. And actually, we may not have this challenge again for a while.

Anyway, I hope you understand, but if you don't please know that I'm still here- cheering you on and I wish you the most success in the world.

I'm just here trying to help others in their success. I'm sorry if you hate me! :)

Thanks so much! You keep up the great work too! What actually got me kinda heated with her was her response to you- I didn't even notice I was dropped til I went back and reread the whole thing- I thought she was rude to you too. You guys all keep up the great work and I hope you win! I will keep in touch with you guys on this thread anyways! =)

Kaykolarik-
You are still a winner in my eyes. I saw that they did not add your name to the list when she posted the results so i asked a simple question about it. I felt like her response to me was rude. It was about 4 paragraphs long explaining the rules to me, like I didnt already know them or like I didnt understand or something.
Im sorry you got dropped. We will miss you as part of the team. But like I said, you are still a winner. We would love to have you keep on replying to our team.
I agree with you about not being on here for easter. Many of us see holidays as time to spend with our family not time to be on the internet 24/7. I can see how you missed the posts about the deadline. Good luck to you. I know you can do this!!!!

Sorry Team! Apparently they dropped me cuz I weighed in a lil late, Monday morning- not like it was even a few days! - which to to honest I find ridiculous since it was Easter- my fault for not reading the rules or whatever but it's like we are all here to lose weight and encourage each other- it's not as though 100,000 dollars is on the line here!

I think it went well! I will say however that I think you need to get clarification of who is on our team and who isn't... I think some people are confused. I would also request that the dead weight gets dropped with some type of handicap for us or something. IDK...

I really hope not! But I have not heard anything from the other two. Maybe they dont know this thread is here. I sent a message to the two of them this morning letting them know that this is here. Hopefully they will come join us. Then as a team we can discuss what is happening.

Are you feeling better? I saw that the soup was helping! emoticon

Good for you! Keep up the good work. It sounds like you really know what you want out of this. I know exactly what you are saying. I am only 24 and I feel 40 somedays because I am so wore down and beat from this extra weight I carry around. I have three young children and I really want to be able to chase them around and play tag without wanting to sit down after the first 30 seconds. I want this weight loss and I am ready to kick those lbs to the curb!

Well I turned 27 this March 8th and started SPARK with diet and exercise. on March 8th I was 333 now I am 320 give or take a couple floating pounds. I have been married to a beautiful woman for 5 years and have two kids 11 and 8. My goal is to lose 100 pounds by my next birth day. I have said this before but I really just want to know what it feels like to be in my twenties before they are gone. I work for a non profit organization that focuses on empowering lives of those suffering from mental illness through peer support through a strength based curricula. If I were to succeed I believe it would spark a countless number of people!

Since we are a team, I think its a good idea we tell a little bit about our selves.

I am 24 years old. I live in Bellevue NE. I have three children, ages 6,4, and 7 months. I currently work at a hospital here in town as a clerk/tech. I just found out I have been accepted into nursing school. So I will be starting that the end of August.
I have been married to my husband for 4 years in about a week. We have been together for 7 1/2 years all together.
My goal is to lose 100 lbs. When I started this weight loss challenge on January 1st 2010 I weighed in at 243.6. I am currently down to 221.2. To motivate me I have participated in many different challenges. I just recently started my own. And then I joined this one in hopes to meet some new great people and tackle more of my goal. I am hitting the gym 3 days a week. And then the days I dont go to the gym I try to workout at home.

Well, thats just a little about myself. Whose next????

Welcome! Im glad to see that some one else has joined me. I set up this thread awhile ago and I had four others on my team. The only person who responded was nicole. And then she disappeared on me. I was getting really worried that I would be in this alone. Then the leader reassured me that I would get new team members today. Im super excited!
Together we can do this!!!
Best of luck to you.

Thanks for the encouraging words. I really need them this week. I dont know what has been up with me lately. I feel like I have gotten no where in this diet and I feel like I have done nothing but ate the entire kitchen. So this week I am staying on track. No eating out, no snacking in the cupboards, and alot more working out.
I cant explain to you how glad I am that someone finally responded from our group. I understand how busy things can get. As you saw, I have alot going on as well. But I have to do this somehow. I really look forward everyday to getting on to sparkpeople. I always find some encouraging people on here.
Well since we are a team what do you say we try to hit some goals together?? I really dont know what we can do to make this better since it is online but I am always up for a challenge.

Sorry, I would have replied earlier or posted, but I've just been SUPER RIDICULOUSLY STUPIDLY busy. I honestly have NO idea how I managed to lose anything this week, I've been baaaaaad. 0.2 is still a loss, even if it is a little one - I took a peek at your sparkpage, and it certainly looks like you've got a lot on your plate, with 3 kids and all. So, own that loss! Celebrate it! I'm proud of you :)

Hope you have a great day at work, I will probably check in again at the end of the day.

Hi Ashley!

I just wanted to pop in and say HI. I joined this challenge to kick-start my motivation - I lost 20 pounds and gained 5 back, and I don't want to backtrack any further than that! Good news - I lost 2.4 pounds this week! (287.8 down to 285.4, have to update my ticker!) but honestly, I don't know how it happened. I haven't been eating the best, but I've been trying.

This is my first challenge, too, so I think that we can definitely make it anything that we want to! I think the best thing for me is support, check-ins, etc. Know that I am always here if you need a listening ear!

Hello everyone.

I would like to start by saying I am super excited to join this challenge. I have a goal to lose 100 lbs and I REALLY need some friends to help motivate me. I have never joined a biggest loser challenge so Im not sure how in depth each team gets with each other. Does anyone have any ideas of what we can do together as a team?????
