Haha well, I'm finding myself mildly addicted to this site, so I'm pretty sure I can find some time for a team!
Is the sign up in a thread?

Good morning! :) BSS is a buddy support system that Chelly (dramachick90) came up with. What it is- Each month we put up a sign-up thread in which you are welcome to sign up for (it around the 7th of the month). Then you are assigned to a team that has about 8-12 members.This gives you a chance to get closer to a small group of ladies. Each week we do small challenges (such as drinking 10cups of water) to help motivate each other in this losing weight/staying healthy journey. Its a great way to get know people and lose weight at teh same time :). If you have any more questions- let me know :D

here's a copy and paste of teh sign-up thread with more info-


We create buddy support teams by random selection. Everybody will be asked to check in with their team mates as often as you can. We will be posting threads for each group to talk to each other on. The purpose of these groups is to bring people together in a more intimate way. Chelly designed this to help those of you who would like to have a core group of SP friends. Each team can motivate each other daily, you can report in and tell your team what you've done with your day, (fitness wise) and maybe even challenge your group to do something over the month that you will be together. Chelly usually teams up groups of 8-10 people. I'm not really sure how many we'll put on each team this time...it depends on participation. As usual, we will be randomly assigning this month.

Now, a couple of months, the BSS had started a new tradition. Chelly decided it was time to add weekly challenges. Here’s how that works…every Tuesday, the BSS captains will post on your team’s thread a challenge for you to do with your teammates. We’re also going to be having a little friendly competition between the teams. For each challenge that you do, you get a certain amount of points which will be added to your teams total. At the end of the month you are together, whichever team has the most total points will be named ‘April’s Strongest Buddies’.

With ALL that being said, the sign-ups will end Sunday night and you will receive a message with your assigned team by Monday.
PLEASE READ: Please do not sign up for this unless you are willing to put time into your team. We understand that everyone has a busy schedule so, please think about if you'll really have time to participate before signing up. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much for your time. We are super excited to be getting back to BSS!!!



Hope you join for May!! :D

After quite a bit of searching, I figured out that it stands for Buddy Support System..
but what is that? I know it sounds fairly straight forward, but what does it entail? And how do I join one?
