pictures and starting weight


A couple people have had this question, so I thought I'd address it here.

The reason why I'm accepting starting weight's and before pictures now, is because I don't want there to be a mad rush for everyone to get me their stats on the actual day of June 1st. Some people have been slow to move (and I totally get that, cause I have joiners anxiety like no one's business) but I don't want to be hounding anyone to get me their pictures on the day of.

This is just to give people a couple days to take their before picture and send it to me.

To be very clear: The competition starts June 1st. So plese don't start losing all that weight JUST yet...start June 1st like we have scheduled. June 1st is a Tuesday, which means every subsequent Tuesday will be your new weigh in day. After we start, I'll need your new weight every tuesday, then results will be posted the following day.

Sorry if this wasn't clear...or if this isn't the most efficient way to do things. It's probably not, but it was the best idea I had at the time. I'm a biggest loser hosting virgin.

FYI the best way is for everyone to send me their pictures and starting weights ON June 1st, but if it's the day before, I'm not going to get all cybil on your ass. Just please, let's all start on Tuesday, m-kay?

Thanks for the questions folks, I appreciate the feedback.

PS, no one has sent me any weights or photos yet, so we're all very equal.


  1. I can't do it until AT LEAST Tuesday because the scale I use is at work and we're off Monday for the holiday. But I'll try to get it to you Tuesday :)

  2. I think you're doing an excellent job. Thanks for putting up with all our questions :)

  3. I am hoping that you will consider two things:
    1) Eventually giving us some demographic data about each person-just for curiosity's sake.
    2) Requiring a picture of feet-on-scale for the final weigh in.

    Thanks! Heidi
