Are you ready to get SERIOUS about losing weight & living healthier, while having a PILE of fun competing with your SJ friends, associates & families… AND maybe win some BIG cash?
It’s a take off on “The Biggest Loser” reality TV show. As you’ll see below, everyone who enters will “win”…either in lost weight, &/or healthier lifestyles, fun, &/or MONEY! Following are the details for our first Challenge: “Sports Jabber Skinnies”
-Minimum 4 and maximum 40 participants for this Challenge to be held.
-Starts WEDNESDAY – 10/26/11; Lasts for 12 weeks (Yes, we KNOW that spans the holidays and that’s, in part, to help US ALL better manage our weight & health, yet still enjoy the normally “pounds-packing” holidays).
-All participants sign-up on, pay the nominal participation fee, & use (for personal stat tracking, “handouts”, etc) our “Lose Big” WLC site.
-Participation Fee: Only $25 (Non-Refundable)
-Sign-up Deadline: MONDAY – 10/24/11
-The group will “meet” at SJ…in the new SJ/Herbalife Weight Loss Challenge sub-forum (Ignore the Google map on the WLC site)…in weekly-designated “meeting” threads… once/week. “Meetings” will be a 48-hour window…beginning each WEDNESDAY @ 9pm ET…in which to check-in (post your CHANGES in stats (not actual weight unless you want to…talk about one’s progress, questions, etc). Coach and peers will help participants to understand how to choose healthy foods while educating them on the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise, essential elements of an effective weight loss program. We’ll also encourage each other and tell some jokes…especially about people who miss the “meetings”. LOL
-Of course, anyone can use the forum anytime. How long you hang around during the “meetings” or how much you post is totally up to you. But as you will see following, you do need to at least check-in (post in the thread) each week during the “window”. But, why wouldn’t you anyway, if you want accomplish your goals?
-48 hours prior to each “meeting” window, “the coach” will release a set of specific-topic diet/nutrition/health pdf slides (on the WLC site) for review, personal implementation, & “meeting” discussion. You will need an Adobe Reader to view the files. If you don’t have one, you can get a free one by clicking HERE. These files & other resources & guidance are professional, nutrition-based intellectual capital…researched & created by/for Herbalife, a $4 Billion health, diet & nutrition company. Your coach holds a degree in psychology, a minor in biology, has been trained by Herbalife to conduct WLCs…AND has lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks on a Herbalife MAINTENANCE program.
-If a participant gains weight from the last recorded “weigh-in” (which is private aka weigh yourself at home…posting net losses/gains will be on an honor system), they pay $1/lb gained. Participants’ weights are not made public; however, they will be able to enter/track their weight displayed on their private chart on the WLC site as they progress through the Challenge.
-Each participant is allowed one “absence” (aka not posting in the “meeting room” during the 48-hour window). Additional absences (for any reason) will be charged $5 for each absence.
-If a participant chooses to drop out, there will be NO refunds.
-By signing-up, each participant agrees to the No Refund policy and all of the penalties for gaining weight. AHHH…But what are we going to do with your money?
Check THIS out…
-50% of the participation fees goes to the first place winner (biggest loser), 30% to the 2nd place winner, & 20% to the 3rd place winner, all on most PERCENTAGE of body weight lost! So, let’s say only the minimum 4 people sign-up at $25 each…well…in that example, the biggest loser will win $50…which does not suck for you losing YOUR weight. If 10 people sign-up at $25 each, the biggest loser will win $125! If the max 40 people sign-up, then the biggest loser will win $FIVE HUNDRED FRIGGIN DOLLARS!
-The person who loses the most INCHES wins ALL of the money collected for gains & absences…unless they’re in the aforementioned top 3, in which case the money goes to the next person down on the “Inches Lost” list.
-So, ALL of the money collected goes into pools for the participants to potentially win!
–NOTE: To help ensure the integrity of the weight-gain penalties and overall prize-awarding process, all participants who want to be eligible for prizes MUST submit a “before” picture of themselves to yours truly (Reg) prior to the start of a Challenge. THEN…you MUST submit an “after” picture of yourself wearing the same clothes as in the “before” picture at the end of the Challenge. Your pictures will NOT be made public unless you authorize us to do so. BOTTOM LINE: Pictures are not a participation requirement, but without pictures, you ain’t winnin no jack!
-There is NO requirement for participants to purchase Herbalife products, such as “QuickStart” for its ‘lose up to 30 lbs in 30 days’ or “Formula 1 Instant Healthy Meal Shake Mix” for complete meal replacement weight loss. However, “D&D Enterprises“…an authorized Herbalife distributor…will make Herbalife nutritional, weight loss, & energy products available at a 10% discount* to SJ members via http://herbal-nutrition.net/regdev.
-”D&D Enterprises” will donate 2% of the retail value of all Herbalife products purchased during the “Sports Jabber Skinnies” Challenge to cancer research in the name of our beloved departed friend & SJ brother, Scott Wedell.
NOTE: One needs to be an SJ member to access the “meetings” thread/forum. That’s no big deal though since SJ membership is free and takes only about 10 seconds to join. This Challenge is open to any & all!
