I know, I wasn't a very good thread keeper this time round, and obviously didn't update newbies with the rules decided previously.  Sorry about that.  

Maybe this should be more clear in the next thread BFM & DM?

 

For what it is worth, a quick calculation shows that including Bridesmother's info would not have changed the result, ie: Red team victory.  

 

As far as Mon/Tues weigh ins, I know that if I have weighed in late, I always post Monday's weight (not Tues/etc)... As long as others are doing the same, I think it's fine?!

Bridesmother, milk and whomever else is interested, Milk DID post the rule about missing 2 weighins - see post #36.  It is large, in color and bolded.  So yes we need to make sure it is posted on the next thread, but it was clearly posted on this thread.  Just an FYI . . .

I did modify the first post in the new thread to reflect the 2 weigh in rule. thumb.gif

Is there anything else we want to make sure is in the Requirements/Rules section?

That is a great idea to have it in the initial post - that way it doesn't get "lost" among the posts! 

 

The only other thing I can think of is what thecoffeebean brought up.  Quite frankly, I have been assuming that late posts were posting their monday weight even if they did not post it on monday.  The *request* is to weigh in early if you know you can't weigh in monday (and we have had a number of people post sunday weigh-ins for this reason).  But in my honest opinion, the weekly weigh ins are for accountability and the constest is decided on the last weigh in, so as long as that is a legitiment monday weigh in, the occasional tuesday weight during the challenge has no real affect.  But I would hate for this to be a point of contention.  So I am not sure if this is an issue that needs to be addressed or not.

 

 

I love the competitive side of this thread AND the supportive side of this thread, and I think having few but clear rules helps it so we can be both very supportive and very competitive at the same time.

Aww thanks! I'd really like to do the next challenge, but also talk more! I've been lifting weights for the past 3 months, and I really love doing it. I'm definitely in a routine now, which I need to keep motivated and see results. I do weightlifting 3x a week, and I've recently added in hill sprints on 1 or 2 of my off days.
