[Challenge] New Years 2019 Pokemon Challenge – Week 0
Hello and Welcome to the LoseIt New Years 2019 Pokemon Challenge!
Your hosts this round will be u/Jameson1780, u/cosmam, u/sweetpsd, myself, and u/ThatCandadianGuy88 King of the Peasants! For those of you who do not know, this is the biggest challenge we’ve ever had!
This challenge is a team-based competition that will last for 8 weeks for which you set a weight-loss goal and then weigh in weekly, hoping to be at or beyond that goal by the end of the challenge. Challenge goals will be set this week.
***If you already signed up, please proceed to Step 4.***
Step 1 – Please sign up below.
NOTE: You will be randomly assigned to a team following the submission of your sign up form. Do not ask to be assigned to a particular team.
ALSO NOTE: If you sign up more than once please disregard all but your first sign up. The duplicates will be removed.
Step 2 – Visit the Challenge Tracker to find your team!
NOTE: Please give the tracker a few minutes to assign you to a team. Do not panic! Sometimes the spreadsheet takes a little extra time to update. Also there is only one tracker this time that will include weigh-in information as well as inter-team activity!
Step 3 – View the team list below and join your team’s subreddit.
NOTE: Joining your team subreddit isn’t mandatory but it should be. Being active with your team keeps participation up and might be that extra little push you need to keep you going. It could be the difference between an 8 week grind or 8 weeks of fun and support to lose the weight.
Step 4 – Weigh in for Week 0.
This is where you will choose your challenge goal weight as well. If you sign up today, you also need to weigh-in for week 0 sometime before January 18th.
Please try to choose a reasonable goal! If you gain one or two weeks, however, keep pushing and do not give up! We are now giving out inter-team points for higher weigh-in participations so please keep weighing in for not only yourself but also for the good of your team!
NOTE: If you submit multiple weigh-ins for the week, only your newest entry will be included in the tracker.
Step 5 (optional) – Submit activity information for the week for BONUS points!
For week 0, we are able to earn bonus points for our teams before the inter-team challenge begins! This week we are giving out the following points:
- 1 point for each team with a step count higher than 4M for the week
- 1 point for each team with total activity minutes count higher than 20K for the week
- 1 point for each team with weigh-in participation over 80%
- 1 point for the team with the highest weigh-in participation
NOTE: Please submit your activity+step count one day at a time. Any submissions that contain totals for the week or duplicate entries will be removed.
NOTE: Each week begins on a Friday, so you will have until the following Friday at 8am EST (when the next week is posted) to complete your weigh-in. You can weigh in multiple times during the week but only your most recent entry will be recorded on the tracker.
