Hello and Welcome to the LoseIt Fall 2018 Super Mario Challenge!
Sign ups are now closed!
Challenge Tracker Tracker Page Here!
Note: You can now submit multiple weigh-ins per week, however only your newest submission will be included on the tracker for the challenge. You can submit your weight anytime between when this form opens (on the Friday listed on the schedule, e.g., “October 12 – Week 0”) until 7:59am EST the following Friday.
Teams & Captains:
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 you want. Please do not ask to be assigned to a particular team.
If you have any questions, problems, concerns, ideas, or just want to drop us all a line, please use the message the challenge admin feature, which you can find in the r/loseit sidebar or by clicking here. Responding to this thread is great, but ultimately if you want to make sure all of us read it, the message the challenge admin feature is the way to go.
Please also note that we are not the r/loseit moderators. We’re volunteers and everyday users who run a specific aspect of one of the many interactive community elements of r/loseit. If you have questions about r/loseit that aren’t specific to the challenge, please take a look at the sidebar.

- 1 point for each team with a total minutes count higher than 10k for the week
What are we doing/how are we doing it:
We are tracking exercise minutes, strength minutes and Steps. You have until Friday 8am EST of next week to submit your minutes and step count. We would like to point out this is entirely optional, so if you can’t do it or it’s not for you – that’s cool.
You can submit them each day or wait until Thursday to submit them all. The form is re-submittable, but please only submit one form for each day – multiple forms for one day (e.g. 3x Tuesday) will be deleted. As with all things, if you notice an error or forgot to add something, tell us and we’ll fix it. That’s goes for everything – misspelled username, used the wrong unit of measure, transposed steps and workout minutes, etc. Please enter numbers only. If you jog for an hour, it’s just 60. If you get 12,000 steps, it’s just 12000.
What counts as Exercise or Strength Minutes?
Whatever you can do safely. For example, jogging outside, running on the treadmill, climbing stairs, going for walks, etc, all count as exercise minutes. Strength minutes include all types of weight lifting and strength increase workouts. If an activity is both cardio and strength focused, it doesn’t really matter which category you assign it to as long as you don’t double count it (aka don’t put the activity in as both strength and exercise). Also please don’t count strength or exercise minutes from during work unless they were measured by a fitness tracker. This is because the main point of the inter-team challenge is to encourage people to start exercising or doing strength workouts in their spare time, or to continue if they’re already going! If you have any questions or need clarification, please feel free to ask!
Safety is key.
Feel free to contribute as much time you can put in safely. Someone else might be running a marathon, which takes hours, while you can only squeeze out fifteen minutes on a treadmill – that is perfectly fine! Don’t compare yourself to that person. Don’t hurt yourself trying to help your team. Every minute is valuable to your team, whether it’s 10 minutes or 100, so only do as much as you can handle without injury.
