Here is the low down!

Melissa feel free to add to this if you find that I missed something.

  • Start date is September 1st 2009. Although people that still would like to join that are late in finding out can join up until September 5th 2009.
  • You need to contribute $30.00-$40.00 to the money pot. Send the money thru paypal to this email addy: tammyjarman@gmail.com If you don't have a paypal, I can send you an invoice and you can pay with your debit card. If that won't work for you, use the same email addy to send me a note so I can send you my house addy for you to mail me money! :) Money must be sent by Saturday September 5th 2009.
  • You must have your own blog. AND update it once a week! (Post the link to your blog in the comments of this post!)This is so we can add you to the blogroll to keep up with your success, if you write it down you are more likely to stick to it, also we like to give support to our group members. Have a blogroll on your blog with all of us on there.
  • No diet drugs of any kind are allowed, and of course no puking or starving to loose weight. If anyone hears of anyone doing this, you will be immediately disqualified.
  • The money that you give to the BIGGEST LOSER GROUP is nonrefundable.
  • We will have a weigh in every 1st of every month. (Digital scales only) We will ask you to put a household item in the photo so we know it is legit. YOU must send your photo to Melissa no later than 12 noon on the weigh in day, or you will not be eligible for the monthly prize. This has been a issue in the past.... Melissa does have a life and would rather not sit and wait for photos to come in. So try really hard to get it to her ASAP!
  • First weigh in is on September 1st 2009. Please put a Pen by the scale (as the household item) Please send photos to Melissa at: missa4_25@msn.com
  • Check this blog often, this is where we can communicate with you best!!!
Here is to good health! We can do this!! I am excited!

Is there a cut off day? Like can we recruit people till Friday the 4th? People aren't at any sort of advantage for starting late so.. just a thought!

Tammy said...

I will add the cut off date... Thanks Karilynn!

Thanks.

Misty said...

I need to go buy a digital scale. Does anyone know where to get a cheap good one?

Karilynn said...

Misty!!
I bought mine at walmart and it works alright! ;o)

Misty said...

I will have to check there. Money is tight but we need a new scale since ours is not digital and weighs different depending on where we stand by 10 pounds.

Supermom75 said...

I got mine at walmart for about $5 dollars and I've had it for a year.

Love the new rule about having to have your weight in by noon or being disqualified. I also think the digital scale is a good idea, and wouldn't be opposed to having the blogging rule enforced. I think last time around some people only posted twice the entire 5 months. I guess it just shows you are serious about getting and receiving support if you are willing to blog and comment :)

I'm in...

hey, I plan to add everyone to my blog list later this week so I can get to know you all - I'm very busy with school the next few days. I tried to add Karilynn this morning but I am denied access. I'm kinda old and not as computer literate as some of you so if any of you would like to help me fix this I would appreciate your help.
Thanks
Ellura

Oh GREAT! I gave my starting weigh in picture...but never noticed 'older posts' link...having clicked that, I noticed that I needed to put a PEN in the picture with the starting weight. SO, what happens now? Can this be forgiven? Would you like another starting weight picture WITH the pen? Gah...this is kind of frustrating. PayPal won't let me pay, they won't recognize the email address and I screwed up the weigh in pic. Sheesh! I really want to be a part of this competition...so could someone send me a message telling me what's what. Thanks
