Team Challenge + Hooker Heels // Jen S.


You asked for it, so you got it.  Hope you’re ready!

The Jens are at it again and hosting another freaking super sweet challenge.  There were TONS who did the last challenge and since there are literally THOUSANDS more of you (that is still a bit unbelievable) who joined the group since we started the last challenge, we thought “Let’s do another challenge! YAY!” 

It will be run a little bit differently, and yes, we’re still gonna be strict…but you’ll have to be strict with each other.

This challenge will involve losing percentages, teams, captains, and, drum roll…PRIZES!  I just love prizes!  And we know how much you love your free shit, so we figured it was a win-win!

How it works:
  • Submit your weight, name, and if you’re willing to be a captain here: (Update: Challenge is Full) – you MUST submit through this form in order to participate
  • I will divide you up into teams of 5
  • Each week (once we start) you’ll report your weight to your team captain
  • Your team captain will tally up the weight and submit to me each week
  • At the end of the challenge, the team that lost the most percentage will win!
  • This is a Holiday Challenge, so your team will need to come up with a fun Holiday Team Name, like: Sweet Potatoes Chuckers or Santa Blasters...be creative, be silly, it's more fun that way. 
  • In keeping with the last challenge, we will continue the Wednesday Weigh In 


What’s a Captain?
A captain will be the person on each team collecting, keeping track of, and reporting weights for each person.  It is the responsibility of the captain to keep a log of each individual’s weight and report the TOTAL group weight to me once a week.  Jen S will email the captains the link to the spreadsheet each week, you will be responsible for adding ONLY the TOTAL weight of your team each week.  Jen S will track the percentages.  In a separate document, you’ll want to track the individual weight of your team members.

To keep our sanity, we need to limit this to 500 people (or less if we don’t have enough captains)…100 teams of 5.  We ask that you SERIOUSLY think about this challenge.  The Jens thought long and hard about this and want this to be a successful endeavor, so we ask that you only participate in this challenge if: you are 100% committed to doing this challenge for the entire duration (don’t think we didn't notice all those empty rectangles in the first challenge).  If you drop out it will hurt your team and we are just trying to keep it fair for all!

This challenge will run from October 17 through December 5. 

Get crackin’ on that form.  I’m taking the first 500, so…

And PS for all those out there who like my hooker-heels (that’s what I call anything over 4 inches…these are 5 inches) that I posted on instagram (jen_stamps) I got them at Target. :)  


xoxo
Jen S.

  17. I'm signed up and am super excited! A few questions:
    in the rules will there be something about loosing the weight the healthy way (no fad diets or pills)?
    will we be able to choose a name with our team before the challenage starts?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Signed up :) Just a question though : the weight loss you ask about on the form means your total goal or just during the challenge? I did in total, hope I didn't mess it up.

  31. I think I got in on time yesterday....I hope!

  32. Okay so I hope you get this Jen S. I have done a challenge like this before and it worked really well. I would suggest though that you have a weigh in word each week. You do this to keep people honest because I can say I lost 2 pounds this week but I really gained 7. So what you do is have everyone take a picture of the scale with the weigh in word for the week written on a piece of paper and have the picture sent to the team leader. That way people are being honest with the challenge and it helps keep you more accountable. If you know you HAVE to send in the picture with the word then you are more likely to make better choices through out the week to keep your weight going down.
