Hello Everyone! We are Ellen & Emily, and we have a NEW challenge for you!
I feel so famous for being able to post on here. Elbow Elbow Wrist
Wrist Touch Your Pearls and Blow a Kiss. I don’t actual own any pearls
nor have we ever been a beauty pageant queen (or contestant) but thanks
to everyone on MLFC I am well on my way to being "Miss I actually weigh
what my driver’s license says I weigh". I joined MLFC at the beginning
of October and was lucky enough to get in on the Holiday Challenge that
started October 17th and will end on Dec 5th. The challenge has helped
me stay accountable for my actions, push through the rough patches, and
really start to drop the pounds. I was really nervous that once this
challenge was over that I would go back to old habits (they die hard)
and just put the weight back on so I wanted to create another challenge
to allow me to stay accountable and also do what I do best: compete with
other people for a prize (yes I said a prize).
Emily: Ellen is
actually my team leader for the previous challenge, and when I saw her
idea I immediately wanted to be a part. I am VERY competitive and
whenever a competition is involved, I'm "all in!"
I started this weight loss journey just a few months ago, and have lost over 20 lbs. I created a blog called, My Uncharted Territory, in the process to help me stay accountable and to record my progress. Being involved
with you ladies has impacted my weight loss more then anything I've tied
before. I can't explain to anyone how this community is something that
has changed my life. These challenges are just another way to bring us
all together for a common goal, to better ourselves.
But enough about us- time to discuss the challenge!
are calling this challenge, "The Last Loser Standing." This is a
straightforward challenge, being that all you have to do is lose weight
(doesn’t matter how much) or maintain your current weight (not an ounce
over) to stay in the competition. No percentages, no teams, nothing
We have created a new Facebook group (we know, not
ANOTHER Facebook group) for you to join to stay updated on the group's
progress and how many are still competing. To enter the challenge all
you have to do is join the group.
We are only going to allow 500 people to do this challenge because
otherwise it might never end. The challenge will start on Wednesday
December 12th, and will continue until there is just one person
remaining. On each Tuesday morning we will post on the Facebook page a
“weigh in word” for the week. You must write this word on a piece of
paper and place it on or near your scale. When you weigh yourself for
the week you must take a picture of your feet and word on the scale and
send this picture to email@example.com. All pictures MUST be sent
in no later than Wednesday at 11:59pm CST. If you do not get your
picture in on time you will be eliminated from the competition. When you
send the picture please put your full name (first AND last) and current
weight in the subject line before you send the picture. On Thursday we
will go through all the e-mails and update a spreadsheet for everyone to
Now back to the prize. While we think being able to say you
won the last loser standing out of 499 other people is prize enough, we
are both prize oriented
losers, so we wanted to be able to give the lucky loser something
tangible. Ellen was lucky enough to get her hands on a Fitbit Ultra for the lucky lady (or gent?) who can be claimed the last loser standing.
We look forward to seeing you all in the facebook group! So good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
