The Next BLBE

I have been getting many emails from all of you lovely motivated losers asking about the next BLBE. At this time, I'm not able to give you a date for another challenge. This was a long challenge and it was very hard to keep up with, so if and when there is another one, it won't be until after a much needed break and it will be much shorter in duration.

It is difficult to keep up with running the challenge on top of my own blog, a full time job and my own focus on my continued journey to my goals. So with that said, I would just like to tell you all that while I have no plans for another BLBE in the near future, I will make an annoucement for a roll call for challengers if and when there is another one.

Thank you all for your support and participation! So many of you made such amazing progress and it was SUCH an honour to watch you make those acheivements in your weight loss and health!

Team Lean - Week 15 Results

Well, we're certainly down to the nitty gritty! Only one more week to go until the final WI! Our team has diminished quite a bit, which makes our stats lower but the people that have stayed in this challenge have so much to be proud of, there are many of you with very high percentage of overall weight loss!! So just keep up the great work in this last week and know that you've changed your life for the better!

So, sadly as a team this week we've gained 1lb. As in more people gained than lost. Over all we've still lost 615lbs, which is 3.59% of our total body weight.

Our Biggest Loser of the Week is Jennifer S - Just Jen, who lost 2.6lbs, which is 1.75%.

In second place we have Andrea - A Cake For A Wife, who lost 3.6 lbs, which is 1.60%.

And in third, we have Hotch P - The Hotch Potchery, who lost 2.4 lbs, which is 0.99%.

A-Team's Roundin' the Finish! Week 15!

We are roundin' the finish you guys and there is now just ONE week left in our challenge! Just one more week!!! After this last week we'll announce our winner and we've got all sorts of fun things lined up! I'm so excited! WOOOT!

But we will save that for next week! This week we had some pretty impressive results! The A-Team's first place loser this week was Bre who lost 2.72% of her total body percentage!! WOOOT!

Our second place loser this week was only behind Bre by a teeny tiny bit. Marisa lost a whoppin' 2.71%!

And our third place loser this week lost 1.83% of her body percentage! Way to go Lisa!!!

Having lost quite a few challengers, our team's stats as a whole has changed a bit. Our team has lost 454.7 lbs! If you all pledge your pounds lost in the Pounds for Pounds Challenge after next week (don't worry, I'll remind you again!), that's literally 455 lbs of food that will be delivered to help feed the hungry in America! So one more week everyone!

I hope you all give it your all this week and sprint to the finish! And for those of you who missed your WI this week please weigh in next week and finish it up! BRING IT HOME A-TEAM!!!!!

Team Lean is Shrinking

In both a good way and a bad way.

The good is that this week as a team we lost 24.4 lbs, which is 0.14% of our body weight. Since the challenge started, we've lost 614.6 lbs!! (Yah we broke the 600 lbs lost like I had hoped!) for a total 3.59% of our body weight.

The bad is that I only got results for 16 of us, two of those being me and my hubby. I'm really disapointed that we've gone from around 80 participants to 16. :( I waited to post our results today in hopes that I would get a bunch of late emails but no such luck.

However, those of you who are sticking around are on the right path! You've committed yourself to losing weight and getting healthy and that simply rocks!! You'll have no problem getting to your goals if you stay with it. We have two weeks left, just two weeks so I encourage you to give it ALL that you've got! :)

Our Biggest Loser of the Week is Tammy H - Mommy's Tired, who was down 6 lbs this week for a total of 2.28% body weight.

In second place we had Andrea M - My Live It, who was down 4 lbs for a total of 1.67% body weight.

And in third we had Caylyn K - Caylyn's Page, was was down 2.9 lbs for a total of 1.44% body weight.

All other results below:

A-Team Week 14 - The "Eye on the Prize Edition"

That's right everyone, there's only two weeks left to the finish line of our BLBE2 challenge!! I can't believe that the finish line is right around the corner! This is where we all need to sprint to the finish, give it all you got and just keep your eye on the prize!!!! Two more weeks is all we're asking of ourselves and each other and two weeks is not that long at all!

Topping off the A-Team this week was Cadee who lost 2.31% of her body weight this week! HOLY! Great job!!

Diane earned a solid second having lost 1.60% of herself this week; and

Shari, not surprising in all her kick assness is sporting a respectable third place having lost 1.49% of herself this week too!

Way to go ladies, you deserve a major pat on the back from the A-Team and keep your eye on the prize!!!

A-Team Week 13 - The "50% Edition"

Well my little Asskickers, here we are about 50% of us still standing at Week 13! It may only be 50% of our original team, but there you are, the survivial of the fittest in a very literal form! I am so proud of you all for sticking it out this far. It means a lot to me to see you succeed in acheiving your goals!

So let's get on with the show, shall we?
Edit: I totally messed up and Brooke was our top loser of the week having lost a whoppin' 2.17% of herself last week! She just skimmed above Suzi, but was our leader nonetheless! She is doing so incredibly well, and she certainly deserved the shout out! Way to go Brooke!!

Our top loser of the week this was Suzi who has lost 2.16% of her tiny little self and is so incredibly close to acheiving her weight loss goal! Goooo Suzi!!!

Our second place loser of the week was Ashleigh who has been kicking ass since the beginning of this challenge and this week alone has lost 1.6% of herself! Woooot!

And our third (and certainly not least by a long shot) place loser this week is Sandy who lost 1.57% of herself this week! You go girl!

So proud of you all so much!

As a team and due to some elimination of some consistent no-show WI's our team's total lost poundage has decreased somewhat because we had to get rid of the results that were no longer an accurate contribution to our team. But even still, in our team of 44, we have lost 457 lbs!!! That's incredible you guys! That's a total team percentage lost of 5.21%

Again, I am so proud of you all for your perserverance, your stamina and commitment to your goals. You're all amazing!
