Hey Everybody. Welcome to Week 0 of our Challenge: Loseit Enters the Roaring 20’s. This week will focus on setting your goal for the challenge and beginning our activity tracking.
Loseit Challenges are a team-based competition that last for 8 weeks during which you set a weight-loss goal and then weigh in weekly, working to be at or beyond that goal by the end of the challenge. There will be a new post every Friday with Links/Instructions for each week’s activities. The challenge subreddit and your team’s discord channel will also have all the information you need.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP, GO TO STEP 4
NEW SIGNUPS COMPLETE ALL STEPS
Step 1: Sign up for the Challenge
Step 2 – Visit the Challenge Tracker to find your team!
NOTE: Newest signups are at the bottom of the list. The team assigner runs every 5 minutes. If your team is blank, just wait a moment. It will refresh in real time on desktop, but you may have to refresh the spreadsheet on mobile to see the changes.
Note 2: Do not request edit access to the tracker. Please contact one of your captains with any errors that need to be corrected
Step 3 – Join our new subreddit to find your team’s discord
Please join our new subreddit r/LoseitChallenges to find your team’s discord.
Step 4 – Weigh in and set your goal for the challenge
This is where you will choose your challenge goal weight as well. If you sign up today, you also need to weigh-in for week 0 sometime before January 16th.
Please try to choose a reasonable goal! The goal of these challenges is to set up sustainable weight loss habits. If you gain one or two weeks, keep pushing and do not give up! There are no penalties for struggling, only for giving up.
Step 5 – Submit Steps and Activity Minutes
This week is a BATTLE ROYALE! Every team vs Every Team. Next week will begin our head to head challenges.
note: We define activity minutes as “intentional additional activity to meet your health goals”. This may include things like weight lifting, running, yoga, walking to work instead of driving, etc. Things that are not already a part of your normal day.
NOTE: Each week begins on a Friday, so you will have until the following Friday at 9am EST (when the next week is posted) to complete your weigh-in. You can weigh in multiple times during the week but only your most recent entry will be recorded on the tracker.
