    Info:

    - Start Date: Opening weigh-ins will be due Monday, January 4th through Sunday, January 10th (late sign-ups are still welcome)
    - End Date: Final weigh-ins will be due the week of Monday, April 26th through Friday, April 30th
    - Contest is 16 weeks long to encourage healthy habits and weight loss
    - $25 entry fee, will message Venmo information after you sign up *please make sure to send all venmo payments privately*
    - Results are determined by body weight % dropped (initial weigh-in minus final weigh-in divided by initial weigh-in)
    - Weekly results will be posted every Monday morning

    Rules:

    -For the initial weigh-in, post a picture of your scale with username and date somewhere in the pic.
    -Take a before pic with username and date (will only need to post if you place). The pic helps verify the weight loss and will help give you an idea of how much weight you've lost.
    -You must weigh-in each week (no photo required).
    -If you miss three weigh-ins in a row, you will be disqualified.
    -Final weigh-in should include scale with username and date.
    -If you win, you should post an after pic with username and date alongside your before pic.
    - *NEW THIS YEAR* After the first week of weigh-ins following the initial weigh-in, if you post multiple weeks with double digit losses or post a loss greater than 10 lbs in the final week you will be disqualified. This is set up to encourage people to find healthy, long-term ways to improve their wellness and discourage extreme measures like fasting and dehydration.

    Winners:

    1st place: ~70% of total pot
    2nd place: ~20% of total pot
    3rd place: ~5% of total pot
    Little Guy: ~5% of total pot

    -Little Guy (assuming more than one small guy signs up): for start weights 215 and under
    -Little Guy cannot both place and win Little Guy. If Little Guy gets 1st or 2nd, then the Little Guy award will go to the second place Little Guy. If the Little Guy gets 3rd, Little Guy will take the Little Guy award and the fourth place person will get the third place award.
    -If not enough folks sign up so that 3rd place and Little Guy win something, percentages/amounts will be shifted. This will occur at the beginning of the competition, and I will both edit this post and post a comment so everyone is aware.

    All health-related discussion is welcome, including from folks who aren’t participating in the competition. Our goal is to create a healthier TMB.

    Just my opinion, but fasting isn't a bad thing. I don't plan on losing 10lbs in a week, but if it happens I dunno how someone should be penalized for being commited to their plan.

    Wish this started a couple months ago. I had put on +15 lbs during covid and have been eating super clean and significantly less bc health issues in last 2-3 months. (Stomach/GI issues)

    I went from 203 lbs @ 6'1" to 176 since October. That was heaviest I've ever been by far. This is the lightest I've been in over 12 years. I want to lose another 5-6 lbs and replace it with muscle when feel well enough to lift again.

    Would 27 lbs in under 12 weeks have won anything for my size?

    There were some people who were consistently ahead throughout the competition who got screwed out of winning first and second place because someone went on a crash fast the final week and then cut weight by dehydrating themselves and posted some absurd 20ish pound loss in a week.

    That’s not what this is supposed to be about.

    Besides, most resources say shooting for 2 lbs a week weight loss on average is at the high end of what's healthy, allowing people to go up to 10 lbs in a week allows for some variance in doing this in a healthy way while discouraging fuckery that makes everyone angry.

    :laugh: Guy lost 22 pounds in 11 days. I've done my fair share of cutting weight for wrestling, but this is a bit much.

    How you doing now Kenman51?

    I'm in for this I was around 205 when my baby was born in July. Did pretty well until the last 2 months when I was working 60hr weeks, and just started drinking and eating a fuck load. We'll see where I am coming Sunday :ohdear: Hopefully no higher than 240

    It happens. September of 2019 one of these ended and I hit 167 down from my highest weight. I'm up 47 since then.

    Time to get back to work. My goal for this comp is to get back to my lowest.

    It’s pretty common for me to drop 10-12 pounds in my first week. A testament to how much trash my body holds on to.

    Yep. That's why in the rules a double digit loss in the first week won't eliminate someone. I feel like that's pretty common.

    That just sounds fucking miserable. Even pros weight cutters like college wrestlers or pro fighters would have a rough time.

    I've been averaging 2 lbs a week maybe

    Yea first week, you’re probably losing mostly water weight and a bunch of shit inside you that gets flushed out

    I’m doing dry January and starting this week. Probably lose 5-7 pounds before my initial weigh in...which is perfectly fine with me

    Yeah, I've "lost" 12-15 in a week, but that's usually coming off a binge post match bloat that's usually half of it.

    Cutting 6# of water weight alone is brutal, I can't imagine doing 22 from an already dieting state

    Yeah, it melts off the first couple of weeks plus water weight. That late in the game is just starving and completely depleting yourself.

    Staying out..I've already lost 13% of my body weight. I would have to starve myself and do a nasty water weight cut to make a run. Not worth it and not the point of the competition. I only want to lose another 6-7 lbs now

    After this week I will be at four weeks of being back on the grind and on plan on my eating with WW (with a two day binge break for Christmas), running in the mornings using the C25K trainer, and then doing Crossfit in the afternoons with a little bit of extra cardio and core work before and after each session.

    So far I've only lost like 5 lbs doing that which is really frustrating considering how fucking sore I've been all month, but I'm sure once the number on the scale starts moving it's going to be MOVING. Hopefully that plateau breaks the day after this competition starts.
