Rurik Harrgath Posted January 10 Report Share Posted January 10 Welcome one and all, New Years resolutioners and enthusiastic old-hands alike! I'm back to (mostly) regular posting, so without further delay, here's the newest reiteration of... The 10/12lbs in 10/12 weeks weight-loss Player-versus-Player challenge! In discussion during previous PVPs, we came to the conclusion that folks should have the guilt-free option of taking it easy during Week Zeros to refeed, rest and recharge if they so wish, hence the 12/10lbs in 12/10 weeks in the title. I want you to set goals that you think are realistic (that could even be 6lbs/12weeks or whatever works for you) and stick around for the accountability and camaraderie rather than opting out, beating yourself up, or quitting partway through! So now's the time to sign-up for a Player-versus-Player accountability challenge sure to motivate you to tackle those weight loss goals! Of course we only advocate losing healthy weight and using healthy methods to get there, this playful side quest is less about beating your peers to the finish line than it is about challenging yourself, making some new accountibilibuddies, and having a place to share your battle plan or struggles along the way. Friends don't let friends hoover donuts this close to the beginning of the New Year! The Rules Sign-up using the SPREADSHEET. Add your name & starting weight, waist measurements optional. 10 or 12 lbs in 10 or 12 weeks (roughly 1lb or 0.5kg per week) is the goal but feel free to increase or decrease the difficulty as you see fit. Whatever your goals are, you are most welcome to participate (even if you'd like to join in late)! Introduce yourself to your fellow competitors! Feel free to mention your goals, any battle plans for getting there, and what your primary motivation or inspirations are. Feel free to mention your Challenge goals or BattleLog too! This is an excellent place to get to know others from the forums. Update the SPREADSHEET with your weekly weigh-ins. We're using Monday as the 'official' day, but if Sunday, Tuesday, or any other day work better, go nuts! Just keep it at roughly a week for tracking purposes. This challenge is aligned with the current and next 5 Week Challenges, with optional weeks off for Zero Week at the start and in between. You're also welcome to hop in at any time! Have fun, encourage everyone, and keep each other accountable! Get hype but stay safe! Also, anything done confidently cannot be considered failure! Double also, did I mention the SPREADSHEET? Tips for Success! Make with the exercise (maybe the cardio zoomies, maybe the heavy uppy-downies or the flippy-dippies?) Do-do the (calorie) deficit. Gobble up the veggies. Gulp down the waters. Visit and update us (and the SPREADSHEET) regularly to build that accountability network. Share your workout playlist for MAXIMUM HYPE!! 5 Quote [Level ??] Rurik, Templar-Marshal Class: Paladin of the Order of the Sacred Flame (Conquest Paladin/Champion) BRUTALITY 11 | FINESSE 10 | VIGOR 11 | INSIGHT 14 | WILL 13 Equipment: Leather armor, questing longsword, and adventurer's pack with alchemist's kit.
