The Idea

My idea to start this Community came up when my 2 closest ED-buddies & me noticed we all had the same goal - to lose 30 pounds! I developed the point-system & created this Community to make it easier to keep track of our points & developments.

The Challenge

We don`t have a time limit. The challenge is over when the first girl has reached the goal of having lost 30 pounds!

We`ll have two winners:
1. The girl who loses the 30 pounds first
2. The girl with the most points

I have the feeling the winner will not necessarily have the most points

I`ll make .jpg Winner-Certificates so you can proudly show-off your success!

I`ll also make a Top-5-Points and Weight Statistic & Graphics (I`ve learned how to do it right & highly-scientifically during 3 Semesters in University). I hope this encourages you to keep posting your points daily!

The Rules

-BE DETERMINED!!! This means: post your points EVERY DAY before you go to bed! (If you can`t take the challenge anymore LEAVE!)
-be honest - we are there for support & won`t rip your head off if you`ve had a bad day - remember: we`re here to support each other!
-be nice to each other!
-we`ll do this in KILOS!!! (Remember 1 kilo = 2,2 pounds) - seeing a smaller number is much more encouraging!!! (We could also call it the "Loose 14 kilos challenge" - we`re playing with numbers :)
-Every member must fill out the questionare after joining!
-Post in "Friends only" Mode!

How to do it

I`m an order-fetishist and our Community will be neat & user-friendly so we`ll hardcore use the MEMORIES-section!

There will be ONE SINGLE threat for these items:

-Thinspiration (pics of Models, your successes etc.)
-Tools (Calorie-Lists, Recipes, Tips)
-FAQ (where all questions & answers concerning the challenge get in)

And the most important:

POST YOUR POINTS DAILY!!! EACH DAY WE`LL ONLY HAVE O-N-E THREAT WHERE ALL OUR POINTS GET INTO! Subject of this Posting is "Points of "date/month/year". Post your points for the day + your total sum of points. (I don`t care who initiates this posting - if you`re ready to post your points of the day and nobody opened a threat DO IT YOURSELF! Please understand that I can`t initiate that myself every day.)

Every Wednesday is weighing day! Like the points posting we`ll only have ONE WEIGHT THREAT where our progress gets in! It will be called "Weight-Progress of week (1,2,3...)" and feature your current weight + how many pounds you lost.

Notice: There is no force - YOU DO THIS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! It`s no drama if you forget to post your points for a day - it will just make your "statistic" look bad...if you don`t want to tell us your weight we won`t force you. Just tell us how much you lose.

Ok, this was a lot. Don`t worry, the idea is simple and I guess you`ll understand how it works by simply looking into the Community after joining.

I wish you strenght, discipline & determination!
