I started my weightloss 4 years ago. I stayed on the wagon for 2 years, never reached my goal weight, and then I fell, hard. I'm finally trying to seriously get back on the damn wagon and regain my footing, in weight loss and life in general.

So I just weighed in and it asked me if I wanted to reuse a weigh in from a transformer. I selected yes. Does it automatically approve or do I have to wait for it to be reapproved again?

I did the same thing, and it was reapprived quickly

I weighed in for a transformer yesterday, and I thought I’d be able to reuse that weigh in this morning but it isn’t giving me the option. Am I missing something?

Have you actually clicked "submit weight"? Once you do it will ask you if you want to reuse a weigh-in

That darn portion control, if you don't want too much by default life is a lot easier ;)

The game has begun! Lose 4% by your final weigh-in, and you'll be a winner.

Remember that you can weigh in unofficially as often as you like before then - it'll help you stay accountable. (And don't be distracted if anyone appears to have super fast weight loss. There's no bonus points for losing weight the fastest, and only official, Referee-approved weigh-ins determine who wins.)

Good luck and have fun!

First day workout was great! Why, oh why do triceps push-ups kill me so badly!

Dear Triceps Pushups:

I am 3 rounds in to LIIFT 4 and you still kill me EVERY TIME...will you ever get easier?

Humbly,

First dietbet. Says to submit weigh in Saturday midnight. Does it need to be at the time or anytime after as long as it’s by day 1? I’m going out of town wondering if I need to pack the scale. Thanks!

It’s usually 48 hours before and 2 weeks after

McSchwabbo

The weighing in 48h before the game starts is a concession that allows you to stretch those 28 days a little. You can also weigh in up to 2 weeks into the game, but this you'll only have 2 weeks left to lose the same 4% as everybody else. 1 day into the game (28 day count starts Monday) is absolutely fine and shouldn't make things more difficult with the 4 percent

I have never struggled so much with a transformer ever (this is my sixth)! I'm in two others at the moment, but I started this one after I had already lost a good amount of weight, so it's difficult. I usually hit my 10% in month 3, but I'm struggling just to make the weigh-ins for this one.

I hit my round 3 goal this morning, BUT that was without clothes on. Hoping to lose one pound or so before the official weigh in so I can make it!

At the moment, I’m 1.8 below my goal, should be a little bit more in the morning! I’ve been super strict these last couple of days.

Also, I’d never do an official weigh in (the close up) nude, even if my scale wasn’t reflective. I’d just feel weird about it, and I like the full body pic to show the same number as the closeup.

Dish

I'm in a similar boat. This is my first transformer where I haven't got the 10% after 3 months. Lbs are not dropping off as easy this year.

Just, like, a quick question; I see a lot of people trying to drink a gallon of water a day...what is that in litres?

Too much for me :D
I think the 2-3 litres recommend in Germany do me quite nicely.

I learned this in middle school chemistry: a liter is a “liter” (little) more than a quart.
It’s silly, but it has stuck with me all these years! :smile:

  • Sometimes progress comes in different ways. My flexibility is improving. The photo on the left was my first time trying the 'scorpio' move. The photo on the right was a few weeks later. I still have further to go, but i'm happy with how far I've come since joining this sport in January

I have always wanted to try this but wondered if my thighs might be too flabby and make it really uncomfortable. I mean, apart from the fact that I don't have any core strength and would be starting from zero, which would be the really hard part :D

Danni

When i first started in january i couldnt even do a basic spin on the pole let alone hold my bidy weight upside down. It hurts, you get covered in bruises but its honestly so much fun! Theres women of all different shapes and sizes. If you want to try it, give it a go, you honestly wont regret it!

How's everyone doing so far?

funnily enough, i store up water prior to my period (swollen water boobs, ugh), but once it starts, everything is released. So, because my weigh-in coincided with me loaded with water before my period, I'm doing really well, but mostly from a "likelihood of winning" standpoint - because the weight I lost was water, not the real weight I actually want to lose. But I started another game a week later, with a "real" starting weight, so that will definitely push me, because that "real" weight has to go in order to win that bet!

Jayme

Right. I always bloat with mine!

Just weighed in at 81,1, and the previous week I weighed in for a different game at 84 - that's 2,9 kg / 6.4 lbs less because starting my period yesterday really opened the flood gates, not because of a huge caloric deficit 🙈 bodys are nuts.
