Right now 5 of our participants have yet to submit an initial weight. 2 of those 5 actually haven't been on the board since the contest started, so they haven't received my PMs. The other 3 have but haven't weighed in. I'm going to give everyone until the end of the week to either contact me, but if I haven't heard from everyone by then, how does everyone feel about miko33 subbing in for one of the no-shows?

Of the 5 that haven't showed, 2 are from Division 1 and 3 are from Division 2, so I think he'd end up in division 2, but I would choose who he replaced randomly if necessary.

Also, I'm considering changing a rule for the "Forfeit Wins", since we may have some people who completely no show for the entire contest, the people that are going against them would know this ahead of time (except for this week). So people could treat that as a bye week (but also keep in mind cumulative weight loss will factor in for the playoffs).

But, what if we said that you could get a regular win if you lost a higher % than the average of the competitors in actual games that week? Does that sound fair to everyone? This would also make it more likely that people will try during those weeks they are playing no-shows.

I'll let everyone weigh-in (pun intended) below.

Just wanted to make sure you received my initial weight PM. And your idea sounds good to me.

If you weigh in soon, I'd be willing to give you the same treatment I'm giving miko33, where you may replace one of our no-shows.

I'll send you a PM.

As far as opponent? The schedule is listed in the third post.

But you won't know how your opponent has done until the weigh-in next Tuesday.

bah! spent the whole extended weekend sick with the whole family. Still tried to be good, but no gym time and still had come comfort meals to feel better. GTS, you may still have a shot even traveling this whole time.

I checked sat to see how I was doing. I lost a whole person. By person I mean the batteries were going out and when replaced I was disappointed. I hadn't lost what my 4 month old weighs haha

I don't want to jinx myself but I'm felling pretty confident about my loss. I'd already given up soda and I've cut back on a lot of excess sugar here and there that I didn't even realize I was consuming. Plus I cut back on what my wife calls "gas station food". Which is what it is at Speedway but those breakfast sandwiches are awesome especially the jalapeño sausage on the pancake. Killer. Throw in good ole Blizzard Jonas or whatever the hell they call it and it's been great for my snow plow business as well as constant exercise from shoveling and plowing and snow blowing. I sneaked and weighed myself today and was very surprised at what I saw! Big day tomo.

10 people in out of 28 already this morning! I'll post whatever completed matchups we have when I get home from work tonight, then make one final update on Wednesday to get the stragglers in.
