I think a before photo helps. If you add a before pic taken from the front and a side view then have the winners do the after pic of the same. You won't be able to have an extra 20+ lbs on scale and photo to match.

How much of the entry fees will go to pay for the website that’s doing the competition? If it’s a free website that’s fine, but I think any charges held out of entries need to be told up front. Will it be a “percentage lost” category only? To me that’s the best to do.

The forum is free. There are no associated fees.

See above for probable payout.

100 percent of the fees for joining the competition will go to payout. There are no forum costs or any admin charges.

Yep. I'm in Oklahoma probably through tomorrow, but I'll be able to respond better to emails Saturday when I get back home. I'm keeping a spreadsheet and need to enter everyone before I lose track.

Default Weight loss competition for 2018?

Also I like the before photo idea. If some skinny guy pushing his gut out puts in a heavy weight we should publicly shame them on the TBH and keep their entry fee!!

Right now we have 12 entrants, for $240. But, I have not received any of the mailed checks yet, so I suspect that number will at least double in the next couple of weeks before the Jannuary 15 deadline.

The only way we can use Tapatalk is if I register the forum as viewable by anyone/everyone. Closed forums are not allowed. I would LOVE to be able to use Tapatalk, but I really don't want to make our pictures and posts viewable to just anyone that happens upon the forum.

Now up to 18 people, with three more in the works and still waiting on checks that were promised. So, let's say 21 probably plus probably another 10 or so in a week or so. That would put us at around 30 people with a payout of $600, give or take. Again, that's an estimate based on what I've been told by folks who said they sent checks.

Send an e-mail to me at the e-mail address: thbloser2018@gmail.com and I will send you information about paying and we'll go from there. Registration closes on the 15th, so make sure if you are interested, that I receive an e-mail before that date.

As of today, we have 25 participants. That number may go up a bit before the 15th. I am receiving a few checks here and there. Registration closes on the 15th, so we should have a final count around that time, but as of right now the pot is $500. I also hope to secure a few donations along the way.
