#SMCHALLENGE Updates



I made a video to save some time on explaining the challenge. Again I'm sorry for all the 'umms' and I'm sorry I can't help every one of you. I really want to, swear! 

Now - the group I created yesterday is now called Fit Family - it is now going to be used for connecting with others and asking questions. I will be monitoring it and I will be active in helping with questions and so forth as much as time allows. There will be no fighting and no drama, if you are unhappy about something email me. The group is secret so feel free to be open and honest with your fellow fit family - this is about women supporting women.

The 12 Week Challenge is only going to be open to the first 1500 ladies for right now. It's on a first come first served basis - sorry! You can request to join here #SMCHALLENGE
  • Weigh in photos are due Monday by 10am! I will divide everyone into 3 groups based on last names and you will post the photo in the designated album.You can wear whatever you want.
  • You do NOT have to have Instagram or a blog to participate - just a Facebook account. 
  • There will be a lot of challenges during this time - hopefully at least one a week. Do as many as you would like or just do one. Your choice! 
  • I would really like EVERYONE to track their food - if you don't want to use MFP you don't have to, but to win the 'Food Tracking' contest I must be able to login and verify your journal somehow. 
  • We will be using the Honor System - if you are a liar who lies please don't join. Adults only. 
  • You do not have to be following the IIFYM, but I do so I probably will be talking about it a lot. You do what works for you.
I really as so sorry for all the confusion - I'm just trying to figure out how to best go about all of this and I appreciate y'all stickin' with me during this learning curve. 



I can't tell you how many times I've actually had to apologize for this! Top from Pretty and Chic.

  2. Can pregnant mama's do the challenge? I would love the accountability and the knowledge of the IIFYM and starting using it now to prep for post-baby weight loss!

  3. Since the "winner" is now based on weight loss, should we include a date card and code in our picture, like we do with diet bets? I know you e asked everyone to be honest and not lie, but there's always one...

  5. I've said it before, and I'll say it again---you are freaking adorable--both inside and out :)

    I think what you are doing is amazing--makes me wish I still had a FB account to be able to join in. Your gift of inspiring others is amazing!

  7. This is so great! I am pumped. I have loved your blog for a long time and always been a silent reader! Thanks for setting this up, you must be super overwhelmed by the response. Just know we all appreciate it!

  8. I joined the group and I'm very excited but unfortunately my workouts are going to be very limited =/ I have been recovering from a disc hernia in my lower back and can only do workouts in the pool or cardio on the stationary bike with the back support. I reallyyyy need the accountability and would love to participate in the challenge. Do you think this will be a problem?

  10. Like so many who have posted before me, I'm very much a silent reader. I draw so much knowledge and inspiration from your blog.
    I've been willy nilly about joining the group thanks do the typical negative thoughts like "But I don't know anyone" "what if they don't like me?" but I think it's time to put that crap to rest! I can't wait to participate with such an amazing group of women!

    1. Oh girl, most of us don't know anyone in the group - I don't know anyone either, so now we know each other ;)

  11. HAHA 10 readers..... I also say ummm A LOT.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yay! I requested to join! I am very excited for this challenge- thanks for doing this! :)

  13. I'm in maintance mode, so weight loss is not my main focus. Can you put on your FB fan page or even on here when you do the push up challenge and any other fitness challenges? I really like incorporating those into my daily workouts.

  14. Thanks Megan! Super excited to be part of the challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yay! So excited to start this - just posted my "before" photos!! And I can't believe you haven't gone crazy already - this group has exploded with so many people and posts. It's going to be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Is it closed? I couldn't make the link work... =D

  17. Meg, thank you so much for setting this up. I signed up but am still a little wary off giving FB photos like this, since they'll then own them forever, but I think I will just have to. (If not, of course I expect to be deleted.) Congratulations to you, too, on such a great turnout. Just shows how much you are adored and you inspire people.

    I just wanted to say that you doing this challenge, on top of everything else you do (which is a TON and constantly leaves me amazed), shows you are just such a ball of energy. You are really inspiring!

  18. It might be fun to have a winner then 2nd third and fourth places. Also maybe a biggest transformation win. We could all put in 10 dollars or so to paypal. Just thoughts. Thx for doing this!

  19. eeeeeeeeeeek I am so excited. For reals ya'll we are going to kick some booty! #smchallenge #bringitawwwnnn

  20. I'm training for a marathon and weight loss is not my focus at the moment. But I would love if you would still post the challenges outside of the Facebook site so that others could participate as well without being part of the prizes. I think it's a great idea, just wrong timing for me. Thanks for doing this!

  21. You could do percentage of weight lost. Since some girls have less to loose than others. I need to loose a lot! They have weight loss percentage calculators online

  24. i just joined!! i'm 33 days from my due date, so i'll be just rooting for everyone these first few weeks. but after baby comes, i'll def need the support!! looking forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. now that i think about it... is it ok that i joined?? i mean, i'm not trying to compete with anyone on weight loss, but i don't want to be unfair either. I'm just more looking for a fun support group.

    obviously, my starting pics will be a lot different than my ending pics ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah yeah. Hopefully I make the cut. Should we maybe do inches lost? Since I've been lifting heavy I've list tons of inches but no weight:(

  27. Hi, I'm getting "content unavailable" when I click in fit family. What am I doing wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I really really want to join but I am in Disney on vacation so Wednesday would be the earliest I could post photos and weight.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm part of the fb group, so that means I'm part of the challenge right? Because I really want to do it

    ReplyDelete
  30. I cannot get the link to work. Am I too late?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I can't get the link to work either...I'd LOVE to do this. Heck, I need this!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Is the group full because the link no longer works? I would love to join!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm so bummed I missed out on getting in the real challenge group. I joined the first group and thought I was set. I was giving it time to settle down a bit and now realized it's not the real group. *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  34. Would you be willing to post your challenges on your blog as well? That way the 1500+ group could follow along as well? I was a day late and too late to get in. :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. I was too late to get in so I will keep my eyes open for the next one. GOOD LUCK and GREAT IDEA!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was camping all weekend, is there still time to get in the group? the link does not work - eek!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Could you post some of your challenges on your blog as well for us non-FB users? I would love some workout motivation! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm still not able to click through to the Fit Family link. I tried the day you posted it originally, and came back to see if maybe it just wasn't quite ready. Still getting a "content not available" message.

    I'd love to connect once it's available - could you give us an update?

    ReplyDelete

Make my day and leave me a love note!
