BLONDE2B (Shannon) ~ Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of Physical Training


WELCOME

To those of you who are new to BLC , welcome and to those who have been with BLC in previous rounds and wanted a change we welcome you as well.  We do things a little differently, which should be expected, after all we’re the FBI.  In this FBI Headquarters page you will find everything you need to participate.  We’ll get more into that a little further down.

I’m Mary (TRUNKJUNK) your Executive Director and I am so excited for the start of this round and can't wait to meet each new team members (henceforth known as Agents).   I’d like to keep things informal but there are a few rules we have to follow.


FBI Mission Statement – We Protect, Combat and Support.  We’re to Protect our bodies so that we can live healthier lives.  We’re to Combat obesity, weight-related health conditions and apathy.  We’re to support our teammates and be there for each other.  FBI believes it takes many attributes to truly be a Beauty.  We will need the following in our make-up bag – encouragement, inner strength, positive attitude, determination and commitment.  

Our Team Mantra is simply – NO EXCUSES!

FBI is a fun-loving group that believes it takes good nutrition, exercise, strength training, a healthy lifestyle and the interaction of fellow Agents to help achieve our ultimate weight loss goals.   We want to exude beauty in our posts, our support, our health and ultimately in our transformed bodies.  

FBI expects our Agents will post often and compete in ALL challenges (barring approved exemptions).  Of course perfection is great but most of all we strive for participation.  When you participate we can work towards perfection.  FBI is here to support, inspire and challenge each other as we work together toward our individual weight loss goals.  We believe we learn from one another.  Most of all FBI wants to have fun, form new friendships, make lifetime changes and most of all succeed as we pursue our weight loss endeavors.


Rules and Expectations:

FBI Agents need to be fit and trim or at least striving to get there.  We are all about the exercise and eating well. Our hope is that each of you will make it a priority to get cardio and strength training done on a regular basis. We believe cardio at least 3 days and strength work (Tactical Thursday & Tuesday) at least 2 days a week are paramount for good success with our fitness goals. We also believe good, wholesome foods with a tiny bit of junk thrown in "once in a while" are important for our health and fitness. We aren't going to send the Top Brass out to enforce this but, since you are on this team, obviously you want to get or stay healthy and fit. Please set your standards high for exercise and nutrition and work your hardest to meet your own expectations.


1.  WEIGH-IN WEEKLY: You MUST weigh in and post your weight each week on Wednesday by midnight of your time zone.

2.   POST OFTEN: We work best when we all feel a part of a team FBI. That happens when we each feel as if we know each other. We get to know each other when we read about you, your struggles, your achievements, your families and lives on the chat thread. Nothing is off limits as long as it's respectful and tasteful. We are here for fitness and weight loss but we are also here for friendship. BLC expects us to post at least three times a week. We find the more successful FBI Agents are the ones who’ll post at least once a day and sometimes several times a day.

3.   RESPECT YOUR FELLOW AGENTS: Sometimes print communications get misunderstood. We want to encourage a safe and comfortable climate here. Please be respectful with each other. If you feel offended by a post, re-read the post. It's possible the "tease" was not clear or the "wink" was not seen. Also, we each come from different backgrounds, cultures and belief systems so some may think or believe differently than you which are fine! If you truly feel offended by something, please discuss it with the other person or with the Executive Director or Deputy Director OFF THE THREAD via Spark Mail. Let’s give each other the benefit of the doubt.

4.   PARTICIPATE IN CHALLENGES: We will have Weekend Challenges every week Friday-Monday.  Although participation in these is optional, please consider doing them. They are fun and are designed to get you on track and keep you on track. Results of these challenges will be posted and shared.

We have lots of daily and weekly events to keep us challenged and engaged like Tactical Tuesday and Thursdays.  Other tasks will be QOTD (Question of the Day) a daily Quote, Motivation Tip, Weekly Team Digest will include Weekly and Overall Biggest Loser, Celebrations, Team News, WECs (weekend challenges, etc.).  We will also track our exercise minutes.

As FBI Agents there is no crying  but nonetheless if you feel the need to cry let us know so we can cry with you.   We’re a team.
