Question for those on the Lead, Follow, or Get out the Way challenge

I'm almost done completing the Bronze stage of the challenge. The Green stage was strictly a getting started stage where all you had to do was spend 3 months doing it. Kind of a break in stage. There were no requirements for moving to Bronze other than spend 3 months in the Green stage, although you were supposed to create and follow 3 simple core rules and start exercising.

I wanted the Bronze stage to have some requirements that had to be met before moving to the Silver stage. For that reason, the Bronze stage duration is simply a minimum of 3 months, but may take longer for some. I wanted some requirements that would force people to take action with their diet, CR's, and exercise.

So there is one fitness requirement. You simply set your own goal and have to complete it and it has to be fitness related (like run a certain distance, bench press a certain wt 10 times, etc). Each individual sets their own goal.

I was thinking of adding a wt loss requirement (unless you have reached your goal wt). The reasoning behind this is because it forces you to make diet changes if you aren't losing a reasonable amount. Its easy to just think, well I should try to eat more greens, and then not really do anything about it. Its also possible to have CR's that don't really address the issue with your wt loss. A requirement to lose a certain amount would force everyone to make adjustments if they aren't losing wt or at a reasonable pace.

On the other hand, I don't want to alienate people. Plus some peoples ship face more difficult currents and head winds. I realize its generally easier for a younger person to shed pounds than an older person, naturally skinny people easier than those that have struggled their entire life.

So I was thinking of adding a requirement that to move out of Bronze and into Silver, a person would have to lose a minimum of 3lbs (unless they reached their ideal wt). Since the Bronze stage is a minimum of 3 months long, that would be 1lb per month.

So what do you think. Would I be insensitive to do that? Would it alienate some who regardless need to stay on the program even if they lose nothing? Or would it be a good thing, since it would force people to face up to the need to make changes in their diet and take action? I don't think giving people the easy way out is always doing them a favor. If someone spends a year in a challenge, I want them to have something to show for it. Plus, you aren't out of the challenge if you don't get their in 3 months. It just takes you a little longer to move into Silver.

No opinion will hurt my feelings so be frank and remain anonymous.
Thanks in advance,
Peelout

By the way, if anyone else is interested in finding out more about the challenge, it is on the Progress Not Perfection 2013 team community tab and is called the Lead, Follow, or Get out of the Way challenge. It is currently being updated to include the 2nd stage called the Bronze stage (update will be out by Oct 3). Not everyone is on the same week of the challenge and new people can join at anytime. Everyone starts at week 1 in the Green stage, but you get the same level of support regardless of where you are in the challenge.

i don't think its insensitive to put a weight requirement to move to silver. 1 pound a month.. unless at goal weight is doable.. plus no one is getting kicked off at any point.. you just decide how long it takes you to get to the next level by how much you commit to the process plus it may push us and challenge us more knowing there are requirements. im thinking of my fitness challenge.. that will be some good accountability as well.i love this challenge.. thank you for the time and effort you put into it.

Peelout's proposed eight-loss requirement for moving from bronze to silver

I think a three-pound weight loss over a three-month period is reasonable.

I think it makes sense. Could be a nice jolt and added motivation for those who are not hitting their goals.

Very reasonable goal and requirement! I am so happy that you put the time in and total up for us! This challenge has really helped me focus on my goals and really change my habits. I am stronger in resolve and am finally getting closer to my goals. -sass

Seems to be unanimous that you should have the weight loss goal. And it's nice that the Bronze phase can be extended if you don't make the goals you set.

It's kind of like the tests they give here in school - you have to show a certain level of successful learning if you want to graduate.

OK, I didn't get any opposed comments so I added it to the challenge.
