As an added on note - this came in from our team leader (which confirms my frustration with our team):
I hate to say it but we are currently in 3rd place in all categories, both for the week and overall. We actually had a gain overall of 0.1 pounds this week, which is a first for this team (both of the other teams have recorded gain weeks before).
Overall we are 1200 cardio minutes behind the 2nd place team, 1300 ST minutes behind the 2nd place team, and 200 ATC points behind the 2nd place team. We also would have needed to lose another 7.8 pounds to catch up to the 2nd place team overall in weight loss.
Weight loss winners: CHANCE04, MOLLIEJEAN2, KAMEE720, and KKLIONESS013 all lost over 1 pound
Cardio champions: THINK2BFIT, DAVENPLK, MYSPARKLER, and 2BSXYKITTEN all accumulated over 400 minutes
Strength Training superstars: KAMEE720, THINK2BFIT, MYSPARKLER, and GREBJACK all totaled over 150 minutes.
Thanks for all your efforts. Remember, this is a team effort. We're all working together on this. No one should feel bad if they had an off week. It happens to everyone. Part of being on a team is encouraging others, especially if they are struggling, and cheering when other team members have good weeks. Let's put week 5 behind us, we can't change it, and just focus on the remaining weeks of the challenge.

3 Weekly Place 4,202 Weekly Minutes Cardio (I did 765 minutes of this number)

3 Weekly Place 350 ATC points
(ATC points are earned from the challenges we do each week.
I earned 125 of these 350 points - that means the other 20 people only earned a total 225 points - divided by 20 people averages 11.25 points per person. This is so very sad!!)
It's so frustrating to be on a team where your teammates who made a conscience decision to join - have not lived up to their commitment. One more week of this challenge. I'm not sure I want to do it again - especially when 3/4 of the team members refuse to join in. Argh!
