UUBL is Ukulele Underground Biggest Loser!

Give yourself the gift of a new healthy body by Christmas!!!

Its basically setup to be just like the TV version of UUBL, however instead of being "Kicked Out" if you have a bad week, you stay in for the duration!

And instead of $, you win... A UKULELE!

Win a Kala Soprano Travel Uke

We Thank Rick at

for donating this uke for our competition!

This uke came to us via Tim (aka Ukeeku)! Check out Ukeeku.com

and his review here!​

The "Rules"
1. weight loss based on percentage of starting weight.
2. weight in good ole Pounds ( Online weight conversion with an impressive array of units to choose from. )
3. contest to go from August 21 - November 21 (the Monday before Thanksgiving)
4. weights taken once a week, at the same time (can be Saturday or Sunday) and reported before 9pm Sunday. Results posted Monday morning. If you miss the weigh-in, send in your numbers when you can and I will add them to the spreadsheet as soon as possible!
5. weigh ins are recorded by pictures of your scale
6. contestants will be encouraged to keep a daily blog of the experience and to discuss! This will help, believe me.

If anyone is interested in donating prizes for mid-round prizes, please let me know!

I asked Shane, aka Ukeshale, a personal fitness trainer, if he would be willing to give fitness advice to anyone needing help. He is very happy to offer his advice and expertise on the subject! He has a wealth of knowledge and experience and has been very helpful to UUBLers in the past including myself!

How do I sign up?
Let me know in this thread!

You in?

I may be a bit dim, what what is UUBL?
I'm in!

I'm going for performance and body composition rather than "weight loss" though.
Sign me up Lil' Sister.... ;)
I'm in!

Count me in!
Yep.. Count me in.. I need to lose a few pounds..
I am so glad to see the mix of old and new faces! This is going to be a great round people! Hopefully we will get some more people on board. The more the merrier... and more motivation!!!
As per our UWC convo.. I'm out this round... (dropping the immediate weight of the baby once I have him wouldn't be fair, and additionally, Its not healthy to diet while preggo! hehe)

BUT, I'll be in the cheering section!

and, I'll be in for the spring session :)
Good luck UUBL'ers!
I'm in. I've been craving that kala soprano for some time now. And boy does some weight need to come off. Are there any stickers or magnets of this lovely uku for me to post on the frig?
