I Burned 5,000 Calories! I Lost 10 Lbs!

There are time based and goal based challenges based upon weight loss but only time based for body fat. It would be nice to have it based upon a goal so for example we can shoot for say 5% in 2 months

I Lost 5 Lbs! I Burned 25K Calories! I Burned 5,000 Calories!

The Body Fat challenges are brand new, so we are initially releasing them with only a Time-Based option. There are, however, a couple of everybody wins-style Body Fat challenges that are Goal-Based. One of the main issues with the standard Goal-Based challenges is that they are vulnerable to false-wins (somebody accidentally enters in the wrong value and closes the challenge).

What does everyone else think? Is having a few Goal-Based “Everybody Wins” Body Fat challenges enough, or would you like the ability to create your own as well?

I see that now, I think it was the wording that made me overlook it. I like the 5%, should be doable….I need to set my goals a little at a time. thanks

Prefontaine's Prodigy I Burned 50K Calories! I Lost 50 LBS! I Ran 100 Miles! I Burned 25K Calories! Honorary Olympian I Walked 100 Miles! I Burned 5,000 Calories! Gold Medalist I Lost 35 Lbs! Champion I Biked 100 Miles! I've Lost It! I Lost 20 Lbs! I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs!

I can see it both ways. I think it would be nice to be able to create goal-based challenges.
Thanks for adding the new types of challenges, by the way. I just noticed today (and went on a challenge-joining-frenzy).
Random suggestion: Can we possibly create challenges in the future that allow a set number of multiple winners, like first, second, and third place? It might make sense to only enable the multiple winners feature when there are a set number of challengers (like five, perhaps, or ten), but I think it would be nice touch.
