7) Try to sleep for : 7 hours every night ( minimum )
yes हमें पता है, मुंबई जैसे शहर में ये सुहानी चीज़, रोज़ हर सब को नसीब हो ये ज़रूरी नहीं. ( Yes we know not every one is lucky enough in large metro like Mumbai to have assured 7 hours good sound sleep )
Scoring : 7 hours sleep all nights
6 to 7 hours (or even more) sleep : any random days : you score :6/7
(example :दो रात आप 6 घंटे सो पाये, चार रात्रि 7 घंटे सो सके, और एक रात 8 घंटे… Your score:6/7
Less than 6 hours sleep , even for one day out of 7 days : 5/7
Anything less than above configuration : 3/7
( power naps during the day are not to be counted. Afternoon sleep is not be counted)
By this time we are able to finalise our tasks after discussions, debates, addition, removal in such a way that the challenges are posted at least one day in advance i.e by Friday. This is also essential as one of our long distance participant is Neha . She is in Australia and her time zone needs some kind of advance notification to take care of logistics related food items.
Sunday starts with Sanjay’s polite request to post the score by afternoon and direct message “If some one not giving scores for 3 consecutive weeks , she or he will be termed as not interested and will be removed from the project and related group. This is not merely a fun competition . This is BNPGRs thoughtful and serious step taken for their members to make their run easy.
Nice to see that in three weeks we have gained extra wisdom !!”
If this is not enough Suvendu makes it more challenging to laggards and lethargic participants , his challenge “friends …don’t take me wrong …but any score less than 35 ( out of 47 ) is not good for you and for the group.
01/10/2017, 11:03 am – 22134 99205 91+ : I 2nd Suvendu on that. Most of the tasks that have been provided are more about following a discipline in your routine, which in turn will help us in the following weeks.
So now we have motivators , we have genuine pushers , we have team developers .
Towards Sunday night ( 1st October : day 1 of week 3) Suvendu asks a trick question. He wants to club warm water task with green tea
“If green tea taken post dinner before sleep , will it qualify as 2 points? “
Deepa K responds with few words : No…only one point..green tea
And soon follows the chai pe charcha ( the longest tea-talk)
02/10/2017, 9:46 am – 14777 98198 91+ : Green tea post dinner will only disturb your sleep
02/10/2017, 9:48 am – 22202 99200 91+ : 😆😂 suvendu was trying to club warm water before sleep and adding green tea to get 2 points
02/10/2017, 9:49 am – 14777 98198 91+ : 😪 02/10/2017, 9:51 am – Sanjay Raut BNP: सही पकडे है 😝
02/10/2017, 10:06 am – 27445 99301 91+ : In-fact Google says it’s helps in digestion if taken post meal. Have seen Japanese taking it post every meal. I too take green tea or variant of it post dinner and never had issues with my sleep.
02/10/2017, 10:37 am – 44839 98676 91+ : But neha Japanese always have their dinner between 6-7. So time does matter. There should be gap of 23hrs between ur dinner and bedtime.
02/10/2017, 10:40 am – Sanjay Raut BNP: मीनाक्षी आधी जापानी है 😀 02/10/2017, 10:46 am – 27445 99301 91+ : Agreed… So r u also saying that the same gap needs to be maintain between taking green-tea and bed-time ? 02/10/2017, 10:47 am – 44839 98676 91+ : Yes 02/10/2017, 10:48 am – 27445 99301 91+ : Oks.
01/10/2017, 18:36 – Deepa Katrodia BNP: Guy’s tomorrow I want selfi pictures with green tea☕🤳
01/10/2017, 10:24 pm – 2 6529 81699 91+ : While appreciating the extra efforts put in by team leaders, a selfie with green tea seems a bit offbeat. Having a selfie with green tea doesn’t guarantee completion of task, rather it is the diligence on the part of the participants that serves the purpose…. 😊
01/10/2017, 10:31 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: We trust our team members won’t do such a thing .. it’s one way to motivate fellow members to encourage having green tea and of course keep the fun quotient up!
01/10/2017, 10:31 pm – Sanjay Raut BNP: Completion of task and its reporting in terms of score is left to the honesty of participants. And we all believe in them strongly. A Selfie with GREEN tea is just added fun, an innovative twist which I think everyone has understood.
01/10/2017, 10:34 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: Enjoy guys… We r adding some fun to this serious weight loss project…😀
01/10/2017, 10:39 pm – 65292 81699 91+ : 😀 so basically it’s not a compulsion … thank you I am not very comfortable posting pics/selfie but rest assured trying to complete the tasks …. 😊
02/10/2017, 9:49 pm – 06424 98205 91+ : Green tea… one must have it 2 -3 times a day… my personal favourite is Organic Tulsi Green Tea.. I feel one should avoid diff favoured like ginger , lemon green tea n all… n consume more of pure green tea. I was suffering from dust allergy for many years.. but since I started consuming green tea… I have controlled on the same… So guys… U may feel little different for few days… but let me assure u once u r use to it…u will love it forever… so keep sipping green tea…
02/10/2017, 9:53 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: Subodh..Thanks for sharing your experience n health benefits u hv got by ‘adding’ green tea to your life ! Other team members I hope you will appreciate his wonderful and continuous journey with green tea ,By the end of this week u will get use to it😄
04/10/2017, 10:17 am – Sheela Harani Bnp: As wise people say…Things n situations mature with time….So does the taste of green tea….Enjoy your cuppa..And just keep the faith!👍🏻
The team leader’s let’s do it post :
03/10/2017, 10:42 am – Deepa Katrodia Bnp: Good morning friends,
Girls, do you remember that pretty dress, which you used to wear in the parties and all the eyes used to turn around you or for men, that jeans which used to be so comfortable you used wear it everywhere.
But, alas…wo pretty dress ab ye body size me jata nahi, ya wo jeans abhibhi cupboard me hai per pehen nahi sakte. Reason, of course, unwanted extra weight :(Now its the time, to get it outs, and aapne aap se vaada karo, ye remaining 10 week me, mai fir se ise pehen saku. Aap apna itana accha dress/jeans aise hi bhula nahi sakate…kyu???
Aur jinke paas aise purane dress abhi wardrobe me nahi hai, mai to kehti hu, apne liye ek one short size dress/jeans le lo, aur pratigya karo ki mera weigh/size ye dress ke hisab se karunga/karungi. Jab kharcha hoga to motivation apne aap badhega 😉

Day 4 :Why No Weight loss seen???
[10/4, 9:42 AM] Bhagyashree Mahale Bnp: My weight is not going down now..Do i do a GM diet for next 3 days? [10/4, 10:08 AM] Deepa Mhambre Bnp: Hi. Don’t feel disheartened at not losing weight…no problem. Somtyms, you lose it slow. Ther will b tyms Wen you will lose one week, may not lose in the nxt week…n so on. It’s perfectly fine.
We would not suggest GM diet coz it’s a crash diet. U can’t sustain that weight loss. A gradual weight loss is better than a drastic one.
Discussion on sleep:How much is possible?
01/10/2017, 21:14 – Bimal Agarwal BNP: Deepa.. 7 hrs sleep is difficult coupled with runs or gym schedules 😅😊
01/10/2017, 21:15 – Bimal Agarwal BNP: Lots of marks will be lost here it seems☺
01/10/2017, 21:21 – Deepa Katrodia BNP: Tring Tringgg Tring Tringgg:
This is your Hot Water Alarm.
Please drink Hot Water before going to bed.
01/10/2017, 21:27 – Bimal Agarwal BNP: 👍Sone ke liye alarm… Abhi tak jagne ke liye suna tha😂( Wow , Alarm for sleeping in time !! Till now was only used to only getting up )
Some important clarification:
01/10/2017, 8:37 pm – Sheela Harani Bnp: So sorry indira for delay in reply..Actual quantity of protein intake for veg/non veg …Is actually subject of a dietician….As you very well know this bnpgr program is a very generalised one we are only giving different asks each week which are not technically defined in terms of quantity per individual…I suggest to get in depth detail you can feel free to consult a dietician on this … 01/10/2017, 8:50 pm – 45085 98690 91+ : Ok….Thanks so much.
End of the 3rd Week : The results:
08/10/2017, 6:33 pm – Sanjay Raut BNP: The very famous Bollywood dialogue goes…. *”डॉन को पकडना मुजककल दह नही……….”*
Well, the Dons among the losers this week are….
*Deepa’s Dabangg Losers*👏🏻👏🏻
They have raced past the other two teams that उनको पकडना मुश्किल ही नही, नामुमकीन भी था 😁😁
But folks, the race is not won yet….many more weeks to go… So, get set… ready…n charge!!!!..…towards this week’s challenge👍🏻👍🏻
All the best LOSERS!!!!
*PS: a very fitting tribute by team Dabangg to their team leader Deepa Katrodia who completed the triathlon challenge tdy at Chennai

08/10/2017, 6:38 pm – 30556 93200 91+ : 👍👍 Thanks Deepa for leading from the front and pushing the team almost on a daily basis
