We have today released a new version of The Chubby Challenge including some great new features and lots of bug fixes.

Firstly a big thank you to all that have taken part in the beta testing of the site and have fed back much valuable information that has allowed us to make great improvements. Keep the feedback coming as this will allow us to make the site a great place to be.

So to the changes. The first and most obvious is a change to the graph that shows your weight over the last sixty days. It has been changed to be slightly more appealing to view, although the information that it displays is the same. By the way, did you know that if you hove over the points on the graph it will show you your weight on each day?

The next change is the ability to send updates on your progress to Facebook. You will see a new “Share on Facebook” button on the home page under the graph that allows you to post an update to your news feed. It doesn’t post your weight details you will be pleased to know although you can obviously include this if you wish.

We have also made it easier to invite people to a challenge. In addition to entering the email addresses of people you want to invite you can now also invite by Facebook or by sending someone an invite link. To send by Facebook, on the challenge page, click the “Invite by Facebook” button, enter the names of your Facebook friends you want to invite, type a message and click Send. This will be sent to them as a private message with a link allowing them to join your challenge.

The final way to invite people is to cut and paste the invite link shown on the challenge page and then use this as you wish. The invite link is a short web address such as and can be emailed, posted on Facebook, sent as a tweet or even written on a letter! It is up to you!

The option to invite people by email address is still available from whenever you first create a challenge or when you update it from the “Manage this Challenge” page.

We hope that you find the above useful and make The Chubby Challenge even easier to use and if you have any comments or suggestions please raise them on our support site ( or send us an email.
