Will I Be The Biggest Loser??

When I wrote my February Update of my goals for this year, I mentioned that I had not had much luck in the weight loss department. I also mentioned that I had joined a "Biggest Loser" group at school. We had our first meeting today and had our "official" weigh-in.

I would guess we had at least 15 ladies sign up this morning. We each contributed $10. The person who has the overall biggest percentage of weight loss after 8 weeks will win all the money!!

I am NOT going to tell you what my weight was today so don't even ask! The only "rule" of the game is that we must all agree to wear the same exact thing to our weigh-ins. I chose to bring in work-out clothes to weigh with, and then change back in to my work clothes later. I am at a slight disadvantage, since a lot of the people doing this challenge go to the gym, and while I would love to go, it's just not in the budget right now. (Remember...I'm in FPU...) If anyone would like to take me as their guest, just let me know.

I will keep you updated on my weekly weight-loss percentage.

That sounds like a fun and motivational way to do it. I got a "free gym membership" for you... come carry my 14 lb. baby around all day to tone up arm muscles & chasing around my 2 year old is a good calorie burner too! I'm sure now that Quinn is walking your calorie burner is him:o)

Good luck! Nothing like a little money at stake to really make you think twice before eating something with lots of calories! (Just remember - Dave Ramsey would want you to get gazelle intense to lose the weight so you could win that money!)
