our biggest loser competition

Sunday, November 01, 2009

I'm competing agaist my family in our own version of "the biggest loser" these are the rules:

12 contestants (5 guys, 4 gals)
each of us payed $20 to enter
if you GAIN weigh you'll pay $5 per pound you gain
We started in July and the last weight in will be on Nov. 14th (4 months)
We are doing % of weight loss to make it fair

Yesterday was the first time I saw most of my competitors and I didn't see much change in any of them (I'm sure they are thinking the same about me LOL! )

I didn't start my journey until late September and now I'm very regretful I didn't start as soon as we gave the $ I would have been almost in my weight goal by now :( ANYHOW.. is better late than never and I think I'm doing pretty good. I'm just going to cross my fingers and hope that nobody lost alot of weight ;)

I want that money but more than that I want bragging rights! I kind of have a little competition with my sister-in-law. She's not even aware that I'm focusing on her but is helping me be more motivated!!

I'm 13 lbs lighter and my goal is to lose 20 lbs by Nov. 14th so I just REALLY, REALLY hope I don't hit a plateau again!!

    I love the idea of having a contest within your family--that way everyone wins by getting healthier! This is the toughest time of year for me. Even though I know better, all of the Halloween candy, Thanksgiving fixings, and Christmas parties are big temptations for me. I've decided to ramp up my exercise. If you get down and need a lift, send me a note and I will try to help you lose that last 20 pounds (motivating others helps me too so feel free to ask!)
