So, I enjoy reading this guy's blog. He is very direct, to the point, and generally no BS when it comes to losing weight.
A few days ago he posted a challenge, and I wanted to do it. I didn't know what the prize was before I signed up - thought is would be a t-shirt or something, but I really didn't care about the prize - I just wanted a motivator.
It's a straightforward challenge: Drink enough fluids to keep your body hydrated at it's current weight, and eat enough calories to maintain your GOAL weight.
The challenge ends June 15th....and the person with the highest percentage of the weight that they want to lose, lost...WINS!
My starting weight for the challenge is 452 (the weight discrepency is due the fact that I picked my starting weight for the challenge based on my home scale, and I weigh at my shake ladies place for my official weekly weigh ins).
On Sunday, Allan posted the prize for the challenge:
The winner and a guest will receive
2 round trip tickets from anywhere in the Continental US to NYC
The flight is on Nov 28th
Accommodations at The Jewel Hotel for 3 nights
Party the night of the 29th during the
NBC/Rock Center Tree Lighting Event
Theater Tickets with me the night of the 30th
Return flight on the 1st of December
Umm...yea....I'd say that's some motivation!
Now...onto my weigh in:
33 pounds in two months! Pretty great...is it good enough to win a trip to NYC? I dunno...but I'm totally stepping it up!!!
Most exciting thing...16.5 inches gone around my belly! Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
Time to kick it up a notch, Emeril style, ya'll!
