So I issued this online weight loss challenge to people in my email address list. Starts now (or when you want), ends May 1. Each participant contributes $40 and the winner (most weight lost - % wise) gets the pot. So far 11 people have jumped up for the challenge. If you want to join, let me know - the bigger the pot - the more incentive. To verify your starting weight, send me a picture of you on the scale (feet only, please!).
Now, onto the REAL reason for the post (but I had to give you the history).
I woke up this morning to the Ironman in true training form. He had already taken his picture on the scale for the record. He was cruising the Internet while eating his breakfast - I'm sure looking for tips on "Clean Eating in 2009". And his breakfast - egg whites with a black bean salsa topping and a bowl of oatmeal with fresh blackberries. And since I saw flax seed on the counter, I'm sure that it was added to one or both of his entrees.
I'm having a slower start - I made coffee and I took my xanax and zoloft - breakfast of champions! I did record my weight with a photo - that was a little disturbing, but done.
So all I have to do is follow the Ironman's lead, and I'll have this challenge in the bag - WAY easier said than done! Happy New Year! Hopefully you were smart and didn't make any resolutions - or if you did - you made ones like: I will drink more this year, or I will eat more candy this year, or I will not exercise this year. Now, those are my kind of resolutions. But since I am married to the Ironman, I'll be sticking with the Weight Loss Challenge.
