So…. At my office they started the Biggest Loser competition. I received the flyer and read it over and thought about it, BUT I DON'T want to be judged daily for what I eat and weigh by the same people that judge my work ability. Work is enough pressure! And I didn't want to toss in 25 of my dollars for someone else to win.
Mother - 3Daughter Challenge
I would rather work with and support my 3 daughters in a weight loss challenge. So, as the Mom, I propose that I toss in $25 for each member of our team - 4 - so $100.
The Challenge for Yvette, Carlyn and Ara DiAnn is to lose as much weight, in a healthy fashion, by Dec. 19, 2010. Our official starting date will be this Sun. Aug. 8, 2010. Emmalee's part of the challenge is that she NOT gain the Freshman 15 from her wrestling weight of 148. (Emmalee has already agreed to this and she wants to be in full support of us loosing.)
Things to do: Weigh in Sun. Aug. 8 or Mon. 9th and send text to Mom.
(I don't care if we share with each other, just not publicly)
Watch what we eat - how much we eat - drink water.
Find an exercise routine that works for you.
Set you own goal - make it realistic - 5 to 10 pounds/month
Continue to support each other in prayer
Commit to write on the blog at least once a week.
Write accomplishments and failures on this blog
Share any helpful advise through the blog.
On Dec. 19th we will all weigh in and send text to Mom. By using % calculations for loosing and gaining, I will determine the winner and the $100 will be in their Christmas stocking.
I have ordered some materials that I will share with each of you through private e-mails only because it is purchased materials. We can share the results of our use of these materials. When they come in, the first thing I will share is a "Metabolic Typing Test" for us each to take. It will help us learn about what type of foods & eating habits best satisfy us. We could all be the same or all completely different.
Your Dad will benefit from my change of cooking and shopping habits and he will really like that. Kevin should benefit too for the same reasons. I also think both men should take the Metabolic Test, then we can supplement foods that will help them be satisfied.
It is about time that "the MOM" set a good example in the eating area. I am ready physically and mentally to take this challenge with you.
So, let me know if you are willing to take the Challenge together.
Love you all, Mom
