Every year my wife and I ride our bikes in The Ride Across Minnesota, or TRAM for short. It's a 5-day, 300-mile ride that raises money for MS research (my wife has MS). Well, our Team Captain recently asked if I would join in a weight loss challenge with him. It's very simple: he's gunning for 170, I'm gunning for 190-195. If he reaches his goal and I do not by the TRAM (July 2010), I have to buy him coffee each day of the ride, and vice versa. If we both reach our goals we'll go dutch and celebrate the victory together!
It's simple, and perhaps silly, but it's given me the motivation I need to find someway to break through this plateau I've been on for the longest time. Hopefully it will work!
