A co-worker mentioned that one of the popular diets, when you go to your weigh-in, if you go over or do not lose weight, you pay them money.
This got me to thinking.... So I am trying the 23847th thing and hopefully this one is the LAST ONE.
My friend Amy and I are going to weigh in each Wednesday morning with pictures to prove.
We have set a 2 lb goal for each week ending on 7/13/11 for a total of 20 weeks.
For each lb lost, we get $5 in our "bank"
For each lb gained, we lose $5
If we stay the same, we get $1
For every inch we lose, we get $0.50
The idea is that on 7/13/11, whoever has reached their goal of 40lbs, the winner gets bragging rights.
The person who fails to reach their goal has to pay the amount of money they lost plus the amount of money the winner accrued.
If we both lose, which will NOT happen, than we both owe money to a third party.
If we both win, quite possible, than we both ARE 40 lbs THINNER!!!
My friend and I are quite competitive with each other so it has already started with a bang with lots of smack talking.
I have to say I feel quite comfortable because I know 2 lbs is doable, it is just enough to keep me going on the right path but with none of the overwhelming tension.
This wednesday will be our first weigh in. I feel very positive with how it is going and I hope I can keep it up.
I am ready to live my life - really live with energy and positivity and creativity.
