New Year's's almost that time again

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

I've been gazing at my Spark goal board and contemplating the very real possibility that I could still reach my weight loss goal on schedule. I need to re-lose about 7 pounds, and then an additional 13 pounds. That's 20 pounds in 20 weeks: I CAN DO IT!

This is the time to make bets on my weight loss: I am betting myself $200 that I can reach this goal on schedule. If I lose, the $200 goes to...not sure, stay tuned. Some people say that because loss aversion is a great motivator, they promised to give the money to their least favorite politician if they lost. I'm not really up on politics, so I'll have to think of some other "cause" to give the money to. Hmmmm.

I'm sure my wife could think of lots of things to do with $200, haha. In any case, I'm betting I will WIN this one!

    On my first diet when I was 19 my father said he would give me 1 English pound for every pound I lost.

  Win or lose you are a winner.
