Dad versus Amanda: Who will lose the most weight?
Tuesday, February 09, 2010
So, I got phone call from my Dad last night and I ended up telling him about my weight loss so far. He decides to throw down a challenge: Who can lose the most weight by March 20, 2010? That happens to be my sister's birthday as well as the day that I will be home for Spring Break. I accept and we both set down terms as well as what we get if we win. I ask Dad what he wanted if he won, he says a Michelob Ultra. Since, I had my 21st birthday in June, Dad is more open about drinking alcohol in front of me. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't drink very often. Occasionally, I'll get the urge to drink, but like I said, it doesn't happen very often. I told him that my reward would be a Mike's Hard Lemonade Light because I am not a huge fan of beer. It cracks me up that beer is what my dad wants for his weight loss reward, but why not? Plus, I love to win and this is that little bit of motivation to keep on going.
I am hoping to lose 12 pounds by then. If I do, then I will be down to 208! Then, I can lose 10 more pounds to break 200! I will be so thrilled to be out of the 200s!
Just wanted to share that challenge with the world. I love that my dad is trying to lose the weight, too and that we can work together to motivate and encourage one another.
2010 is the year of weight loss, baby!
