Weight Loss '08 Challenge.

So I don't know how many people really read my blog, but I'm always surprised when someone I seldomly chat with asks, "So you still at 168lbs?" I guess that means more people read my blog than I thought. That's pretty darn cool.



Here's the back story on this crazy idea. The scale is at Trek Store of Omaha as well as a spreadsheet I conjured up with my mad pc skillz. So if you feel like it, hop on the scale and hop into fitness by adding your name to the list(want nachos with that cheese?) . I have 10 name places on the spreadsheet, so if enough people join in, I'll make another list. All you have to do is weigh in the first time as a starting point, then weigh in each week, or monthly, or whatever till the first week of May. I figure that'll give all of us plenty of time to safely lose some of the "winter insulation" that occurs naturally.

We can play for money, or not. I suggested a buck a pound lost, the winner keeps their money and collects other's who agreed to join in the monetary part of the game. I have thought about going to a percentage of weight loss setup, but I'm not sure how that would work. If anyone has any thoughts or experience in this type of fun competition, please respond. Or, just respond anyway with your comments and whether you're planning on joining in.

Here's to everyone having a safe and healthy '08 with as many fun rides as possible.
