Losing It! 11 12 10

Okay Losing It! Ladies. It’s time to get serious. The evil holidays are upon us. I’ve already baked more in the last few weeks than I have all year. It’s time to buckle down. It’s time to truly pay attention to everything that goes in your mouth. It’s time to MAINTAIN!

Notice I didn’t say lose. Seriously, who’s worried about losing right now? Well, actually I’m sort of trying. But more than losing, I’m trying to MAINTAIN!

So, I thought I’d give us an incentive. A little motivation. A contest if you will. Are you ready? Are you with me?

Here’s the rules:

  • The contest will run from today, November 12, 2010 through Friday, January 7, 2011. That’s the whole holiday season – all 8 weeks of it.
  • You must link up or give an update in the comments section for 6 of the 8 weeks to be considered eligible for the competition. (See, that would be the accountability part.)
  • There will be one grand prize winner. That will be the person who loses the largest percentage of their weight during this eight weeks. That means you need to go weigh yourself TODAY!
  • Anyone who either maintains or loses during the eight week period will be put in a drawing for a second prize. If you maintain during the holidays, you deserve a chance at a prize!

The prizes:

Grand Prize – a $25 Gift Card to Target and a this beautiful necklace from The Mercy House Shop

Second Prize – a $25 Gift Card to Target

So ladies are you with me? Are you taking the challenge? Are you going to keep it off throughout the holidays? Our first big test is coming up in just a few weeks. Be prepared ladies. Be prepared.

We can do it ladies! Decide now that you will not be heavier on January 7th. Decide now that you will be accountable for all that you do over the next 8 weeks. Decide now that it really does matter what you eat during the holidays. Decide now to not consider those calories freebies because it’s a family gathering. Decide now ladies!!

Be sure to link up or make a comment if you intend to participate. Let’s help each other make it through the next eight weeks!

    Hope you had a good week… you didn’t say if you lost, gained or maintained this week??

  5. All right, Kathy, I’ll give it another go. Cindy made sure I knew you were doing this, and I can’t resist a challenge! 🙂 I’m in.

    (And the fact that I just ate three Rice Krispy Treats – yes, THREE – will only help my starting weight situation.) 😉

    • That’s right Mary, way to sacrifice so I can win. 🙂 Although Rice Krispy Treats sound DELISH! Glad I am at work so I don’t wander into the kitchen and whip up a batch. 🙂

    • Way to go Mary! I’ll start working my muscles so I’ll be ready to “online arm wrestle” you this time around. Hee hee!
