    I'm sick and tired of being fat. I used to be skinny. I used to be cute. I used to have energy. Now I'm lazy and I'm tired all the time.

    I let myself become a slacker and now I look in the mirror and I'm disgusted. I need some motivation and someone to keep me on track.

    Because of this I have decided to start a challenge. I'm going to steal a name and call it...

    [size=10pt][size=10pt][size=10pt]The Biggest Loser[/size][/size][/size]​

    What: A Weight Loss Competition

    Cost: $15 per person

    The competition will last for 63 days with a starting date of March 4th and will end May 6th. Anyone wanting to join is welcome.

    How it works: I'm going to try this on the honor system. Everyone mails to me $15. I then place that $15 in a separate account. On March 4th those interested in joining should have already given me their $15 and will then inform me of their weigh in weight.

    Every Wednesday each person should weigh him/herself and report to me what your weight loss/gain is for the week. You should weigh yourself in the same clothing every week and weigh yourself at the same time of the day.

    For those close to me I will be beginning an exercise group on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm for anyone interested in joining. This will not be a high impact group, just something along the line of walk away the pounds. If you are interested in joining I will have a scale available for weighing in at that time.

    Those who are just looking for the motivation and group support and do not wish to spend $15 are welcome to join, you just won't win the payout at the end of the competition.

    At the end of the competition the winner will be the person who has lost the most weight.

    The winner of the competition will receive 90% of the winnings while the person who comes in second will receive 10% of the winnings.

    I can be emailed at [email protected] or called at 217-202-4888 for those interested in competing.

    Wish I lived closer to you. I would take you up on this.
    I have been doing everything on my own.

    I don't have paypal set up.

    You just need to send a check for $15 to

    Alyson Suits
    2655 CR 2600 E
    Penfield, IL 61862

    And email me your weight in weight by 7:30pm on Tuesday, March 3rd to [email protected]

    I will not share your weigh in weight with anyone unless you tell me it's okay.

    Then, on Wednesdays I'll send out a mass email stating who is in the lead and how much that person lost.

    This is just a reminder...

    THE BIGGEST LOSER begins this coming Tuesday. Those who are wanting to join the exercise group, 7:30 my house. Those not wanting to join the exercise group but wanting to get in on the weight loss challenge should have their $15 to me by Tuesday night.

    Lori - if you are wanting to do the exercise group, you can bring your daughter along - she can hang out with the little kids in the house or even work out with us in the garage if she wants to.

    I ordered shoes. :D I'm finishing up a really busy period this week and then I think I will have time. And then it will be warm enough to ride soon and that will be my #1 exercise.

    We also have work out equipment here at work--do you have a lot of people going to your house?

    I am kind of tempting to go jogging with you -- are you jogging around downtown Champaign? Can I wear a bag on my head? I don't want anyone to see me run. We used to have a lunchtime jogging group that left from my office, they were fast though. And that's probably a good idea, in this neighborhood.

    Sure can!

    Lori - I know we'll have at least 5 doing the exercise group.

    I don't run fast (I'm way too out of shape to run fast!) and I'm running around the park over by where I work at 4:00.

    Oh my god! I went to Boot Camp with a friend at the YMCA in Sandwich this morning and did that open my eyes to how out of shape I am! Today was the mostly running day (I suck at running) they do it at the middle school so each lap includes 4 flights of stairs. I'm going to be dying tomorrow...I think I need to get my workout routine back up and going before I can do it again...Now I have to ride all day :th_sleeping-smiley-015:
