Work Weight Loss Challange

I had gone out to lunch with a few of the girls that I work with the other day, and we got to talking about losing weight and our resolutions for the new year. I had mentioned to them that I was going to try to lessen and then give up soda as one of my resolutions, and that I wanted to start walking on my lunch breaks (its honestly not safe for me to walk by myself before or after work, and I'm not really able to take the kiddos with me on a power walk, so my lunch breaks are my best option).

So we got to talking and decided to start a weight loss challenge for all the girls in my office who were interested. It would be a period of 3 months ( so January 3rd till the end of March), and everyone would chip in a dollar a week (a total of $12 by the end). We could decide how we want to lose the weight (i.e. we can set our own programs to whatever suits us the best), and at the end of 3 months, we'd all weigh in again and whoever lost the largest percentage of weight wins the money pot!

I'm super excited about it, because this way we can all motivate each other, and we're all working towards a common goal. Even if I don't win, I'll still win because I've lost weight!

I didn't do my walk today because Mike came to have lunch with me (today is his last vacation day off, so we took advantage of him being close :D), but I start tomorrow, and will be doing some stretching and exercising tonight to get ready.

And who knows, maybe I'll make myself a pair of legwarmers :D
