I'm stealing a page out of the book of a fellow Mothering friend who started the 8-week weight-loss challenge (Thanks Milk!). I find it's always easier to lose weight when you've got healthy peer pressure keeping you honest! So, I didn't want to wait until the start of the next 8-week challenge in late May. I'm hoping there are enough of us to jump into our own 8-week challenge starting on Monday. Hope you'll join me, and thanks again to Milk for putting in all the work on this!
Commit to an 8-week weight loss challenge. You'll be assigned to a team, and your weight loss percentage will be measured on an individual and a team basis. The team with the highest loss percentage at the end of the 8 weeks will be the winner. This is a TEAM effort. If you lose, your team wins! Your weekly progress will be updated on the leader board for all to see each Monday.
You have to be willing to commit to the full 8 weeks beginning Monday, April 16, 2012.
You have to be willing to commit to exercising a minimum of 4 x 30 minute sessions per week - the type of exercise is up to you!!
You have to be willing to check in and update your progress and weight at least weekly (more often would be better).
You have to be willing to share your weight and height (starting on check-in day).
You may not join if losing 1lb/.5kg per week will put you in an underweight category according to your BMI (check here) at the end of the 8 weeks.
A thinner waistline and the opportunity to bask int he glory of the winning team!
