Kwitchyerbellyakin “Biggest Loser” Challenge

I stepped on the scale today after a week of travel and a weekend of beer and food in the Northwoods, and I wasn’t pleased with the number staring back at me. I will have to fess up to Drew Sample on the Healthy Lifestyle Podcast this week about what I have and haven’t got done over the past week.

Fortunately, two things are aligning and going to push me (and hopefully you) to get moving forward on this weight loss journey and develop a healthy lifestyle. First is the weekly Healthy Lifestyle Podcast where Drew Sample and I keep each other accountable on our quest for having a healthier lifestyle.  The second is a new weight loss challenge!  The Kwitchyerbellyakin Fitness Challenge  is launching “Biggest Loser” Challenge starting Labor Day week. The annual New Year’s Fitness Challenge will come around again after the holidays on the first of 2017 (this challenge is different).

Rules and Details

Pool YMCA Ridgedale, Minnesota

The pool lanes are open; time to get stuff done!

You might be wondering how the challenge works.  The rules and details behind the Biggest Loser Challenge are listed below:

  1. Sign-up by reporting starting weight via email to administrator, David William at the following e-mail address: taylord3 AT csp DOT edu by Sunday, September 11, 2016 (body weights will never be shared, the only information that will be shared is the percentage weight loss per person every 2 weeks).
  2. Keep track of your own progress and report every other Monday on “Weigh-In Day.”  David will track percentage of weight loss.  
  3. The challenge will run from Tuesday, September 5th – Monday, November 21st (the Monday BEFORE Thanksgiving, which is great to know).

Question to consider…

Again, to sign-up for this challenge, you need to email: taylord3 AT csp DOT edu by Sunday, September 11, 2016.  In your e-mail you must include your starting weight with your e-mail.  It will be confidential (only Dave will see that information, and it will never be shared).

May the odds be in your favor (because I am going to win)!
