If you have read my blog before you know at least a little bit about the 12 week challenge that started this whole thing back in January, and you may also know that this week, sadly, is the final weigh in ... sort of*.
As surprising as it is I am actually a bit sad that it's going to be over, or I would be, if I hadn't already decided to start another one immediately. This next challenge is going to be bigger, better, and all around more challenge-tastic! By that I mean we have at least four new contestants, the weather is a shit ton nicer so people will definitely be more motivated, AAAAAAANNNNNDDD it has been brought to my attention that it might be nice to start an online challenge (thank you Sarah over at http://fatsosarah.blogspot.com/) and I definitely agree. What I have decided to do is to combine the two challenges, the online and the real life people can all compete against each other. Now here's where it gets a bit tricky because of the cash prize and all that. I obviously would never expect anyone out there in bloggy bloggy land to send us a check ($20 entrance fee plus $1 for every weigh in you skip, and pound you gain), so what I'm going to do is put together some sort of prize package for the winner of the online challenge. One challenge, two winners.... Get it? It makes sense to me, but that's not really saying too much.
The whole point really is that this sort of friendly (mostly) competition is a great motivator. Feeling like there are other people in the same situation with the same goals and struggles as you makes it all just a little bit easier.
So we have a couple of weeks until the next challenge starts, right now what you can do if you are interested in participating you should send me an email, or just add your name in the comments here and I will know to keep you updated on what's going on.
