Happy Holidays

As we all know, the holidays are already upon us. Hopefully, those holiday pounds are not yet upon us! In need of a new challenge, I propose having a Biggest Winner Challenge throughout the holiday season. It would happen something like this. A little spin off of The Biggest Loser with a lot of changes. Contestants would be able to earn points through weight loss, exercise, healthy eating, promoting health, and being happy. We would all toss $10 into the pot and at the end of the challenge, winner would take all. The challenge would run from Halloween night* until New Years Day. I know it's a long time, but what else is going to get us through these holidays? We'd also have plenty of time to weed out the weak and see who the Biggest Winner really is!

If you're interested please comment. If we have enough interest, WE'LL GO FOR IT!

*Starting line is being extended to gather more interest. Hopefully we'll start the 10th of November at the latest. Please tell you friends and family who might be interested in joining. I will post a list of Health Habits that will earn points in the next couple of days.

I will do this challenge for sure. I may not be losing weight though training for a marathon and all. Speaking of which betina told me to ask you all about that. The pounds come off after right? Is it muscle weight or what?

hmmm tempting, tempting, but I'm weak. I really like chocolate. BUT if we get points for exercising and stuff I might be in! My philosophy is to exercise enough that I don't get fat... because I eat all the time. Maybe not the most sound logic, but it's better than no exercise at all :)

Count me in! I will put my $10 bucks in the mail this week. However, I will start tomorrow because I am in the depths of despair from gaining 8 lbs in the last 2 months (I worked full-time at a desk job and it is really showing on my butt! even tho' I jumped my heart out!) MOM

I love a challenge! I did one after Riley was born and it was great. Call me if you need some ideas for points etc.With that challenge we had a yahoo group to share updates etc. it might be helpful for this too.
ps I've posted my online parenting class at my blog

Count me in. I would love to participate in this challenge!! Just reading your last few have moved me to change several of my bad habits. I have stopped drinking all soda and am jumping rope everyday. I think this would be extremely helpful thru the holidays.

I am in, I can't get over the jump rope contest so I need to redeem myself!
