Weight Loss Challenge{s}

The girls at work and I have started a weight loss challenge! I am so excited about it, although I am starting at way too high of a number. The best way to go is down, and I get by with a little help from my friends. The basis of the challenge, is to lose the largest % of weight by the end of the year. That gives us five months to rock it.Seeing as we are all in sales, and we are all extremely competitive and motivated by money, that seemed the best option for prizes. SO each month, there will be a small prize of $20 to the winner. THEN at the end of the challenge, after that last week, the overall winner will become the champion, and get a $150 prize for new clothes for their hot bod! So exciting. 

This challenge comes with challenges, however. The summertime is the hardest time to lose weight, I feel. All I want to do is sit on my deck, eat yummies from the grill and drink TABs in the beautiful weather. WRONG. I also have reviewed my calendar, and face an evening at Fenway Park this coming weekend, along with a variety of other fun days that include eating and/or drinking, and will wreak havoc on my dieting strategy. Once we get through the summer, it's on to the holidays. Eek!! At least this will motivate us all not to get as tubby as Thomasina the Turkey at Thanksgiving, nor find ourselves too jolly during the most wonderful time of the year. No sugarplums will be dancing anywhere in my world this holiday season! 

That all being said, I am psyched. Good luck, chicks. Let the odds be ever in your favor. {or something}
