Ok, so I'm a part of this magazine called The Edge. It's a local magazine that I help create each month with 2 other Super Moms named Michelle and Christine. We are busy, creative, talented and beautiful women who are always on the run, but we are it also fat. So, I came up with a plan to help us lose weight and hopefully it will inspire many others in our community to do the same. I hope this will be the start of something HUGE.
Here are the sketchy details. Basically, this will be a "Biggest Loser" type of contest between Michelle, Christine, and myself. We will incorporate personaly trainers, dieticians, doctors and a whole slew of personal supporters and folks who will help us in our quest. We will take before pics and we will pretty much lay it alllll out there on the pages of our magazine each month and report our daily progress on our blogs.
This also means getting a BMI drawn up, weight taken, pics posted...the whole works. EEEEKK! But, we're going for it. It'll be a great, healthy journey and next year, there will be 3 different people in our contest.
We also want the general public to join us. Schedule a check up with your doctor, chart your starting weight and make sure your doctor approves your weight loss plan. Snap a before pic and then get healthy! If you want to blog about, set up a blog here at blogspot.com and we'll link to it. Send us your progress updates as well. Don't forget to include your tips, tricks, complaints, and worries. We'll help support each other! At the end of 6 months, when Michelle, Christine and I end our contest, we will determine a winner amongst our readers who participate.
This will be an adventure! Hopefully a healthy one and a fun one. Stay tuned!
