Putting it out there.
11lbs, for $11 in 2011. Everyone who participates, chips in $11 into a pot. The goal is the first person to loose 11lbs and keep it off for 2 weeks, wins the pot. Now, there are a few rules.
1. No extreme dieting. I consider medifast, atkins, etc, extreme diets. I'm looking for friends who are trying to make healthy, well balanced choices with thier food, including all food groups and a normal range of calorie intake.
2. Weekly weigh in on Mondays. You don't have to post your weight, but you do have to post your weight lost (or gained if needed over the weeks to come). I am going to suck it up and post my actual weight on Monday (gulp), and I encourage you to do the same...no judgement. I'm providing a linky button at the bottom of this post for our 11-$11-11 crew, and you can post your check in on your own blog, and then add the link to the bottom of your own post, and it should link you up here for our group to follow.
3. It's an HONOR SYSTEM.
1-I'm going to set up a paypal account, just for this. (link on the right to chip in) You'll need to trust me with your $11...and I PROMISE, I'm not going spend it on some new running shoes :) As soon as our winner hits their goal and keeps it off for two weeks, I'll send the big pot o' cash to them via paypal.
2-Since it's all by cyber accountability, there's no way other than honesty to keep it real. PLEASE don't let your inner competitor get the best of you and cheat. We have no way of knowing, but please be honest about your weight loss. Otherwise, when you spend your load of cash winnings, you'll be racked with guilt everytime you wear your new pair of skinny jeans you bought with the money :)
We start Monday with our first weigh in!! If you're in, email me at 11lbsfor11in2011 at gmail dot com and I'll be sure to include you in the reminder emails to link up! You can also make a blogpost about it, and link up here to let me know you're in.
