Hey Ladies!

Devra and I are very excited that so many of you are joining us in our first "Biggest Loser Mom"* contest.

It looks like now we have about 10 people participating and if (unlike Devra) you can do simple math in your head (I tease her because I love her) you realize that if we all pitch in $10 the pot will me $100.

(Not to be confused with $100 worth of pot, which doesn't help anybody lose weight.)**

We would now like to extend the invitation to those of you playing along at home to also guest post about what you are doing to lose the weight. I think we could all use some good ideas and extra motivation.

And a little trash talking never hurt anybody.

Oh! One more thing! We need a button or banner for our contest. If any of you have mad skills and the inclination you will earn the people's ovation, fame forever*** and a special bonus ad for your blog either here or on SATGS (or both if I can figure it out).

We only have six more days of eating and beer, so let's not waste any more time talking.



* This is in to way restricted to Moms, the contest name is in reference to the name of the website. You don't even have to be a woman. We don't discriminate here.

** So I've heard. Hi Mom!

*** Nothing like a little Food Network humor for all of us that need to lose a few pounds.

I read it wrong the first time. Thought you were offering "the people's ovulation."

I thought it was an odd offer, but thought if you wanted to offer that, go ahead, but like Math in my head, I won't be able to figure out how you'd be doing that.

I have 10 fingers. This helps a lot when there are 10 people. If we get more joining us, thankfully I have toes too.

I never promise other people's ovulation.

I can't even handle my OWN ovulation (see: twins)

I'm going to take a pass on that whole ovulation thing since, like Sarah, I have some overachieving issues with that one. :-)

Looking forward to the challenge! I'm doing WW and the EA Sports 30 Day Challenge, possibly to be followed by the Jillian Michaels Shred or maybe (gasp!) a return to the gym. That is, if my kids will hang out in the child care room without completely freaking out.

Visiting from Goddess in Progress... Are you taking more Losers? Well, I hope to be a Loser, anyway. I'll try following the Paypal link and see where that gets me.

Devra said...

We are accepting losers until Aug 31. then we launch group losing on the 1st!

I was not aware that this involved giving up both eating and beer, which seems a little harsh to me on both counts. Maybe eating is doable.

How does one guest post on your site? I have all kinds of thoughts about this weight and fitness thing, oh yes I do.
