SIGN UP NOW For The Biggest Loser Moms 2nd Contest


Okay everyone. We have a new contest, it's going even longer and it comes with it's own battle cry for which we can all thank Stimey (pictured on my left, your right. Only she isn't wearing an innertube under her blouse. I am. Ahem.). Given that improving grammar is not on my list of New Year resolutions, I am just going to ignore any issues with that first sentence and continue on. Again, I am defying grammatical protocol and ending a sentence in a preposition. Let me remind all y'all this isn't a grammar blog.

Which is a fabulous segue (and yes, this still is a blog where we will throw in gratuitous SAT words from time to time) into our 2nd Edition contest. The rules are the same as our first contest. The contest dates are from January 10th until April 10th. It just so happens that April 11th is my birthday, it's a coincidence people, not a dastardly plan for me to be able to eat copious amounts of cake and ice cream.

Whose in? Or who's in? Remember, no grammar police. Although we do acknowledge that some of you may not be comfy with announcing to your friends and family, "I'm doing The 2nd Biggest Loser Moms Fuck All Y'all Edition" so for you people, we suggest the acronym "F.A.Y.E." Sarah and I have even made it easier for you to win. We've gained about 10 pounds between the two of us already, although we like to think of it as bulking up for the winter. Spring will be here before we know it, so let's get going, let's shed the poundage together!

Sign up for The 2nd Biggest Loser Moms Contest (aka FAYE) right now!

Rules are simple. Because if they are complicated we'll just give up, drink beer and eat icecream.

Length of Contest: Begins January 13, 2010 Ends April 10, 2010

Entry fee: $10.00 per participant. Contest is open to anyone over the age of 18 who wants to participate. Entry fees will be kept in a PayPal account which will then be used as prize money for the two winners. All monies collected will be distributed to winners, no money will be kept by Sarah or Devra (unless of course we win the contest fair and square.)

Liability: None for us. You participate of your own free will, medical clearance is your responsibility. Basically we're holding the contest, but participation is at your own risk. Think of this declaration as being similar to the sign you see in restaurants stating they aren't responsible for any articles of clothing left at the establishment.

Weigh-in: Weekly. Weigh yourself on the same scale at the same time of day, wearing the same clothes for each weekly weigh-in. Loss will be measured in pounds. Once everyone is signed up, we will create a Google Doc contestants can access and enter our weekly weight.

Awarding of Prizes: The week of April 10th when the contest officially ends. Two prizes will be awarded, with first prize going to the person who has the highest percentage of weight loss, and second prize to the next highest percentage of weight loss.

* The contest is named for our site "Loser Moms" there is no requirement that participants be moms. All are welcome!

Our PayPal button is tempermental, if you can't access the page, please send payment to LoserMoms@Gmail.com via PayPal.

This is such a good idea.

Goddess in Progress said...

I'd be all over it, except I'm having issues with the Paypal button. Is there an email address I can use to directly submit my entry?

Second place was OK last time, but this time I'm gonna WIN!

Fuck all y'all!

(I say that with love, of course.)

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

We know the button doesn't work right, but we are working on it.

Mariana @ Riding With No Hands said...

I'm in! Lost 20 lbs in '09. Need to double that loss this year.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

The button is fixed and I anted up.

I'm in bitches.

Devra said...

I'm in too!

I say this with only love in my heart, Fuck All Y'all!

Bring it!

Natalie S said...

All right. I'm in. I have lost zero weight (except to yo-yo a bit) and I am exactly where I was in October.

My goal this time is not only to keep working out and loosing weight, but to right two articles. One about fitting in (scheduling) exercise, and one about crossfit. Good luck everyone!

Stimey said...

My sisters, Fuck All Y'all. I am really doing it this time.

(Also, Devra, do you see that behind the box on your head that I'm giving you bunny ears?)

Shannon Entin said...

Glad I found this contest. I'm gonna crush you all. This is my year. Fuck yeah.

J said...

This is a great idea. Sign me up.

Devra said...

Stimey,
I thought you were trying to make me look taller. Bunny ears give me a little height.

Velma said...

Fuck Y'all. I'm in, too. I've been planning to buckle down and I think it'll be easier with chicks I think are cool.

WhyMommy said...

Durn it, ladies, I had resolved not to resolve to lose weight this year. But I can't resist some of mah favorite bloggers (I just can't curse in print. Blame my mother. My English teacher mother.).

I'm in. Again.

I wish it weren't so hard to convince myself that it's ok to spend the time exercising ... any tips?

JavaMom said...

Count me in!

jodifur said...

I want to sign up, but I don't understand how to calculate the percentage. I'm not kidding.

Wife and Mommy said...

Okay. I'm in. I'm totally frightened, but I'm in.

Devra said...

Jodi,
We decided to base the winners on who loses the most pounds. I hate math too.

I just updated the post to reflect the change in how we are measuring this time.

Sorry for the confusion!

jackieblue said...

Ok, I am IN! And I am full of annoying questions.
1. How do we pay you? Do I click that button that reads "donate?"
2. Do we e-mail our weekly weigh-in to someone mathematically inclined (i.e. not me) who announces who is in the lead for the week, etc?

I will limit my first set of annoying questions to two. The contest is still young.

p.s. You know you have let yourself get fat when you mention this contest to DH and he says "Oh, yeah, you should do that, you've been talking about getting into shape."

Jill Asher said...

I want in!!! I need to get motivated and lose some poundage! COUNT ME IN from the west coast!

Natalie S said...

whymommy... tips on how to spend the time exercising over anything else you could do, or how to actually put the time in b/c after fifteen minutes on the elliptical you are bored?

do it jodi.. do it...

Devra said...

We're having a problem with our PayPal button. We're working on it.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

AnnetteK said...

Fuck All Y'All, I'm in. And I'd really like to not GAIN weight this time around.

Sue @ Laundry for Six said...

I'm in. And this time I'm going to win. So fuck ya'll!

I am just outside of that picture, talking to the lovely Jill in the background, I think! I look so thin!

Devra said...

the PayPal button has been fixed!

Thank you goes to Laurel at www.momsminivan.com for her mad computer hacking skillz!

Road Trip Mom said...

Good Luck Bitches!!! I am pulling for everyone. You can do it!!

Velma said...

I still can't get the PayPal button to work - can you post the e-mail we can send our fee to?

Devra said...

If the PayPal button isn't working, you can send payment to LoserMoms@Gmail.com

Please let us know if you run into any problems.

Road Trip Mom said...

At long last, the PayPal button seems to be working. Blogger keeps doing odd things with the code when Devra touches it. I think I have finally knocked her in line.

If it still won't work, use the email address posted above, or knock her around yourself. It might burn a lot a lot of calories, but not enough to count as a cardio workout. Sarah, don't make me slap you around too.

Happy losing everyone! --Laurel

Selfish Mom said...

A chance to win money that seems to encourage gratuitous swearing? Fuck yeah, I'm in.

And thanks for starting the contest at the END of CES. I'll be in the land of buffets. I can put on a few extra pounds and then lose them. Yeah, I'm not above cheating that way.

@cloverjenn said...

I'm in and paid. I lost 25 pounds in 2009, so I don't know how much more I can get off, but I'm going to do my best to get off the holiday weight plus a few more. How much did the winner lose last time?

I need a little friendly competition and monetary incentive to stay on track!

Mistress Blaze said...

Awwright Bitches! The Fuck All Y'all Edition. I love it.

Fuck you very much, my fat is about to leave the building (as sexy as it may be, I'm not opposed to telling it to piss off).

May you live as long as you want to, and want to as long as you live.

Kristabella said...

As long as it isn't for moms only, I'm in!

Devra said...

Contest is open to all, maternal status is not required.

jackieblue said...

Yipee, button works. I got snowshoes for Chanumas and I'm not afraid to use them. Lazy perhaps, afraid never. It's on.

Heidi said...

Hello from Alaska! I just donated so I'm in!!! Fuck all of you! I'm going to win!!!

Heidi

Angie said...

Lawyer Mama said...

Karen Putz DeafMom said...
