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!
