The Bloggest Loser Contest

kris from HAnds, house, and heart full is hosting a weight loss challenge called "The bloggest loser"  This will be a twenty week challenge.  No one will be booted off thank goodness lol  weighing in will be every friday.  if you want to join click over to her blog and read more about the contest.  i copied the rules below to give you an idea of what is expected.  

<span class=

1) No one gets 'booted' off--I'm not the 'bootin' type

2) Weigh in once a week on Fridays...I would prefer a picture of your scale but if you're too shy to post it on your blog I will accept it via e-mail

3) If you enter contest I need to know your beginning weight--I will take your word for it but I need some kind of picture for proof--whether it be a picture of yourself or your scale. (I believe most people are honest when it counts--hopefully that's true!)

4) I will calculate everyone's % of weight lost each week and post who the 'Bloggest Loser' of the week is.

5) All weekly 'Bloggest Loser's' names will be placed into a hat for the 'consolation prize' drawing--winner of said prize will receive a $10 Wally World gift card at the end of the contest.

6) At the end of the contest I will calculate who lost the highest % of weight overall. This person will receive a $25 gift card to the store of their choice.

7) You must sign the Mr. Linky with a link to your blog in order to be eligible.

8) You must use the same scale each week for your picture...different scales will show different numbers after all

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
