Ok... so this is my first challenge!

Ok... now that the first 50 lbs. are gone forever, I'm ready to send the next 50 packing. Lately, so much has been going on, I am struggling to stay focused and keep my momentum going. I am still abstaining from the sugar and caffeine, but am not journaling, and definitely not exercising... so after watching a success story on Joy Fit Club where a woman lost 130 lbs by walking, my friend and I came up with this idea!

Let's walk our way to weight loss! I know I need a kick in the butt... but don't we all? In order to help us meet our weight loss goals this summer, I am challenging all of my friends to compete with me to see who can walk the most minutes between June 4 and August 3. That's 60 days whole days! The winner gets a $50 SuperCertificate from www.giftcertificates.com, that can be exchanged for gift cards from hundreds of places.

At http://www.introplay.com/, I have signed up for a league, where all of my friends and blog followers can log in their minutes of walking. You can also log in other types of exercise, but for this challenge we are only counting the minutes you walk each day (just so everyone is on the same page). I sent an invite to everyone who I have an email address for, but all you have to do is go to the sight to sign up. The league is called "Hollie's Hottie's", because I know we all want to be hot by the end of the summer, right!?!? I think this link will also take you there...

Sign-ups will go until June 4. The site is really easy to use, and you can actually log lots of different exercises and statistics with it. I don't know about you, but I like graphs, lol! I really think this is going to be a FUN challenge, so help me spread the word! Who DOES NOT want a $50 gift card, right? And we are all getting healthy and HOT in the process!

C'mon - Let's do this! Mark your calendars for JUNE 4!

I love a good competition. I am very competitive. What got me into Herbalife was a weight loss challenge. I lost 30lbs in 4 months during the challenge. Good luck on the challenge!!

I am with you ! I am not a competitive person, but I find that getting involved in these challenges brings a sense of community and helps me to take on a fresh attitude.
