I’m joining in a weight loss challenge and thought I’d extend the invite to my Project Blissful readers as well.
Although I’ve already lost a significant amount of weight, I’ve still got several pounds to lose before I hit my ultimate goal weight–so I thought this might be a fun and motivating way to get moving.
Want to know more?
Here’s the information on the challenge, if you’d like to join me! If you do choose to join in, please leave me a comment below so we can connect and help support one another!
From event organizer Amanda Jezusko:
Rules to be eligible:
1- You must use at least 1 It Works product for the duration of the Biggest Loser Competition (12 weeks). My recommendation would be the Fat Fighters with Carb Inhibitors combined with Thermofit! If you are not currently a Loyal Customer or Distributor you can sign up by contacting the Distributor who invited you or you may choose to buy directly from them (but this will cost more). If you are already a Loyal Customer I will need you to forward me your order confirmations to verify you are using the product (distributors do not need to do this since they have to place orders every month!). NO other supplements will be allowed (ie. HCG, ephedrine, etc). This competition is to encourage healthy weight loss 🙂
2 – You must open an account with myfitnesspal.com. Please let me know your id so I can add you as a friend. This website will be used for you to log your food for the day. You will have an accountability partner who will be checking into your site to make sure you are filling out your food log (and to help you to think before you eat that unhealthy food item!!).
3 – You must check in with me to weigh in, at your doctor’s office, or at a gym. In addition to weighing in you will also need to have your waist measured (waist is considered at the belly button), hips (at the hip bones, to be most accurate), and abductors (right below the buttocks – both legs together). These measurements need to be sent to me by 1/15/2013 to be entered in the competition. If I am not doing the weigh in and measurements I will need that person’s name, phone number, and place of business to verify accuracy.
I am asking you to contribute a $20 entry fee to join. This will help cover the cost of the prize! If my list of Distributors grows past 15 the winnings will increase towards what I contribute. You are welcome to recruite your own Loyal Customers in this contest! For them to be eligible for the prize they need to forward me their order confirmation they receive to my email address: [email protected] (keeping them honest!)
Note: Distributors can participate also!
The winner is considered the person with the most percentage of weight loss. If there is a tie, it will be broken by the percentage of total inches lost. The final weigh in will take place between 4/15/2013 and 4/20/2013. Weigh ins must take place the same way you entered (see above).
Prize will be $300 cash.
I’ll be weighing in before Jan. 14 at Trendz Salon, which is close to where I live. You don’t have to live in the St. Louis area to compete, though–see rules above and contact the event organizer for additional information.
I’ll document my experiences here at Project Blissful, and I’ll invite you to come back and share your experiences as well.
So, let’s do this! Who’s in? Tell me in the comments section, below!
