Today work announced that they’re running a “biggest loser” kind of contest. Everyone throws in $20, there are weekly weigh-ins and the top three people who have lost the largest percentage of body weight on April 6 win a percentage of the money. The rest goes to the local food shelf. I think I’m going to enter. Not that I have any illusions of winning – I’m only looking to lose about 10%, but when I lost weight on Weight Watchers a few years ago, I think some of what worked for me was having weekly weigh-ins where someone else was watching, and the fact that I had money invested in it. I don’t want this to turn into a weight loss blog, but I do plan on posting weigh-in numbers because I want the extra accountability, and public shame is a strong motivator for me, oh, and the support. I want support, too.
I also signed up for an evening yoga class with a coworker. Yay yoga! Oh, and we’re (ok, mostly this is all Chris) experimenting with our new crock pot to have warm, home-made dinners. So far we’ve had mulligatawny and a Caribbean pepper pot soup, both of which were really good, and decently healthy, and made from non-prepackaged food. Yay soup!
