The Pink Loser

Hello all!

A friend of mine (Julie) and I are going to have a "Biggest Loser" contest starting January 5th. It will be for the length of 6 weeks. The stakes are high, as the loser has to watch the other person's children for 2 days & 1 night while the other couple get to go somewhere kid-free and fun!!

Please join me on my journey. I will be blogging daily about the challenges, struggles, and successes I have with my life change. I have decided that I am going to do a mixture of Weight Watchers, Body For Life, and some other ideas friends have given me.

Will you help me?? Will you be my encouragers??? Feel free to share your stories here or join me on my journey. This is exciting! I have 30-35 pounds that I want to lose in the next little bit and I know it is going to be hard. Bottom line is.... I can't do it alone!! I've started and stopped many times.

Thanks sooo much!! Wish me luck!

  2. Good Luck Hon!! I am going back on South Beach ( my doctor recommended it ) the 1st too so I will be struggling with you. I lost 44 lbs on it from March to July this year and kind of fell off after I quit working. I have kept all but 6 lbs off but it is time to go back on it as I have a loooong way to go yet. Best of luck to you!!

  4. You can do it! With your children you have a built in exercise regime anyway! LOL! What a great opportunity to get them involved in some sort of exercise program along with you! Plus you'll be eating healthier meals and be such a good role model for them too!

    You go girl!

  5. You can do it Robyn!! Keep in mind... a year from now you can be glad you started or you can wish that you had!

    I'm such a fan of BL. I can't wait to join the land of the living and start losing after my baby is born. I lost 40lbs last year and it felt amazing! I wish you the best and will be cheering you along! Go team Robyn!!!

  7. uh oh... I'm up against a whole cheering squad on your side Robyn!

    I may as well state my goals too... :)

    I'm around 175 (I'm guessing- I haven't weighed myself in a while). My goal is to loose down to at least 135 so that's 40 pounds.

  12. Robyn, Are you getting excited as the start day gets nearer. I am going through cook books to make up menus to use for are start day. I believe the Biggest Loser starts January 5th on TV. We are going to have Tuesday as our weigh in day. We will be with you every step of the way. There is a website where you can put your measurements and it will show you how you look. I will find it in my favorites and post it here. As you lose weight you change your measurements.
