Tonight Jason and I entered into a weight contest. I've never done this before and the challenge is something I'm looking foward to.
Basically it's this:
We both decided that we have around 10 pounds each we could loose. For my height, according to several charts on several websites I checked out, they all say I could be as much as 25 pounds less to still be in healthy range. Well I don't agree that I need to loose 25 pounds, but I definately agree that I could loose 10. I'm not happy with my current weight of 144 so I'm on a mission to eat better and get fitter.
Jason also decided that he has a good 10 pounds to loose.
We both understand it's not about the number, but we also both realize that lately we have been dipping into the treats a little too often and not using all healthy habits.
For these reasons and more we are in a contest. For the next 7 weeks (from now until he goes to his brother's wedding in Utah)we will both cut way down on the treats, not eat out and up our exercise. We will use these healthier habits to see if we can loose at least 10 pounds in 7 weeks.
Whoever looses the most by our goal date of October 20th, the Monday before the wedding will win the item of their choice. My item is silly. For me, if I win, I want Jason to clean the tub, super clean, fill it with wonderful bubble bath stuff, I will then get a long quiet bubble bath and afterwards get a pedicure done by him complete with him painting my toenails.
Jason has not picked his item of choice yet. Stay tuned to find out what he picks, but it won't really matter since I'm going to win!
