Children's Miracle Network - Biggest Loser Contest

Hey all,

My work is doing a "Biggest Loser Contest" for the Children's Miracle Network, where each persons goal is to lose as many pounds in 8 weeks as possible. I'm looking for sponsors who will put up money *Per Pound* that I lose over this 8 week period.

Weigh in for me is on Tuesday April 15th, with a "Mid-weigh" Thursday May 15th, and a final weigh in on June 16th.

My personal goal is to do a modified Atkins diet with lots of walking (and hopefully moving into a new house). In order to not add weight during this 8 week period I will forgo weights and just stick to cardio (I build muscle to a certain point pretty easy). I expect to lose 4lbs a week for the first two weeks, then it will probably taper off to 2-3lbs a week for the remaining 6 weeks. So if people were to sponsor me for $1 a lb of weight loss and I stick to my goals, that would be ~$26 give or take a little depending on how well I burn off the weight.

All proceeds will go directly to the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) through my work, the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg IL.

If you have any questions, or would like to sponsor me in this endeavor, please PM or E-mail me @ [email protected]

I do appreciate any support you can offer me in this. It's totally a Win-Win for me as I've not done well with my weight loss so far, and this good cause is plenty reason for me to stick to it!

I will try to remember to send you some encouragement each day. I'm trying to shed a few pounds myself, so we can be weightloss buddies. ~Mandy

Every day? Um...OK.

Peanut may get jealous though.

But then again, she's sponsoring me her own way.

Peanut should support me sitting on the couch. It is a hell of a lot easier.
Rep to all involved.

Ok, Eric, here's todays words of wisdom. If you think you are hungry have a glass of water. If after a glass of water you still feel hungry then eat something. If you don't then you weren't really hungry to begin with, it was boredom or "head hunger" not a real need for food. ~Mandy

Thanks. That's a good tip. I do that now. I eat when I get stressed or bored. So I've been drinking a gallon of water a day. I think I have a bladder the size of a watermelon.

OK, Weigh in was today...with my work clothes on, I weighed in a 269! Cripes! They made me weigh in a second scale because they didn't believe that was correct. But unfortunately it is.

So yeah...who else wants to sponsor this whale?

$1 a pound, and my goal is about 25lbs in 8 weeks!
