The Summer of Weight Loss

Today I found a cool blog:

Mom vs. Marathon

Mom vs Marathon has posted a summer weight loss challenge called The Summer of Weight Loss.  To join, she asks that you send her an email with your name, your goal weight and your starting weight.

Each week, usually on a Wednesday, she'll post a challenge.  So far, we need to pick a weigh-in-day, post your starting weight (if you want) and your goal weight, measurements and your before picture on your own blog.

Since I just found this site today, I am a bit behind but I've emailed my intentions to join the challenge.  The 7/5 challenge is to try one new vegetable and one new fruit this week.  I'll have to catch up and hit the co-op or farmer's market and find something to try!  It's good to find things to post about.  I'm loving this challenge already, although I'm a little shy about posting actual numbers, but it's definitely a motivator. 

Each week she'll post the results of the weekly weigh in during her Wednesday challenge along with at link to your blog.  She asks that you email her your results by 9 a.m. PST every Wednesday.  

The challenge is from July 1, 2010 to Sept 22, 2010.
