A Pound For A Pound

While lamenting about my weight issues and all the related health issues I am dealing with to our conversations she mentioned a program from the Biggest Loser-- the Pound For Pound Challenge.

For every pound you pledge to lose, Pound for Pound will donate 10cents to Feeding America™ - enough to provide one pound of groceries to a local food bank. Report your final results between 4/1/09 and 5/5/09.

I finally took the plunge and signed up for Weight Watchers this AM. I pledged to lose 20 lbs between today and mid-May when I report my results to the Pound for Pound Challenge. I am going to miss my Venti Soy Chai Lattes from Starbuck's (they only go up to Grande size on the Weight Watchers program and even that is like a fifth of all the points I can have in a day - yikes). So not only is losing weight good for your health but you can help someone in need at the same time!! How cool is that?

Please let us know by leaving comment if you took the plunge -- help yourself get healthy and help others in need receive the food they need. We'll post a reminder here on our blog to go back to Pound for Pound and enter your final weight loss in April and May.
