February's Money Matchup

For the month of February, (and probably for the month of March) The family (the out of shape ones) is holding a contest to see who can lose the most weight. I've lost five pounds without really meaning too since last week. I don't know how, but if I find out, I'm doing it again. Everyone can have their own method, and choose how they want to go about losing the weight. There really aren't any rules. We're going to have weekly weigh-ins, and we're all going to get into shape! There's really no downside. Well, there is one. The winner gets $20 from everyone who participated. There are 5 people who are participating. That's $100! Big brother can't stand to lose any weight, so he isn't included in this. But, I think I've gotten this thing in the bag. When I'm home, I can choose to exersize however much I want. I'm home more than anyone, so really, I am at an advantage. And when I'm at school, all my classes are on the third floors, so I climb up four flights every day a couple of times a day. Yeah, its a pain, but it'll help me to get in shape. If I keep eating healthy and excersizing, then I'll have this thing in the bag.

Hello $100! I'm drinking alot of water too. I'm limiting my drink selection to water, water, water, so I'm cleaning out my system also. I'm also trying to get alot of fiber in what I eat. It helps to get fiber regularly.

So, cutting back on the bad stuff and moderating the good stuff will win me the prize anytime! This is going to be good.

Does that sound like I am selling something? 'Cause I'm not! It's free & I get 10 points if you sign up although the points aren't really worth anything, they're fun to accumulate.
