Three Times A Charm

Hello Everyone,
I just registered for the 2009 Niagara Falls International Marathon! I will be doing the 1/2 Marathon Walk. I am going to do it. I regret not doing it in 2008 but have not given up!
Take Care

Happy Holidays

Okay, I continue to be a bad, bad blogger! I have fallen off the wagon with my weight loss efforts and apologize to the taking if off together group.

I do wish everyone a happy holidays. Here is a great video I saw on YouTube. If you love the old Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire type movies, you will enjoy this holiday remix.

I've been a bad, bad blogger!!!!

Hello Everyone,
I am so sorry - I have had so much going on with work and my life. I have not posted in quite some time and really have been out of the loop. I do keep up with how the group is doing with weight loss - everyone has been doing an amazing job. Here are the posts for this week (Week 20!)

The prize this week is sponsered by Chris. She is offering two beautiful Christmas mugs and a $10 Chevron Gift Card for the prize for this week! WOW! What a great prize. Makes me wish I had lost this week. If you'd like to sponser a prize, let me know! We are currently out of prizes!


The names of this week's "losers" were dropped into a coffee cup and this week's WINNER is Christy!

Congrats to Tina for being this week's biggest loser of pounds!! She lost an amazing 5.2 pounds. I wonder if she is willing to loan out her personal trainer. Be sure to cruise over to her blog and congratulate her!

This week's progress


Everyone Kicked butt!

Last week we announced a contest where everyone who reported a LOSS had their name added to a drawing for a lot of 100 Mary Kay samples! The motivation worked! Nearly everyone reported a loss this week. So we will have the same contest this week. Just remember that maintaining doesn't count, sorry!

The names of this week's "losers" were dropped into a coffee cup and this week's WINNER is Ciara!

And check it out! We had an over all loss again this week! Congrats to Cheryl for being this week's biggest loser of 4 pounds!! Be sure to cruise over to her blog and congratulate her!
