Healthy Competition

Ben and I have started our own "Biggest Loser" competition. There's nothing like a little healthy competition to get me motivated. The worst thing about it is that I had to tell him my if that ain't trust then I don't know what is.

Each week we will weigh in and the one who has lost the smallest percentage of body weight has coffee week. What is coffee week you ask? Well...Ben and I both hate making coffee so we each take turns making coffee every other week, which is what we call coffee week. Anyway we are slap dab in the middle of my coffee week so I'll be darned if I have coffee week back to back. We still aren't sure what the deadline is or what the final prize will be. We are just taking it week to week for now.

Why am I posting this on my blog you wonder?

1. For motivation

2. For accountability

3. For support

I hate losing and I am a sore loser! Most likely I will post if I am the winner for the week, so I can rub it in his face. It is not very likely that I will post if I'm not the winner. Then ,of course, everyone will know that I am indeed the loser. It's my blog and I can brag if I want to! If he wants to brag he can start his own blog.

Just in case, by chance I happen to lose one week I'm going to go ahead and post my excuses now.
1. Ben will starve himself to beat me. If I tried this method I would end up eating a whole pan of brownies.

2. Men lose weight easier than women.

3. He just got lucky.

With that being said ....It is on like donkey kong!


  1. I too HATE making coffee every morning. and I use a French press again and I have to clean out the grounds. The drudgery. Good luck!

  2. I LOVE this idea! However, we'd have to come up with something besides "coffee week," because Jesse is the all-time champ coffee maker (he uses a food scale to measure the grams for the perfect pot) and I cannot be trusted with this duty! We've been saying we need to get busy losing some weight...maybe we'll join in! (I don't know if I've got the guts to blog about it though!)

  3. Ben said Jesse is known worldwide for his coffee making abilities. I'm intrigued.
