Blog friend Mark and his nemesis Steve have dived into a very spirited
war contest. They are competing against each other to see which can lose the most weight. So far, from what I can tell from my seat in the peanut gallery, they are both struggling. Despite their best efforts, they are neck and neck (so to speak).
It may be helpful to both of them to mix up this competition a bit. Perhaps they could use a little more serious competition. Maybe if there were to be a third competitor, someone who could push them to a higher level, they would be more successful in reaching their goal.
Or, perhaps that third competitor would leave them far behind, licking their wounds (or the creamy insides of an oreo cookie or two…..).
Now I will admit that I have never met Steve. In fact, until this contest between Mark and him, I had never visited his blog. I have met Mark. I think I have a pretty good idea of the relative strengths of each of them. I am not choosing sides in their little competition.
In fact, I have decided to make it interesting, as my father would say.
Yes, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring. I am officially joining this little game.
Be prepared, gentlemen. You are in the big league now.
Mark and Steve claim to be preparing for world domination.
Really? That is your goal?
I have a REAL goal. A goal that will be certain to motivate me to win.
My daughter’s wedding is on August 10, 2013. And I plan to dance at that wedding. I am determined to lose the weight necessary to allow me to dance all night if the music is good.
With that goal in mind, I am jumping into their game and am determined to win.
I am not going to tell anyone what my starting weight is, and will only report my losses/gains. It’s my understanding that Mark and Steve are reporting this on an honor system weekly. I will follow that method as well. As a former Girl Scout, you can trust me to be honest. Really. Truly.
So, Boys——Game on!
They began on Feb. 11th. So I will make my first report: In the past week I have lost 4 pounds.
