Last night was the first weigh in day for the new round of the Biggest Loser for the husbands of the women of Momstown Aurora/Newmarket. We had 8 participants, 9 if you want to include me however I am not eligible to win but I could sure use the competition right now. It was a little odd, men are not usually that great at gathering with strangers but I think in the spirit of what we are trying to do it went OK. I hope that they take the opportunity to use my experience and guidance to get some great results for themselves. It’s a 3 month journey, the weigh in officially is only once a month but we are sharing weekly weights to keep tabs on the group’s progress and as an added bonus the women of the group are also participating in their own version of the Biggest Loser. This way, we are treating households, not just individuals. I think that makes us superherolike, even.
For me, this is an opportunity to get off the 5 lbs that have creeped on and maybe push on towards something epic, but it’s going to take a little more dedication than I have been showing the last few months. I think I am up for it. Role model me!
