Skinny Santa Challenge?

Maybe there is already something like this going around, but I thought of it when I was church (I wasn't chasing my little ones around and actually had time to sit and listen and think). I really really want to kick my butt into gear and get gorgeous-ed up for the holidays! I know a challenge would help keep me motivated especially through that darn Thanksgiving week that is always so tricky for a girl who loves to eat!!

I know we have lots of things going on.... Secret Santa's, secret bandits, work stuff, family stuff, but hear me out and  see what you think.
Here is how it would go down:

- We would start the competition this Friday.
- You would post your Skinny Santa Weigh In. Include your goal too for good measure!
- Every Friday until Dec 23rd (6 weeks to lose weight) you would post and email me your Current Weight and
- On December 23rd everyone would email me their starting weight and ending weight and I will calculate % loss
- Whoever has the best change % loss will win!

And what will the winner get? 

Everyone who participates will send the winner a $10 gift card to the winner's fav place(s) to shop. Week 1, everyone will include 5 places they love to shop on their post, and then we will have the winner write a winner's post reminding us what places they love to shop!

If we can get 10 people to participate, we will do email me at or leave a comment.

I could certainly go for $100 worth of gift cards!!!! Anyone else???

Please post this on your blogs since many of you have much bigger fan clubs than lil ol me!


  1. I am up for a challenge. Why not.

  2. Oh, we need a button to post on our blogs if we are participating!!!!!!

  3. I think this is an awesome idea! And you will probably have a lot of people who want to join. I will have to decline, however. Every time i join a public challenge I set myself up to fail and end up heavier than when i start! I will try to remember tomorrow though and link to your post!

  4. I am in.....cant wait to get started. This will be my first challenge and I love the button.
