So, at work we are doing the Biggest Loser along with the TV show. It will last about three months. Some of us have formed teams with someone else. The team that wins with the most lost weight gets 60% of the total amount of money (Each person contributes $10. So far we have about 11 people participating). That mean individually we would 30%. Then if we don't win the team contest, the highest individual gets 25% of what's left and the next highest person gets 15%. It's all good.
Our contest started on Tuesday. That night I was pretty sure I didn't want to participate in the contest because it's difficult to eat everything I want when I'm dieting. Go figure. The second night I was in the same sinking boat. Today so far I've got a fairly positive attitude...if I can just stay out of the stinking sinking boat.
Earlier my diet partner said she thought we should set a goal for the three months. We each are going to try to lose 25 pounds during that time period. That's a lot, but it can be done. If we lose a total of 50 pounds, we will have lost a small person between us. (Actually, it makes me feel a little sad to lose a small person, but it's not exactly murder! But it might kill us.)
I don't ask people to pray for me, but if you do, it might be good. But don't say too much to me about the diet, because I don't like to have people really minding my business. You could say, "How's the weather?" It will be code for asking about the diet. If I say, "Good," you'll know I'm doing pretty well. If I say, "I'm under the weather," you will know that things are going so-so.
If you don't want to ask me at all, that's all good.
