Fearless Fitness Friday: The Great Weight Loss Wager
TGIF, Shopaholics! I hope you have an exciting (or maybe relaxing!) weekend planned. Today I'm having lunch with friends down from ATL; off to Tuscaloosa tomorrow for the Alabama - Arkansas showdown and then plan to relax on Sunday!
There is nothing that motivates me more than a good bet. My Father also loves a wager, especially one he thinks he can win. (I suppose I got that honest!)
My poor Father - he doesn't know what hit him...he actually bet me an undisclosed sum of $$$ that he could lose more weight than me before Thanksgiving. I told him "get prepared to pay up"! :-)
So here is the deal - we weighed in last week. That was painful as no one else knows my weight. Not my DH, not my BFF(s), not my sister. (Well maybe my doctor but only because I have no choice at the doctors office.)
We weigh in again on Thanksgiving Eve. (smart, huh?). The person who loses the highest percentage (%) of body weight, wins. Period. Not the total pounds, as he weighs a whole lot more than me and that wouldn't be fair.
Wish me luck, I'm always motivated and perform best when money is on the table. And I want a new flat screen tv that wasn't funded from my own bank account. :-)
What motivates you?
