An easy weight loss incentive everyone should know for 2012

Mega Weight Chart

In my last post, I mentioned a weight loss contest that I’ve recently got into. All you need is to email a few friends who want to lose a bit of weight – all put in a bit of money and a start and finish date. Whoever loses the largest percentage of weight, wins.

Our finish date is in two months. We all threw in £10 each and had to weigh ourselves in Boots chemist, Friday before last and put our results (and tenner) in an envelope to give to one nominated girl.There’s give of us and although I’m sure you can do the maths, I’ll make it clear that it’s £50 jackpot. So far, we have one girl that has lost a lot of weight but it’s clear she will burn out soon and by the sounds of it everyone else is just being good (e.g. no chocolate, no burgers etc.,).

Some reasons why I want to quit drinking?

  • Alcohol is linked to cancer – my mum and aunt died of breast cancer; my grandma survived breast cancer; and my Grandpa died of brain cancer.
  • I’m grossly overweight by three or four stone and never have enough energy (week by week) to go anything about it.
  • When I’m hungover I crave junk food and eat more than usual.
  • I can make lose hours of memory, waking up filled with pangs of guilt and shame but not knowing why.
  • Alcohol causes mood swings, alters behaviour and weakens inhibitions – this has caused many dramas in my life and affected my relationships with family and friends.
  • Booze is a powerful substance and like anything with such force, should be respected. I don’t think many people in my culture really get that about alcohol.
  • Now that I’m in my early thirties, I want to start a family and have a successful career as a writer and eventually a primary school teacher. These things will never occur while I keep letting my drinking hold me back and leave me as a lethargic, lazy mess.
