If I remember correctly (I'm getting old so I might be forgetful) earlier this year was there a Million Pound Challenge team from WI Geocahing? I recieved an email today stating that January 1 will be a start of a new million pound challenge. I did this by myself but would LOVE to be part of a team of people from Wisconsin Geocaching.
If anyone doesnt not know what the Million Pound Challenge is here is a link for it:


http://www.princetonclub.net/mpc/

Basically for every pound we lose they donate 10 pounds of food to Second Harvest food banks. If anyone would like to join me let me know by posting here or emailing me thru the Wisconsin Geocaching website. I will even be the leader if anyone wants to join the team. Just think...... most everyone say they want to lose weight as a New Year's resolution so why not help others in need????

I'm thinking about it - when is your deadline for joining your team? I really don't have much weight to loose - maybe 5 pounds. I lost 60 pounds (Weight Watchers) since late 2007 and feel great. I need to read the information on the program some more before making the final decision...

I am planning on signing up the team on December 30th but you can join after the team has been formed. The challenge starts January 1 2012. I am on weight watchers also since July 2010 & have lost 70#. My orthopedic doctor told me to lose another 40# before my hip replacement.....he wanted it gone by this past October.....didnt happen. So this will give me (i hope) the extra push I need to lose the 40#. 1 pound lost = 10 pounds food donated so EVERY little pound adds up.

I might be interested, I will get back to you.

BTW, I find your avatar very amusing considering the conversation. Laughing

Nope. Just plan for the extra calories that day, VG.

I did this last year, and it went from January to May, I think. It's all on the honor system. You give them your starting weight, and each week you log in at about the same time to record a new weight. Sometimes I was up, sometimes down. No one online sees your weight. I think I lost maybe 15 pounds during this time, but I had to kick it into high gear towards the end. The weather was nicer by then to do more stuff outside.

Put me on the list, Becky.

I need to drop some weight too, and hopefully this will be additional motivation to get me going. Count me in.
