It’s time to mosey on over to your scales and take a gander at that there number. Did it go up a little, or did you manage to lose during the most eatiest week of the year? If you lost, then kiss my grits!! Congratulations! If you didn’t lose, don’t worry too much. Just put it behind you, (not on your behind) and look forward.

Fitness & Non-Fitness Challenges for the Week!

I want you to look at the calendar! Today is December 1st. Now don’t get all sweaty and panicky thinking about shopping days until Christmas and all that stuff. I want you to visualize yourself on December 31: lighter, happier, more in control. You’ll be stepping into a brand new year with a huge jump on your resolution to lose weight and get fit because you are participating in this challenge. Isn’t that an awesome feeling? Sure, this might not be your banner month for huge losses, but by simply being aware and thinking about your teammates, you’re bound to make better choices. You can do this!! For your non-fitness challenge, we want you to outline 3 things you’re going to do to stay on track this month. Add them to your weigh-in post, or post about them separately. Share them with your teammates, and keep each other honest!

For your Fitness challenge this week, we are going to continue with the minutes, but we’re going to encourage you, okay goad you into trying something new! Maybe Zumba? I mean, you know it looks fun, so stop being so self-conscious and get out there and try it! Lisa LOVES it!


This week we have a YEEE-HAW of a giveaway for you fine shrinkers! The folks at Takeya have ponied up some sweet glass water bottles for our giveaway this week. Yes, that means two people who check-in this week will randomly be selected to win!

These Takeya glass water bottles are nice! Melissa and I both received bottles to review, and I have to say that I’m pretty impressed. I was a little worried that it would be hazardous being glass and all, but it’s surrounded by a nice silicon cover that keeps it safe; and because it’s glass, you don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals from plastic bottles leaching into your water! Both the bottle and silicone cover are dishwasher safe, and the lid is so easy to screw on and off. Both of us love our Takeya water bottles, and two lucky winners will, too!

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

  1. Check-in on the weigh-in form and leave a link to your blog post in our Linky widget. You must do both for one entry!
  2. You can also check-in on the weigh-in form AND leave a comment telling us about your biggest non-scale victory this week!
  3. The members of the team who wins the Fitness challenge this week will also get extra entries!

Contest ends tonight at 11:59 p.m. PT, and we’ll randomly pick and announce 2 winners on tomorrow’s leaderboard post!

Good luck this week! Be sure to fill up your water bottle now!


Disclosure: Melissa and I both received a Takeya glass water bottle to test out, and they provided two bottles for us to give to you! Sweet! No money exchanged hands, and our opinions are 100% our own!
