Shed it & Share it

Tuesdays have become my favorite day, because that means I get to watch The Biggest Loser!

I am happy to see that they are doing things to challenge America to lose weight all while giving back. I have been moved to pledge to the Pound for Pound Challenge.

I was happy to say I ended 2009 15 lbs lighter but had a bigger goal in mind. I am pledging to you that I will lose 25lbs in 2010. I think this is a reasonable goal and I know I have what it takes to do it.

I would also like to pledge that I will personally donate the amount of food in pounds that I lose, to my local foodbank. So I lose 25 lbs, I will donate 25 lbs of food to the Idaho Foodbank as my way of personally shedding this weight and giving it a purpose.

Let me know if you are interesting in joining me in this pledge! I think it would be inspiring to start our own pound for pound challenge. So Shed it & Share it!

The Biggest Loser has touched the hearts of millions. I have been a fan for about 4 seasons now. I realize the show has changed a bit over the past few seasons and has become a lot more dramatic and has pushed people to their breaking points. But I sort of wish I had this pressure on me to do the same. If I had Jillian hiked up on top of the treadmill staring down on me telling me to RUN FOR MY LIFE! I know I would get it done without question.

This show has also showed me that with a lot of hard work and determination your goals can be accomplished. I am not agreeing necessarily with all the methods of the Biggest Loser, I can’t imagine they are always healthy and proper. But the underlining message is that “You can do anything you put mind to”.

I would like to live my fitness life with intensity & purpose. I took last year to warm my body up to the idea of doing physical fitness. I don’t think I have really pushed myself to the limits in fear of hurting myself or burning out. But I have hit a point where it’s time. It’s time to kick it into full gear!

So thank you for following me as I make my way to becoming fit and into an official marathon runner. I will tell you now that I am going to run for my life! 🙂
