    Where the path takes me
    Two of my friends want to lose weight in the same time frame I do.. SO, we're all contributing 20.00 to a pool. We're sharing our weights once a week, and then at the event we're all attending, we'll be doing an official weigh in :). Whomever has lost the most weight, gets the pool of cash! :dance:

    Only problem is I'm about 40# less than they are, with around the same goal, so they'll have an easier time losing than I will. But hey, all's fair :).

    This could be a fun thing to do online too, though obviously not for cash. Kind of a Biggest loser competition :).

    We did this on the soapmaking forum I belong to last year. But instead of who got closest to goal weight, we did it by percentage. Everyone had to post what their ideal weight was, not just that they intended to loose 10 or 20 lbs. So if Susie should be down to 145 lbs, and needs to loose 80 to get there, and June needs to loose 12 lbs to get to her goal, Susie won't automatically win with a 40 lb loss.

    That said...I sure would like to shed 10, and wouldn't mind the push!
