Pound for Pound Challenge

If you are losing weight already, or need an extra excuse to get started, here is an idea that I love.

The Pound for Pound Challenge donates food to organization that fight hunger, when you pledge to lose weight. It is very simple, and easy to sign up. You go to and in less than 5 minutes you are all signed up and ready to go. I think it is especially cool that you are pledging for your own state, so here in Oregon it goes to the Oregon Food Bank! You can pledge in any state, so there are no excuses!!

You don't have to go nuts on the weight loss, in fact you can't pledge over 50 pounds no matter what. It is all about getting hungry people food, and keeping those of us who could lose a few pounds, on track!

I would love to know if you sign up, so leave a comment and let me know. Also, I changed it so you don't have to type in the weird letters/words to comment, so there are no excuses folks! If you are from my facebook friends, you can use you FB ID in the Open ID section. So, lets get going guys!!
