Lose for Good

Today is Lose-A-Palooza - a one-day social media event to help raise awareness and encourage participation in the Lose For Good campaign. For every mention of "Lose For Good" made on Facebook, blogs, Twitter, and check-ins via foursquare, Weight Watchers will donate $1 - up to $60,000 - as part of the Lose For Good donation. Go to for details.

Lose for Good is a campaign running from 9/5-10/23/10, to raise money to fight hunger. There are so many ways to contribute! I can contribute just by being a member and losing weight:) Also, for every lb I lose, I am bringing in a food item equal to that weight to donate to a local food bank. This week I only lost .4, so I could donate a small box of raisins. Hoping to lose at least 1.2 ponds next week which will put me right back where I was prior to going on vacation:) Then I can bring in some heavier canned food.

Have you lost weight? Do you ever wonder what you have really lost? What a difference it makes? Go to a store or a gym and pick up a weight or 2 equalling the amount you have lost. It is amazing to feel the actual weight that you used to carry around! I held a 15 lb weight in my meeting yesterday, and that is 5 lbs less than what I have lost, but boy was it heavy! Can't believe I carried that much more of me around before. Hoping to be a lot lighter by Christmas!
