Pound for Pound Challenge

Have you heard about the Pound for Pound Challenge?

It's a website where you can pledge to lose a certain amount of pounds (you decide). And then the Pound for Pound Challenge will donate $.14 to a local food bank. (That's enough to deliver a pound of food to a local food bank...how discouraging is that, to think about the price of grocery store food! But that's another topic...)

Anyway, this is sponsored by the Pound for Pound organization and The Biggest Loser show.

I went to their website this evening and pledged to lose 10 pounds. I don't think they come out and weigh me or anything; it's just a pledge. It seems like a good way to do something good for others while I work on my goal of becoming healthier.

As part of the pledge, it asks for your zip code, which will then allow you to select a local food bank to receive the donation based on your pledge.

Check out their website at: http://www.pfpchallenge.com/

I just pleaged. Yeah for helping the food bank. I don't have much to loose, but helping is always good, even if it is only a few pounds.

We'd love to hear from you!
