I Just Put a Contract On Myself

My weight situation is out of hand and has been for quite some time. I can blame it on my illness last fall and my resulting low energy level, but really, I eat too much junk and drink too much beer.


I just signed up at and set up a contract to lose 2 pounds per week. I have 26 pounds to lose, so my contract is 13 weeks long.

For extra incentive, there is money riding on my contract.

I will weigh in every Wednesday and log my progress into stickK and if I fail to lose 2 pounds, $5 will be donated to the anti-charity of my choice. I won't reveal who I chose, because SashaSays is not about politics, but let's just say it's something I *don't* support. StickK's list includes pro-choice and antiabortion groups, several presidential libraries (Rep and Dem) and even British soccer teams.

Anyone care to join me?

What a cool idea!!! My weight situation is out of freaking control, too, (even with 10K training - how sucky is that?!). I'm going to have to strongly consider this. I like the anti-charity thing.

I've heard about this. I might have to try it but I am afraid I'd make my anti-charity rich.

I will have to think about this. I was thinking that I can't afford to do this. But then after thinking about it more, I was thinking, "What better incentive to NOT have to pay then not being able to afford to pay?"

What a fun idea! Good luck!
