This week I'm trying something different...a challenge with a prize for the winner!

Did you realize that there are only 2 months left until summer?

Let's enjoy a friendly can't hurt to have an added incentive to our weight loss endeavours right?

The Beach Body Challenge is simple...whoever loses the most weight/inches/clothing sizes by the first day of summer wins!

LOL...I'd like to get each of us one of these illusion suits :)

The prize for the winner of the Beach Body Challenge is the must-have accessory that fits everyone heading to the beach...flip flops!!


It's time for our monthly check-in so we'll be using the stats you take today as your beach body challenge starting point.

Since I post my weekly blogs on Saturdays, the beach body challenge results will be posted on June 22.

(I will be contacting all participants on June 21 for their end of competition stats so I can announce the winner on the blog the next day)

If you'd like to join the challenge please leave your name and current stats in the comment area below :)

My check-in this month is pretty much the same as always. All I've done this year is stay stuck on a plateau. My inches haven't changed and my weight fluctuates by a pound or two...always gaining and losing the same two pounds over and over again. LOL...I am still weighing myself every day and it's never the same weight two days in a row.

I thought up this beach body challenge as a way to boost my competitive side enough that hopefully I would see more weight coming off and staying off. I haven't worn a bathing suit in decades...bought myself a tankini last year...and really want to find the confidence to wear it this summer :)

NEXT WEEK'S BLOG: The Weight of the Matter


DISCLAIMER: Whenever I use the word DIET in my blog posts I am in no way suggesting that I have invented/discovered some miracle system to lose weight. Whenever I use the word DIET, I am simply substituting a single word to replace the longer phrase EATING HEALTHIER THAN IN THE PAST.


  1. I love this post Cheryl and oh my that painted on bathing suit is a crack-up. Wishing everyone the best and just losing dresses sizes for me would be the biggest win. :)

  2. Oops, I forgot to say that I am taking the challenge, lol. My starting weight is 149 lbs.

  3. I'll try! My starting weight is 142.5 - Its been that much since we bought the scale last month so def. hoping to loose something.

    Can Anthony enter? If so, his weight today was 214. We are both trying to cut down our weight.

    1. LOL...I love that you added the .5!!

      Yes, Anthony can enter. I think Dad will also once he reads this week's blog.

  4. If Anthony can enter,so can I.......169lbs.And I'll need dark brown ones...tks.
