8 week Summer Weight Loss Challenge

There is only three weeks until the start of my eight week Summer Weight Loss Challenge - so who is going to take part? You don't need to do anything just yet. As long as I get your first weigh in by midnight on Saturday May 12 then you are entered.

So far I have 12 people who have shown an interest in joining :)

I contacted PopChips and they have kindly sent me some coupons for some money off and some free bags of popchips - I must confess I am slightly addicted to the sweet potato ones! I've just checked the coupons and they are only valid until June 30th, which is before the end of the challenge, so I will send them to the person with the largest % loss after the 4 weigh in - so you have two chances to win something.
  • Challenge will start on Saturday May 12 2012, with the final weigh in being on Saturday July 7th.
  • The challenge is open to everyone regardless of what weight loss plan you are following.
  • Your first weigh in must be emailed to me ( or by DM on twitter (@SarahLou1976) by midnight on Saturday May 12 in order for you to take part in the challenge.
  • Photos of starting and ending weight (scale display or WW log would be great) must be submitted.
  • Each Sunday I will update my blog with details of the person with the biggest % loss, I won't post your weight or weight loss (it will remain private throughout the challenge) just the % loss.  There may be a delay with the first weeks update as I will be in Vegas, so may not get a chance to send an update out till the Tuesday night.
  • I would like to list the names of all the participants, using first name and initial of last name and twitter name, but if you prefer not to have this posted please let me know.
  • You must email me your weekly weigh in by midnight each Saturday night.
  • I will set challenges each week, which will range from food related to exercise related, which you can choose to participate in.
  • The winner will be the person with the highest % loss at the end of the 8 weeks and must have submitted proof of starting and ending weight.
  • There will be a prize for the winner, which I will choose nearer the time, but will probably consist of gift cards of some kind. So you will need to provide me with your actual address if you are the winner.
  • If any company is reading this and would like to donate a prize for the winner - please let me know :)
  • I will be taking part but won't be eligible for winning the prize.
It's going to be lots of fun, and hopefully a great motivation for some good weight losses. Feel free to share this blog post with your friends and family the more participants the better.

For those of you on twitter we are going to use #LoseW8in8

I look forward to lots of you joining the challenge.


  1. Sounds like fun! I'd love to join in the challenge with you guys. :)

  2. I'm in. Just emailed you my starting weight. I'm always late to the party! :)

  3. Statistics don't lie- it's a proven scientific fact that people who work from detailed menu plans and shopping lists achieve 50% greater results toward weight loss. That just blew your mind right? The Zone Diet by Barry Sears PhD, follows a formula of 40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fats- this must be followed at every meal. Have you ever wanted to be on the 'perfect diet' is there really such a program? Zone is considered by some to be the perfect diet, the Zone diet has helped thousands of people lose weight and improve their health.
