My good buddy John deHaas and I have been friends for several years. We talk just about every day and recently I realized we were in the same headspace in regards to wanting to loose weight. My struggles with my weight going up and down are well documented on this blog and I am always looking for something to light that fire under my hinder and drop some pounds. With John feeling the same way I figured, why not have ourselves a little challenge? So that’s what we’re doing.
Starting today, and running though Memorial Day (Monday, May 25) John and I are having the Do It For Yourselfie Challenge! We will do our best to lose weight from now until then and then in May, see who is the winner. We are looking at percentage of body weight lost, not total pounds and we are aiming to lose the weight in a healthy manner.
It’s not even the end of Day 1 and of the challenge and already there is a lot of trash talking and texting each other pictures of horrible food (candy, donuts, etc.). But it is to be expected when there is so much on the line. Ah yes…what is being wagered.
John and I both think that Selfie Sticks are one of the stupidest things on the planet. We both enjoy going to theme parks and will often take photos of people using Selfie Sticks and text them to each other. So, the loser of this little wager will have to go to a theme park and take a selfie of themselves with a Selfie Stick. The loser will also have to have someone take a picture of them while they are using the Selfie Stick. Both pictures must then be posted to the web.
So there we go. Game on. I can’t wait to see John’s Selfie Stick Selfie in May!
Also, John currently has a Go Fund Me campaign going on to help fund his musical. If you have a moment, go check it out!
