Get Fit

Our company is doing a weight loss contest. Everyone has to form teams of five and do their initial weigh in today and then in 8 weeks will be the final weigh in and the team that loses the biggest percentage of their weight will get a cash prize. Our office has 2 teams. I'm kind of doubting we will win but I guess it's good encouragement for me to diet.
I am not good at sticking with diets. If I had a nickel for every "program" I've been on - well - I would be laying on a beach right now in retirement. Just in the past year - I've dabbled in weight watchers, low carb, exercise only, and body for life. (and I think I'm about 10 lbs heavier than last January).
"Lean and Mean" is my team's name. Hopefully in 8 weeks that's what I'll be. (except for the mean part - I'd rather be lean and nice.
