As many of you know, almost two months ago I embarked on the Game On! Diet, by Krista Vernoff (Head Writer of Grey's Anatomy) and Az Ferguson (Million Dollar Body for Life Champion). While I am not a person who has ever successfull dieted (ok, except for that time when I got a personal trainer, fell in love, worked out all the time and then married him, but that was a little different), I found the team aspect and the point winning aspect of the Game On! Diet to be highly addictive and motivating. In my first game I lost 10 lbs! I've been technically "game off" for the past three weeks, and as such, was a bit concerned about stepping on the scale this am (I ate A LOT of white bread and cake in Minnesota). But besides that trip and a few other dietary indiscretions, I was basically staying on the 5-meal-a-day plan. Well let me tell you it works, because this am I found out I'd lost another 2 lbs in the past three weeks, while basically not trying and having a couple of ice cream/wine fests to boot! So I feel really motivated for the new game. And this time there are 7 teams playing at work, with nearly 30 people in total participating! You can follow my progress, and that of a whole bunch more people I don't even know, on twitter by following the hashtag #gameondiet. You can also browse inside The Game On! Diet to see what it's all about for yourself.
Today also marks the end of the Game On! Diet for a fabulous group of book bloggers who played against each other. It's been so great to read their tweets and posts today -- 10 lbs lost, 6.4 lbs lost, 3 inches lost, etc. We're still not sure which team won (teams win by number of points earned, not necessarily lbs lost) and I can't wait to see the results. But in the meantime, I want to offer a huge congratulations to all the players -- you were all awesome, and fantastic motivation! I wish you could all climb up on some Olympic style podium thingies and we could hang medals around your necks!
