Can you lose just 5 lbs. this year?

Can you lose five lbs. this year? Just five pounds? Just a simple five pounds?

How much effort would it take to lose five pounds this year? C'mon that's less than half a pound per month. I would bet for most people this would be painless; painless effort-wise and perhaps remove or reduce some pain from your joints.

Do you realize most adults slowly gain weight over the years? All of a sudden they look back and wonder where five pounds came from. Ten. Twenty. Thirty. Look at it this way, if your extreme attempts resulted in a 5 lb. weight gain in 2007, minimal attempts would have ultimately resulted in a 10 lb loss; the five you gained, plus the five you could have lost.

Imagine if over the next five years you could lose twenty-five pounds without really trying. Would that be monumental for some of you?

Minimal effort.
Long-term results.
Scales going in the right direction.
What do you think?

What will you do today to lose 1/2 a lb. this month? Eat one less snack? Swap a crappy snack for a piece of fruit? Park your car on the other side of the parking lot? Heck how about at the foot of the driveway for beginners? Order 1/2 a sandwich? The list goes on and on. Wouldn't it be great if you could look at what you ate on January 2, 2007 and just make a minor adjustment in the right direction? Well if you had kept a journal of everything you ate last year you could have. Oh, hindsight.

Now go get Skinny!

Hey Rich - 5 @ 5:30 or $5.30 sounds intriguing and ahem! challenging. Is the call-in a group chat of sorts? Is there any chance of getting hung up on busy signals (since we are racing out the door to exercise)? Have you considered some vacation reprieve - perhaps days noted on the application form? I'm not totally horrified at the idea of waking up to your mellifluous tones at 5:30am on my vacation (hide the lie detector!) but I often vacation out of cell range (Maine, W VA, VT) with no reliable phone service. Just an idea.

Everyone states their intention for the day; you're dialing in to a conference line, so no busy signals. So in addition to my mellifluous tones you'll hear ideas of others. No reprieves; too much admin nightmare for me. Let's face it; if it gets you to where you want to be and in the end IF it costs you a few bucks is there less value to the program?

Sure there is value even if not entirely free.

How about legal holidays off?!?!? MLK Day, President's Day?

Well if I decide to take those days off I owe all the participants $5.30
