This year is the 2nd Annual Weight Loss Competition put on by Body Xchange- "The Bakersfield Loser" started today and apparently there are over 300 participants, including me. Last year's winner lost 80 pounds. The 2nd place guy was at weigh ins this morning. He lost 60+ pounds. The most amazing part is when he reached into his pocket and pulled out three bottles of pills and said, "these are the pills, that I no longer take, thanks to the Bakersfield Loser competition." Wow. I am looking forward to this competition helping motivate me in my weight loss goals.
