    Check this out

    I know that some of us are a tad on the heavy side and would like to change that. Discovery channel is doing a nationwide challenge in which you sign up and try to lose as much weight as you can in 12 weeks (Axia & Protoss, this may not be for you...). If you sign up on Jan 10, you get a free 3mo membership to Ballys Fitness as well as some other things to help you out. There's also the possibility to get on TV. I'm definitely going to be doing this. The only sign up place in town is at the Fashion Show so we can meet up and go if any of you are interested. Personally I'm in it for the free gym and the chance for TV. (I need as much exposure as possible to get my audition for The Hobbit)

    You know what? When I first read this thread, i was like, "Whatever. I aint going to put myself through something like this. Think of the embarassment; think of the possibility of feeling even worse when you fail; think of the sacrifice you'd have to go through."

    But, i just went to the link and checked it out, and I'm planning on giving it a shot as well. now I just need to find a way of getting to the place jan 10th.

    I'll pick you up if you need a lift. In fact I'll pick both of you up and we can bask in all that is Barenaked Ladies. The band I mean, of course. How early do you guys want to get up? The sign up is at the Fashion Show.

    let me check my work schedule today and I'll get back to you on that.. I don't care how early we have to wake up...

    When I first saw this post I thought you were actually challenging people to lose weight, like personally, and I was all like 'heck yeah' and i was thinking there was a prize at the end or something... but I guess this is cool too.....of course we could all drop in like $20 or $10 and whoever loses the most weight keeps the money.. you know, just a monetary incentive ontop of the weightloss incentive... but we can discuss this privately when we all get together with bare naked ladies (the band of course)...

    The tenth is a Saturday, which means I don't have work (not that it would matter, since i work at 10:00pm). It all matters on if i work friday night. If I do, then I just won't go to sleep when i get home, and you can pick me up as early as you wanna go. If I don't, well then, just tell me when you want to pick me up, and I'll set my alarm for an hour before that.

    And I'm always up for basking in Barenaked Ladies. (I'm perposly not saying "the band, of course" because I'd be up to basking in either... or both.)

    Hmmm... I don't want to quench the excitment, but I went here:

    http://bally.know-where.com/BallyFitness2/

    and tried to locate the nearest club in the valley. It would seem it's in San Bernadino...



    Stands to reason that if they are signing up people here, they will have an alternate club line available for people to go to, like Las Vegas Athletic Clubs, or 24 Fitness or something.

    ... [face_plain] ... funny.


    Yeah so, I'm still in, as long as they do provide an alternate fitness club membership. You'd think Bally's would have a Bally's would have a Bally's Fitness... go figure.

    Pretty easy, I live at Warm Springs and Arroyo Grande, in the Viejo Verde Apartment Homes. If you tell me when you'll be here, I'll wait right outside the complex.

    Well the time is coming soon and I am getting pumped I think that it is very important to set some goals before starting this. We should all post our goals here so Im going start.

    My goal is to lose 5 pounds a week, if done it before so lets hope I can do it again :)
