Well, The Beeson Family Lose for the Cruise Extravaganza is weight loss game my mom created to get us all into shape. It all started in October of 2010, when my mom came to all of us and said that she was tired of having fat children. (She may have put it a little bit nicer than that, but you get the general idea).
Anyway, in the past couple of years all of us have put on, then lost, and then put back on, considerable amounts of weight. Well, my mom has finally had enough! She is starting to worry about our health, and in my family, we have enough health issues to worry about without adding obesity into the mix. She decided that we needed an incentive to lose the weight and get healthy, and thus The Beeson Family Lose for the Cruise Extravaganza was born!
The rules are simple; each of us has a weight goal, in which we have a year to meet (October 2011). We then have to keep it off for six months (April 2011), and if we can do that, then we get to go on a prebooked Caribbean cruise. However, if we do not meet the weight goal in time, then we have to stay home and someone else gets to go in our place. That's it!
Now it’s March, and time to get serious. (No more close calls for me)! On Monday February 28th I joined Weight Watchers, and then just one week later on Monday March 7th at the Weight Watchers weigh in I lost 6.2 pounds! Another BIG yay!
So now everyone should be up to speed on The Beeson Family Lose to Cruise Extravaganza! Watch for the next update, and wish me luck in the April weigh in! ;)
