I have a $100 bill in my pocket, but it’s not mine.
All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me how you’d use it to help yourself take another big step on your weight-loss journey.
Would you use it to join the Y?
Purchase a kettlebell? (I was gonna buy one of those bad boys, but I had a crystal-clear vision of my daughter Pisa playing with it, swinging it around and whacking me in my oh-so-delicate man-parts).
Rejoin Weight Watchers or put it towards a Wii Fit?
Buy organic candy corn instead of the unhealthy regular kind?
I’m serious: convince me that you’ll use it to try and make a difference in this losing-weight business and I’ll send you the cold hard cash (just one of you, mind you… not everyone).
The individual that makes the most compelling case for the do-re-mi walks away with the C-note. It’s a simple as that.
I should make you tweet about it, and Facebook it and provide a link on your blog, but I’m too lazy to follow up and make sure you actually do any of that, and besides… I’m not pulling names out of a hat on this one.
You’ve just got to leave a comment and sway me.
Nine runners-up will receive consolation prizes made up of (a) health-inspired swag companies have sent me to review that I’ve never actually reviewed and/or (b) odd things lying around my office.
I know you think I’m joking, but I’m serious, and to show just how serious I am, I’m going to post a picture of me holding the $100 bill and looking serious.
Tell me what $100 would do for your weight-loss journey. Be convincing because this is my hard-earned cash we’re talking about.
Comments left on this post between now and midnight on Friday, March 12, 2010, will be considered. Decision of the judge (me) is final, though I reserve the right to bring in additional judges if needed (I’m thinking maybe Judge Judy and that Simon guy from American Idol).
Good luck… and may God have mercy on your souls (I heard that in a movie one time and I just love the way it sounds).
