Family Bet

Merry Christmas everyone!!

While we were celebrating Christmas today, John's Dad brought up a contest for 2008. I'm not allowed to play because it was deemed to be unfair... but between John, Susan, Jimmy, Betty, and possibly Ryan - they will see who can lose the most weight in '08.

On January 1st - they will all be at our house to weigh in and pay $50 toward the bet, and we will put it in our money market account to gain as much interest as possible. The trick is - that the first $200 or $250 will be awarded to the biggest loser between January and July 4th. Then a second pot of the same amount will be awarded to the biggest loser between July and January 1, 2009.

This ought to be interesting!! I think that they are all eating their hearts out right now to "bulk" up before the first weigh in... or at least everyone other than John. I'll post pictures when I can of the official weigh in... I guess since I can't play - I'll be the host of the first annual Hawkins Biggest Loser Contest.

I'll also post pics of the holiday as soon as I can - I left our camera at John's parent's house... so we're working on meeting them to get it back.
