Trying to make weight loss fun

Ok-lets be honest. If you struggle at all with your weight, you know that the whole process of the getting the number to go down isn’t exactly fun…all the time.

I mean really, it is way more fun to eat a piece of red velvet cake than it is to eat a carrot..right?

Well, I found a fantastic online tool that is actually making the whole weight loss thing…a little bit more fun. I am totally not lying!

What is it? Vitalitywins.com

What is Vitalitywins.com?

Well-it’s an online site that helps you “Gameify” your weight loss.

In a nutshell, it’s a FREE website that helps remind you to eat what your body needs, drink enough water, exercise and floss. There are 7 different levels – so you can choose the level that is best for you.

I know, you are wondering if I meant to put FLOSS, but I totally did. This site will give you points if you floss. I love that! I also love that it gives me points for eating fruits and veggies, any amount of exercise and sleeping!

I know, I know, you are totally intrigued. If you are not, you should be.

Oh wait, I forgot to mention-Vitalitywins.com is a site that allows you to play against your friends, families or enemies or all of them. Everything is based of a % and it’ not just about the scale. It’s all about making good choices to help you change the way you look at being healthy. Games run for 8 weeks. There are weekly awards as well as game winners. However, everyone earns achievement badges and tokens. Tokens are used to play other games on the website.

I know that this is going to sound totally lame, but I love when I get a badge! Why? The game makes a little “ding-ding” sound. I don’t know what it is about that sound, but I love to hear it! You will too

Did I mention that it’s free?

So, you need to run over to the site and sign up & start playing today!  You just need to remember to log your info in every night.

I almost forgot to tell you.

I know what you really all want to know. How much weight have I lost? Well-the scale read that I was down 7lbs. this morning! Not too bad for only playing the game for 2.5 weeks. I keep telling myself that slow and steady weight loss is the only way to go. BUT-I would be lying if I didn’t say that I would love to wake up and have it all be gone.  I know that is NOT going to happen, so I will keep playing the game and one day, I will wake up and it will be all gone.

Too keep it interesting and way more fun, I am playing against a few other bloggers.

Everyone of these girls are fantastic and I love them! I also love that I get to play against them, even though none of them even live remotely close to me.

If you want to be on my team and play against me, let me know.

This whole weight loss thing is so much more fun to do when you have other people to help you along. Besides, I want to leave you all in the dust……

You so know I’m kidding…sort of…

I will keep you posted on how things are going through out the next 6 weeks. I hope that you will play along with me. If you have any questions, please let me know. I will do my best to answer them.

Come and play with me!

Have a fantastic day!
