See that badge above? Have you seen it around on other blogs? Do you know what it is? The Biggest Loser and General Mills is teaming up for a pound for pound challenge.

From the words of Dude at WW - here's how it works: You pledge to lose a certain amount of weight and General Mills will donate 10 cents for every pound you lose to a local food bank. Apparently 10 cent for a food bank will be about a pound of food with the buying power they have.

I have pleaded to lose 20 pounds starting at 185.2. I can totally lose 20 pounds by May... hopefully I'll be down even more by then.

This is a great cause, and it's a great way for you to help out - volunteer (sort of) without really giving any time, and a way for you to donate without spending your money. Interested? Click the badge above for more information and to sign up... also Dude at WW (http://dudeatww.blogspot.com/) is also running his own challenge offering the same... 10 cents for every pound you lose... you can join his too.

Come on people let's lose some weight and help feed the hungry at the same time.
