Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • I've actually got a head start on you guys.  I made some kale chips this afternoon to go with my cocktails and chicken thighs.  And I'm throwing the left over Christmas cookies in the trash.

    Oops.......did I say cocktails?............how do you edit this dag gummed post!

  • Hm ideas ideas, how do you do a weight loss contest and make sure everyone is honest? How about taking a video and emailing it? Something like that.

    I think you guys will like the prizes so far I have collected, still looking for more.

    I'd be in... last year I lost 25 lbs but the dang stuff found me again :))

    A little extra motivation would help get back on track.

    Oh, sure ... have this contest NOW, after I've already lost 86.5lbs!  Of course, I did have gastric bypass surgery last March, so while it is by far the hardest thing I've ever gone through, some may consider it "cheating."

    I'm in, although I am not much of a threat. Let me know the particulars when you get them worked out. I quit smoking almost 2 years ago and have gained close to fifty pounds. I would love to lose some of that 50.

    In!  I believe in the honor system.  I need to drop about 25 lbs.  Two spinal surgeries in the last year have made me pretty complacent, plus i just hurt my back again!  (i found this forum while sitting at home after the first surgery)

    What are we going to do as a start date? I just heard back from the great folks at ICA kitchen and they have agreed to donate a Sous Vide Sidekic as a prize for our competition! I think that's pretty darn cool. I think honor system.

  • That is pretty sweet. I know it just my drive to lose some weight and win the competition.
    ·
  • Very cool. Here is a good framework for a weight loss contest (thanks to another member on here)




    ·
  • Looks like we have 21 people competing for 3 prizes here is up so far for winning (we may do a 1st, 2nd 3rd prizes). I am thinking of a start date of either Monday 1/7 or Monday 1/14. With a 12 week competition. I agree we have to go some sense on the honor system. I also like the idea of uploading a photo or a video of the person weighing in. Thoughts?
    ·
  • Thanks CT, good article. I think we will do the weekly weigh in, weigh in on the start date. If I can get a few more donations we can get some midway prizes as well.

    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    1/7 or 1/14. Makes no difference to me. I personally like starting and finishing weigh ins. I think it allows one to not show their hand.  I don't want my progress to "wake" you up. Just my opinion though. 

    Also, I think the honor system is fine to an extent, but I think having a a picture of your weigh in plus a front and side profile pic will show progression and keep it honest. You will be able to tell if someone lost 30 pounds from the pics alone so I think it will help certify the statistics.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

  • I agree with you cazzy.

    I agree with Cazzy, I also think pictures should have a date reference like te days newspaper as Travis mentioned.

  • OK, so looks like we are starting on 1/7, taking pictures of ourselves with a news paper (both front and side), then a picture of the scale. Pictures should be uploaded by 11:00pm (Eastern Time) Monday 1/7/12. (What should the cut off date to join this little competition be Sunday night?
