Think Thin Thursdays: Need your Opinion!

Aubrie is 8 months old now and this baby weight is not going anywhere! I stepped on the scale tonight and decided it is time to really DO SOMETHING! I have just not been properly motivated due to the exhaustion of raising an infant and toddler! You would think that the closet full of clothes that I can’t fit into would be enough motivation. Nope. I even tried to watch The Biggest Loser to get some inspiration. While I love the show, I usually sit and watch it while eating OREOs. Very counterproductive.

After having Lily, I joined Weight Watchers and was quite successful. I attribute my success to the fact that I was held accountable every week at the meetings when I faced the scale in front of actual people. There was no hiding what I did or didn’t do that week, The scale doesn’t lie.

I would join Weight Watchers again, but honestly, I just don’t have the money right now. So, I started thinking about how I could have that same accountability that worked so well last time. This is where YOU come in!

I am thinking of starting a “Think Thin Thursday” weight loss game. I plan to vlog myself standing on the scale for the number to be seen by all (gasp!). Each Thursday, I will step on the scale again and post another vlog. Feel free to send encouraging comments when I succeed or kick my butt into gear if I slip up. Y’all can be my Weight Watchers meeting (you are a lot cheaper! LOL!)!

Want to join me? I am thinking of taking it a step further and trying to get some “Think Thin Thursdays” buddies on board. You can vlog yourself on the scale at home each Thursday on your own blog and link here. If you lose weight…..ANY amount of weight, come here to “The Not-So-Blog” and sign the Mr. Linky (which I will affectionately call the “Shrinky Linky“) that will be posted under my own vlog. If I can round up a few sponsors, a winner will be chosen at random from the “Shrinky Linky!”
You can lose weight, look great AND win prizes….for FREE!! Does it get any better than that??

Are you interested in joining me?? If I can generate some interest, I will start rounding up some great sponsors and get a graphic made for the participants to post on their sidebars! If you are a business and are interested in sponsoring a “Think Thin Thursday,” please contact me at notsoblog@gmail.com. I will blog about your product on your Thursday and provide links back to your business as well as display your button on my sidebar for the duration of the contest.

I am thinking of starting next Thursday, November 13.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think? Want to play? Any suggestions?

  2. id liek to join but is it ok if i post a blog instead of a vlog.. I dont like videos of me in the internet..
    sweet..pretty..naughty

    Sweety tots

  3. Can you post a picture of your feet on the scale? That way there is proof of your weight loss for your entry to the giveaways.

  4. I’d love to join, but I’m so worried about Thanksgiving Day, lol! Just kidding, it sounds like a great idea. I could really use some motivation, I haven’t stepped on a scale in forever!

  5. The Petersons says:

    This is such a great idea! And you’re so brave. I’m not quite ready for something like this. Maybe when I’m a little thinner?? LOL

  6. Hmmm I like this idea…. specially since it forces the honesty. Not crazy about posting my weight, but hey, maybe thats what I need to finally kick my arse into gear. Count me in.

    Not sure how I do the vlog thing, but I’m sure I will figure it out.

    Great idea 🙂

  7. Sounds fun I might join ! Let me think about how much embarrassment I can take LOL

  8. I am interested but only in the support aspect. While I would love to win prizes, posting my actual weight on my blog…I can’t do that.

    Actually, I am joining weight watchers online. I am not a meetings type person but did very well with the online portion after having my son.

  9. Sounds like a great plan and I am in. I can’t get my baby weight off either and really there is no excuse. he is 18 months old and I am still holding onto the extra 25 pounds

  10. CallansMama says:

    That sounds great! My son is 8 months old as well, and I neeeeed to lose this weight. I have been working on it now for about 2 weeks and not a whole lot is happening. 4 pounds down, and 36 more to go! LOL. I don’t know how to do a vlog, but I could give it a whirl.

  11. 3 Kids and Us says:

    I would love to join but unfortunately it’s not encouraged to lose weight while pregnant…but I’ll be on board come March.

  12. I’m in.. I think! I’m still mustering up the courage to post my actual weight on this blog. Maybe if I post it on my Extrapounds blog. Could I do that? Oh, and I would rather just post a pic of my feet on the scale with the reading. At least for the first few weeks.

    Great idea for motivation though!

  13. I love it! I might even have to buy a scale.

  14. Jesica: You only have to post the picture or the vlog on your OWN website. If you lose ANY amount of weight, come to THIS blog and sign the “Shrinky Linky” in order to be entered to win a prize.

    And heck…I am only showing my feel and scale, too! LOL!

  15. This is such a great idea, and I would join you if I wasn’t too paranoid about my weight LOL but since I am, I don’t think I’m ready for the world to see what I weigh LOL

  16. Miyamotos says:

    My daughter’s 11 months now and I still have some extra fat hanging around. I would love to be a part of this too! I think I’ll just post a picture instead of a vlog though.

  17. I’m in B!!

  18. Kimberly @ AllAboutKimberly says:

    If I can muster up the guts to put my weight on my site, I’m in…..I really do need motivation and maybe this would be the cold hard truth and get me going….

    Prizes are great too!! 🙂

  19. elishevaavi says:

    I am terrified of my scale, and my baby is five months old. I don’t think I will be vlogging these confrontations any time soon, but I applaud your mettle.

  20. I’m in but i’m like Architect can I post a picture?

  21. Jolly Mom says:

    There is no way I am weighing in for the Blog Universe to see : )BUT I will join in spirit and come cheer everyone on! I have lost about 30 pounds but still have 15 more to go!! It’s been 14 months since my son was born…ugh!

  22. Bridgette,

    Is it just to lose weight or get into shape too? Because I really don’t have all that much to lose, but I should excercise more and tone my tummy muscles (stupid c-sections)

  23. I am in. In fact I am starting my diet tomorrow. Doing the internet WW again.

  24. Kim @ What's That Smell says:

    I should participate. My daughter is 11 months old and I am still 40 lbs heavier than before…
