Think Thin Thursdays: Official Rules!

Let’s get fit! Thank you all for joining me and being my support system while I say Buh-Bye to the baby weight.

Let me start by outlining the rules:

1. Grab the “Think Thin Thursdays” button made by Kim at JA Blog Graphics and display it proudly on your sidebar!

The Not-So-Blog

2. Set a goal you intend to accomplish this week. If you are participating to lose weight, your goal can be as simple as “lose weight.” If you are participating in order to tone up, please set a more specific goal. For example, I will walk one mile twice a week. Blog about your goals and make sure you link back to THIS rules post and encourage others to join us! Next Thursday, you will tell the world about your achievements and set a new goal.

In order to keep myself motivated, I plan to post a picture of my weight every Thursday. If you are not ready for that, simply blog about your weight-loss experience that week. You do NOT have to divulge the actual numbers or show a picture.

3. Complete a task you will find here each Thursday and include it in your blog post for the week.
4. IF YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL (we are going on the honor system here) come back here NEXT Thursday and sign the “Shrinky Linky” in order to be eligible for prizes (and so we can all pat you on the back!). I encourage you all to visit the blogs of the participants and send words of encouragement. You may only sign the Shrinky Linky if you have achieved your goal!!

That’s it!! We can do this together!

In summary:
1. Grab the button.
2. Set a goal. Blog about it. Complete weekly task in your post. Link back to THIS post.
3. Diet. Exercise.
4. If you attain your goal, sign the Shrinky Linky to be eligible for prizes.
5. Visit other blogs to offer support and encouragement.
6. Set a new goal!

Your task for this week is:
Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can.” ~Author Unknown

What are your reasons??

So, are you up to the challenge?!? Sign the very first “Shrinky Linky” to let me know you are on board!


  1. Count me in!

  2. Me too!

    I’m confused. Is this on Thursdays, or is it just early this week because it’s new? I wrote up my post and just scheduled it for Thursday…are we coming back on Thursdays, or on Tuesdays…? Should I just publish my post whenever and sign Mr. Shrinky, or wait…? Is there going to be another post on Thursday? I’m so confused, but I’m a ditz, so I’m allowed to be confused =P

  4. Rita: I just posted early so everyone could be ready for tomorrow! Tomorrow is the initial “weigh in”. Come back next Thursday and tell us about your progress and sign up for prizes!

  5. OK, I’m doing this, but I’m not posting my weight. I lost 20# over the summer doing P90X with my husband. We’ll start that program again. Think thin!!!

  6. I am in!!

  7. I’ll be back tomorrow, can’t wait!

  8. Yay! I am in since I don’t have to post a picture of my weight.

    I am in but not sure if I did it all correctly.

    Anyhow, my post and the button are up on my site.

  15. Yay! Such a great idea, Bridgette. Thanks for hosting. I only found out about this today so I just posted my first entry. Can’t wait to participate!
