Pound for Pound Challenge Kicks off on The Biggest Loser

Here we are again, the start of a brand new year. Every year during the holiday season the same thing happens … we pack on a few extra pounds. It’s hard to resist all the wonderful food and drinks surrounding the holidays.

I am willing to bet that more than half of us have the same New Year’s Resolution to shed those unwanted pounds. Well … here is a way for us to do it together and help feed our Central Florida neighbors in need at the same time!

“The Biggest Loser” on NBC is sponsoring the 2nd Pound for Pound Challenge. General Mills has been gracious enough to donate 14 cents per pound pledged on the Pound for Pound Website. The Challenge Kicks off on The Biggest Loser tonight at 8 p.m.

Let’s make Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida the #1 food bank in America! Already we are first in Florida. So go ahead and think about your goal, pledge the pounds, and let your friends and family know! Remember- for us to get the credit, one must type in a Central Florida zip code. We have until May 2010 to meet our goals.

Check out this video from last season to get a closer look on how the Pound for Pound Challenge will not only change our lives, but the lives of people in need right here in our own community.


Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has formed a team. We will be participating in group exercise activities and weigh ins before and after work! We will also be posting updates (photos and videos) on our progress via this blog.

Do you want to get move involved? Join our Facebook group! Share your favorite recipes, work out tips, and success stories. It is always better to have the support of friends, families, co-workers, and neighbors! Anyone can create a team of Central Florida’s Biggest Losers!

Don’t forget to send 5 friends an e-card and have them join.

Together we can change our lifestyles and help those that need it most. Let’s show America that Central Florida can be THE BIGGEST LOSERS!

Sign up for the Pound for Pound Challenge.

Good luck and most importantly… HAVE FUN!
