I HAVE GOT TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT...
How many of us say that? Or at least thought that...
I have. And I've tried. On a number of occasions. Atkins? Yep. No Soda or Sugar? Come on, I'm in youth ministry. Exercise? When I can, and want. Counting calories? Until I eat out or at a church members house.
Truth is, I do need to lose some weight. And I want to, I really want to! I'm getting older. I don't burn calories the way I used to when I was younger. My kids are growing older, my student ministry is growing, and I want to be able to enjoy my family and my ministry. And frankly, my wife works really hard to stay in shape; I want to be in shape for her.
So here's the deal...
Our friends over at Download Youth Ministry have launched a special program for youth workers, their wives, and volunteers to help them lose weight in the new year. The Youth Pastor Diet Contest!
The Youth Pastor Diet Contest is a 100-Day Challenge, that begins on January 1st, and runs through April 11th, where youth workers will be working to lose weight in the new year. I am thrilled to announce, that I have joined the movement! This weekend, I signed to participate in the contest! Yeah, me!!
I'm really excited about this! I mean, I have to lose weight. But being part of contest comes with a slew of potential prizes. According to the website, the top Weight Winners in each division (Male and Female) will receive:
Other prizes include: (according to the website)
Additional prizes and giveaways to be announced EVERY WEEK!
Prizes aside, being part of the contest also offers, a supportive community of youth workers including an invitation to the exclusive Youth Pastor Diet Facebook groups (separate for Male and Female). There is a 6-month digital calisthenics program from http://ftwfitness.com, a Youth Worker Cookbook, and the change to get healthy in the new year!
You need to lose some Weight too!
The new year is just a few weeks a way. You know you are going to make a new year resolution to lose weight. AND you know you'll quit in a couple of days. So let's do something different and let's lose weight together! Join the contest! Join youth workers from all over and let's work to lose weight in 2019!
