~Pound for Pound & Kroger Family Of Stores Gift Card Giveaway~


You´ve seen the Biggest Loser on TV, watched contestant´s struggles and achievements, and may have even thought, "Hey, I can do that!" Instead of waiting for the BBQs to be over and your schedule to open up, put all excuses aside and make a pledge to live healthier with the Pound For Pound Challenge.
The Kroger Co. Family of Stores, General Mills, NBC's hit TV Show "The Biggest Loser" and other key sponsors are partnering to donate up to $1,080,000 to Feeding America this year.




If you´re a fan of the Biggest Loser, you may have seen several great General Mills products featured on the show. These products, including Yoplait Greek yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios.

Now I have to be honest...

Last week I was flipping through the channels and stopped on The Biggest Loser.

The contestants had lost so much weight I didn't even realize they were the same people. They were going back to their hometowns. Their friends and family had not seen them since they left for the ranch. I tell you, they did GREAT! In 18 weeks they had lost right at and above 150 lbs.
'The Biggest Loser: 2010 winner
Michael Ventrella who had a starting weight of 526 pounds and lost a total of 264 pounds

Look what he did when he put his mind to it!


For every pound you pledge to lose through June 30, 2010, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America®—enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank.


Now, I know you may think that 14¢ is not much but go to Pound For Pound Challenge and check out all the pledges they have received so far!
While you are there, make your own pledge!


Follow them on Facebook!
This statement was taken from the Pound For Pound Challenge facebook page:


Pound For Pound Challenge
Last year, The Pound For Pound Challenge helped Feeding America® deliverd more than 3.5 million pounds of groceries to local food banks. The Pound For Pound Challenge is back for year two and with your participation, we hope it is even a greater success!
