It’s Baaaaack!! #AwesomeByAugust!

Remember this awesome icon from last year?

Well, Awesome By August is back for another year! Some things have changed so, listen up!

First off, we have our own Facebook page where we’ll be having the weekly weigh ins and a place to offer support to each other.

Sign up is from today until Tuesday (7/12) 10pm ET time, all you have to do is post your starting weight and a goal you want to accomplish during the 4 weeks of the competition. This goal is to be non-weight related! So, maybe you want to run a mile, maybe you want to lose 3 inches of your body, or maybe you just want to cook dinner 3 nights a week. Just come up with a goal! :)

Weekly weigh ins will be posted on the Facebook page also. You MUST post your weight if you want to win prizes. Weigh ins must be posted by Monday at midnight ET!

Speaking of prizes, we’ll be doing a drawing every week for someone to win a prize. This will be at random, not by who is losing the most weight. And at the end of the four weeks, there will be a bigger prize drawing for people who have participated EVERY week.

There will also be a couple of Twitter chats to see how people are doing. And if you use Twitter, make sure to use the hashtag #awesomebyaugust when talking about the competition!

Also, be sure to make use of the Facebook page. Need advice? Post on the wall. Just had a kick ass workout? Post on the wall! We’re all here for you! :)

Oh, this runs from 7/11/11-8/8/11! Make sure you get those weigh ins in!!

Now, Steve, Kerri, and I stress that this is a HEALTHY and fun weight loss competition. We all need support sometimes, so please be supportive and be smart about the competition. Let’s all be Awesome by August!!
