We are one week away from the final weigh-in (September 14).
During the 2012 London Olympics 20 million viewers tuned in to watch Usain Bolt win the men’s 100 meter dash. $20 million equals two Kim Kardashian weddings, Carmelo Anthony’s 2012 contract with the Knicks, or the amount Jay-Z paid for the island he gave Beyonce for her birthday.
In the last couple of months, Supermarket News has reported the Disney channel is ramping up standards for food advertising with the intention of promoting healthier foods.
At lunch one day last week, we were talking about which country is ranked highest in the happiness index.
Last week was our first weigh in for the BCLC weight loss challenge. 3 people lost weight (I was one of them!) – everyone else either gained or weighs the same. There are eight people taking place in the weight loss challenge and all of us have different methods of reaching our individual goals.
I have always believed that there are two things a lady does not share: age and weight. So you can imagine my hesitation when BCLC decided to do a second edition to the department-wide weight loss challenge...a challenge that requires weekly weigh-ins in front of the whole department!
