I’ve been an on again, off again fan of the biggest loser for a while now.  I find myself completely drawn in to the stories of the contestants and the amazing weight loses they achieve.  Not only do I find their stories and struggles inspiring I always feel compelled to do more after watching an episode…so I am with the Kroger Pound for Pound Challenge!  image
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.”  Helping these amazing sponsors reach their goal is easy…through June 30th you can visit the Pound For Pound website and make a pledge to lose weight (and help out your local food bank in the process!).  For every pound you pledge to lose, the Pound for Pound Challenge will donate 14 cents to Feeding America enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank. 
Since I find myself so inspired by the biggest loser and since this is such a great cause I decided to pledge to lose weight along with millions of others!  So I know you want to know how much I pledged to lose and how I plan to lose it…right?  Well thanks to Kroger (the official supplier of the Biggest Loser Ranch and partner for the Pound for Pound Challenge) I will be purchasing some of the General Mills products featured on the show with the $30 Kroger Gift Cards they provided to me as participation in this campaign.  The products, including Yoplait Greek yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios, are available at local Kroger stores and will be a huge factor in helping me stick to my weight lose goals.  I’m really excited about losing the weight and being part of such an awesome cause!
Help Out:  I really want to urge all of you to go over to the Pound for Pound website and pledge to lose and help your local food bank!  It’s such a quick and easy way to help those in need!
Guess what?  One lucky MIBR reader is going to win a $30 gift card to the Kroger family of stores (including; Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillon's, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy)!
