Weight Loss Challenge and GIVEAWAY!!

I've participated in the Soul Cyster Weight Loss Challenge on multiple occasions. I've even won once. And I'm ready to get back in it. So much so that I'm also volunteering to help run it. I'm responsible for creating some of the fitness challenges.

I'm really excited about this for a few reasons. First, the format of the challenge has changed. Previously it has been a 3 month challenge, and it goes great for the first month, but activity starts to decline in months two and three. In order to keep everyone going and excited, it's being changed to last just 6 weeks. Instead of weigh-ins every two weeks, there will only be 3 weigh-ins total. The starting weight, mid-weight and end weight. The fitness challenges are going to build on themselves, progressively getting harder. There will be a lot of different options in regards to exercise, including yoga, cardio and circuit training.

The participants of the challenge have access to a private facebook group to chat with other members, and we encourage everyone to use it to give and receive support. The challenge is open to anyone with PCOS whose BMI is above the normal range. To go along with the shorter length of time, the cost has been reduced to $6. All of the entry fees (minus paypal fees) are split between our winners. So for $6 dollars, we provide you with exercise suggestions, a group of women who want to succeed as much as you do, and cash prizes!

Sounds fun, right? It is :) And to prove it, I'm going to pay 2 lucky people's entry fees. Have I enticed you enough yet?

Here's how you can enter to win:
1) Comment below and tell me why you want to join the challenge.
2) Like the SCWLC facebook page and say I (Lynne) sent you. Then come back here and tell me you did it.
3) Subscribe to my blog using the Google Followers or the Subscribe by Email sections on the right hand side of my blog (and comment below to say you did it).

For all entries, please provide your name and an email address that I can reach you at, otherwise I won't be able to congratulate you! I look forward to losing weight with you!

This giveaway ends on Friday, June 21. The challenge begins on July 1st and lasts for 6 weeks.


  1. I have never done a weight loss challenge and I am interested in joining one but have overall been unsure. I have read your posts and it has inspired me to want and try. I need a group to help me reach the goals and hod me accountable lol. Thanks Samara Hairfied

  2. I have struggled with my weight and pcos for many years. I am hoping to find this to be the thing that kicks me in the butt and motivates me to just do it. I have done the above tasks. Following via Carrie Bronk email is carrie.bronk @
