Pound for Pound

I would like you all to notice that little button over there on the top right of my sidebar.  For the second year in a row I am participating in the Pound for Pound Challenge.  For those that are unaware, the Pound for Pound Challenge is sponsored by NBC and The Biggest Loser.  For every pound of weight loss you pledge to lose, they'll donate a pound of food to YOUR local food bank.  That's right.  Your local food bank.  When you sign up they match you with food banks in your zip code, and you can pick the one (if you have more than one) that you would like your donations to go to.  It's completely on the honor system, and if you have no weight to lose but would still like to make a difference, you can pledge to maintain your current weight, which is equivalent to a 5 pound donation.  So there isn't any reason someone can't help out.  Help your community by helping yourself.  It's so easy and makes such a difference.
