OK … here’s the deal. I need to take my health more seriously! My son (9 years old) recently read a recent guest post on the site called The Youth Pastor Diet and said he wanted to become a youth pastor so he could only eat junk food like dad. After laughing and telling him “no” I realized I need to make a change.

Maybe you do, too: this picture of the Youth Pastor Diet from Group Magazine a few months back isn’t too far off from my actual diet.

So tomorrow that all changes. I picked up the domain name YouthPastorDiet.com and am going to challenge you to a Weight Loss War from December 1, 2012 until the Simply Youth Ministry Conference (March 1, 2013). Lots to play for – here’s the scoop:

  • Become a member on WeightLossWars.com ($10 – goes to them)
  • Join the Youth Pastor Diet Competition ($20 – pooled together for the Top 3 losers)
  • Lose weight! Anything short of medical procedures goes
  • Track your progress weekly on the site
  • Most lbs down wins (there isn’t an option for percentage, sorry)
  • HUGE prize announcements Monday morning

So you basically have to put up $30 to get in – but it could change your life. Who’s in?
