Dear Slender Seekers,

If you know anything about this Weight Loss & Wellness Coach you know that I love nothing more than encouraging and motivating folks to be the best version of themselves that they can be and that I think a great way to do that is to present a challenge that not only inspires you to do so but rewards you for doing so as well.

Setting SMART Goals and building your personal integrity by keeping the promises you make to yourself is one of the most handy tools I can put in a client’s weight loss journey tool box and my dear friend over at Bariatric Foodie has something going on that goes along with this concept.

Instead of me telling you all about it I thought I’d ask the author of one if the most amazing food inspired weight loss websites out there to do it herself. Without further whoop dee doo … Heeeere’s Nikki!

NPMy name is Nikki Massie and I am a (GOOD) friend of Pandora’s. I also run a blog called Bariatric Foodie, where folks gather to learn to “play with their food” for weight loss success.

Although my blog’s main audience is people who have had weight loss surgery, we welcome anyone on the path to better health. That’s one reason why I like to do challenges! That’s something I know Pandora and I have in common.

In fact I have a challenge coming up that I’d like to invite you to check out. It’s called The Bariatric Foodie Pledge.

Tell me if you’ve ever experienced this. The new year comes, you make a resolution and work REALLY hard at it for a few weeks…then you run out of steam. The Bariatric Foodie Pledge is designed to keep that fire under you by encouraging you to make healthy goals and hold yourself accountable. Here’s how it works.

Starting February 1st, at the beginning of each week in February you’ll “pledge” a goal. All week-long you’ll work hard on that goal. At the end of the week you’ll be accountable and “check in” by answering a few questions. This all happens at the Bariatric Foodie website.

Everyone who does that each week is entered to win a weekly prize drawing. Everyone who does that all four weeks is eligible to win the “Winner Takes All” grand prize. That’s right, if you win the grand prize you win EVERYTHING that EVERYONE else won the previous four weeks!

What better motivation to work on your most challenging goals. I’d love to see you Slender Seekers participating and winning prizes. Will you join us?

If so, there’s some important information and a quick technology system check you need to do. So visit to check it all out – then get ready to crush your goals and (hopefully) win some prizes.

Hope to see you at the Pledge!
