I have been a big fan of the Biggest Loser series, since the beginning. There is something about watching their struggles and achievements that provides motivation to me to do something for myself. One of the programs that they support, which helps to motivate many to live healthier lives is the Pound For Pound Challenge. In addition to promoting healthier lives, it also has made an impact in the community. Last year, the Pound for Pound Challenge helped Feeding America deliver more than 3.5 million pounds of food to local food banks.
As part of the Pound for Pound Challenge, 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. You can help them in reaching this goal - visit the Pound for Pound Challenge to make your pledge to lose weight and to find tools to change your life for the better. It is free, easy and only takes a minute to make a change that can not only help you, but help the hungry in your local community. Through June 30, 2010, for every pound you pledge to lose, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 14¢ to Feeding America® — enough to deliver one pound of groceries to a local food bank. I'm making a pledge to lose the 13.5# I still am wanting to lose to reach my goal.
- As the official supplier of the Biggest Loser Ranch and partner of the Pound for Pound Challenge, the Kroger Family of Stores wants to help you achieve your goals. If you’re a fan of the Biggest Loser, you may have seen several great General Mills products featured on the show. These products, including Yoplait Greek yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios, are available at your local Kroger Family of Stores and can help you stick to your weight management plan.
