Kroger Pound for Pound Challenge + $30 Gift Card Giveaway

Do you watch The Biggest Loser on NBC?  The contestants weight-loss achievements are so inspiring!  Most people wait for the new year to try to lose weight, but I don’t believe that any date is better than another.  Kroger and General Mills want you to put all your excuses aside, so they have teamed up with The Biggest Loser for the Pound for Pound Challenge!

The Pound for Pound Challenge is a way to encourage you to lose weight and feed your 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.

With a good exercise routine and healthy eating you can pledge to lose at least a few pounds, right?  General Mills offers several healthy eating options like Yoplait Greek Yogurt, Total, and Multigrain Cheerios that you may have even seen featured on the show!

To encourage you to participate in the Pound for Pound Challenge, Kroger and General Mills are giving away a $30 Kroger Gift Card to one of my lucky readers!

The gift card can be used at any of the Kroger family of stores including Kroger, Fred Meyer, Ralph´s, King Soopers, City Market, Dillon’s, Smith´s, Fry´s, QFC, Baker´s, Owen´s, Jay C Food Stores, Hilander, Gerbes, Food4Less, Pay Less Super Markets and Scott´s Food & Pharmacy.

  1. I’ve been a fan of Couponing101 for a long time, so you are already “liked” on Facebook, and I am a subscriber to your emails.

  2. I pledge to lose another 3 lbs by the end of June. I was 248 lbs when my daughter was born on 7/9/09 and I’m now 184.4 and working hard to keep going… hope I can do it!!!

  3. I would like to loose 20 pounds. Its so hard to diet when other members of your family do not want to. It makes cooking two different meals expensive. A gift card would certainly help.

  4. I pledge to lose at least five pounds. I’d like to lose more, but let’s start with an attainable goal.

  5. I signed up to follow you through an email subscription. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  6. I pledged to lose 50 lbs for the pd four pd challenge. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  7. I put 10 pounds. That might be a little ambitious but you never know unless you set a goal and try.

  8. I just recently had a yearly physical and found out that I am three pounds more than my average weight for my height. Therefore, I will commit to losing three pounds. As small as it may seem, I am looking at the big picture. If we all join together each pound will add up. I think this is an awesome program. I truly appreciate all your hard work that you put into Couponing101.com. It is obvious you <3 what you do. Your tenacity is certainly appreciated by many.

  9. I don’t need to lose any weight, but I do need to eat healthier and exercise more. I’m one of those people who is thin no matter what I eat, which is not necessarily a good thing because I don’t exercise much and tend to eat junk food.
    However my father was the same way and eventually became diabetic, a fate I wish to avoid.
