10 Reasons to Lose 10 Pounds

By entering Project 10 you not only have the opportunity to win $1,000 every week and receive an ‘i LOST it’ t-shirt, but most importantly you have the opportunity to better your life and overall health. Here are 10 reasons to lose 10 pounds on the Body by Vi Challenge.

  1. 1. BETTER SLEEP – Losing 10 lbs. can widen your windpipe so you won’t snore like a lawnmower
  2. 2. BETTER SEX – Losing weight can spice up your sex life big time! Erectile Dysfunction is literally a downer—and it’s a problem for 80% of overweight/obese men. YES, 80%!
  3. 3. MORE SELF CONFIDENCE – Just wait ‘til you see what happens when you start loving what’s in the mirror
  4. 4. MORE ENERGY – When your body is healthy, it radiates energy. Imagine how happy your kids would be to play with you longer!
  5. 5. BETTER MOOD – When you’re happier with yourself, you’re happier with life. And wouldn’t that make your Significant Other happy!?
  6. 6. HEALTH – Losing weight reduces your risk of life-threatening illnesses such as diabetes
  7. 7. AGILITY – You’ll improve your mobility when you drop weight, putting less pressure on your joints and making it easier to exercise. I know you want less pain every day!
  8. 8. BRAIN – Tests have shown that overweight people score lower on memory tests. Don’t you want to remember stuff?
  9. 9. PREGNANCY – Excess weight can alter hormones making it difficult for women to get pregnant
  10. 10. MONEY – Research has shown that people who weigh more earn up to $10,000 less per year than their co-workers. Super unfair – If you’re earning $10K less, let it be because you’re not that great at your job!

Sometimes you just have to dare to risk public criticism!

I have made it my goal to help the Mobile DJ and Event Industry lose 1,000 pounds, including myself!
Several people have commented saying, “You don’t look like I need to lose weight”. Now, while I want to believe that most of the people who said that were only being nice, the fact of the matter is that I have worked hard for several years now trying to hide the truth about my weight.
Knowing that 40 is only a few years around the corner I have come to realize that if I don’t do something about my health and weight I will not be around to enjoy seeing my children get married or holding a grandchild in my arms. I won’t be able to live out the “golden years” I work so hard on now to have.
The first step is to overcome the fear of public criticism and admit I have a problem that needs to be fixed. I have decided to put together series of radical advertisements in hopes to accomplish 2 things:
1. To expose my weight issues to the world in a tactful and respectful way so that others will see that I truly do have some issues to work on. I do not in anyway want to offend anyone and will not say something about another person that I can’t say about myself.
2. To be a leader to others who may be in my very same position I am in and feel like they are alone.
The truth is you are not alone. 1 out of every 3 Mobile DJs is overweight or obese. The statistics are not too much better in the Event Industry as a whole. I hope that by taking the first step others will join me so that we can support and encourage one another to achieve our individual and collective goals together. Just by adding two or three people to your challenge will help you be accountable and increases your odds of success beyond belief.
I want to thank those who have already joined me and welcome any others that would like to be a part of the team. I can promise respect, love and support to every member of this team. Failure will not be an option and we will have a blast together!
