So, yesterday, I'm minding my own beeswax and I suddenly get this message that Kimmer aka Heidi Diaz has started a new contest on her soon-to-be-gone diet website, Kimkins.
It's a "Pinky Swear" contest. Say what? The only time I recall doing a "pinky swear" was when I was in Grade 6.
Here's Kimmer's little challenge:
"Re: Announcing Kimmer's Pinky Swear Challenge...
OK ladies, get ready! I'm starting a list of names here: Kimkins and then Friday, February 1 I'm going to add everyone's starting weights. It's only 29 days, we can do it! I've got 2 things messing me up cheat-wise and those will be nailed shut!
Pinky Swear "

And take a load of Kimmer's new avatar:
Ewww, there's just something about that avatar that gives me the willies.
For those who may have no clue what a "pinky swear" is, here's Wikipedia's definition:
To pinky swear (in some regions referred to as the pinky promise) is when two people entwine their pinky fingers—and then kiss the back of their hands most commonly of the same respective hands—to signify that a promise has been made. The kiss is not necessary in all parts of America. Traditionally, the pinky swear is considered binding and tantamount to a handshake in terms of sealing a deal. The pinky swear originally indicated that the person who breaks the promise must cut off their pinky finger."
In modern times, pinky swearing is a more informal way of sealing a promise. It is most common among school-age children and close friends. The pinky swear signifies a promise that cannot be broken or counteracted by the crossing of fingers, the "I take it back" or any other trickery."
Kimmer, I gotta tell 'ya, this whole "pinky swear" thing is creepy. That's something kids in elementary school and playgrounds do, not some middle-age diet huckster.
And let's be honest, Kimmer (I know, I know, that's hard for you), you haven't lost a pound since you've started these weight-loss challenges on the front page of Kimkins, have you?
Your own Kimkins starvation diet is a bitch, no? So how on earth do you expect your members to follow it when you can't even do it yourself?
Now, what are you going to do on February 29th when the scale hasn't moved? Fudge your weight-loss numbers one more time?
And I have a suggestion for you about your comment in your post...
"I've got 2 things messing me up cheat-wise and those will be nailed shut!"
How about nailing that big yap of yours shut? That way, it will be harder for you to down those two things that are causing your amazing weight stall (i.e. Captain Morgan and Diet Coke). That'll work.
And you know, of course, if you're found out, this is your punishment...
"...the person who breaks the promise must cut off their pinky finger."
Hey, Kimmer, at least you'll drop a few ounces losing that finger, no? Might be worth it.
