My dad is trying to name his new English Setter. My husband and siblings suggested "Timber," "Fire" and "Look Out." (Go ahead--yell for your imaginary dog using those names and see how awesome they are.) But my dad is more of a traditionalist. He had a name picked out, but then I said if I ever had a boy (human, not dog), I might want to use that name. I'm cool with having a son named after an English Setter, but my dad thought maybe he wouldn't want to call for his dog and have his grandson come running too, so he's still working on finding a name.

But this post isn't about my dad's dog. It's about our incredible holiday weight loss contest! I feel like our contest needs a name. How is it supposed to feel comfortable with its peers if it doesn't have a name? I want our contest to be properly socialized. Wanna help?
Here are some ideas (let me know what you think):
*Lose Your Bowl Full of Jelly (reference to The Night Before Christmas, you know)
*Be Thinner on Christmas Than You Were 20 Days Earlier!
*Put Down the Fruitcake
*Big Fat Holiday Loser
*Ho Ho Ho...We're Fat
*Santa's Stuck in the Chimney and So Am I
*Help! I Can't See My Feet!
Sara likes The UC or The Unnamed Contest.
Any other suggestions?
On a semi-related note, if I ever have another daughter (or get a really awesome dog), I'm totally naming her Amy Lawson.
Don't forget...the contest begins tomorrow! Dig out that scale.
