Fall 5% Challenge: Lose 5% of current weight, which means my goal this challenge is to lose
One pound a week - slow but sure. Keep on keepin' on ... 60 minutes a day of exercise, clean and healthy eating. I MUST learn to not binge eat when I'm tired or stressed. "If it isn't hunger, then FOOD won't fix it."
Retired. Love gardening, cooking and music. Getting out for my four-mile daily walks is a joy in the sunshine. Not so much joy in cold weather! Three grandkids nearby, so they are here often. Those are times I find it hard to stay on track.
This is my 5th challenge and I found the first three to be SO helpful in my weight loss journey that I'm now hooked. Thank you Spark People!

"Here's to US. Here's to ordering a salad when you really wanted a burger. Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class. Here's to drinking more water than you thought was humanly possible. Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical. Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend. Here's to saying goodbye to the old you & falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you, the YOU that you really are, the YOU that you are becoming. Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale & seeing no changes BUT putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways. Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance & sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga classes & falling down & getting back up - - -And here's to doing it all over again tomorrow." - - Unknown - -
