Ready to start the 5% Winter Challenge

I just realized that my introduction text was for the 2013 Winter Challenge which began on 2/23/13. The new Winter 5% Challenge, this year, started a month earlier on 1/18/14.
I have always weighed in on a Monday for another team I belonged to. Maybe, I should change it to the Challenge's Saturday weigh-in to avoid confusion. I started the year with 163#, and due to a lovely dinner out, with wine, this past Friday, I had to report 165.5# for our first weigh-in. I was not a happy ...

I have always weighed in on a Monday for another team I belonged to. Maybe, I should change it to the Challenge's Saturday weigh-in to avoid confusion. I started the year with 163#, and due to a lovely dinner out, with wine, this past Friday, I had to report 165.5# for our first weigh-in. I was not a happy camper, but am working hard to lose that extra weight by next Saturday. I am really watching my food intake and work out more than I have in a while. I hope I can keep this up, although, we will be leaving for the CA Desert next week, to spend Feb. and March in the sun (we hope). I hope that playing golf, walking, swimming and strength training, will keep my weight in check, despite eating out more frequently than at home. Wish me luck.
I am looking forward to getting to know all the new members of our Starfish team. Wishing all the 'Starfishies' good luck and perseverance. We can do it!

My Program:
Continue to eat lots of fruit and vegetables. Eat protein 2 - 3 times a day, and work on drinking more water. Work out, almost daily, but no less than 5 days a week.

Personal Information:
I was born and grew up in Germany. Curiosity prompted a visit to the US and I never left. I am married to the love of my life. We have two sons and four grand daughters. In Aug. 2011, I celebrated 50 years in the US. Hard to believe. I had total hip replacement surgery in July 2010. I love walking, skiing, golfing, swimming, and, out of necessity, strength training, to stay as active as I can.
