My overall goal is to lose 45 lbs but my short term goals are to learn how to eat healthier and stay motivated to keep going and not go back to old habits.
I am currently trying to eat healthier and walk two miles a day during the week.
I am from a small town in Iowa and work with my husband at the family business.
Besides being the mother of two beautiful daughters, our family is rounded out with two dogs who go to work with us every day. Cole is a 3 yr old black Lab and Charlie (Sr. Charles) is a 2 yr Cavachon.
Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in Sept. The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messa geboard.asp?imboard=8&imparent=2090696 5&strViewThisPage=25
