My new & improved goals are:

My 2016 Summer 5% Challenge commitments:

1. Nutrition:
a. Control Portion size and no seconds!

a. At least 30 minutes of cardio exercise every day.
b. Strength training at least 3 days per week.

3. Team participation
a. I will post my exercise and LTGL points daily

    Lunch was great! Thank you! I went to the doctor for the quarterly checkin and my weigh-in was the best yet. 215! That was 1 pound more than my scale yesterday, but I had at least 1 pound of clothes on, so good showing. Made my day!

    Now to keep at it. Think my 5% challenge is really working great and I'm going to keep doing it until I don't have 5% left to lose. Not sure what I'll do then, but I guess we're all in the same boat, right?

    We'll all have to start some kind of a maintenance challenge for the seasons - what fun. I can already think of one challenge to do on that team.

    Okay, back to reality and now.

    Thanks for the SP Goodie lunch today. I really appreciate you. emoticon
