Gearing up for the 5% Fall Challenge to start Sept. 24th! It's been an interesting summer.

So now the 5% Summer Challenge starts! Not sure why I signed up, except that I like the team I'm on. They're a pretty active, positive bunch. I've been at this for 9 years apparently and I'm at a higher weight than when I started. I will take stock of just what I'm doing and what I did when I lost the original weight and get this taken care of! It's just one of those small annoyances that you CAN live with, but would rather NOT!

5% Winter & Spring Challenges weren't much better!

5% Fall Challenge was a TOTAL failure! I gained even more! Same goals for the Winter round; just keep pluggin' away!

5% Fall Challenge starts Sept. 26th!
I've continued to gain for the last couple years but I've upped the exercise the last month and am getting a handle on the excess calories. Looking to lose 7 - 10 pounds in 8 weeks!

Well, here it is a new year! I've been saying for the last 2 years that THIS would be my year and all I've done is gain weight.
Tom and I have spent the last year moving and getting him fixed up and, 3 surgeries later, we're ready to have a great year. Plans for this year include 2 trips to Iowa to see his only grandchild and one trip to WY to visit with some of my family. I WILL lose the weight this year.

I've been a member of Spark for several years and it's all sinking in, slowly. I'm getting much better at portion control and only eating when I'm hungry. Also making sure that I don't keep a lot of snack food in the house. It's certainly a lifestyle change for the better.

Update 3/22/14
Finally found a new job! Not really where I want to be, but definitely better than where I was. I'm currently driving 50 miles one-way to work but trying to find a house to rent or get a loan to buy one closer.
I've continued to gain because I just can't seem to stay off the 'liquid calories' (beer, energy drink, and Coke). Getting better though!

    emoticon Happy "apple" eating, Lisa! We're going rock this Fall Challenge, I just know it. Probably should leave that bread on the side of the apple alone, though, huh! Or pretend it's whole wheat :)
