I decided I did not want to die at 22 years old so I resolved to do everything I could to lose the weight.

Fitness Minutes: 7,383

My Goals:
long term: to get to my goal weight of 150.

short term: to get below 250 pounds again.



My Program:
I am not on any real diet just working on making heathier choices. like baked foods rather than fried and lowfat milk rather than whole milk. I am also utilizing the food planner here on spark to help me plan my meals for the next day to stay within my goals and I always try to stay on the low end of my calorie range that way if something unexpected comes along such as a party, etc.

I am so glad you asked! I did not realize that I had mistyped the web page. It is runthedge.com. Yes, there is a book written by the organizers, I noticed when I went to the website again. But if you go to runthedge.com/2015 then you will go right to the page explaining this year's challenge. Sorry for any frustration!!! But great that you are looking to join the challenge. I am enjoying it!
