My mantra this challenge is "NO MORE EXCUSES"

I am prepared to get off my behind and exercise.

I am prepared to say no to big portions.

I will control evening snacking by planning ahead.

I will seek help from my team mates and the 5% challenge community.

I will find ways to enjoy life with a balanced diet.

The word I need to master this challenge is CONSISTENCY

2016 is my year to reach my goal. It is one day, one meal, one workout at a time. I am ready.

    Thank you for the lovely goodie and nice comment on my Spark Page. What I have found is that if I veer away from Spark People, my weight goes up because I am not tallying my food and exercises. It's a big no-no for me now. Although I have not yet reached my ultimate goal, I am continuing on the journey because I will reach it eventually. Many emoticon
