Onward to becoming healthy

I'm a 50 something trying to lose weight and change my life to be healthy and happy again.


I have started the 5% summer challenge on July 27. This will be the 3rd 5% challenge that I have participated in. I lost weight each time (not 5%) and gained it back (+some). There was just so much to keep up with and to do and I have a hard time spending that much time on the computer every day that I took a break and did not participate in the last one (or maybe 2).

I have started the 5% summer challenge on July 27. This will be the 3rd 5% challenge that I have participated in. I lost weight each time (not 5%) and gained it back (+some). There was just so much to keep up with and to do and I have a hard time spending that much time on the computer every day that I took a break and did not participate in the last one (or maybe 2). I was a starfish in the 2 that I did previously. This time I am a Super Underdog!!!

This is my plan:

I will get in my exercise, either walk, elliptical, swim or a class at my wellness center each day.

I will do the LTGL challenges each day (as long as I am able)

I will choose a live-it plan (I refuse to say diet) and stick with it. I am toying with Weight Watchers (on my own) or a moderate carb program.

Hi there, I see you are on the team for THM, are you following the plan? I'm on the team as well and hoping the team leader will check in and add me as a co-leader as she said she is not following the plan.

I've lost 4 lbs in a week...following this plan.

I have counted calories, points, cut fat, etc. etc. but their plan is out of this world..and I never feel deprived or crave carbs!

Please come by there often, hoping we can change the name as the THM said we can have this team as long as it is clear they are not officially engaged with the team and not affiliated with it...but we can change the name. Here's hoping.
