Fall 2010 5% Community Board

Saturday, September 25, 2010

emoticonFall 2010 5% Community Board begins today. This is a way to aim to lose 5% of your weight. There are over 400 members divided into teams. The team wins points by exercise, activity, and weight loss. Right now, writing a blog is the activity.

So I got to wondering how many people do I know from other SP teams and SP in general are participating. I know from
Dr. Oz Show Fans- Persistant123, Diane2868, LavendarLily, GetFitBfor40, TTenaCity,
NEArkanses Sparkers- Chocmom, DonnaCV,
Readers of The SPark -JuneBug1944, LisaAllGier, Just74, Andrea963
Ohio Buckeye Beauties- Indygirl, Stevo50,
50 Pound Challenge DuffyDyer,
Healthy Arkansas 30B430
I Need Sleep JAS1990
SP Team for Team Leaders-Monakin314
Teachers Learning to Lose- Lola_98Chic

Please tell me who else that I know who is a member of the Fall 2010 5% Community Board Challenge?
And who is a member of the Starfish team that i am on?
I'll be looking for your blogs the next few days.

    I didn't join the fall challenge because I am almost at my goal weight. I don't need to lose 5% of my weight any more. Can you believe it? I plan to stay in touch with my SP friends and my Starfish Team.

    Knowing that I tend to 'hibernate' my enthusiasm for losing weight under the winter layers of clothes, I am SO determined to take Autumn by the horns and keep on losing and moving in readiness to 'reveal' the new me next Spring.
I shall endeavour to do 10000 steps daily.
Keep within my calorie allowance.
Make sure the nutrient balance is a good one. - (No good losing weight but not looking good)
I shall try to smile more through the shorter days. (SAD)
I shall look forward to next year knowing that I shall arrive at my goal sometime in the summer.

emoticon DH was using our computer to do some googling of some information. He doesn't use it much. I had minimized my hot mail. Somehow he opened it and came to tell me all he had deleted over 50 plus. Started telling me what, and I said you had my email up. Didn't you log into yours? No, it all looked different so I found one down below. So Dear Spark Friends, if you contacted me, and I don't reply, it's gone and I'm sorry...... emoticon

emoticonSome how he even got the pictures I had saved of GD wedding in my Photo folder, back up into my inbox. Microsoft needs him as a tester. And he's not even excited....but guess I am enough for both.... emoticon And yes I did react by emoticon

Big idea is in marriage is to be able to pull together in a crisis, even a little crisis. We will. emoticon And I will log off, even if he hasn't used it in over a month.

    If worst comes to worst, perhaps try a one day system restore, that may work.

TEAM FORUM FALL 2010 5% Community Board

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

5% Weight Loss challenge begins Sept. 25. This is a team activity, so your participation helps your team. Clink the link if you are interested in participating.

1) We all weigh in, with our own home team team, on the first day of the challenge and then every Saturday over the course of the challenge. I am on the Starfish team.

2) It's called a 5% challenge since the majority of us try to lose 5% of our weigh-in weight. Some don't have that much to lose, others are at maintenance and just do it with us for fun,

3) To keep it fun, and to help with motivation, there will be challenges as we go along. Sometimes it's a food challenge (veggies, water or whatever) and exercise.

4) Then, throughout the challenge, we encourage others, post our successes along with our "not so stellar" moments.
