YooHoo!! Returning 5% Challengers!

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

I have a feeling some of you have forgotten something. You must sign up TWICE to actually be a member of the challenge. After you indicated which team you want to be on in the Winter page sign up, you must still go to the Spring 5% Challenge page and join to be considered an official member. Then you can be put on your team.

I don't want anyone to miss out on looking and feeling good for the summer! And on the great fun and comraderie that we have while working toward that goal.

Just a beautiful, WARM memory...

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

OK, so I'm snowed in today and a few of you asked for pictures of my trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, an old fishing village still with cobble-stone streets, made into a tourist town. So here you go, pics of warm temps and some proof that I really did get my daily exercise!

    You are SUCH a cutie patootie! And the weather and the resort look AWESOME...wouldn't it be great to call a place like that home. I love Florida too..there are some sweet little towns that exude charm...Bonita Springs where we live is one of them...but alas NOT during tourist season..then it's bumper to bumper traffic and it annoys me that all the snowbirds buy out the aisles of some of my favorite stores and you CAN'T go out to eat because you just don't feel like waiting an hour and a half fighting the masses. There IS an upside though...all the better for my diet... emoticon right!

    You look positively gorgeous in that last picture! So glad you got to enjoy some nice warm weather - and sorry about the snow. I drove home in a snowstorm last night and it's going to be around 50 today! Mother Nature is definitely having some issues!

Thanks for sharing the photos! emoticon

    Wow..I love that pic of you...and you look so happy! Your hard workouts are paying off..big time!

Glad you had fun. Sad you 're in snow. Spring's on its way...at least that's what the calendar says. (Calendars, like scales, can be the last to know though!) Hope it warms up soon for you!

Thanks for the photos...lovely place to R&R!

Community + incentive = results!

Saturday, March 08, 2014

Even as I'm sitting here listening to the waves lap the shore outside my balcony window, I'm checking on my 5% Challenge team, marveling at their tenacity and fantastic weight loss and vowing that I will not return next week with a weight gain to negate all their efforts.

I'm making sure that I watch my portions even if I am indulging in delights I don't normally have. And I'm in every exercise class they offer.

My commitment to my team gives me the incentive to make better choices. It's a winning combination.

Thanks SP! emoticon

    Lucky girl...what a beautiful world we live in! I'm soooo happy that you are enjoying some beautiful weather...you SO deserve it!

Our Teddy Bear Team is ALWAYS at the forefront of my thinking also. My exercise...my eating plans...all of it is as much...or MORE for the team and our efforts as I'd ever exert for myself. emoticon

Together we ARE stronger...which by the way...is the name of another AWESOME team I'm on...yay spark people...YAY YOU....my darling Teddy bear friend! emoticon

Today will be the completion of my repeat cycle on the FMD. Can you BELIEVE it...I made it! Entirely through the plan TWICE! 56 days of NO alcohol, no caffeine, no dairy and no popcorn...my most beloved and most missed food item.

No I'll stay on Phase 3 which is more lenient and hope to continue losing weight...hope all goes well...wish me luck! emoticon

I've lost my 5% this go round and DON'T want to backslide...yep..you guessed it...for the team! emoticon emoticon
