I am signed up for this challenge, and am at the end of the fall 5% challenge. And although I didn't lose, but gained , I "met" some GREAT people, found a lot of motivation, and started seeing some consistency in some lifestyle changes. I have GOT to start losing weight.
So, for the winter challenge, I really hope to actually lose 5% this time (which would be 13-14 pounds). I want to start seeing consistency in working out. I want to continue to see improvements in my blood sugars. I want this because I want to live a long healthy life. Mostly for my daughter. My biggest anxiety in life is what will become of her when my husband and I are gone. She has Down syndrome, and I do feel she will be very independent in life, the reality of it is she will still need someone to look out for her. We don't have a lot of friends, the only family we are close too lives 20 hours away, and because of my health problems now we can't have more children. So it's just us. I worry so much about her.
But not to be a downer...I actually feel good most days despite my health concerns, and I don't really have a negative self image, but I KNOW I need to be HEALTHY! So, let's go teddy bears, you guys kept me going the last challenge, we can do it again!!!
