Campaign Healthy Life - Missions Update

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Current Status - All systems are go - Exercising, eating right and in good frame of mind. Lose 2 Win team is on fire (small group of Sparkers really motivated).

Mission 1 was to lose 11 pounds in January and develop good habits - Accomplished.

Mission 2 was to lose 18 pounds by April. - Accomplished officially tomorrow weigh in. Over a month late but I did it. I was unable to exercise in Feb - mid April due to injury.

Mission 3 was to get in good frame of mind. I try to do some of mission three but not all of it. I did start a grateful thread on Lose2Win and 300 team.

So now here I am - Early May - I have lost 31`pounds and now on scale (Dr. scale only goes up to 350).

My next goal - 340 by June 15 (My Birthday). Keeping it simple!

    Congratulations Paul. You are the man! Setting goals and completing missions leads to success. Please share how you developed good habits. I need some help in that area - especially with the food. Wishing you continued success, and I am proud to be a member of Lose to Win team!

    I love this Paul!! We all have a lot to be grateful for, but sometimes we are blinded by other things to take notice of all the good in our lives.
Good luck on this mission, I think I will join you on the gratitude journal.

Keep up the good work Paul!! We love you. emoticon

    You've reminded me of gratitude. Some of it comes naturally. Some you have to coax. Glenn
