50 pound challenge

Saturday, July 03, 2010

In January, I joined SP's 50 pound challenge. I failed miserably. But, the ladies on there are so motivating and helpful that I do not feel like a looooooser. Instead, I feel motivated and rejuvenated. I signed up again today for the next 6-month challenge. This time, I will do it. My healthy *ideas* are starting to become habit. I can look at a hamburger and not be tempted. I have all the tools, all the support. This time, I can do it. To lose 50 pounds in 6 months, I have to really focus on things.

The biggest change I'm going to make (which I tried out yesterday) is that I will no longer go out to eat for lunch every day. Our office closes for the lunch hour, so I need to go somewhere each day. Instead of going out for lunch (which is always either Mexican, pizza, pasta, or deli), I will go to the gym (located in my building), and take a sandwich to eat after. This will save me money, gas, time, and will be much healthier. My coworker likes the idea, so she may join me which would help ;)

Happy Fourth to all!

    I'm glad you are on the 50 Pound Challenge too. You are NEVER a loser. Even when you get off track, you can get back on the train to success anytime. We are always here to emoticon you with open arms.

Take it one day at a time, don't set limits you can't obtain. Each day build on the day before..

    Good for you! I wish you much luck on the challenge!

Let me know how the lunch hour idea works out for you. I need to come up with something at work. I am sitting WAY too much of the day. Plus I work 10 hr days!

Wishing you much success in the coming 6 months & w/your lunch hour!

    Good luck with your challenge, I hope you make it! Going to the gym instead of eating out during your lunch hour is a great idea, and think of the money you'll save!

Keep us posted on your progress!
