DIY Challenge Entry Form

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My Challenge Name: It's Gonna Be a Hot, Hot Summer!

My Starting Weight: 196

Four Other things I will be measuring during this challenge & their current stats:
1. Waist: 36
2. Hips: 43
3. Thighs: 26
4. Jean size: 14

If I am going to be 100% honest with myself, the reason I am doing this challenge is because I need a swift kick in the butt to get motivated and a little encouragement to keep me going.

I feel like the reason that I have not been progressing as well as I hoped I would be is because I have been having multiple hand surgeries and I get discouraged when I'm not able to do everything I wanted to be doing.

This time, I commit to finishing my challenge because I know that:

I'm scared of going back to the way I was before my journey on Spark.

I want to spend this Summer in as little clothes as I can get away with. It gets in the 100's here and I will wear a bikini!

But I have faith in myself and my determination. I can be incredibly stubborn it's time I used it to my advantage.

And THIS TIME, I will NOT quit, because THIS TIME I will not let myself quit!!!!

My top five non-health related motivations right now are:
1. I want to be a good example to my beautiful daughter who needs a healthy mom.
2. My husband and best friend... I want to blow his mind!
3. I want to wear all those sexy summer dresses and just turn heads.
4. I am trying to start a new career and I want to look good in my career wear.
5. I want to feel good about myself and happy with the way my body looks!!

The best way to motivate me is to encourage me when I'm doing good and kick my booty if I'm slacking.

The best way I can motivate myself is to be patient with myself and not cut myself down. I need to be my biggest fan!

    HI Jessica !!! I loved to see reason #5 turn up to as reason #1 for when we fist do this for ourselves it works even better ! Than add in the others. :) That's been proven. I know as a Mom/wife, you want to "do it for others", but if your doing for "them" its not going to work as well as "you doing for yourself, because you love and care for youself and see the need to take of yoursel first, so then you can take care of them the best as possible." I hope that makes sense hon, as an older woman to a younger woman, who's now working with her GrandD. I had to learn Jessica, I need to do this as said for me, before I can teach Sarah what to do correctly, but seeing what really works than I can teach her. Does that make sense?

I hope your hand is healing well. We both (and MaryAnn) have gone through a rough time with injuries this time around (and others are dealing with chronic illnesses) and so hopefully the summer challenge will see us getting back on our feeties again. I want this cast OFF ! It SHOULD be on July 22nd. That will the 2 month mark ! UGHERS ! So I hope you have rejoined the Dawgs! Diane
