Why should anyone join a challenge? I think that challenges encourage us to go beyond what we think we can do. They also give us a cheering team to encourage us to do more. We find out through messages that we have similar trials and stumbling blocks. We get ideas on how to over come these obstacles. It can be hard to find a way out of our own obstacles but it is easier to help someone else. As we help others we also help ourselves. Holiday time may not be the best time to work on a challenge but it does help me to try to stay on track with the food I eat and exercise. Sure I eat goodies not on my normal eating plan but I am more aware of the goodies I eat and the amount I am eating. Yes there are days that I eat to many carbs and my moods shows that I over did it. I look forward to a break from a challenge but I also look forward to the next challenge that will help keep me accountable and on track.
We are all winners as we progress towards our goals with the help of others
