Hey, Firecrackers!

Thursday, June 07, 2012

Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the Summer 5% Challenge:

I wasn't sure I was going to sign up this time around, because of travel plans, but I decided to got for it. The team enthusiasm and accountability have really helped me in the past and, although I didn't lost my 5% last time like I did last summer, I know that being on the team really helped keep me from gaining during these past few super-stressful months.

My goal is to get down to 63.5 kilos by the start of the challenge - I'm about two pounds away. That means that losing 5% during the challenge will take me almost all the way down to 60, the top of my goal range. Wouldn't that be awesome?

Anyway, come along for the ride. I'm a Firecracker, but I'm sure you'll have fun on any of the teams.

    Would love to join the Firecrackers again but .... I can't walk yet. Perhaps in the Fall I'll be able to join in again.

    Zella, I'm glad you decided to join - Woohoo to being able to see the top of your range! I did a little math and am in about the same spot - lose that 5% and I'll be able to almost be there!

    That 26h sounds a lot to spend in front of the screen!
    I hope you don't need your laptop to freeze to prevent molding of your eyes...

    I signed up for the summer challenge, too. This extra accountability and team spirit do make a difference!
