Climbing UP

Friday, August 17, 2012

I have been so inspired by my fellow co-leader, teammate & friend, Pixie who has been "streaking" for well over 160 days & counting. Her hard work has really paid off because not only has she lost a whopping 65 lbs, she looks fantastic. I have noticed in her pictures not just her loss, but a brighter spirit that just shines through.

Instead of streaking, I am climbing. Yesterday I stayed within my calorie range and not only mowed the lawn, but finally got back on our treadmill & walked for 30 minutes!

So I am officially climbing up the mountain & have 1 day down! Although I am not going to catch Pixie, I am now going to move forward with her! Make no mistake, I am scared to death of heights so you'll never find me on the side of a real mountain, but virtually I am climbing a bigger challenge, my weight loss mountain.

(Thank you all for your kind words & support on my "The Climb" blog. It means bunches to me & has inspired my blog today!)
