Today is day ONE!

Today is day 185 of my streak!

I've been in a challenge called the Pound-a-thon, where everyone "pledges" a number of pounds to lose during the 3 week challenge. I pledged 7 lbs, and I'll be weighing myself on Monday to see if I reached my pledge goal. I have been on track with my eating and exercising, so I should at least get close to my goal, even if I don't reach it.

Speaking of pledges, I am making a pledge to myself right now; I am going to make September my HEALTHIEST month of the year so far! A pledge is a solemn promise, and this promise to myself is one that I am definitely going to keep.




Today is day ONE of my new streak! Yes, I'm going to keep my original streak going, but I'm going to have a secondary one, just for this month. My original streak is to stay in my calorie range and to exercise every day. My secondary streak is to do my BEST every day to get healthier!

I am not expecting perfection from myself. I know there will be times when I will make an unhealthy choice. But as long as I just keep TRYING to make each day as healthy as possible, I know I will succeed, and I will see progress.



To myself, I pledge to do as much as I can each day to be healthy. I pledge to avoid processed and junk food as much as possible, and to eat REAL food. I pledge to exercise every day, and to put my best effort into it. I know some days will be better than others, but I will give it the best that I am able to each day. I pledge to weigh and measure my food, and to drink my water. I pledge to move more and sit less. I pledge to make my health a priority!



Would anyone like to join me on making September our healthiest month of the year so far? Its always easier with the support of friends!

  good luck and although i can't join you in your pledge to make sept. my healthiest month, I will pledge to get a handle on the out of control binge emotional eating I have been doing for the last month. I have gained about 7 lbs. after successfully losing 63lbs. I have been completely out of control and overwhelmed by many emotional issues. I am trying to stop the binging and get a handle on my eating. So this is my pledge - to stop my binging and get back on track. Thanks and oh yea - i'm a pixie too! Pixiechic1.
