I am leading the 50+ team and we decided to have a 13-week challenge in which we attempt to lose 13 pounds. I sent an email to all the team members and the response was fantastic! There are about 300 people that want to get in on the challenge. I hope we can all hang in there for the duration. The worst thing any of us can do is quit. Even if we don't shed all 13 pounds, even losing 5-10 would be great. It would be for me, because I'm up 5 pounds! Christmas is NOT a good season for my health and fitness goals! If you would like to get in on this challenge, visit the 50+ team with 50-100 pounds to lose and join. Another great challenge is the Official Jumpstart Fitness Challenge. I joined that one too, and I encourage everyone to join it. I'm sure Coach Nicole has some great ideas for us to try and you get a trophy for finishing the challenge. I've never been one to get in on a challenge, but now I'm in on 2!

I went shopping yesterday. My dad gave me some $ for Christmas and I had a coupon at Sports Authority so I bought some fitness gear. I haven't even taken it out of the box yet, but I have a ball, mat, and stretchy band. I did my Wii Fit Plus today and logged 46 minutes. Fun! I hope that when I shed the 13 pounds, I will be looking and feeling terrific. These tools will help.

Happy New Year, Y'all! I hope to keep on sparking and being your Diet_Friend for another year!

    Thumbs up on the two challenges you've joined! I'll admit I'm a little daunted by the January Jumpstart fitness challenge - but I'm giving it my best effort!
emoticon Happy New Year!
