WEEK 3 - 12/27 to 01/02
What worked for me wasn't last year or the year before that. What really helped me was when I joined SP I had found a "Lose 5lbs a month Club". It was a great team like Team Yellow. It was simple what I did when on this team:

1)Track my food every day

2) If I ate something over my calorie range or in the form of junk, I went to the gym and worked it off (with no gadgets). Go to bed hungry (ie no eating before bed-when I did this, I lost weight)

3) Stick to basics. Stop getting overwhlemed by all that I know and all that I have and just do it.

4) Drink my water every day. I have never had a problem with that. These past few challenges, I have.

5) My goal will be 5 lbs a month and track that progress like I did on that first team.

As Week 3 comes to an end, I will repost the above and see how I did. To help with week 4 blog entry, I will finally put into practice what John kindly sent to me (info on hs smart carbing). I have been carrying around that Canada Post Envelope since he sent it. I need to sit down and incorporate it into my tracker. That and my bodybugg I have had for how long now. Those two items will be up and running next week.

Bonus: New Year~new goal strategy
bonus point is earned if you start a journal.

Start a personal journal. Keep track of your goals for the next 8 weeks, the remainder of the Winter Challenge and lets see by week 10 if you have met any of those goals. You can do this as part of your team, in a personal journal or in a blog. (If you blog, try to blog once a week for the remaining weeks of winter Challenge)
