$5000 Challenge

Thursday, June 06, 2013

We have a challenge at work. I really feel the goal is not healthy and unrealistic. To lose 25% of weight for 5000.00. That would put me at 135. Its not only getting there, but also maintaining. And also the time frame is 3 months. So about 40 pounds to lose. Ugh...I might as well skip it, but at least I can try! So even if I lose say half of that, it would be a major mile stone for me...

    Yes - you can try :) and even though 40 lbs is a big ask (and possibly too rapid a weight loss to keep it off permanently), you personally have everything to gain by taking part and losing some of those 40lbs :)

    My ultimate goal weight is 135 lbs too . I am currently 184 lbs. a month ago i was 200.4 lbs (!!!!). I amesting really well and to be honest whilst i really do want to lose weight and get fitter, just the eating well is making me feel so much better about myself and i feel more positive and empowered.

    So even if you dont officially take up the 50lbs challenge, DO set yourself you own target and work towards it. You are doing it for YOU and YOU are worth it :) emoticon
