Summer 5% Challenge Sign Up Now & My Update

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Are you looking for a way to get fit, lose weight, and have fun along the way? Check out the Summer 5% Challenge! Team members will work towards losing 5% of their starting weight in 8 weeks by participating in team challenges that focus on exercise & healthy lifestyle habits. Letís have fun, make new friends and get in shape this Summer. Please join us!

OK now a quick update on what I have been doing. In January in Palm Springs I bought a smaller swimsuit in anticipation of losing weight this year, I am now wearing this smaller swimsuit and had to buy a few new clothes.

I stopped losing weight when I left Las Vegas a month ago. I have been on vacation - busy with kids, away from home and no wifi. I wrote down what I was eating and estimating the calories. In the last few days I stopped recording my food. I continue to walk each day a minimum 10 minutes.

Tomorrow I am looking through my May/June blogs to get my list of successful habits and get back on track. I will not gain weight between challenges!

    Excellent! If you can, shift your walking to early in the day to set higher metabolism rate for the day for maximum benefits. Just a strategy. Good luck.

    Actually I lost 4 lbs right after the challenge (must of been water weight), but for some reason I have been unusually hungrier and I don't want to gain back any weight that I lost after the challenge. I would like to start Summer challenge at the lowest weight I've seen in at least 2 years. Here's to us on the Summer Challenge !! emoticon emoticon
