My 39-Day Challenge

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Why 39? Why not 30 or a month, or 3 months? I chose 39 because that will take me all the way through April, beginning with today. And I chose today because there is no time like the present. Now is the time, procrastination is just another excuse.

At this point I don't know what changes I can make that will make the difference between losing and maintaining. But each time I'm faced with eating some food that is pure pleasure and nothing healthy about it, I will remember this challenge to myself. Each time I say I'm too tired, or my back hurts, or it's too late to take that walk with my dog, I will remember this challenge.

I do not have a number picked out to strive for, but anything lower than my starting point will be a winner. Five pounds gone would make me a believer! Ten pounds would put me on cloud 9. So let's get started on this Personal Challenge and see where it takes us. The sky is the limit!

    Challenges don't work for me. As soon as I join one, I get sick and can't do whatever the goal activity is. I'm glad they work for you, though.

    I'm reading a book by Eric Berg, The 7 Principles of Fat Burning. He said For years people have been told to lose weight to be healthy. The truth is, you need to get healthy to lose weight. Unfortunately, I think there is too much emphasis in SP to lose weight and not enough on getting healthy. It's a marvelous book that talks about the glands and hormones that affect weight loss. Good luck.
