I took on a 12 week weightloss challenge at my local ladies fitness club and WON! ...in more ways than one.
It all started so simply with 5 bucks and set your own goal which I did at losing 15 lbs in 12 weeks. Thought okay so I get my $5 back if I meet my goal so how big could the overall pot be without knowing how many girls would join??? Pay $1 for each pound gained per week and $5 if you miss a weigh in. Greatest percentage of weight lost wins. That was me today - $155!
But the biggest win was reaching my goal! I lost 16 lbs. what????
I have always been afraid to say I have a goal because what if? :( I did not get there. When I started this whole journey nearly 3 years ago I started out with the fear of failure. I did not want to commit to doing anything for fear that I would not. As I started tracking, exercising, and dropping weight I gained some confidence and realized I was actually doing it without failure. Then came the binge and the fear and the weight gain. But I fought it back and lost what I put on. I did that several times. I am still somewhat afraid of backsliding but I am over the "fear." I know I can do this. It's takes a concentrated effort maybe forever but I can do it.
This little milestone is reassurance that I can.
And with that moo lay I think I will invest in some essential oils and a massage!
