It's 3 weeks into May but I just qualified for this team today. This month I've been upping my exercise as I want to be out of the 150's by my b-day on 6/4 (less than 1 lb to go!) I'm in the 4th and last week of SP's Spring into Shape Bootcamp Challenge and have 7 more days of the 30 Day Shred DVD. I'm making healthy food changes & am seeing the results of a new lifestyle. SP works and if I can do it, anyone can.

My May resolutions are to continue my exercise program and change it up a bit. Five days of cardio and seven days of some exercise even if only for ten minutes. I can do this!!

hello everyone! I've been reading your posts about resolutions for the month of May and I would like to add my own.

I am determined to track my food intake every day and to work outside every day. Of course I made this last resolution at the beginning of the rainiest week ever. Just my luck! However, i have managed to get outside and walk or work in my garden or both just about every day.

I'm new here (not quite finished my first week). I usually start out strong on a diet, then peter out after a couple of weeks or so, finally giving it all up as a bad business within a month. I guess my biggest goal will be to stick with everything for a full month, then move on to the next one!

I reallyreallyreallyreally want to succeed this time losing weight, so maybe that will be incentive enough to keep going!

1) log nutrition daily
2) exercise 30 minutes daily
3) 15 minute purge daily
4) sew 1 bobbin full every day
5) do a good deed daily

August resolutions:
1) Log all my foods daily
2) Exercise 30 minutes every day
3) Ride 200 miles

It's never too late to be what you m

I have a goal of 150 by 6/17. Not on track right now and I'm nursing a sore foot. But--I will continue to do all I can to track my food accurately! And to work out with SOMETHING every day.

My goal is to eat cleaner and complete the food tracker.

I am the definition of insanity but I had an AH HAH moment yesterday when it dawned on me why I am sabotaging my diet.

I also used an American Heart Association worksheet to calculate the number of calories I should be eating to lose these last (and only) 11 pounds.

I reset my long-term goals.

My goal is to continue with cutting out gluten from my diet. It has helped in the last 3 weeks and when I eat it alot I have stomach issues. I am going to up my cardio to 3 x week and continue with my strength training routine.

My focus is going to eat cleaner. When I look at ingredients in boxed or processed foods I am overwhelmed. Most of them I can't even pronounce. What are all those additives (chemicals) doing to our bodies.

Bevpresley usually gets us started on this topic. Here we are at the beginning of another month ---------- WOW are nearly half way through the year. What resolutions are you making for the month?

I always think to myself - nothing will change for me if I dont change . Change is tough and its so much easier to keep doing the same thing - even when you are not seeing the results you are looking for. SO - what are we changing this month------------------- that will bring the changes we want to see and feel?

Im running 20 miles per week and doing strength training ( one hour class at my YMCA at least 2ce per week) trying for 3 times............. and I am bound and determined to eat cleaner and smarter. thats a tough one for me.............. but its what I want and need to change.

I believe weight loss is more about how much you eat - and exercise is more about toning.
