I agree, DELCIE - you are so right. Women are so good at being nurturers of others, we just need to learn to do a better job of nurturing ourselves.

I think it's amazing how we as women manange to have time for EVERYONE, but ourselves. I say schedule your workouts (or some private time) and stick to it. You wouldn't reschedule your doc's appointment, would you? Don't reschedule your work out time.

Delcie,

That's a great suggestion. Some of us do have to plan for ourselves. I, especially, have to do this on Wednesdays and Thursdays due to church activities. I have to schedule times of when I am going to workout on those days!

Thanks for the suggestion! Keep them coming!

Here's a little something that I've started. At the beginning of the week, I pull out my day planner and schedule my workouts. I set a time and exercise. This really seems to help me stay focused on getting in my workouts. I don't always follow my planned exercises, but I do manange to do something. This might help some of you with your workouts.

Here are some suggestions from 2 of our WOAM:

My suggestion is that we pair up.. set a challenge of 1 month for 5 lbs.. and support one another one on one.. see how it goes.. moral support.. peer pressure.. which team will lose the weight..

Next year I need to see more on motivation. How to stay the course after losing a few pounds, What are reasonable goal setting long term and short term for those who need to lose a lot of weight like me 50lbs.

Ladies, Please keep the suggestions coming. This can only help us to lose the weight we need to lose as well as continue to stay motivated and encouraged.

Sincerely,

Steph

One of the word games is word association where one person posts a word and another person posts a word related to it and it goes on from there. We also do the movie game, and celebrity name game (as you have probably guessed, I love playing all kinds of games).

Ladies,

We are embarking on a new year in a few weeks. Can you believe it? 2008 will be here before we know it. I really want to make this the most exciting year for us as a group. Let me know what you would like to see next year! Let me know if you have any ideas on how to challenge and motivate the team! My goal is to come up with challenges that will make us the healthiest we've ever been. So, please post your suggestions or ideas in order for us to be the best we can be in the "health" department.

Sincerely,

Steph

Hi Steph,

I'm sorry I haven't been around at all. Its been a rough summer for me and all my energy has gone in to work issues. Those finally all got resolved last week. 2 weeks ago, I did go back to WW meetings, just for the structure. I'm definetly interested in a shorter challenge.

Thanks for your leadership!

PTCRUIZIN52 - You're right, it is hard sometimes to get back into the swing of an exercise routine or proper eating routine when you've been away from it for a while. For me that's when a partner is of the greatest value, especially if its someone who is truly committed to helping you succeed.

Once again, Ladies,

I thank each of you for your suggestions and please keep them coming. I need to hear from each of you, because I do care about our success on this weight loss journey. Our challenges will be shorter in length, because I do not like it when people drop out. I will keep our challenges at most a month long.

Ladies, let me know what type of challenges would you like to see as well.

I want to start by saying that I am sorry that I have not done a better job on this challenge. It is unfair to those that put so much into it. I started out doing good, but then went away for a week. It was hard to get back at it. I think that I just was burnt out. I was trying to do to much. I have discovered that I need to limit my focus to one, maybe two challenges at once. I am ready and need a new challenge for October. It is harder for me to slack off when I have team members counting on me.

I was a very active participant in the last challenge, and thought I would do the 100 days, but my summer has been very hectic. The start of the challenge we were on a cruise and I did not connect for about 10 days. It gets hard to catch up when that happens. I agree with what others have suggested - Shorter, team oriented challenges.

I also find it hard to come up with personal challenge, which may have been one more reason I had a harder time being involved in this challenge..

I got a little discouraged with people dropping out too but I also think shorter challenges help build confidence moreso than the longer ones, especially for me. I didnt get into the 100-day challenge because of issues with my knee, which limits me in the things I can do right now. I agree 200% though that Steph is an absolutely FABULOUS leader, she really cares about the team members and is very encouraging.And like you, Jill, I do so much better with a buddy - its way too easy to get frustrated, to find excuses, and to give up when you're trying to do it alone. Hang in there, though - this is a wonderful group to be a part of!

Jill,

I completely hear what you are saying and I truly thank you for expressing your opinion as well as your suggestion.

Cheryl,

Thanks for opting to be Jill's virtual buddy. Sometimes having the support does make it easier. I have an idea for October's challenge, where the two of you could definitely be partners.

Thanks to you both for sharing. I am taking every idea under serious consideration!

Thanks for helping me to make Women on a Mission a great asset for us to use in this weight loss journey.

Wow Jill,

That was put so well. I'm sorry that you felt that way, and Stevie is a great team leader. Her challenges always push you to the next level. Maybe you need to have a virtual buddy. I too dropped out of one of the challenges due to other members not fully being motivated, but like I said Stevie is a great leader. If you like we can be buddies for the next challenge.

I would like to do the walking challenge again for September if your taking suggestions.

Hi Stevie,

Thanks for polling the group's opinions. It really helps me to feel like an integral part of a team. I just wanted to let you know why I opted out of the 100-day challenge. I was new to the program earlier this year and had a great time with my first WOAM challenge - there were four teams with great leaders (the challenge had to do with number of miles/steps per day) and as some dropped off and disappeared during the month, we were able to pick up the slack to balance it out. This was really fun! The challenge after that was a two-month challenge with teams of three. My team was working hard in the beginning but began dropping off before the first month even ended. Both of my teammates had to leave for personal reasons before the challenge ended. It was hard for me to recover. And then when you announced the 100-day challenge, I backed out. Without the support of some kind of team leader I had little faith of making it to the end. Especially for women new to the program, I think challenges shorter in length are better at inspiring confidence. It is less intimidating and easier to finish strong. And after completing a challenge, it is much easier to head into another one with spirits high, rather than losing steam and dropping out of a longer challenge. So, if there are more shorter challnges in larger teams with some great team leaders, I think we will all benefit.

Thanks for the opportunity to share my input. You are amazing and are doing a great job of holding such a large and diverse group of women together. See you back on the boards for the next one.

Thanks!
