I joined a GameOn challenge at work. If you're not familiar with GameOn, it's a healthy lifestyle/diet challenge that you play for several weeks at a time. You're on a team, and they are counting on you to earn your daily and weekly points for diet, exercise, communicating with teammates and opponents, getting enough sleep, and so forth. It makes you accountable and it's a lot of fun. Check out thegameondiet.com. The book The GameOn Diet is a must-read, too. Check it out!

In my OMAT team, we pick one reasonable and reachable goal for each month and work on that small goal for a whole month. By the time the month is done, you've now broken an old habit and created a new one! I've been doing this since September 2013 and it's the one thing that helped me finally budge the scale!
Here the name of our team if you are interested: My OMAT Challenge (One Month At A Time)
I could never do a diet diary until I decided to make my weight loss journey something I could share and inspire others with. So I started typing everything every day...how I felt, what I ate, what recipes I found. It motivated me to think I might help someone else one day who feels fat and hopeless. I feel so much more empowered and I am becoming my own weight loss expert! 58

I no longer can use the excuse of bad weather for not going on my 30 minute daily walk. Leslie's walk dvd's are perfect for beginners to advanced walkers. You can choose how many miles to walk whether you want a quick 1 mile 15 minute workout or the full 5 miles, which is great for a Saturday or Sunday morning routine!
Beginning January 1 2013 there is a one mile a day walk challenge! log on to walkathome.com
