Mistakes, I've made a few! I think almost anyone who has fought "the battle of the bulge" can tell you that it is almost NEVER a "success-only" journey. We lose, we gain, we lose again, we gain again, lather, rinse, repeat!

I have been there, done that, bought the t-shirts in sizes ranging from M - XXL!

Thankfully I have not regained all the weight I lost, and thankfully I feel ready to start again. Not necessarily "gung-ho, ready to kick butt and take names" ready, but ready enough that yesterday I got myself to the grocery store and stocked up on all the good things I know my body needs.

In the words of Matthew West:
It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one


Member Since: 10/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 41,453

My Goals:
Immediate (between now and July 1, 2017): get back in the habit of eating right and moving my body before the 5% summer challenge starts on 7/1/17.
Short Term (July 1, 2017 - August 26, 2017): Participate in 5% Summer Challenge and lose at least 5% of my body weight during that 8 week time frame.
Continuing (August 26, 2017 and forward): Focus on "the next 10 pounds" or if participating in a 5% challenge "the next 5%" repeatedly until my long term goal is reached.
Long Term (By July 1, 2018): Reach a goal weight of 145 pounds.



My Program:
My Nutrition Commitment for the Summer 5% Challenge: Use the nutrition tracker at least 6 days per week and stay in my calorie range at least 5 days per week. This sounds a bit lax, but I know myself well enough to know if I'm too strict I end up beating myself up. The goal is PROGRESS, not PERFECTION! I will also aim for any other goals the challenge includes in the LTGL weekly challenges.
Exercise - start with a goal of at least 15 minutes per day 5 days per week and work up from there with plans up this to a minimum of 1 hour per day at least 5 days per week. For the Summer 5% Challenge my fitness goal will be a minimum of 30 minutes per day at least 4 days per week.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
