BLC-21 - Lime Green Groovy Geckos
5% Winter to Spring Challenge - Beautiful Butterflies

My goals for this challenge:

- Make each day/week count.
- Lose 10 lbs overall.
- Work on menu planning.
- Aim for those size 8 jeans in your closet.


BLC-20 - Crimson Butterflies
Fall 2012 5% Challenge - Beautiful Butterflies

Straight to the point, my goals for these challenges are to:

- Lose 10-15 lbs
- Finish SP 5k walk/jog program. W1D1 was 09/03/12. (done)
- Actually participate in a 5k. (done)
- Fit into size 8 jeans. Yes that's superficial, but it would be awesome!

What can I say...I'm tired of the yo-yo effect, and the way I feel about myself sometimes. I always start off well but seem to fall back. I am here because I need to make a change in my life. I want to be healthy and feel good about myself.

I just realized the other day that for all the dieting I have done over the years I currently weigh the exact same weight as before my son was born. He is now almost 17. So, 17 years later...absolutely no progress. Sad...
