Harvest a Hottie
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
I joined a challenge in one of my teams called "Harvest a Hottie." The challenge was to lose 8lbs in 4 weeks during the month of October. This is the first challenge that I have committed to during my time on SparkPeople. Notice that I did not say that this was the first challenge that I had joined.
Well, at the end of 4 weeks, I am down 9.1lbs.
This made me really proud. I had a gain during that time period, but I jumped right back in and made it happen. This challenge has me thinking that I may try to take the rest of this journey 4 weeks at a time. Since I am so overweight, 2lbs a week is not really unreasonable.
My slow cooker and Spark Recipes have been my saving grace. I am able to make healthy meals that last a couple of days and take the guess work out of dinner and lunch. I am starting to really embrace this lifestyle. I believe that I can really get it done this time.
