Fall 5% Challenge

Thursday, September 20, 2012

I have never done a 5% challenge before and am excited to get started. I am also concerned about whether I can do this.

This is a pre-challenge activity, so here goes.

Why do I want to loose weight?
Be healthier.
Get down to a healthy BMI.
I want a stomach that doesn’t bulge.
Get rid of my high cholesterol medicine.
I want to have my picture taken without hiding behind someone.
I want to live life to the fullest.

What do I want to change?
Be more flexible.
Have more energy.
Be stronger.
Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Loose 1 lb a week.
Tame my sweet tooth.

What things will you be able to do in the future with a slimmer healthier body?
Won’t huff and puff so much or not at all.
Have more freedom of movement.
Be able to go and do whatever I want to do.

And list all the OTHER things that you want to change!
I want to be a good example for others
I want to have ONLY things we love and use in our home.

    Great reasons Yvonne and you'll experience more changes than you can even imagine! I know hula hooping wasn't a thought for me 10 years ago! Wearing single digit sizes wasn't either! The healthier you get, the better you feel, the more you do and that transforms you!! You're off to a great start!

    You are well on your road now!!! I joined the 5% summer challenge. It was my first time. I am back for the fall challenge. I found that I did lose some weight, which being close to maintenance was a biggie. But of course, I gained some back. The challenge helps you to keep on track. The weekly weigh ins are good too. You don't want to disappoint the team. Good luck.
