Day 1 of 100 Days

Sunday, October 06, 2013

Here I go again, down another path to help me lose weight.
I ran across the book 100 days of weight loss, I was interested. Was this the structure piece I have been needing? I read some of the reviews on Amazon and came away thinking...meh...another $10 for yet another weight loss book.
Later, I read the sample and came across this statement: "do it anyway." I do tons of stuff because I have, laundry, grading 120 tests at a time, but I have never equated that with water, food journaling or exercise. I got up and rode my bike for 34 minutes!
I downloaded the free 100 day challenge journal.
This morning I joined a team and started working on my day 1 assignment.
I used to think I had blown the day if I ate something not on my plan, now I record it on my food planner and move on.
I used to always eat seconds at supper, now I stop when I am satisfied.
What makes this different from the myriad of books and products I have purchased in the past?
This works with the plan I already had in place and with my favorite SP team, Turquoise Titans. This book made me realize that the plan I started this month will work because I am placing the correct tools in my tool belt.
Finds me hopeful and looking forward to the next 99 days:)

    I ordered the book because someone recommended it, received it and at first had the same reactions you did: I too thought 'meh, another diet book'. Then later I picked it up and started reading and got VERY enthousiastic. Linda Spangle has good tips and the best thing is indeed that you can use them with just about any method you like (be it that there may be a few lessons here and there that don't apply to some methods). Before I knew it I'd volunteered to be team leader for the '100 days by Linda Spangle team'... So be careful! This book makes you take chances! lol

    I am using the same book and joined a team where I keep a thread for doing the exercises. I love the logic of how she explains things. I will be doing Day 6 tomorrow. I started my Magic Journal today. It is small enough to fit in my purse, so have journal, will travel or stay home. Loving this.

    Keep working the plan for the entire 100 days. emoticon My glad you are excited about it, too.

    Hugs, Gaylinn
