2016 Summer 5% Challenge

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

You know how long winded I can be, right? This blog will probably be my shortest ever. I have joined the 5% Challenge team for the summer. I did the "Spring Challenge" & while I didn't lose ALL of the weight I wanted to lose (15 pounds) it did keep me accountable & keep me going. Just like at all of those Weight Watchers meetings most of us attended, there is something very mindful about knowing you will be posting your weight in a public place for others to see. There was no judgment or negativity, but it's still pretty motivational.

If you haven't done one of the Challenges in the past, I suggest you try one in the future & see if you like it. The teams call for a LOT of involvement & that was tough for me at first, but you figure it out...just like anything else. If you have questions, please just ask. If I don't have the answer, I will ask & get it for you!

    I saw you and a couple of others signed up for that so I went and looked at the group. I think it is a great idea and I might try the next one. The rules are super strict though and I am rubbish with rules. This time I will just cheer you on!

    The level of commitment intimidated me too at first, but as the saying goes, courage is not the absence of fear, but going ahead in spite of fear...and I'm glad I found the courage within me to stick with it! Glad you did too! We're going to rock this summer challenge! emoticon
