Default One Month Challenge

This is a one month challenge. I decided to start this because it's a month till the summer! I know a lot of us have summer goals. Let's try to ramp this up by making a challenge.

We'll have till May 30th to reach your goals. Hold on, Shannon, a month is really short! How will I reach a goal in a month?!? Pssssh.

In a month, you could:
-Start a new healthy habit(it takes a month to make a habit according to a couple things I read this week)
-Get back on plan
-lose 4 pounds(1 pound a week)
-lose 8 pounds(2 pounds a week)
-start c25k program
-add more exercise into your plan
-add 100 extra steps into your life every week/day
-lose a pants size perhaps
-And much more!

If you are up to the challenge, head the call. Simply reply with your starting stats, goals, pictures and check in on this thread periodically.

I know you can do it! Good luck!

*Disclaimer: A month will not grant you 20, 40, 50, 99 pounds of weight loss. Please be healthy and realistic when trying to achieve your goals. This should be fun and safe.*

My starting weight: 218.7
My goal: Get back on plan and to fit into a pair of 16 shorts and fit into a large shirt comfortably
My measurements: (all in inches)
Arm: 13.5
Ribcage: 35
Waist: 39.5
Hips: 51.5
Thigh(at fullest point): 27

I haven't measured myself for months but that's horrible. Last time I checked my ribcage and waist was equal. *dies*

These are the size 16s I got yesterday at Cato's. These were bought just to get me on plan. ^_^ If I make it, this will be the shortest pair of shorts I've owned ever. I just hope that I am comfortable enough with my legs to wear them!

Measurements shouldn't be that hard. Since you're working on it, they will go DOWN down downnnnnnn soon.

I've exercised 2 times today but ate bad. Overall, a good day, I think, considering I started my TOM.
