Default New Year's Challenge

Any of my 100 clubbers willing to do this challenge with me?? My goal is to lose 20 pounds by January 1, 2006. I have already lost three (Yippee!! ) so I have 17 more pounds to go. It doesn't matter what plan you are following, I just need the support and I am here to support you.

Most importantly, I want to start exercising regularly and eating properly on a consistant basis. Also, it's staying motivated. I am always so gung ho for the first week and two and I see the lose and then I chicken out and binge. That pattern has to stop.

So anyone up for the challenge, just jump in on this thread. We can do this together!!

Liz, I LOVE "Just because you break one egg doesn't mean you have to break the other 11." That is SOOOOOOO GREAT. I think it will be my new mantra. Honestly, I love it!!!

FunKristin, my best friend's name is Kristin. Nice to meet you.

Hilary, your avatar is beautiful. Very sassy!

OK, so... New Year's goal. I would like to make my goal to just go to Curves every day Monday-Friday and to do my own workout at home on the days they are closed due to holidays.

I would LOVE to drop 20 pounds by December 31!

That would be about 3 pounds a week, consistently...starting NOW That is putting a LOT of pressure on myself...what if I don't lose due to hormonal fluctuations a few of those weeks? What if I build muscle and show no loss but lose fat inches (I just added in regular weight training)?

I'll say that I will stick to my program, consistently through this time (even on holidays), follow the nutritional goals I have outlined for myself and increase my workout frequency and times, changing it up, doing more Nia, Aqua Aerobics, Yoga and Pilates in addition to straight cardio and weight training.

I *may* just make it to -20 pounds by then! We'll see

Great. It's so good to see so many jumping on board. Today has not been so great. I haven't overeaten, I've undereaten which can just be as bad sometimes. I was supposed to go food shopping today and the money I was supposed to get didn't come through and I hardly have any food in the house. Soooo, I'm hoping that it will happen tomorrow.

Apryl, thanks! hehe! It's one of the few pictures I actually like of myself. lol

Teahoney, you're right - undereating can be just as bad. I've been horrible about that in the past and ever since I started keeping a record of everything that goes in my mouth, I've been doing much better.

This week for me has been pretty great...yesterday marked losing my first 10 pounds officially! Hooray!!!

teahoney,

Yesterday must have been a day for undereating. i messed up my plan so good i had a major sugar low. so it is real important (for me) to keep on plan as much as possible. my mom and my daughter are both hypoglycemic i just didnt realize that i was also. I got lucky though i was able to get it regulated in about 4 hours and i dont have to worry about it going to high today. but i do have to worry that i dont "crash" again today. im taking my tester into work today so if i need it i have it.

babs, I know what you mean. When I don't eat like I should I can feel my blood sugar dropping and I get really sick and nauseous. So I have to make sure that if nothing else, I always have healthy snacks that I can munch on.
