First off, I'm sorry this is late AGAIN!! My computer at home died on Friday night. I am having to do this from work. but anyway....

November is the start of the holidays, one of the harder months for those of us trying to lose weight. Maybe a chanllenge will keep you on the straight and narrow. Come join us in the challenge!!! If you are just beginning, starting over or are doing great - this is the place for you! It's somewhere to check in...some freindly compitition. Come join us for our monthly challenge!!

Since this is a monthly challenge, it will start on the 1st and the day of the month is the day of the challenge. You need to post your points on a daily basis. (But a catch-up post is always fine too!!) But instead of there being a post for every day. Simply reply to this post with the day that you are posting for and put your points. I will still calculate and post the totals, but they will be in this post also. Don't worry about it getting too huge, I will be working to keep it trimmed down, once I have totaled the points.

For those of you who have NO IDEA what I am talking about - here are the details. Sometimes we work our hardest when we are held accountable. So I challenge you to do your very best for the month and we'll see who wins!!

Here is how it's going to go. Starting TODAY Monday, November 1, 2004. We will try to do the 3 things that work. Food, water & exercise. You decide what your food plan is, how much water you want to drink and how much exercise you want to get every day. Every day you have the opportunity to earn 4 points.

2 point for sticking with your food plan
1 point for drinking the amount of water you decided on
1 point for getting some exercise.

Post here with how many points you've earned for a given day, and I will keep track. We'll see who's did the best for the month.

This is a very cool way to keep on track, because even if you don't do so great on food, you might still get in your water and exercise to earn the points!

Who's ready for a challenge???? It starts TODAY!!!!

If you list your "plan of attack" here, please make a point to also post it in the Point Challenge Plans. I delete all the posts after I have tallied so this thread doesn't become unmanageable, but it's nice to be able to go look at what someone's plan is

Day 30 - 3 points (worked until midnight and couldn't get the exercise in...does exercising restraint when the 10 pm coffee and doughnuts appeared count?) ;)

Hey, I'd give you a point for exercising restraint! Sometimes that does a lot more for your body than a walk around the block.

Day 30 = 2 pts.
