Default 50 Day Challenge

I'd like to invite those who are having trouble staying OP to join me in a 50 day challenge to really get on track.

I've been waffling the past few weeks and having trouble staying OP. Basically the holidays introduced a chink into my defenses and it's been on/off since then. I've had good success, really like the plan, etc but I've now been on the program long enough (about 8 weeks) that my old nemesis emotional eating has struck back.

I know there are quite a few people in the same situation. I SEE YOU THERE. YES, YOU.

50 days is a long enough to meet goals and lock in good habits but a time I know will pass quickly. Only 7 weeks. March 16th. Come on, gang!

Starts tomorrow. Be there!

UPDATE: Fill out this form https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...NDVFRNSUE6M Q every day to track your compliance.

UPDATE THE 2ND: You can use the form everyday. The response is timestamped. If you miss filling out a day, fill it out twice the next and I can correct it for you. Don't worry about what challenge day it says we are on, that is just a little glitter on top.

It's a great idea and takes us right to St. Patty's day, when we can all have some GREEN... salad, veggies, zuchinni chips, kale chips and spinach smoothies to celebrate???

I would like to join! It would be a good thing for me to get started with this site and keep on track with posting regularly. I stepped on a scale a few days ago and realized my weight gain was getting out of control. I'm just eating healthy (no carbs late at night and less than 1300 cals/day) and exercising.. no specific plan. I think 50 days is a good amount of time to get started with!

Well WELCOME. Most of us are doing IP which is very low-carb, so you won't hear chat of all those things you are trying to avoid. We're veggies and meat eaters here LOL. But we all have the same goal -- to get healthy!

Has anyone seen that movie "50 First Dates" -- the girl loses her memory so it's like every day is new and her boyfriend has to woo her anew each day. It's not a bad theme -- we're all here together, but every day is a new day and we need to focus to stay OP. You don't need to say what it is, but I think everyone should set themself a "mini-goal" (even if it's just to check in every day) and set yourself a "reward" -- maybe to get your nails done, or a St. Patty's day massage Since it's a "green" theme, maybe the cash to buy yourself a new shirt or get your hair done...

I'm always up for a way to treat myself! LOL

I will join! I'm getting anxious as I get closer to goal because I often read here that phasing off and near goal is where many people mess up, go off plan, gain back lots of weight. So a 50 day commitment makes me feel very comfortable! And have a good look, I don't care, yes I am wearing my spongebob pajamas at 8pm. I have an excuse, my and my little guy have been sick with tummy bug this week. As for all yalll typing in the nude, go put some clothes on, its the dead of winter, you'll catch a cold!

I have been on IP since the first week of December. Made it through the holidays and have been on the straight and narrow up -- well, until this past week. Stressful stuff at work coupled with disillusionment with my coach/IP Center have led to a missed weigh in; then came the 2 big glasses of wine and sneaky bites here and there. I need something like this to get me back on course! Count me in!

Not a silly question at all. It's a great idea. There are some people who know how to get spreadsheets started -- I'm just not one of 'em. So if a spreadsheet appears, hurray! If not, we can still just check in to keep ourselves motivated. If I'm gonna cheat, I can say whatever I want on a spreadsheet, so I do like the spreadsheet "visual" but, if we don't have it, as Sonny and Cher would say "I got YOU babe!"

Me too! I'm in and a pedicure with a great green color sounds like a fun goal for St. Patrick's Day!
