Smile Merry Christmas Challenge

Well, it's now Autumn, starting to get colder each day, and you know what that means... more warm foods and carbohydrates leading to the dreaded holiday weight gain. Christmas is only about 9 weeks away, and I would love to start a Merry Christmas challenge. My goal is to try to lose 10 lbs. Are there any other buddies who would like to join me? It doesn't matter how much you need to lose or what plan you are on, the challenge is to lose during the holidays. Let's bring 2005 with a loss. Now that's a challenge!
(Hugs),
Dena

Smile Happy Tuesday!

Good Morning, Everyone!

Welcome Sharqueen76. You are now on the Christmas Challenge list.

Goals:
MissMeliss: 25 lbs
DewCan: 19 lbs
Sharqueen: 20 lbs.
Dena: 10 lbs.

So how is everyone doing... Miss Meliss, DewCan, Sharqueen? How did it go yesterday? I'm eating less, moving more and drinking 8 or more glasses of water. This is just so exciting and I can just feel those fat cells wasting away. What a wonderful Christmas present.

Well, it's time for my morning walk. We can make our dreams come true.
(Hugs),
Dena

Welcome rolldml. You are down for 15 lbs. by Christmas. Let us know how you are doing. What plan are you on?

DewCan, Just start over. Never quit. Are you following any particular plan? We can do this together.

See you all later.

Good Morning Everyone!
How is everyone doing? I really want to drop 10 lbs. over the next few weeks. So my plan is to eat less, exercise each day and drink 8-10 glasses of water. I know this plan is doable. We went out to dinner last night, which is always harder to stay strong, but I think I did better than usual. I just have to keep my eye on the goal and be persistent and strong. Well, it's time to exercise. Have a great day, everyone!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday.... only 4 days and week 1 is over. Boy, does the time go so fast! I'm going to start journaling what I eat, my exercise routine and how much water I'm drinking. This will help me be more honest with myself. It's funny how life gets in the way sometimes, and I find that I'm not doing everything perfectly. Hopefully, this will get me going in the right direction.
OK, here goes:
Breakfast: Waffle, coffee (no butter, syrup)
Lunch: Large plate of vegetables, egg, apple
Dinner: Chicken, apple
Water: 8 glasses
Exercise: 30 minute brisk walk. I had a meeting tonite, so I didn't have time to do anymore exercise. Hope to do better on Friday.

I'll come back later to jot down what I did the rest of the day.

Good Luck, everyone!
(Hugs),
Dena
