OK, I'll start it because I'm super motivated this month to make it a better month after getting derailed last month. Sick kids (for almost 3 weeks) and a week long vacation are not kind to losing weight or maintaining an exercise program. I was thrilled in the end to lose 4.2 pounds, but that's a far cry from 10 pounds.
So, this month join me for the 10 pounds challenge. Rules are: must be healthy weight loss - no starvation stuff going on to lose the ten pounds. If you end up losing ANYTHING in the month, you've had a successful month - always remember that. So rule two - no dropping out if you feel aren't going to make the challenge. This is not a competition. It's a friendly way to keep us accountable. Reality is, most of us will not reach the 10 pounds and that's NORMAL!
You can check in whenever you want. I'll keep track of people's losses and will post them weekly and at the end (unless someone else is dying to do that for me).
If you want to, add to the weight loss column the number of hours you worked out for the week too. Keeping track of that can be motivating. My goal is to exercise at least 25 hours this month (works out to be about taking 1 day off a week).
Like last month, I personally will be weighing daily, but just weigh in whenever you want along the way.
Ready, set, go!!!!
