Thumbs up Memorial Day 20 lb Challenge!

Who wants to do a Memorial Day 20 to 25 pound challenge with me?

OR how about 10 + and over?

That gives us about 12 weeks to drop a few before it's swim suit time!



That'll put me right around 168 and pretty dang close to NOT being Obese anymore and I am sure it'll help the swim-suit confidence level.
This is 2 or more pounds a week to drop! I KNOW we can do that if we just put our minds and bodies to it!



You prize you ask? Well isn't it obvious? The pride you'll have in yourself for dropping 10 or 20 + pounds!

According to one of the many online BMI calculators, that will put me at just being over weight and 23 lbs to being a normal weight! Wooohoooo!
Guidelines:

Please check in here and give & get support, and PLEASE weigh-in with us at least once a week, showing the difference. My WI was today, so I'll WI again next Tuesday.

Share with us any tips and tricks you've discovered and any non-scale victories as well.


Who's with me???

I am always in challenges. Keeps me motivated.

I Got to 40lbs Lost on My dads Birthday(march 7th 2009)
he would have been 64(He passed away in 2007) Anyways It would be nice to reach onederland For when I go to place flowers at his grave...He was an awesome DAD.Actually His sudden Massive heart attack and his passing (plus a picture of me that Made me look like the marshmellow man from ghost busters movie) helped me to wanna get healthy as I can for my kids.
