Default WOW Slimming thru Summer Challenge!

Summer's here! Let's keep ourselves and each other going thru barbecues and vacations....

For any newbies, the traditional copy and paste:

Women on... WHAT??

Okay, let me explain that "Women on WEED" is not what you might be thinking. During previous challenges, a group of us formed a great bond, and we've been challenge buddies ever since. We use the word "WEED" as a mnemonic device to set daily goals, an easy and very specific way to remind yourself during your day to take care of your body, and to nurture your Mind, Mouth and Muscles... it really does help. After all, we are all taking this a day at a time, right?

If you join this challenge, you will see it often - and you are encouraged to give it a try. Here's what it stands for:

W - Water intake. Set a daily goal for how much water you're going to drink. Although there is conflicting research as to how much to actually consume in a day, we all agree it is important to drink lots to stay healthy. So make it a goal!

E - Exercise. Efficient, healthy weight loss isn't going to happen unless you incorporate some kind of physical activity in your life. Everyone does it differently; some go to the gym, some work out at home, and some find ways to sneak in little bits of exercise all throughout the day. Set yourself a goal, even if it's small. Little bits done often WILL add up over time!

E - Eats. Being that we all have different eating plans and weight loss philosophies, this is sort of a wild card. Whatever plan you're on, set yourself a plan-appropriate daily eating goal for the day. Don't forget to make it specific!

D - Daily goal/Daily affirmation. This is another wild card. It doesn't even have to be weight-loss related! This is the spot where you list something you want to get accomplished. Or, you can use "D" for a a daily affirmation - it's an opportunity to say something good and positive about yourself. Sometimes, when we fall short - and we ALL do sometime - we are tempted to berate ourselves. Although it's good to recognize when we don't reach our goals, it's also good to remind ourselves of the awesome parts of ourselves. So go ahead and remind yourself of that in the "D" part of WEED.


Well here it is! Jump right in, tell us about yourselves, your goals, your home lives, your healthy plan, etc. We LOVE newbies! And we LOVE our regulars! Welcome back!

Did 12 mile, 6 hour hike yesterday haha so sore. I've done it before and it was nice to see that in the month since I did it last I've definitely gained endurance. It felt so much easier, and I'm sore today but not like....I can never walk again sore haha.

mavis-thank you! I'm sure you'll make it out of the 140s, you've been doing so well on these challenges

So I decided to just not focus on weight anymore and strangely enough...the weight has been coming off! haha its amazing how that works....the more this becomes a lifestyle for me the easier it is and I just know that in time I will be where I want to be. Knowing I'm doing my best and being healthy has taken a lot of pressure off! Right now I'm on the cusp of a size 8. Like sometimes I am and sometimes I'm not, so my goal for this challenge is to be solidly in a size 8.

I had a great birthday and a great weekend. I went to tht ATL BL casting call and even though I didn't get a call back I had a fun experience meet some new friends and burned some calories standing 6 hours straight I plan making a video and sending it in for a better chance of a call back.
If you want to see pics go to my fb page https://www.facebook.com/pages/My-jo...53894828045395


Hope everyone had a great weekend. I am so pumped now from this weekend.. I got a lot of goodies and some great inspiration this weekend... I gained all my weight back from last year but I am ready to loose all that and more... I plan on taking pics daily of my regular weigh-ins and keeping better track will help me keep up with my weight lost journey.

Mavis- that is beautiful pic I bet that was very enjoyable place to walk...

D- I think I should stop worrying about weight and see if that helps me..

mavis-have fun at your dinner!
