Join me in a mini challenge to lose 10 lbs before the first day of spring which is Monday, March 20, 2006. We will support and encourage each other to meet their goal!!!!!!

That is a healthy weight loss of 2 lbs per week.

I'd be up for that! I've never done a goal thing like this. Cool! Thanks! That would get me pretty close to my mini-goal.

Okay. ten pounds by March 20th. I can do that. I have just started incorporating some jogging in with my 2 mile walk, so I just know I can break this little plateau I am on and lose ten pounds by then. With some encouragement, I can definately do it.

I am just having some problems with my food choices. I am really trying to get off of eating so much processed boxed foods, but alot of my veggies come in a can. I am going to start trying to make sure I get the kind with no salt added, because i don't have time or the knowledge on how to cook veggies from their natural raw state. any help you can give on this??

lumifan4ever-

Do you use the walk away the pounds videos? I bought the walk and job video a couple of weeks ago and it is excellant.

Nah, i just walk outside in my parking lot at work. it is 1/10 of a mile around. so if i walk it 10 times, i got in one mile. and i jog around it once, i get 1/10 jogged. so i have been walking around one mile with a friend, and then i try to jog around every other time at least 4 times. i hope to increase it next week or so to 5 times around until i am working up to a mile jogged. just because i know jogging can tone you up so much faster than just walking.

I think accountability and support are the bit I've been missing, so this sounds great. And achievable.

Plus, taking my mil to the opera the day after and it'd sure be nice to look a bit better
