About Me

I would say that I am curious, vivacious, gregarious, sometimes funny, intelligent, easy going, very passionate about the things I love, caring, thoughtful, and kind. Maybe that is a little over the top, but I think you can count on me to be very honest. LOL

8 Week Challenge – Or More as needed!

Weight Collage Weight Collage 2

Okay this is painfully honest…pictures don’t lie!  

Making small changes which I know I will be able to maintain is the key here.  I know I can drink my 8 glasses of water….really???  One of the things that helped me the most last time I did this challenge was to track the food I was eating.   If I know that I must put it in the computer, then I am less likely to put it in my mouth…….really?? To be at my goal weight I will have to lose 14.83% that is a big number!

I’ve done my research and I know that losing 10% of my body weight in 6 months is the golden rule… but if I actively make healthy lifestyle changes  I know I will begin to see and feel the improvements in 8-12 weeks….after all it’s going to be SUMMER!  Just saying the word SUMMER makes me feel better already!  So my goal will probably not be my ideal weight in 8 weeks, but I know I can/will do all the work necessary to look and feel better!

I love that you are being realistic and know that it will take more than 8 weeks. Ditto for me. You are so very brave, I'm holding back on putting it ALL out there.

Maintaining is the key. I like that this challenge is not extreme and very doable.

You two make me laugh.
