what's one more challenge?!?!

So I am now in 3 weight loss challenges. I am hoping this will keep me motivated each day to be more accountable. The first 2 challenges are with friends and family, and I am almost finished with my 3rd week. I have been losing 2lbs a week, and I hope to continue this until I have dropped 15 more lbs.

The third challenge is being hosted by Denise at "Running Journal". Really the only rules are to eat healthy, lose weight, weigh in on Tuesdays and report our % lost to Denise, and then she reports every ones % lost on Wed. This Challenge is going until Oct 27Th.

I am so excited to make some (hopefully) permanent healthy habits through out these next few months. My weight is always roller coastering (even with all my running, I love to eat) and I hope I can get back to my goal weight and maintain.

P.S. My good Friend Wendy is going to work with me on my swimming. There is a tri next June she wants me to do with her and two of our other friends. So in the next month, I will be adding swimming to my workout routine.

WOOT, WOOT, let's hear it for swimming! That rocks and what a good friend.

My weight has also been roller-coastering for some time now. It's time to make a positive change, and a permanent one!

I'm involved in a few challenges myself. Hopefully this will give us the accountability & motivation we need.

Have a great weekend!

YAY for swimming!! Once you do you'll love it and wonder how you ever trained for all those marathons without it! Good luck on the weight loss challenges.
