Who’s ready for bikini time??
I know, I know, some of you still have 20° with snow on the ground and icy roads, but with just over 16 weeks before the first day of summer, there's no time like the present to start getting “fit and fine” for the bikini, bathing suit, sundress, shorts and tank top, or whatever your favorite dress is for summer. Let's not forget the prom, best friend or granddaughter's wedding that might be coming up - we want to look awesome for those, too. I, actually, have a great-niece getting married at the end of May, so I don't even have until summer!!
I don’t know about anyone else, but I found it pretty daunting when I knew I had to lose 40 lbs, so I set smaller goals, breaking it into 2-5 lb increments. It didn’t seem so hard and I was thrilled that I was able to lose 26 lbs in just a few months. I stalled for a while then lost some more; now with about 20 lbs left to go, I have to finish the job.
Safe weight loss is, typically, 1-2 lbs/week and because I have medical conditions that make it difficult to lose weight, I think trying to lose 1 lb/wk is probably a reasonable goal and it sounds a lot easier than losing 20 lbs. I’m challenging all of you to “meet or beat” my goal of losing 1 lb/week.
All you have to do to join is make a commitment to lose at least 1 pound/week. It can’t be *that* hard, right?? Hmmm, we’ll see about that!! LOL
Here we go; just post below that you’d like to join in then start losing. You can pick whatever eating and/or exercise plan you choose, but if you want/need help, please be sure to ask; that’s what our community is all about.
I’ll post a Sunday weigh in thread to keep track of progress. For those not familiar with the Sunday Weigh In; this is a post I’ll do each Sunday morning, in which we can post our weight loss (or gain, if that happens) for the previous week, “brag” about our successes, talk about whatever problems we might have encountered, what we might do to change things, encourage those having problems staying on course, etc… Watch for it – I’ll post it every Sunday morning, with the title “Sunday Weigh In (date)”. If you don’t weigh on Sunday, that’s okay, just post your weight closest to that… for instance, if you, typically weigh on Friday, you can post that on Sunday or if you weigh on Monday, just wait until Monday to post.
I don’t have any prizes to give away, so the goal is to keep challenging ourselves to do better this week than we did last week.
Everyone is welcome.
Are you ready?? LET’S “WIN” BY LOSING (weight)
