Since beginning on this journey, I've been involved in a couple of challenges but so far they've all been individual ones. This week, I started the "Thin in my Skin" 12 week challenge on myfitnesspal. This will be the first time that I'm "competing" against others to lose weight. The prize? We'll all be healthier after 12 weeks and a few of us will be able to claim bragging rights. I'm going to do my best to be one of the people bragging.
In addition to the weight loss goal, our moderator is issuing weekly challenges, such as drinking our water and burning a certain number of calories. This week, I'm off to a good start. Everyday this week, I've had at least 9 glasses of water and so far I've burned 1805 calories doing 194 minutes of exercise. I plan to get to at least 2500 before Monday's check in.
And my Friday weigh in? 273.6. I'm approaching another big milestone and I'm hoping to get there by the end of the month. When I reach 265, that's just 8.6 little pounds away, I'll be able to say I've lost 125 lbs. That's a whole person or a 2 year old riding a 2 month old horse or 25 yappy Chihuahuas or an Irish Setter chasing 5 housecats or....... you get the idea.
