Week One

OK…here we go! LOL! I am “officially” starting today. You can read my “intro” here. :)

The Goal:

Lose 50 pounds and then reassess if I need to lose any additional weight.

Time: I want to do this by my next birthday; March 5. So, that gives me 7 months. Plenty of time to do this in a healthy manner! If I average about 1.5 pounds weight loss a week, I will make it!

The Plan:

Make use of the Wii Fit Blessing. LOL! –> My aim is to work out with it 5 days a week. However, if I can get 3 days, I will be happy!

I also plan to drink 1/2 my current body weight in ounces of water per day. I know from the past how important this is.

Finally, I refuse to “diet,” so, I will just be making better choices and limiting my portions. I will limit sugar as well. This method has always worked best with me!

Weekly Updates:

Each week (aiming for Mondays), I will post an update on my week, what I did and did not do. My failures and accomplishments. I will be completely honest. I am not going to post pics at this time. However, at the end of this journey, I will post a pic of my before and after jeans. LOL!

OK, so now it is your turn! LOL! Don’t make me do this alone! I want my Moms of Faith readers support, and I want to walk with you on YOUR journey! If you want to post about it on your blog, that would be awesome too! Fee free to post a link below to your post…make sure and send some link love our way! ;)

    I just found out about your challenge, but I too just began to release my extra weight. I have lost 5 pounds this week and I feel so energetic! My goal is to lose 60 pounds. I am on a nutritional cleansing program. I am filling my body with superfoods and healthful nutrients and already feel more energetic. I am not taking any drugs of any kind. I also have not had my beloved Pepsi (or any form of caffeine) since May 2009, of which I am hugely proud of myself. Good luck to each and every one taking this challenge!!
