Weight Loss 2012 - It's All About ME!

Weight Loss 2012 - It's All About ME!


Welcome to the New Year - 2012

Ok friends, if you need a weight loss buddy, shed holiday pounds, or continue your health and fitness goals from our previous contests, this is the place for you!

Our goal: Lose, tone, be healthier, maybe kick medications we have to take due to our weight - does not matter. If you have a challenge, find a friend here! To Win The Prize: You must lose TEN POUNDS or more by 3/12/12!!!

Start date: Monday, January 2, 2012
End Date: Monday, March 12, 2012

Like we did for previous contests, you can post whatever you like, every Monday or you can post every day! Whatever it takes to keep you on the path to success. Pounds down, a great article you found, excercise accomplished, a change in a bad eating habit - anything.

(FC recommends seeking your Dr's approval before you start any diet/excerise program).

Please sub to this thread, and we will see you for what I hope is a glorious new contest in a glorious New Year!

PRIZE: $75.00 Gift Card from where ever you want! Bonus: I will throw in a subscription to Shape or Fitness Magazine. I find having these around the house is a constant reminder to make better eating choices so it might be helpful to the winner as well!


GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

In!

Goal: get rid of "that stuff" from above my tummy and tone & shrink this back side!

I have added two more days to the gym, so I am now going 6 days a week.

Count me in too. I haven't gained anything in spite of eating all the extra holiday goodies. They should be all gone by New Years. Guess pushing those carts loaded with charts around at work helped there but I need to start actually losing some weight.

Happy New Year Friends!!

I spent my first day of the NY at the pool drinking champagne. Not very smart! Oh well, it was beautiful here this weekend. Glorious!

I am getting ready to hit the gym here soon. I am also going to try to write down everything I eat this week and see where I can make some changes.

Good luck everyone and have a super first week of the NY!!!

Cheers!

Jodi

Count me in. I have a Jamaica trip in February. I need to get a new bathing suit. My challenge will be to get more exercise. I bought new sneakers yesterday. Now I can start my walking routine.

We got two different restaurant gift cards for Christmas and we chose to use the Red Robin one for lunch yesterday. I got a chicken salad and it was just the right size to be filling. Dh has to take cholesterol medicine now so he is slowly converting over to eating a little healthier, although I don't think he will ever love vegetables but at least he doesn't want everything made with butter now. I need to put my house on a weight loss program too.

Congratulations one the trip, Charlotte! It sounds wonderful!

Jerry got a gift card to Cracker Barrel, we usually eat there when we have doc's appts in Jackson. I try to have something sensible when we go by there but sometimes it can be hard.
Hugs, Paula
