Let's get cracking!
YAY!!!! So there's over 40 people up for this challenge... and at 7lbs/half a stone per person .. that's 280lbs that we can all lose between us!
So by now you should have taken that pic, measured and/or weighed yourself and stuck it somewhere you can see it! Sorted out how you're going to track - be it a fancy notebook in your bag or an app on your phone... remember you know you best.. so tracka way you'll stick with... no point in buying a fancy book if you live on your phone and it never gets opened.. and you've booked an appointment with yourself to get some exercise...
But more importantly remember its only 7 weeks... no one is going to hound you till Christmas... and remember why you're doing it.. Summer will be here before we know it... and how many times have we been packing the case wishing we have just lost a little weight before we took off on our hols!? That feeling when you're pulling on a pair of shorts in frustration.. put on the swimming cossie and looked in the mirror in horror! These 7 weeks is the chance to get at least half a stone down! If you don't track .. if you aren't accountable... you only have to answer to you! You're doing this for YOU!!! A happier, healthier YOU! I'm so enthusiastic about this... and all the support we can give to each other!
aaaannnnnd just so we're not real meanies ... Plan a treat for easter.. go for a choccie egg if you fancy it.. or book yourself in for a mani/pedi... a new haircut... or better still a new shirt... skirt.. dress.. that you know wouldn't be comfortable now.. something thats a little reward just for you... losing this weight means a little celebration! Go ahead.. write it on the calendar... you'll be only gorgeous!
Next week drop by again and I'll have a post up for weigh ins and inch losses and post how you've done and a group total. Let us know how hard/easy it was.. and what tip you can give the rest of us, what treat you're planning once you hit your target.. it might inspire someone...
Here's who in -
Flirting with Fashion
The West Wing
Anons if you can post with a 'name' so I'll know who's who.. that would help!
Week one... lets do this!
Oh and if anyone wants to join in along the way... More the merrier!!!
