The May Day Challenge begins today!!

In case you have heard, today is the first day of the May Day Challenge.
Here is my starting picture. It was taken over the weekend with my family.

What are my goals you ask...well to simply lose as much as I can. I have been on WW since March 3rd of this year. I have lost about 8 pounds so far. It is coming off so slow this time around but it is coming off.

This is the umpteenth time I have started WW. What is different this time? My focus on health not weight loss. We purchased a treadmill, I got a Polar F6 heart rate monitor, a digital scale for weighing my food and myself and I signed up for the auto withdrawl of $39.99 for my WW meetings and subscription (the monthly pass). I am in this for life!

Seriously though, I would ultimately like to lose a total of 70 lbs. As far as this challenge goes my number goal will be 20 lbs. lighter by the end of this challenge.

The other thing I am doing today is taking new measurements. I will add them here later. I highly suggest you to do it too. I notice that times when the scale aint moving the measuring tape is!!

If you are looking for an email buddy or just want to chat about fat, treadmills, eating or WW leave me a comment. Good luck to everyone else who is following this challenge. I can't wait until September 18th to hear everyones results!!

Good luck in this endeavor. I am in the challenge too and look forward to working on this "together". I will check back each week to see how you are going. You can do it!

You are already on your way there- losing 8 pounds. It may not seem like a lot you but your measurements show a lot of loss!
My story is up too. Come on by and visit, just no snacking while you're visiting!

Hi Patti,

I've join the challenge also. We have a lot in common. I also want to loose between 60 & 70 lbs and I want this to be a lifetime change too. I just took my first measurements yesterday.

I would be interested in having an email buddy to be accountable to while on this challenge. My email address is onthejourneytovictory@gmail.com
