I echo Dena's sentiments, Melody - we will miss you here!

I'm heading to a fireworks viewing dinner/get together tonight. There are always many tempting things to choose from, so my goal for tonight is to not eat anything that I can't confidently track. I think this will help keep me from grazing or going back for a little more of this or that.

It's JULY already! Are you looking "hot" this summer?

Please join me in the July 1-31 Buddy Motivation Challenge. Everyone is welcome.

The plan is simple. Each day we post:

1. Number of calories:
2. Number of minutes of exercise:
3. Number of glasses of water:
4. Motivation: (the same one everyday)
5. Delight: (What made you smile or brought you joy today?)

On Day 1, state what your motivation is to lose weight. Repeat this same motivation for the next 30 days. Your motivation has to be something that will inspire you to lose weight.

This is an example:

cals: 1400
water: 8
exercise: 30 min
motivation: Aug. 1 wedding
delight: the invitation to the party

FRIDAY is Success Day. Post any successes you've have during the week.

Who will join me in this challenge?
Hugs, Dena
