Hello! Welcome to the Champions in the Kitchen Fall Challenge! The Summer Challenge was my first experience with this group. It was a lot of fun, interesting, and chocked full of support along the way by a great bunch of sparkers.

Today they've asked us to share our strategies for success. I'm sticking with what worked for me over the Summer Challenge, as I lost 5%, and lost weight each week, all while managing a record number of food events over the 8 weeks; the management of the food events was remarkable. For me, two things were key: I restricted my calories daily to 1200-1300 and stuck to my food plan of lean proteins, most of my carbs were fruits and vegetables, with 2 servings of bread over the course of the day. Food event days were less strict on food content, but I made myself stick to the 1200-1300 calories a day. Was it easy? No, but worth it. Patience is sooooo key.

What strategies work best for you?

All the best during the Challenge! Looking forward to doing this Challenge with you! emoticon

The way I plan for success is to plan and pack the night before work

"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."

"I think if you exercise, your state of mind - my state of mind - is usually more at ease, ready for more mental challenges.
Once I get the physical stuff out of the way it always seems like I have more calmness and better self-esteem."

"Whatever you want in life, start today.
Not tomorrow - today.
Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning.
Your happiness depends on starting today - every day."
