To lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. I started walking for fitness in 2008 and have now completed eight half-marathons. A secret (shhh...) goal is to do a marathon next year! A goal that is NOT a secret is that I want to run in all 50 states before I turn 50--I'll have 22 states completed this year. I'm 45.
I'm doing THM (Trim Healthy Mama) which is a cross between Atkins/South Beach Diet plans. After a VERY long stall, I'm finally seeing results using this diet plan.
I'm married with four children and two (almost three) grandkids. I work full-time (nights) at a local hospice.
Hello Orange Team member, we need you to post your initial weigh in asap otherwise your spot may be filled by someone else. We need to include your weigh in with the teams number. If you do not respond you will be included as an honorary member.
We are so glad to have you on the team! We’re hoping we have a fabulous Fall into Fitness challenge. Be sure to check in with the team regularly. A few things to acclimate you to the group, or reminders for those returning Orange Members!
ITC is the inter-team challenges that all Biggest Loser teams are doing together. There is an ITC and then a Bonus . . . which is also all teams.
OTC is Orange Team Challenge, which are challenges that our team is working toward. Hmmm . . . you will still see references to RTC, because we used to the Red Team and old habits die hard (which we also know from breaking some of our bad health habits). Our team will also have a mini-challenge – which is only our team as well. We will be looking for suggestions from our members so we have everyone’s input on the OTC/RTC and mini-challenges. Watch for that . . . coming soon.
We will post challenges each Wednesday evening/Thursday morning . . . so watch for those. There will be a challenge posting, and then a posting where you can report your progress just for that week.
Thursday is weigh in day, where you need to report your numbers so the lovely Vannessa (NESSAGIRL67) can then go and calculate, chase down the missing, and submit our results to the overall challenge.
Be sure to chat, ask questions, check-in often, and have fun. We’re all in this together. We’re so happy to have you all here, and we’re hoping for some great results.
We’ve posted the Pre-challenge for this week, and we’ll have a second pre-challenge up next week. So watch for those!
Your leaders in this challenge are NESSAGIRL67, SOOKIE, and GIRLIE603. We are here for you, so please reach out with any and all questions, concerns, etc.
