WOOHOOO October 7th is our STARTING DATE!! So our ending date will be December 2nd. I AM ALL FOR THIS!!

Each challenge is a NEW Chance to DO MY BEST to HIT my 5% Goal loss!! This time it'll be just under 9 LBs during the 8 weeks. Is this DOABLE? YEAH as long as I follow what I've set out to do.

I have not done as well as the previous year. TOTALLY my own doing. I KNOW What to do, now to just do it.

Member Since: 7/7/2011

Fitness Minutes: 112,923

My Goals:
To hit my 5% Goal of about 9Lbs.

To make SURE I get my REST. If it's a hard night, to get UP and do a sleep yoga video posted on YOUTUBE. THere are MANY of these including for people who can't-do yoga at ALL.

My Program:

1) Drink 6 glasses of water (at 8 I generally GAIN)
2) Exercise SMARTLY! I keep breaking or injuring my foot which stops me cold. So now 10 to 20 mins at a time ONLY. If it feels at ALL Stressed,, slow WAY Down.
3) Stay in the 1200 to 1350 calorie range. NOT doing any "latest" things I've watched too many have MUCH success doing these, but then they go back to their regular eating after a time (sometimes a long time) and POOF! BACK comes the weight. NOT doing this.
4) Having DIANE APPRECIATION time by doing hobbies I enjoy.

Personal Information:
LOOKING Forward to HOPEFULLY during the next 8 weeks to get into a class at the local Animal Shelter to do KITTEN YOGA!! WOOHOOO!!!

Other Information:
I DO NOT like the words "YOU CAN'T"!!! Where there's a WILL there's a WAY." It may NOT be the traditional way, but if we look for it, it'll be there.

    Diane, I LOVE your DIANE APPRECIATION TIME - where you do hobbies that you love. What a great plan to put into a week or really daily! I am super impressed with all the progress you made last year, and so thankful you still give it your all, and inspire so many of us.
    Plateau a few days or weeks, no matter... you are going to hit your 5% goal and have many returns of the same weight loss results!!
    Keep going Girl!!

    I'm not going to watch any NFL until the players stop acting like spoiled children. But I know you will be watching the game, so enjoy yourself.

    Hi Diane, Don't forget that I am leaving for MA today, and won't be back until Sunday, the 22.

    In the meantime, I hope Izzy is doing better along with her Mommy.

    Wish I had time to come to Maine-a, but perhaps my next trip?

    Let the others know that I am gone, please. I don't want to lose my spot on the DAWGS! BTW....since I will be gone, can I track my stuff while I am in MA, and then enter it when I get back the following week?

    Take care, my Dear! emoticon
