Winter 2016 5% Challenge

I am starting this challenge at 222 pounds. Up 6 pounds from where I ended the Fall Challenge and up 20+ plans from where I was two years ago (I had a very short stay in "onederland'!)

I KNOW what I need to do to lose weight and be healthier. I just need to DO IT.

Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
~Mark Victor Hansen

It's your journey ... you CAN do this!
