5% Fall Challenge Commitment
I will do ST/PT 3-4x/wk, walk at lunch 5 days/wk, and swim 2-3x/wk. I will follow the clean eating life style. I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturday mornings I will weigh in and record it. I will check in with my team daily and leave a comment on the Discussion Board (when I have something to say!). I will read and comment on blogs as I have time.

GOAL: Increase strength/endurance/balance...build muscle, lose inches, and lose 9.5 more #...Strengthen my back and legs.


A friend (KADYDIDI) from our quilting guild introduced me to SP. I joined in August 2008, but didn't get around to doing this page until January 2009 when I signed up for the New You Bootcamp Challenge with my second daughter. I have struggled with weight issues for a while (since before the birth of my youngest-now 36). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, neck, and feet. I had bilateral total knee replacements almost a year ago. I herniated 3 discs in my lower back causing some nerve damage in February 2010 and am still trying to rebuild my strength. I was eating slow carb, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to clean eating and hope to lose a few more lbs.

    Hi Mary, I just wanted to stop and say "Congratulations to you for a job well done". You helped us get to number one for the most weight lost, which is the end goal to lose weight. I know you didn't feel very well, but when I checked you had lost 6 pounds, so that is great!!! I look forward to the Summer Challenge as a Firecracker and hope to lose my 5% and celebrate our Birthday as a Firecracker too!!! Have a great weekend!!! emoticon emoticon

    Congratulations Mary on your weight loss this week. Even though you were not feeling back to your normal self, a loss is a loss, so good job! I hope you are feeling better by now! It seems unreal that we only have 1 more week after this Saturday. I am definitely not making any progress during this spring challenge, but I am going to try to shake things up a bit and see if I can get unstuck. Good luck for the last weigh-in! emoticon emoticon
