Onward to becoming healthy

I'm a 50 something trying to lose weight and change my life to be healthy and happy again.


I have started the 5% summer challenge on July 27. This will be the 3rd 5% challenge that I have participated in. I lost weight each time (not 5%) and gained it back (+some). There was just so much to keep up with and to do and I have a hard time spending that much time on the computer every day that I took a break and did not participate in the last one (or maybe 2).

I have started the 5% summer challenge on July 27. This will be the 3rd 5% challenge that I have participated in. I lost weight each time (not 5%) and gained it back (+some). There was just so much to keep up with and to do and I have a hard time spending that much time on the computer every day that I took a break and did not participate in the last one (or maybe 2). I was a starfish in the 2 that I did previously. This time I am a Super Underdog!!!

This is my plan:

I will get in my exercise, either walk, elliptical, swim or a class at my wellness center each day.

I will do the LTGL challenges each day (as long as I am able)

I will choose a live-it plan (I refuse to say diet) and stick with it. I am toying with Weight Watchers (on my own) or a moderate carb program.

Thank you so much! I am honored you found me there and came to my page. Katie is such an inspiration for me. I found her page shortly after joining SP and thought how awesome she was and how I'd probably never be able to run, but now I can. I hope you're having a great day.
