I've read of others joining challenge teams and had once tried the Biggest Loser Challenge Team. I was put on a team that was just "blah" and didn't at all try to challenge each other or help each other in anyway...it was not a good experience for me. I felt like I was doing it all by myself so I'm hoping that by joining this one, that the experience will be better. I think that BLC I was on before was part of the reason I got so disgusted with dieting. I dropped out from Sparkpeople and of course in the matter of a year I had gained back all I had lost..So hoping this time around that this experience will be much better.
Here are the guidelines I plan to do:
Spring 5% Challenge Commitment: I plan to be truly commited to doing this.
How much and how often will you exercise? I have already been walking about 10 minutes a day. I plan to continue this and try to add a minute each day as my back allows.
What diet will you follow? I plan to follow the Spark diet in eating healthy foods and smaller portions and keeping my calorie count around 1200 calories.
How will you support your team? I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturdays I will weigh in and record it. I will check in with my team daily and leave a comment on the Discussion Board. I will read and comment on blogs as I have time.
I'm hoping this can make a difference in my health and lowering my weight.
