    Team 4 welcome this is going to be a great four weeks.

    First off I want you to really thank yourselves, be proud and be happy for the way you're thinking and feeling about getting fit and healthy.

    This is a process for all of us we didn't get to where we are right now overnight and we're not going to be able to fix it overnight but we're going to take steps, by steps, by steps, and eventually reach our goals.

    I think everyone has parts of health and fitness that are easier for us and parts that we struggle with. So with part of your goals I want to you to look at what you struggle with, maybe it's consistency, maybe it's being too strict and beating yourself up if you aren't perfect, maybe it's getting up and moving and exercising, maybe it's something else but I want that to be part of your goals and let's track that as a team. Let me know what it is and it will be part of our numbers. As we take our steps towards reaching our goals I think it's important to build block by block.

    Let's try and focus on being consistent having a good plan and doing our best to fulfill that plan. So regarding your plan I want you to pick some forms of exercise that you like and will do and a number of times per week that you'll perform that exercise.

    Let's figure out an eating plan I don't want to use the word diet because we're going to shift the way we look at food and think about food. I love food. I love everything about it, I love cooking it, I love the taste of it, I love sharing it with friends and family. So I'm going to take this love of food and use it to my advantage by making healthy meals that taste good and are appealing to me. MFP has set me up on a 40% protein, 30% fat and 30% carb program. I am going to use this as my template and eat my happy food around this. I am cutting out junk food and reducing my sugar intake. Oh and upping my protein. Let me know what your plans are.

    Ladies, I want to say something about how fast you can lose weight. God made it more difficult for you to shed pounds than it does for us guys it's just a sad fact. I've done some research and some reading regarding this subject. About 2 pounds a month is a realistic goal for most women some can do a little bit more but about 2 pounds a month it very doable.

    This is going to be fun, for the first round let's bust some rust off ourselves, get in the groove and make it happen. I know y'all can do it! I look forward to the next four weeks. If you need any help with anything, any questions, whatever just let us know and will try and figure it out.

    Team 4 Rocks!!

    Team 4 send me your numbers, starting wt, goal wt and you have to send me the goal for number of days of exercise and the goal for the number of days you stick with your meal plan. My goal for exercise is 3 weight workouts and 3 cardio workouts per week and my goal is to stick to my meal plan 6 days a week. I will track this in addition because these goals are super important. Please send my your stuff right away.

    Is it to late to join? I want to lose 100 lbs overall, but need to get my eating under control first. I am an emotional eater and am trying to get it under control 1 day at a time. I also tend to grab whatever is quick and easy because I do not like to cook at all. I'd be grateful for the help and encouragement to stick with the plan.
