2019 Lose 52 Pounds in 52 Weeks Challenge

tammierlewis Posts: 560 Member
If you do this.... lose one pound a week next New Year’s Eve you will have accomplished a significant goal.

I have used this Challenge the past two years as a means to focus my WL effort on an achievable weekly goal. I lost 30 pounds in 2017 and although I did not meet my goal in 2018, I found this challenge kept me accountable.

Join in if you're ready to do it this for the next 52 weeks, one pound at a time.

Get In exercise, eat healthy, veggies, fruit & protein... Beware of your portions and mindlessly eating when you’re not really hungry, just bored.

Share your successes and challenges. You are not alone in this journey. We are all working towards goal.

Weigh in weekly... or daily... whatever works for you. Just copy the information below and paste it in your post.
