I want to continue motivating myself and stay on track. I will challenge myself this month with this challenge. It is open to anyone who wants to participate.

Therefore this month I will also focus on my exercise routine as well.

Here's what you do:

SW: (Starting weight)
CW: (Current weight)
GW: (Goal weight for the month)
Goals this month: (you can choose anything ex: stay away from sweets, exercise 5 days a week,...etc)

    Ok, I want to do this but have no intention of posting my starting weight... I am clinically obese, that's all you need to know really, and when I lose I will post that success.

    Started January off wanting to walk 5 minutes on my treadmill everyday. This is where I was! Once I got going, I liked it. Lost 26 pounds, obviously not all fat. LOL!
    Started February off wanting to do 60 miles and I made it... Lost 9 pounds. ( pretty reasonable for 28 days I think)

    sw: way to high
    cw: 35 pounds less than I was Jan.1st.,2014
    1st gw: 42 pounds away... for March my goal is 10 pounds. (it could happen)

    Goals for March
    1. Walk 75 miles in 31 days... I go slow, but I go! (pace improvements 2.5 -3.0)
    2. LOG all food consumed.
    3. Get water in me daily.
    4. Keep eye on sodium in food.
    5. Get 75 miles in, no matter what!
    6. Stretch before and after walking. (Seems like an odd goal I realize, but I don't do it with regularity.)

    If you are just dying to know what I actually weigh, inbox me. LOL! I will tell you... but I will call you nosy!:flowerforyou:

    1 day late but count me in:
    I'm 44 years old, menopausal, I try to do a variety of exercise (zumba, bollywood, running for cardio - trying to get better about doing weights)

    SW: (Starting weight) 177
    CW: (Current weight) 174.5 (I just got my fitbit and started last week)
    GW: (Goal weight for the month) 169
    I know it's only 5 lbs - not very ambitous but for me slow and steady is more realistic.

    Behavioral Goals this month: continue to log food daily, increase exercise to 5 days/ week, strength training at lest 1 day/ week, and sleep a minimum of 6 hours a night, exercise enough most days that I can safely eat 1500 calories (instead of only 1200 which is ridiculous!)

    I am also training for a mud run April 4 so by the end of the month i would like to be able to do at least 2 unassisted pull ups. right now I can only do the kind on the machine that subtracts weight from your body.
