    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. And IT WORKED! I lost 80# not 104# BUT I’m now near my GW.

    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.

    Eat Less junk food and fast food.

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