Karen @kjemudder is your Leader of this team!!!

I am one of three Captains on the team and Co-Founder Sally AKA @Fitness327wk. Sue @shbarbor (Co-Founder/Captain) and Dave @Djproulx (Captain) are the other Captains for WE ARE THE WARRIORS!

A bit about me! I was a former Business Owner/VP/Analyst (love numbers) and now retired with my awesome hubby. I enjoy 😉 traveling, hiking, cooking, golf, horses and our new Peloton bike! Also, I love MFP!

Why I wanted to lose weight?
Last December I was looking at photos from Thanksgiving and I wasn’t happy with what I saw. I didn’t like how I looked, however, more importantly I didn’t like how I felt. I knew it was time for change. January started with “dry January”, Barre and a healthy diet. I didn’t see initially the pounds flying off like they did in my 20’s, I was frustrated, however, I knew it would take time. The pounds started coming off. I give a lot of credit to MyFitnessPal community of all the support and encouragement!! I knew I wouldn’t qui!

With the help of this awesome team, I have lost 20 pounds!!

Let’s feel great from the inside out! 👍👍👍

    This 30-Day Gratitude Challenge is a super simple way to being a happier you.

    Looking around your world and finding the things you love makes you slowly become more appreciative of your surroundings and more willing to acknowledge them.

    “Gratitude helps you fall in love with the life you already have.”

    #1 I am thankful for my healthy body that can move and workout! I remind myself on days when I don’t feel like it to put a smile on my face and move it!! 💃

    Gratitude Challenge.
    “Gratitude helps you fall in love with the life you already have.” I love this quote!
    Day 1: Something about my body.
    I'm grateful for my health above all else. As I age, I hope to maintain it for as long as possible.

    Hi all! Sorry I didn't check in for the last week. Been busy and have kept up my streak. Hope everyone is doing well :)

    Keep up the good work...Did you write more on your book? I'd love to read it when you're done:smiley:

    Replying back from Oct thread.
    I've actually been doing a bunch of homestead things and cleaning. Once it's too cold out I'll be able to get back to my writing. I've only one more project I need to get done asap and that's making a place for fodder growing station. Then I just have to focus on saving for the fence and dairy sheep. Both together will set be back about $5k. The fence will be around 3k and the trio of dairy sheep plus rental vehicle and the small house for the trio will be around 2k.
