I am determined to be as healthy as I can be at this stage of life. I want my clothes to fit better and put this weight behind me. l

My Goals:
1, To become consistent doing daily stretching & knee exercises as part of my exercise routine..
2. To participate in the Winter Challenge and get my focus back on healthy eating & exercise.
3. My ultimate long range goal is to prevent developing type 2 diabetes (Stong family history).

My Program:
1. To record my food intake on a daily basis.
2. Emphasis on LTGL, increased fruits & veggies and 8 cups fluid daily..
2. Walking 30 minutes daily along with stretching and strength training 3 days/week.

Personal Information:
I have struggled with losing weight my whole life. I have always carried 10-30 extra pounds.
I am frustrated I gained back my loss. Need to lose again and keep off

    If you are keeping track of your weight for the In Between Challenge don't forget to fill in the template tomorrow, Saturday. During this challenge each member sets their own weight loss goals, even if that is just to maintain or to gain less than you would if you weren't checking in. No one is monitoring your weight. You need not post your weight unless doing so benefits you. There will, however, be a template available so you can keep track weekly.

    emoticon 5% Challenge is almost done!
    Here is a little reminder to post any of your daily exercise and LTGL points before 11:59 PM tonight Friday your time that have not been already posted. Don't forget weigh in is tomorrow Saturday by 11:59 PM but you can do it earlier if needed. Early is always good for weighing in but late is not!

    No matter how you did, we are glad you were here. It was rough for some of us in one way or another but we finished as a team. You are a Firecracker!!!
