Participating in the 5% Challenge

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

This time, I think I am ready to make the Fall 5% Challenge a success for me! I've participated in a few of these challenges, but never with much success. In fact, it was without any challenge that I managed to lose 35 lbs back in 2013. It's all in my stubborn head - I will succeed if I keep believing in myself! That is hard to do sometimes, but a little help from my fellow challengers might push me when I need that extra motivation. Another thing that helps is gathering positive evidence that I CAN do this! Yesterday, I managed to get through a family get-together without any unwanted calories, which is a major win considering ALL family get-togethers in Slovenia include mountains of unhealthy foods, sweets included (and those are very often my downfall). This time around, I concentrated on enjoying the conversations with other people, yes it was hard to keep my hands away from the food, but I did it! I can do hard things.

What wins are proof that You can do it?
If you want to join the 5% Challenge, I think there is still time:
