Why I'm a 5%er
Sunday, May 27, 2018
As I sit here and try to write this blog, I keep trying to come up with some glitzy phrase or jingle that will catch the eye. Something that will give me a starting point from which to brag about my Team, my pride, my resolve and my devotion to the 5% Challenge Community and its purpose. It is my higher calling. The 5% Challenge is a great opportunity to improve, develop and shape yourself into someone healthier and more fit. It is an opportunity to participate in fun, friendly, exciting competition with others in a Team and Community environment. It is the opportunity to improve, encourage and support while you strive to meet your goals as the member of a group of likeminded individuals The 5% Challenge is an opportunity to be the best that you can be, solidify good habits and learn what works for you. The 5% Challenges are designed to help you lose 5% of your weight, healthily in 8 weeks. We are a Community, in the sense that we all have the same basic goals and desires. We all want to be better than we were yesterday . The Community is comprised of Teams. There are 14 in all, so there is plenty of room for everyone interested in competing. First as a ROOKIE, then as a ROWDY REBEL I have lost 40 pounds. We virtually fly to exotic and interesting places weekly. We race to our destinations and compete with exercise minutes (air miles), Living The Good Life habit developing tasks and our weekly weigh ins. We are awarded points for air miles and LGTL tasks and we try to beat the other teams at weight loss. It is a blast, more than enjoyable and satisfying to be a part of a whole. Your Team and the Community are supportive and encouraging. If you are interested in excitement and adventure, come try us out. We have spirit and spunk. My team, the ROWDY REBELS, is one of the spunkiest and we are successful in achieving our goals.
