Great to have you! Let me define "1/2 of the exercise challenges", when it says burn 500 calories, you only have to do 250. If it says 45 minutes of strength, you only have to do 22.5 min. Okay, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. Welcome again!

Hi Pauline,

I wish you all the best with your camping trip. I will be praying you have wonderful weather and it isn't rainy or too hot. We are looking for a heat wave next week.

I am most definitely a beginner. I can walk down our small hill to the mailbox and have to stop part of the way up to catch my breath.

Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started.

Michelle

Not gone yet, in work now. We may not even leave until Sunday evening, since Monday may be the only good day, weather wise. We'll see!

Anyway welcome Michelle, of course you can join. If you are a beginner exerciser, you only have to do half of the exercise challenges. I will give you a team assignment and you can start on Monday. Good luck!

Hi Lady_Donkey,

I love the name. I think I may be as stuborn as a donkey when it comes to giving up my bad habits.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Hi Anne-Marie,

Thanks for the warm welcome. It sounds like this group is just what I need. I am sure I will need to be kicked quite frequently. emoticon

Where do I need to post that I want to participate in the August Challenge? Monday's team assignment will be just fine. I have been wanting to go camping for a long time, but the weekend we had it planned, my Mom got very sick. We are hoping to go in the Fall.

Hi Michelle, welcome to the team. You should find lots of support on this team. We're a pretty close bunch and try to help each other as much as we can. Even give each other a little kick in the butt once in a while to get us back in the right direction.

The August challenge starts on Monday, let Pauline know you want to join the challenge so she can add you to one of the team. Don't worry if it's not done right away, she might have already left for her week-end camping trip, but she'll do it for sure on Monday

Good luck on your journey.

I was just looking through some of the team challenges and an August challenge thread was listed on the right side of the page. I clicked on it and it brought me to this team. It looks like just what I need.

I am trying to make healthy choices, while break bad choices and can't seem to get things going in the right direction. I am involved in two other teams, but got lost and covered up in different threads and challenges. Then I felt I was just floundering.

If you will have me I would love to join you. I think a fresh start and a smaller group is just what I need.

Now to introduce myself....

My name is Michelle. I just turned 40 last Tuesday. I am married and have a 7 year old daughter. I am 5 foot tall and need to lose almost 1/2 of my body weight, almost 100 pounds. I am a compulsive eater and also do most of my eating late in the evening. I am also addicted to soda. I really need help and a large dose of will power.

I look forward to meeting all of you.
