Well, in spite of the heads up on the holiday gain, and knowing that it happens to me every year, and trying to NOT let it happen again... it did. :/ Oh well, I sure hope I can get back under control in less than 22 weeks, though! I'm going to try.

We only have one real holiday celebration these days and that's with our kids. Usually it's early in the day and I make a nice brunch but this year it was late afternoon and the football game was on first. So I made a lot of finger foods. I'm so busy that day that there's little time for chowing down and the kids take home the left overs. So it's a win for me. It makes no sense to me to eat so much over the holidays that you have to deal with it later - and 22 weeks is a LONG time!

That's interesting information, but since I haven't felt very well since Saturday with my stomach, I have not been eating as much. My husband is already being mindful, so he will help me in being mindful as well.

In the past, I would traditionally take part in a food/drink "free for all" from Halloween through the New Year. When I was younger, I'd gain a pound or two during this food orgy period and then would lose it rather quickly once the new year started. Now that I'm 58, the same parameters no longer apply! I made up my mind in October to not only eat gratefully throughout the holidays but would attempt to drop some weight. I lost a few pounds on my own, then was Blessed to discover the Fall 5% Challenge. So glad I did! I've lost 10+ lbs and I feel great. I'm looking forward to the Winter Challenge - VERY worthwhile.

emoticon & emoticon Welcome 5% Challengers new and returning. The countdown to the Challenge is so exciting as we gather together and get ready for take-off.

emoticon 5% Challenge will be Saturday January 5, 2019

This is not a Self Fulfilling Prophecy, but today your weight is likely the lowest it will be for the rest of the year UNLESS you take immediate action. Events like Hanukkah, Christmas, New Year's, parties, etc. are all occasions where we tend to overeat or make poor food choices. ďAnything that happens in these weeks before New Years, on average, takes about five months to come off,Ē said Prof. Brian Wansink of Cornellís business school.

That's 22 weeks to take off the weight we could gain in the weeks, leading up to New Years.

emoticon We have 405 members now. If you are a blogger please mention the 2019 Winter 5% Challenge and invite your friends to join. You can use the 'Share This Post With Others' button under a blog too. This will help us recruit new members. This link is to our Community page.

ividual.asp?gid=70348


Our Leaders are setting up the Challenge behind the scenes. Your team invitation will be going out in the next few weeks so and you will have time to get to know your leaders and team mates. On the FIRST DAY of the Challenge, please weigh in and note your weight so you have it ready to record on your team page. If you will be away please post earlier, before you leave.

IMPORTANT NOTE - The 5% Challenge Teams are very active teams. There are expectations of you as a member. You will record your daily exercise minutes and Living the Good Life points (future Weekly Challenge themes) by Friday midnight each week. Also please record your weekly weigh in by Saturday 11:59 PM (or your preferred day earlier in the week). When you join your team, your Team Leader and team mates are there to help you and answer your questions on how to do this.

Please feel free to add your comments, plans and suggestions here. emoticon
