Winning in Winter: Letter to Self ~ Week 1
Thursday, December 22, 2011
So, I have put off writing this letter until the very last minute. Not sure why, except that leading the Lime Team has seemed a bit more overwhelming this season. We have sooo many new people and I want to be a good leader and help them along with their goals and not let them down. I LIKE having new people on the team, it's just that since I have been leading the Limes it is unusual to have THIS many new members. While it is exciting, I have this fear that I might let someone down or something. Some of my members even new ones seem to be doing so much better than me and I fear that as a leader I am not setting as good of an example as I need to be.
That said, here is my letter:
As you look back and you read what you wrote above, you will smile, because even though you floundered some the first couple weeks of the challenge getting your bearings, you set a very good example for those you led in the winter lime team challenge.
As you said at the end of the Fall Challenge (see last blog), you have focused on making healthy HABITS this winter. Each week (after the first two), you took a habit and worked on it and tried to add to it each week. You still participated in the challenges more just like you did in Fall and you used them to help you with your healthy habits you chose to work on each week.
You got over your gain from the first week and turned it around and have ended up with an overall loss from the beginning start weight to the last weigh-in. Overall, you have had a good winter and have helped to develop a strong team with lots of support and good friendships/relationships formed.
It's time to look ahead and make some new goals for Spring now, you can do it, you are ready.
