Weight Loss Challenge

My next challenge starts on August 1st and ends on October 27th. These challenges are crucial to weight loss. They are the mini goals that get you to the big goal. The big goal can become too overwhelming. The mini goals keep you on track. My goal is to lose 25 lbs during the 90-day period.

I would like to challenge you to tackle your weight loss goals during this same 90-day period, as well. Let's do it together. On August 1st, email me your starting weight. In the weeks to follow email me your new weight. If you are struggling with the disciplines, need help with a plan or just need a place to vent, you can comment on my blog and others can help you through it. It has been one of the most effective tools for me in my weight loss. There is no judgment. You can scream and yell on here or tell us about your victories that day.

Quite a few people will shy away from this because of the accountability (by the way that is not a four-letter word). Accountability to many people, means your failure is highlighted. If you really want to lose weight and are ready to jump in with both feet, accountability is necessary. If you do not want the accountability because you do not think you will stick with the program, then this is not for you. All it will do is continue the cycle of disappointment and self-hate. Only step into accountability if you are ready to commit to this challenge. It does not mean you aren't scared, nervous or intimidated. Those feelings are normal. It means you are sick and tired of sitting on the side lines of your life. You are sick and tired of being sick and tired and you are ready to do something about it, fear or not. There will be struggles, and that is why having people who are going through the same thing is so good.

If you are ready to "do this thing", then join with me. Meet your ultimate weight loss goal or your first goal before the holidays.

Please email your starting weight to sandy@sandysjourney.com on August 1st and write your comments about your victories and/or struggles on my blog.
