Day 1

Welcome to you all! I host these challenges every month. And when I looked at the calendar for December, I tried to figure out a good time to host. My mind immediately went to, "I'll never lose weight during the holidays." My usual MO is to eat with reckless abandon. Cookies, treats, pastries...you name it. And I excuse every bit of it because it was the holidays. Every January 1, I dreaded the past month. And there I was again with making a resolution to lose weight - and several pounds of it from December alone. Why do I do this to myself?

And so as I looked at the calendar, I decided to try something different this year. This year I decided to stop that cycle.

January 1, 2018 I weighed myself. And was so disappointed that I had gained weight the previous year. I worked hard all of 2018 to lose weight. I was at my lowest back in May. And I'm up about 7 lbs from that low weight. My goal by the end of this challenge is to be back at that May weight. And if I'm successful, I will greet January 1, 2019 down 25 lbs from where I was the year before.

I know this one won't be easy. December is a difficult time to lose weight. We have to navigate holiday parties, holiday cookies, celebrations, etc. But we're in this together. We can share healthy versions of those indulgent recipes that we usually eat this time of year so we don't feel totally deprived. We'll keep moving all month. We will put in the work that's required to reach our goal.

So that's my WHY I am doing this challenge. Tell me your WHY in the comments.

My why, motivation to move & to keep accountable. I’m on a journey down, just broke through the obese category, I’m finally “overweight”. 30 lbs. at least to release. Hope to win the walking challenges (I’ll participate in all of them and therefore “win”.) Love ya Jen!


I turned 60 this year and about to outlive my mother. I want to be an example for my children. I also have major stomach issues secondary to an autoimmune disease called IgA deficiency. I just believe that things will be better if I can go on and lose another 25 pounds. I’ve dropped gluten and refined sugar from my diet. The pounds are coming off slowly. I’m competitive and these challenges fit my personality to a tee! Let’s have some fun!
