What about ROCKETS for the name?
Reprimand???? I work better with rewards...... For example on July 8th I will reward myself with a pedicure for successfully completing the week one of our challenge. Each week I will reward myself.
Drizzy- you could make a sign and hold it on a busy street with your EXCUSE why you could not "do" what you needed to do and post a picture or video. Each time you mess up you should remove a clothing item. I think that might help motivate you??
I am trying to post a profile picture....... how??
One foot in front of the other, just keep moving!
i started june 11, did not do well.
restarting july 2
one thing i would like to say is for the first 2 weeks i was eating clean. this last week i havnt been eating well at all, and let me tell you people, i can feel the difference. i remeber when i did the challenge 7 years ago (i did 3 back to back, i lost a ton of weight.) but what i remeber the most was how i felt. it was amazing.
thats what i am looking forward to the most is feeling great, of course i was to look great to. when my alram would go off i was no longer hitting the snoze button 2-3 times, i didnt hit that slump around 3:00pm, i had no trouble falling asleep, my skin looked great, i wasnt popping tums all night long.
anyway, thats what i need to focus on is feeling better and getting all of the above list gone from my life.
so i will be here trying to stay focused.
I dont know how i stumbbled across this site but i need to lose 2 stone! as i sit reading this with another stella getting chucked down my neck!
is there room for a Scottish blood in your team?
Live for today as tomorrow is never promised!
Mind if I join this "no bs" group? Exactly what I need come July 1st!!
Starting a new post..... look for ROCKET
I would also like to jump on board. I started with a group in may, but fell off the wagon. Looking to start again on Monday, and finish the challenge this time!
My husband and I are starting a new challenge today as well. I would love to join your group. Like LauraJean, we used the BFL ideas and over the course of about 6 months, I lost 50 pounds. I remember on our free days, I might get a cheeseburger and fries and I couldn't really finish. Of course, I did, but felt bloated. Well now, I get fast food and think I could really go for more! Also, I felt so energized on the program. Now, my workouts consist of getting from the couch to the laundry room and carrying the clothes basket- LOL!
I'd like to lose 25 pounds and turn the flab into muscle! I've got to increase my energy level! Last week, I wouldn't even go to Sea World with my husband and 5 year old. I claimed it was because of the Texas heat, but I was just too lazy to walk around the park - how pathetic!!
The hardest part is just getting started...each day.
Let's do this!
Good Luck, Everybody:)
Great! This thread is CLOSED
LOOK FOR TEAM ROCKET!
Count me in! I lost 18 lbs last Oct-Jan 2012, and would like another 15 off through BFL. I've been working @ Insanity and walking (both 3-4 days/week), with a couple of friends for several months, and now am ready to have a more balanced diet again. Going on a family vacay end of this week, but planning to take fruits/veggies and other good-for-you-foods, so keeping on track should not be problematic. Also, we always hike and are active during this annual techno-free week in the mountains, so I don't expect issues re: falling off the wagon. Good luck to the rest of you who are starting this month!
I am starting the Challenge tomorrow too. 6:00a.m. workout here I come.
jengary, I'm with you on the Texa heat.Three or more summers ago I did marching band and it was in 100 degrees F* for 60 days straight.
