OH YAY, I'm so excited about this post. It's Friday, you see, and I've decided to do something AMAZING today - and every Friday for the next trillion years or so.
Barb is a new friend of mine that I met in Philly while attending the casting call for Biggest Loser. We actually met the night before at a wonderful meet 'n' greet, hosted by another fab new friend (more on that some other time OR you can wait for the book, geesh).
ANYway, Barb is part of our little group of go-getting weight loss champions on Facebook (hosted by ANOTHER fab new Philly friend - stay tuned for my post about Steffie soon enough, too) and Barb began a wonderful challenge for us, nearly 3 weeks ago.
Lose 1000 pounds.
WOW. That's a lot of butter, folks.
But what a great way to share support and encouragement. 15 of us signed up and we are well on our way - with 118 pounds lost so far - to saying ADIOS to those pesky 1000 pounds.
One of the BEST parts of Barb's challenge is that she sends out a daily tip, Monday - Friday, to each of us in the challenge. These tips range from what to eat to how to stay focused; and are really helpful in keeping us all on track. Members of the challenge can then respond with their input and because we are all different, with different ways of doing things, it's really been AWEsome to see what everybody is doing to help us reach our goal.
So now that we have a good two weeks worth of tips under our belts (and tucked away in a special folder at my email) I have decided - with Barb's blessing - to bring these tips to all my readers.
We'll do it once a week, on Fridays, so all of you can learn what's working for us, which will THEN help you be successful too. YAY!
Ready for Barb's first fabulous tip?
