Where Do We Stand?
We just entered into our FINAL WEEK of the weight loss challenge & so many people have done an INCREDIBLE job!
As a group of 30 people, we have lost a total of 130 pounds over the course of 8 short weeks!
Some people/teams faded away into the evening sunset but the majority of teams & team members are still going strong… great job everyone! You are all very encouraging and very inspirational.
To change it up a little bit… I’m going to ask that each member of the weight loss challenge leave a comment detailing their biggest key to success.
I will start the forum off by giving my two largest keys to success here:
- I stopped gorging myself at meals & switched to smaller more frequent meals.
- I switched to eating predominately local, organic, healthy foods as much as possible. In an effort to not waste money or make to extreme of a change, me & my wife committed to finishing up our “bad” groceries then buying increasingly more healthy from that point forward. What kicked it into high gear for my wife was watching the movie Food, Inc. It is a MUST watch.
