“Stay focused, and remember it is life style change.”
I entered the Weight Loss Challenge #2 competition having lost 68 pounds since the beginning of February 2011. I lost an additional 17 pounds and finished 14th in the competition. I appreciate the emphasis on life style changes. I had a few challenges during the trial that tried to “derail” my workout plan. I stayed focused and remembered it is a life style change, a week or two does not make or break you. I had
an emergency appendectomy while on vacation that kept me from exercising a couple of weeks. I also fell and pulled a muscle prior to Thanksgiving, that also halted my exercise. I encourage folks to “remember one day at a time” and “don’t be too hard on yourself”. I look forward to January 2012. I should have about 10 pounds to go and I will be successful this time on the all important MAINTENANCE.
