Doing it 10lbs at a Time...

I was going to post about this on Friday, but I've started a new blog that goes along with this, so join me for a little bit of tooting my own horn.

So back in Nov. my doctor recommended that I lose some weight, and I was like, well duh. So I threw myself a pity party for 2 months, then got over it. And on Jan. 2nd I joined a group of ladies to try and lose 10lbs in 6 weeks. I got serious about exercise & eating. Started using myfitnessplan.com (thanks Jenny!) to manage what I was eating. I've started eating better & drinking loads of water (even though I hate water.)

Friday is the end of the challenge, and if you scroll down to the bottom of my blog, not only have I already lost 10lbs, I've actually lost 18lbs! Yay me! I've still got a ways to go though...

Which is why I've started a new blog 10in6.blogspot.com. My last group has kind of fizzled and nobody really participates anymore. While I'm going to try and continue over there, I'm looking for a new group to help motivate one another to live a healthier life style. Would you like to join me? I'd love to have you! We're starting Monday. Even if you're not looking to lose 10 lbs or more, but you just want to maintain, we could use your support. So come on over!
