Joining the 8-week Let’s Get Physical Weight Loss Challenge

I did it! I joined Wendy’s 8 week weight loss challenge starting September 4th. The Facebook group is already hopping with discussions about weight loss plans, types of exercise, where people are from and how they plan to tackle the 8 weeks facing us all. Though winning the monetary prizes is appealing, we all know that we win when we can fit into clothes that we have grown out of and feel good about our bodies. Women in the group are from all over the country.

I have already started by joining the Y again (and actually going to the Y again), walking with a friend in the mornings now that school has started back and using the Lose-It app for accountability. It works and I am already losing weight – slowly – but I feel like I am getting in gear for the challenge, buying the dri-fit shirts and spandex that I don’t dare wear without shorts over them yet. My Lose-It app is set for the calories it would take to lose 2 lbs a week (the highest option) which means unless I work it hard I will only lose maybe 16-20 pounds over the challenge and I want to lose 40, which is why I am getting started now and will probably be looking at closer to a 16 week personal challenge to lose more.

Are you looking to lose weight? Do you need a group to motivate and encourage you? Join us! It really has been interesting already to see the discussions in the group about paleo diets versus Weight Watchers, etc.  I think this is going to be a good thing!
