Is It Time Yet?

I am sorry I have taken so long to get back on here.  I worked yesterday until 8pm then off to Target.  It was the last night at Target...HOOOO RAH!!!!  I came home this morning slept and then back to work.  I finally got a chance to sit down and blog a little bit.



I was so excited last night at work, not so much because it was my last night, but because all night long I was getting emails from more people wanting to take part in my little challenge.  We are up to about 20 people now and about 4 that want to play that don't have quite 30 pounds to lose.  I also thought about the program all night long.  Should I gain a few before we start?  I'm not going to intentionally gain but I am going to be a little bit lenient on my diet for the next day.  Can I do this?  WHY NOT!!!!  Is this too crazy or too big of a goal?  I would rather have a goal that was too high than not try at all.  And so many more.  I am scared, but I am going to do everything in my power to lose this 30 lbs.  I will not say try because try is just a fancy word that gives you an excuse to fail.  I don't try, I do! and I either succeed or fail.

I am so excited to start but I will not lie, I am a lot scared.  This is such a huge undertaking.  I really feel like I need to set an example and lose the 30 lbs, but I have so much doubt.  I don't know if I can actually do it.  All I know to do is give it everything Ive got.  I was so full of doubt when I started this blog and my initial weight loss so maybe, just maybe I can do this.

I also wanted to let everyone in on the plan.  This is not a guarantee, 30 lbs in 30 days.  There is no magic diet or super duper workout that can be done.  This is a diet and exercise program with a goal that is almost too big to even wrap my mind around.  It is completely work, diet, balls to the wall exercise, and plain ol willpower.  As far as the goal being set so high....why not, who wants to set a goal that is easy.  As I always heard, "shoot for the moon, even if you miss you will land upon the stars."

I have to commend all the women that are playing.  They are taking on a huge challenge as well and I am sure their minds are working like mine all the time.

I hope you all will follow along with me and the other players.  We start Monday morning.  If you still want in all you have to do is send me an email with your picture and weight. fatgirltothin@gmail.com I'm so excited to get this started.

I hope you will all follow along with the progress of me and other girls playing.  I hope you can provide some encouragement for us...we are going to need all the help we can get.

Enjoy tomorrow girls because this thing will kick off early Monday morning!  Good Luck!

I'm eating a few things that I love which I know I won't be able to eat for 30 days (i.e. pasta, steak, ice cream, pizza) but keeping up my normal weekend workouts. Starting monday, it's balls to the wall time...and let's face it, this is a numbers game more than anything (how much can I workout, how many calories do I consume knowing that 1 pound is 3,500 cals?)

ok Elizabeth...you are the official cheerleader, no skirt needed...we require those little teeny tiny running shorts!

Elizabeth said...
