Now it hurts…
My weight has gotten to the point where now, it hurts. And not just hurts in a way like my knees hurt or back hurts, though I’ve been having issues there as well. It hurts to wear jeans. I’m usually a size 34, but now those jeans cause my physical pain around the waist to wear. Ouch.
So once again I try to refocus myself and concentrate on the weight loss. The last time I lost any significant amount of weight was back at the start of the year when I was in the Do it for your selfie Challenge with my pal John. I lost about 13-15 pounds. That contest sort of fizzled out for various reasons, so I lost focus and gained it all back. And then some.
My goal has always been to get to 160 lbs, but that is far, far away from this point. I then revised my goal to just lose 10 lbs. Now my goal is to just get through one day of eating right! Ugh. It’s awful.
So now I’m wondering if there’s anyone out there who’d love to jump into a challenge to try and drop some pounds before the end of the year. I know the holidays are tough with the cookies and treats, but I think we can do it.
The winner would be the person who lost the most percentage of weight in the given time, say December 1-31. No need to post weights anywhere or even share them with me, I trust you my dear friends. We would just check in every week with the percentage lost. I just think the ‘challenge’ idea works for me as it did earlier this year and I’d love to find someone to challenge.
No prizes. No loser humiliations. Just a weight loss challenge.
Anyone up for trimming down? Let me know in the comments below or via email grant @ throwing toasters . com (no spaces)
I’m already on a plan but I am up for a challenge. I already lost 23 lbs since start of November btw and have 30lbs left to loose.
Welcome aboard Tom! Let’s do this!
Desperately need an incentive to stick to my diet. I’m in!
