My Weight Loss Progress

Slimmer This Summer

I'm joining Angela Pea at Keeping the Faith,  Debbie at Debbie Does Dieting, and many others in the "Slimmer This Summer" challenge. I'm starting late but here goes.

Basic plan:

1. Blog our goals!! 
a) Exercise:  My initial goal is just to walk daily without beating myself up, wear a pedometer and record total miles. 

b) Watch my food intake, recording it daily, and hope to lose at least 5 pounds by the end of 11 1/2 weeks.  

c) Drink the minimum 1/2 gallon of water daily, plus herb teas and limited fruit juice.

d) Measurements? Weight? I'd like to lose at least one dress size, take the elastic in on all my skirts, and lose at least 5 pounds. I know muscle tone makes a big difference to my size and how I look.

2. Tracking and journaling is essential.
Besides the daily food track, I will update my progress weekly on  my blog. I'll link it up to the challenge.

3. Don't quit!  No winners or losers. If I have a bad week, I'll get over it and get back on track. That's what I'm here for, to stay on track!   Challengers should have fun with this. 

4. Support other challengers. I'll comment on at least two other blog posts each week. 


  1. Great goals! Stick with them and you'll have success! Let's not have any bad weeks, only good ones for the next 12 weeks! :-)

  2. Yeah!!! Oh Lynn, I am SO GLAD you're hopping in. Don't give up. Never, ever, ever!
