Every morning since I've started blogging, I find a couple of weight loss blogs to follow. This morning, I found For The Love of Me. Right now, she is working on a challenge to lose 40 lbs. in 111 days! She even made a super-cute, tear-away, countdown calendar to keep her motivated. I loved her brilliant idea, so I'm borrowing it :)
Here's the link to her challenge: http://1girlgettinfit.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-homage-to-111-days-to-go.html
My challenge to myself is to lose 50 lbs. (not counting the 14 lbs. that I have already lost) by my 32nd birthday (May 29). I'm going to start the countdown on Monday, so that gives me 118 days to reach my goal. If I can continue to lose weight at an average of 3 lbs. per week, then I'll make it!
50 POUNDS IN 118 DAYS!
P.S. Have y'all seen that show, "I Used to be Fat," on MTV? If those people can lose 90-100 lbs. over a summer...then I can lose 50 lbs by my b'day!
