**~Joined a Challenge, Joined a Gym~**

Monday, April 21, 2014

So awesomeness! This is my first ever Sparkpeople blog and I'm really excited!!!

Ok so for the first part "Joined a Challenge" - On one of my teams 300 lbs + their hosting a Spring Biggest Loser Challenge. We all were given teams and I'm on Team ~*Puddle Stompers*~ Yay Me!

The team really does ROCK too! I spent the better half of an hour working on friending my 19 team mates last night and it was worth it :D Getting to know everyone a little better will help when it comes to giving motivation and staying connected and such :) This challenge is going to do wonders for motivation and has inspired me to go further with my weight loss endeavor which brings me to my second part...

Onward to "Joined a Gym". So here's the thing I have been majorly slacking on exercise lately it's just a sad fact. When I first started my adventure on losing weight I was in high gear ready to take on activity at any level just to get some time in but then I started easing off and once I started doing that it was a slippery slope indeed. Not to mention I live in a apartment on the third floor so it's difficult to jump around like I wish, especially to get full impact throughout the workout.

However I totally own up to not exercising and am not making an excuse as to why I haven't because of my apartment level. It's more so to explain why moving towards joining a gym was a good decision for me. I joined a gym that is 24/7 which RULES all because my hours can be strange and if that's not awesome enough, I have two family members (my mother and sister) that are going to join me!!!! WHAT!! Talk about AWESOME! Neither have nearly as much weight to loss as me but that's not really the point, I'm just glad to have the company.

I can't tell you how excited I am to kick my butt into shape at the gym and get to know my teammates better throughout the challenge. Here's to everyone out there making a choice to make a difference in their lives so they can live life the way they wish to! Stay strong, push on and be POSITIVE!!! You can so DO this :)



We all had to weigh in for the challenge and I decided that I would snap pictures of my progress weekly and post them with my blogs...talk about accountability :p Gain or loss I'll post. I used a random Mii character and named it SpringBLC :p

    Thank you!!!!

    I agree when you pay for it you really want to get every dollars worth in :D Thanks for the other comments as well as your always so supportive and it helps me push through. Also... GO team Puddle Stompers!!! emoticon


    Yeah I wouldn't normally have taken pictures but my sister told me that once I lose the weight she wanted to put the pictures together and make some sort of video or collage so that it can help with my maintenance afterwards. I thought that was such an excellent idea because what's better than seeing yourself make progress and then wanting to keep it.

    Then of course I had the idea to snap shots of the wii screen for the current BLC and I really like it because it's going to be a very visible indicator of my progress good or bad :D I don't really like taking pictures though but I must say that you saying you wish you had more does make me feel much better about it because I do think it'll be a worthy cause emoticon Thank you for that!

    Taking weekly pictures & monthly measurement shows your progress. I didn't do that and now with close to 100# gone, I wish I had as many tell me I am still losing while the scale doesn't move. It's a good motivator!!!

    I'm so glad you decided to make a blog! *Subscribed* Congrats on joining a gym AND getting family to join and be active with you! emoticon BONUS! There's something about spending money to work out that just makes you have to go even when you don't want to because you realize you're spending money everyday.

    Go Team Puddle Stompers! emoticon
