I joined a very exciting challenge 'X-WEIGHTED #14 CHALLENGE FOR WOLF SPIRIT' SparkTeam. My new friend, Alley suggested it. I thought well why not, I can be held accountable. I nearly backed out, I read where you had to post your weight to the board for everyone to see! Mind you, my ex husband of 32 years, nor my mom, knows how much I weigh. I have been so embarrassed. Well, I thought to myself, put it out there and see if it embarrasses you enough to lose weight and complete the challenge. I have been dieting my whole life, but I have never had the support that I have received this week. I have made new SP friends, I have tried so hard not to let them down, or myself. I weighed in this morning, I have lost 5.3 lb ! I hollered out loud, "Thank you Jesus!" Why did it work this week and not last week? I committed myself so I didn't let anyone on my team down, including me. And second, the support that I received from my team and both of the other teams! We were all cheering on each other. I didn't feel like I was alone in the fight. Alley, thank you for bringing me to this challenge and especially to a wonderful group of supportive people on Wolf spirit team! And thanks to the other two teams as well. You are all amazing!! It is an 8 week challenge and I am so excited what I will have to report each week!
