Smile Losing by the tens

Anyone want to sign up to lose 10 pounds??

10 little pounds is easy peasy, and in 10 pounds time I will be back at what I consider my top riding weight....although I have ridden heavier, go figure.

So I have 10 pounds to lose, and then another, and again, etc, to many to worry about, such a big number it's scary, so 10 pounds it is.

I pledge to lose 10 pounds, by continuing to finish the Medifast meals I have in the cupboard, and by increasing (which means start)my exercise routine.

I refuse to set a timeline for losing, as long as I stick to the diet I will lose, but I can't MAKE my body shed on my terms.

Most definitely.

I pledge to lose 10 pounds by watching what I eat, and exercising! At least running 1 mile a day. (Hopefully twice a day!)

I will update at least once a week.

OK. I'll pledge to attempt to lose 10 lbs. I will weigh myself tonight and let you know where I am starting from. I started doing sit-ups just yesterday and while I'm embarrassed to admit that it was all I could do to complete 30 (yes 30 is all I could do)... I did it. I also did 30 push-ups. I got up this morning and did it again! I'm going to try to do it tonight as well. So I'll try 30 sit-ups twice a day (and push-ups) and I'll try to walk at least 3 times a week.

I'm going to try to lose the weight by eating more healthy as I am a fried food and butter fanatic....

By walking around the boundry of my 9 acre paddocks three times every day with my dog. And watching what I eat.

( the farmer will think I have lost the plot lol )

I'm in too GH! I'll pledge to lose 10. (And hopefully another 10 after that!) I'd really like to get into my favorite pair of old broken in jeans.

I've already started, but I'm doing it by using my elliptical trainer for 45 minutes every night. I am also playing Wii Dance with my kiddo. I will also give up my one Coke a day

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
