    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    CHALLENGE 3, from this day forward also known as C3
    THE 10 DAY CHALLENGE

    Celebrate your July 4......


    ON FRIDAY the 5th , 2013.....
    WE BEGIN.....




    Everyone welcome, Newbies and Oldies

    Note:
    This IS NOT a competition between challenge participants, it IS a competition with YOUR OWN inner child(who wants to eat whatever and whenever they want and not exercise)

    We have group weightloss and inches lost goals.
    AS A GROUP, we are ALL responsible for eachother, group morale, group support, and above all OUR OWN ACTIONS toward attaining group goals.

    RULES OF ENGAGEMENT:
    Put your inner child in the corner and get on with it...

    1. FULL ACCOUNTABILITY, NO EXCEPTIONS!

    2. DAILY AM WEIGH IN (after first potty, and BEFORE anything passes your lips)and FIRST DAY MEASUREMENTS ARE A MUST, as are the mid challenge and FINAL ones. So that we can keep track of how we are doing.

    3. COMMIT TO THE FULL 10 DAYS.



    ***Have a scale or access to one, and a sewing tape measure or very flexible small tape measure(like a purse one) ****

    I WILL POST VERY EARLY FRIDAY TO START US OUT. FOLLOW MY LEAD ON WHAT TO POST AND WHAT TO MEASURE. IT'LL BE EASIER.
    ALL DAILY POSTS WILL BE NUMBERED AND TITLED SO THAT THEY WILL BE EASY TO FIND FOR PARTICIPANTS
    IF YOU ARE ON EARLIER IN THE AM and a challenge discussion hasn't been started for that day GO AHEAD AND START THAT DAY'S DISCUSSION, JUST USE PRIOR DAYS AS EXAMPLES PLEASE


    I'll keep tabs, do the calculations and remind everyone of when to remeasure. But DAILY community AM WEIGH INS AND FOOD/EXERCISE LOGGING IS REQUIRED
    this means not just on your logs, but HERE on the community discussion page. Everyone cheers participants on even if they themselves aren't in the challenge.

    This is the 3rd Challenge for some of us.
    Please remember this is to reset our personal accountability to our journeys and to ourselves. To be true to what we can do if we put our minds to it.

    Let the Game begin! Let's do better than last time! Let's make #3 better than 1 or 2.

    Start getting your mind in gear. Put it on the calendar. Trash those moose tracks. Banish Cheetos! Pitch the Bisquik and the pancake syrup. Let your whole family know that 10 days of total fat war are coming. Kim has declared a Fat War!!!!

    Post your starting weight and measurements on the fridge. Carry emergency snacks for when you're out. This is WAR!!

    Smoochie,
    Sharon

    PS Do you think my medication needs adjusting?
