Spring In2 Action Challenge: Week 1

Well it is the start of another challenge over at Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. It is called Spring In2 Action and I am so excited to be participating.  This time I am not going this alone.  We were to sign up with a buddy.  So, I joined up with Emy, another mom blogger who I have become bloggy friends with.  I had no idea she was starting a weight loss journey and I am so glad we are both participating in the same challenges.

We were given the option of choosing a name for our team.  Emy suggested a few different names and I really loved "Wannabe Fit Moms."  So that is what we are.  She must really of loved the name, as her blog has been renamed Wannabe Fit Moms, head on over and check it out.

I am looking forward to continuing to implement the tips I have learned both at the Sisterhood and Plus Size Bloggers in this journey.  And I am looking forward to learning new tips. I am also looking forward to making new friends and encouraging one another.

I started out this challenge at 237.7, the weight I recorded at the end of the last challenge.
My current weight is 236.6.
I would love to be able to lose at least another 15 pounds by the end of this challenge, as this is a 6 week challenge.  Technically it began yesterday, March 2 and it ends April 13th.  What a great birthday present that would be to myself, to be down to 220, so I need a loss of 16.6 pounds by the end of this challenge.  My birthday is the 14th.  So, if I make this goal, any ideas what I should give myself for my birthday?

Of course another goal is to get myself out of the "obese" category.  That will not happen this challenge, but I will be ever so much closer to that goal.
