I haven't said much but I started a weight loss program on July 24, 2007. I've lost 27 pounds since starting. I've also lost 23 inches from my body. The weight loss program I joined is SparkPeople on the internet. There's lots of encouragement and motivation throughout the site. I belong to several teams on the site. There are scrapbooking, cross-stitch, crafts in general and health related sites. I just love it and it's been so encouraging and motivating for me. I've made several friends through the group. What's really nice is the site is free to everyone. They have Nutrition, Fitness and Goal Trackers. Goals are a very important part of the program. I'm not a person who likes to make lists........but I find myself enjoying the daily, weekly and monthly goals that I make for myself. It's a good feeling when you can cross off a goal.

The Clothing Challenge is one of the challenges I am taking. You were to find a article of clothing that didn't quite fit or wasn't comfortable and work toward it's fitting better. I chose a pair of black jeans that I had bought at a yard sale for $1. In fact I have several more pairs of pants that I bought that day that are just a little snug for comfort. Anyway they are starting to fit better. I'll update next week on them.
