GO TEAM BLUE!!!
It's time for another good challenge - hopefully the FINAL weight "loss" challenge I'm a participant of. I say final weight "loss" challenge because I'm hoping to reach goal by the end of this (or at least be pretty close to it). I'm on the 2nd half of my journey which isn't to be confused with a downhill slope, the final stretch feels more like a climb than the first.
As of Sunday, I began the City of Mission's "Biggest Weight Loss Challenge" with 156 participants broken into 6 teams. The goal is for the entire group to lose 2011 lbs by 2011. I am on team BLUE with my Dad, three great friends (including my best friend) and strangers who I hope to befriend in the upcoming months. Did you catch that, MONTHS! This will be a 7 1/2 month challenge. SAM will be our faithful trainer and we are on a mission to get healthy. He's an athletic trainer for Johnson County Community College and volunteering as OUR trainer on the side. I'm very thankful for his willingness to help us reach our goals.
Life is in the journey, not the destination, so do what you can and take it one day at a time. Go slow, do it right, and make your changes permanent — then help out others who are where you were.
