ok, so I’m not very good at challenge follow through (better late than never?) I am eager to hear how everyone did, or is doing! I came home from Seattle to LOTS of email, but this was one of favorites:
I’m a big fan of yours! Took your challenge a few weeks ago and just wanted to report that I’ve lost nearly 15 pounds! Yeah, me! From one adoptive mom to another…thanks!
Marsha in Abilene, TX
Hello! Suffice it to say I am a BIG fan of Marsha – seriously, girlfriend, way to GO!
I personally did really well up until Memorial Day and then I have not been so good since. I am back on track now (although I’m only doing the no sugar thing for a week because my kids are home and I like making treats!!)
Amy, our adorable education editor at BPS (now posting on our company blog ) sent me this photo — like a livestrong band, only for your finger!
you can get one by registering yourself and your health goals at eatbetteramerica.com — I’m signed up and am really impressed with this site — good, sound information and motivation. You can even send them a favorite recipe and they’ll "healthify" it for you.
I’ve been harboring some guilt for not posting the last few "challenge taker" photos, so let’s pick on these girls (Julie, Leauriy, Marjorie, Sherri, Sian and Jennifer) now and see if they will be the first to comment and respond to my informal questions:
How did you do?
What worked, what didn’t?
What did you learn? and finally, is there any one item on the list that you have truly incorporated into your daily routine?! Comment and share and I’ll send you some healthy happy mail!
for the record YOU are all beautiful — if you haven’t take a minute to view the challenge photo album (on the right of my blog entry) you really should!
ok, I stayed up too late last night, so I’m hittin the sack so I can get up early and go for my run.
