Unearth your inner Winner!

I started the Spring Challenge over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans.
The Challenge is 8 weeks, Unearthing your inner winner. I am on Team "Q" with team-mates I have never met, but am excited to meet and get to know.
The Challenge is to do the 30 day Shred work-out dvd with Jillian Michael's from the Biggest Loser and of course eat a healthy diet. Wednesday we will weigh- in and report our loss. This is a big challenge for me because I am already working out 3 to 4 times a week at Curves and I have a bad foot. I plan on finding some good support workout shoes and suck it up. This challenge will be very helpful to me as I approach the March for Babies I am walking in on April 24th. This challenge came at at time in my life where I was feeling like a failure at winning the battle of the bulge. I guess maybe I can blame it on the weather. I had my exercise under control since joining Curves last October, but my eating was not under control.
Thanks to my very special BFF Nancy who has been encouraging me to join the challenge and I also visually saw how she has shrunk within months, gave me such a motivation like I haven't had in a long time. We are both grandma's and need to feel good and be able to bend without losing our breath. We have so much to shred for. And, also, thanks to Donya for also encouraging me and even helped me get on my team.
Now, let's get this party started...stay tuned every Wednesday for Shredding results....And if you would like to get on board with us, go check it out....there's probably room on my team!
