Gearing up for the New Year and new challenges!!

Happy New Year!!! 2011 is looking to be a great year--graduation, hopefully a new house (fingers crossed I get a job), a trip out west (the cabin and meals are being paid for by my in-laws!), and who knows what else. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked! However, I do have a few challenges ahead of me. The one I'm most excited about is our weight loss challenge. My mother in law and I have decided that all of us going on the trip need to lose weight (we want to hike some pretty nice trails in the Rocky Mountains). She threw down the challenge of a couple's weight loss. Whatever couple loses the most combined weight-wins. I'm not sure what we're "playing" for yet--but my competitive juices are in high gear (I can be a little competitive--I was in band and played softball in high school--and I HATE losing). Now to motivate the hubby... Any suggestions? ;)

  1. fun challenge! i would use whatever motivates {only a wife would know!} the dear hubs.. to make him as competitive as you! ;) best tip for weight loss i can give you... eat like a diabetic! it's a well rounded diet, that is easy to stick to once the weight is off. :) {recently diagnosed in May of 2010, and have lost 47 lbs.. just with diabetic diet & walking}
    good luck with the competition!!
