"Motivate Mondays are a great idea! I have had high and low days. I have put on the pounds over the years and it's sooooo very humiliating! I used to be athletic, competitive, I even ran on the ambulance for 5 years with lots of mountain runs! I was even bigger than I'd like but I was energetic at that time and I still could move! Life has thrown our family lots of curve balls. As life throws many trials to many families! I think stress and taking care of everyone else.....somewhere I LOST ME! Thank you friends and Challenge because even though it's tough to work out everyday etc....In four weeks I am down 10 pounds and even though some measurements didn't change at all and some a little, I lost 2.3 inches off my hips! WOO HOOOOO!! This IS TOTAL MOTIVATION! I hope you all keep going even when the stress is there and you're so tired! Good Luck To all of us!!!!"
