Hello and to this month’s WISH Challenge.
I’m Pamela (pjlla), and I’ll be your hostess for this FINAL challenge of 2016! One quick "legal" bit I'm required to state.... I am a WW employee. This challenge is unrelated to my job at WW and anything I say is purely my own comment and opinion!
This challenge officially starts on December 1, but if you find us later in the month, we’re still happy to have you join!
Our returning faces know the drill, but for those of you who are new to the WISH Challenge, here’s a short overview of what we’re all about:
WISH stands for “We’re Inspired to Stay Healthy,” and that’s what we’re all about – living a healthy lifestyle. Whether you’re trying to lose some weight, trying to maintain your current weight, or trying to introduce some new healthy habits into your life (or stick to healthy habits you’ve already introduced), we’re here to help and support you.
Your participation level is up to you! If you've got the time, feel free to answer each and every QOTD and participate in the chatter! Less time? Pop on when you can to ask questions, share NSVs, etc!
All you have to do is pick a goal for the month, and report in once a week to let us know how you’re doing. We’ll also have questions of the day, WooHoo Wednesdays, and weekly challenges … and we’re always here to chat, support you when you need some help, and celebrate with you when you’re doing awesome! We’ll have questions of the day to talk about, weekly challenges, and some other fun things going on … but all of that is optional. The only mandatory thing is committing to a healthy lifestyle, and letting us help you along the way!
Just a quick reminder about how things work with our monthly WISH challenges.
Your goal is UP TO YOU! Whether you pick a goal of miles walked, pounds lost, percentage lost or days tracked.... however you choose to measure your success, that is up to you. Just pick a goal, make a PLAN to reach that goal, share that information with us and then report your weekly progress (as a percentage) toward that goal.
12/1 (Starting numbers/goals)
12/9-11 (First reports due)
12/16-18 (Second reports due)
12/23-25 (Third reports due)
12/30-31 (FINAL REPORTS)
Results will be reported in percentages here but no specific numbers (pounds or miles or whatever) will be reported unless you choose to do so.
I will accept progress results every Friday-Sunday and PLAN to have the results updated by Monday evenings.
I hope that this format will encourage some great discussions about weight loss, maintaining, diet, exercise and healthy living! But as always, feel free to participate as much or as little as you would like.... but remember, the more you put in, the more you'll get out.
Welcome to returning friends, newbies, and anyone/everyone who would like to chat about weight loss, weight maintenance, exercise, and anything related! No rules here EXCEPT to be kind and supportive of each other! No negative energy allowed!
We talk about calories, Weight Watchers, low-carb, SparkPeople, MFP, Fitbits, Jawbones, marathon training, walking, recipes, vitamins, meal planning, smoothies, juicing, motivation, YOU NAME IT!! No positive/healthy talk is off limits!
Please consider inviting a friend (either a RL friend or a Disboard friend) to join us. They don't have to LOVE Disney like we do (but it helps). They only need to want to make healthier lifestyle choices!...............P
