Also I am involved in 3 dietbets that end the same day as this challenge. I need to loose 8 lbs in order to win all the bets by June 28th.

I am currently contemplating attending a Turbo Kick Instructor certification (Any suggestions please let me know or personal stories)

I’ve been thinking how some people may not understand that a lifestyle change or weight-loss journey is a 24 hour thing not a just for 1 meal. But if you are just beginning take it slow because if you place to many restriction on your self you may become discouraged and give up. Also you have to be READY to make a change because motivation will come in spurts and you have to be READY to stick to what you decided with or without motivation.

Society speaks a lot about motivation which we all need but what about self-efficacy which is the amount of which you believe you can achieve and or complete a task. What about self monitoring your own situation and seeking more help if need be.

Remember the only person you are trying to top IS YOURSELF
