    Non-Scale Victory: I really want to be able to fit into the jacket that I’m wearing in one of my favorite pictures. I love that jacket! It’s a size L, I was so thrilled when I was able to buy the jacket and I’ll be even more thrilled when I can wear it again.

    Nutrition: Stay within the 1480 calories and track what I eat, even if I go over my allotted calories. Not tracking is not the same as not having consumed!

    Exercise: I’m training for my third half marathon. The run will take place in May and I’d like to be able to run the majority of the 13.1 miles. I also want to build muscle, so I’m adding strength training to my routine.

    My NSV for this challenge is to fit back into all of my old clothes, and to get ready to start the Couch-5k program. I have a huge detailed exercise plan on my blog, and I eat between 1200 and 1600 calories a day.

    My starting weight today is 220, and my goal for the end of this challenge is to be down to 198 pounds. However, my ultimate goal by October is to be down to 135. :)

  18. Hi Everyone - looking forward to this.
    My name is Sandra, and my blog post is linked above. But here it is again: http://fitnhealthybyfifty.blogspot.com/2011/12/spring-challenge-2012.html
    I just turned 50 this year and my 2011 goal was to get hot and fit by 50, but instead I got fat and frumpy :) I weighed in at 218.5 which is the highest I have been in 5 years - but I have been higher. I'm very good at the yo-yo dieting. I'm from Black Diamond, Alberta, Canada.

    Spring Chick Challenge 2012 was Created by Stormy@BigButtTheory. I truly appreciate her for allowing me to participate in this challenge. She is truly my inspiration. I'm looking forward to starting this challenge.

    As of today my weight is 275lbs. I want to eventually get down to 150/165. This will be my most challenging time with trying to lose weight. My schedule with work and school is very busy, but i'm gonna try to make time to work everything in.

    I've tried several diets and weight loss programs. Some with great success but I just didn't stick to them and others that once I stopped with the meal plans the pounds piled back on. I think my biggest mistake is I always did all my diets solo with little or no support. Of course I had the support of my husband but it still not the same as having the support of others who are also trying to lose weight or who have achieved great success in losing weight.

    Here is my intro to the Spring Chick Challenge 2012 that starts on Monday January 2, 2012 and ending on March 19, 2012. I pledge to the best of my ability that:

    1. I will Commit to NSV(non scale victory)- which will be to fit into a pair of my used to be favorite jeans.

    2. I will Commit to a set nutrition parameters that I will track via MyFitnessPal
    Daily Calories: 1520
    Daily Water Intake: 8 plus cups of water
    Items to limit: Sugar and salt

    3. I will Commit to a set of exercise parameters filled with variety:
    Wii-fit, Wii Biggest Loser
    Walking DVD etc......
    4. I will commit to blogging at least twice weekly with one specified strictly to updates.

    5. I will commit to giving and receiving support the best I can.

    Thank you in advance for all your help and support!!!!
