healthyme73 - the new ATHENA teammate!
tleateal - the new ARETMIS teammate!

Congratulations ladies! Good luck and enjoy the coming weeks of the challenge!

AND, the winner of the Motivational Question Response issss.... ShannonKristine! Of Team Artemis!! Oooh la la lady - You've earned 5 points for your team! Here's Shannon's awesome response:

How have you found that setting mini-goals for yourself helps you succeed in your weight loss endeavors?

"When I started my weight loss journey, I had 122.2 pounds to lose. WOW, that is a whole person! ( A skinny person, but a person nonetheless) In past failed weight loss attempts I was always making the same mistake - I was going in to the situation thinking how the hell am I going to lose 122.2 pounds!? Most of the time I would end up giving up on my diet because 122.2 pounds! THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE! Or is it? Here I am one year later, with 87.4 pounds of that GONE! I have lost 33% of the person I was. How have I done this? By breaking my total goal into small POSSIBLE executable goals. You have to find what works best for you, in the beginning of my journey I started by breaking into 10 pound blocks of weight. Now I focus on each week. By setting mini goals, I have learned to look at what I can change in the NOW. Can I lose 122.2 pounds by next week? NO but I know I can lose a couple of pounds if I put in the work and stay focused, and before I know it I'm over 70% to my goal! My six year old daughter was keeping me company while I was on the elliptical today. She wanted to count to 1,000 but thought it was impossible. Then I explained to her that counting to 1,000 is easy! I said "Madison, can you count to 100? Because if you count to 100 just 10 times that will make 1,000." She was so excited, and then proceeded to count to 1,000 effortlessly by taking it 100 at a time. Breaking up your overall goal into mini-goals helps keep you motivated because you get to feel the success of reaching a goal and it pumps you up for the next one! Have you ever lifted a thousand pounds? Walked a hundred miles? WELL SURE YOU HAVE! Every step you take in your life is part of the bigger picture. You may not be able to do it all in a day, but every day adds up! Remember we can move mountains people! You may have to get your wheel barrow out and move that mountain one rock at a time, but we can move them nonetheless! Don't ever allow yourself to be limited by looking only at the overwhelming total picture. You can do this!"


Now, the Week 4 mini-challenge is up, so everyone go check it out!!

All the best,
CSL-Bailey
