Good Morning Team 20-4-20! Happy Saturday!

Wow.  I’m overwhelmed at the comments, emails and tweets.  I’m working a table at a career fair today and I’m thrilled that I made the decision to invest in an airport card so I can get online today and write to you all.  I will answer everyone’s questions one at a time, as soon as I can.  My DH pointed out last night that if all of us lose 20 pounds, that is a total of 400 pounds!  

I’ve been on Jenny Craig and lost (then gained it back), as well as weight watchers (and gained it back)…I’ve hired personal trainers, I’ve done Sugar Busters, low fat, no fat, low carb, high protein, blah, blah, blah.  Let’s face it.  After a certain age, and after having a baby or two, this definitely has to be a lifestyle change.  We can only do this a day at a time, and one healthy decision/choice at a time.  

Today, even though I’m away from home, I loaded up my thermal lunch bag with v-8 juice, an apple, a chunk of skinny cow cheese, a tuna cup, a trail-mix bar.  They have provided a huge spread of food at the event I’m at right now — of course donuts for breakfast…but I’m not even tempted because I have you all to write to and talk about the choices I’m making today.  The details for this weight loss TEAM effort will be given to you soon.  At this first stage, I’m just gathering up the TEAM — we still have room for a few more women so feel free to tweet about this and spread the word!

  1. ‘Mornin’ Girlfriends!

    Started my day with a 5.4 mile walk with Allison, Colleen and Nancy. Have a dinner party here tonight so will try to fill up on salad and skip the bread. And maybe just taste my husband’s dessert. And, I’m planning my big weigh in on Monday morning. Haven’t been on the scale in a few months so I’m scared!

    Thanks for starting this group. As, you know, I believe in the power of girlfriends and think this is a FAB way of getting fit and finding fun friends!

    Thanks Carole for inspiring & challenging us! Hugs, Debba

  2. Good evening! 🙂 Thanks for making this site and forming this support group!

    20 pounds is part of my ultimate goal to lose half of my body weight – but I know that the first 20 pounds is probably the hardest to lose. I lost 8 pounds and gained it all back.

    My plan includes making healthier choices, including eating breakfast and drinking more water.

    Thanks again,


  3. Great idea! I can’t wait to see how your team progresses!

      hi Teresa! Thanks for saying so. I’m very excited and I am just as enthusiastic about seeing everyone else lose their weight as I am about my own poundage! Will you please hang out with us, give us tips, encourage us? Also if you are not on twitter yet, I think you would love it. It’s a form of micro-blogging and GREAT community. If you do sign up for twitter, you can hang out with us by following @muffintopless and if you need help with twitter, just ask. I am amazed with your weight loss and fitness progress!! Seeing you have the guts to post your “before” pics has encouraged me to be honest and show my pics (as you can see by the most recent video where I am definitely showing my “muffin top”. Accck!!
