Health Challenge Fever

As I sit at my computer typing in emails, adding people to the Facebook group, replying to emails and messages, sending out info, I sit here and enjoy a new episode on The Biggest Loser.


I see people working hard, crying, screaming and throwing up.  I would love to go through a process as intense as this, just to challenge me.  But, I am pretty satisfied with our little Health Challenge Group. 

I love the support and encouragement of people.  I love the ease of following the guidelines at a pace I can manage.  I love reading about the success of others.  I love that also have the potential to win a little money to help me with my new wardrobe. I simply love everything about it.

So, here I am, thankful for being introduced to my first Challenge last spring.  Here I am after taking the past 4 months off from competing, ready to challenge myself again.   Here I am so ready to hit some of my last goals. 

This last goal was so much closer to reach at the end of the last challenge I participated in.  After a Christmas season in which I lacked  a lot of self control, this goal has slipped farther from my grasp than I had hoped:(  But, back to it I go!

I will not be competing in the January Health Challenge.  Lucky for all. But I will be competing in the Dawson Creek Challenge.  This is run by a friend of mine that competed in it with her husband in the fall.  They were so successful as a couple that they inspired so many people that it made sense to run a Dawson Creek Group.  They reached over 3o participants in the first round and are still growing.

After their last challenge, some of their members from Calgary started their own, because they also were so successful.  This new Calgary group is also reaching over 30 members in their first round. 

There is a Health Challenge Fever going on!  And it is fantastic!
