Shrinkvivor Challenge - Day 1

Kick ass.  Time to start the Shrinkvivor challenge that was created by the fab team over at The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans.  You can follow the progress of the Tribes here.

I had my first weigh-in this morning and the challenge will continue through November 3rd.  That gives me 7  weigh-ins to find myself DEEP into onederland (never to look back at this weight I'm currently at!).  Yee haw, here goes.  I'm definitely going to hit my 10% loss milestone and hopefully even my 25 lbs milestone!  If I push really hard, I might even make it halfway to goal. 

I'm excited to see the fitness challenges posed to us by the Shrinkvivor peeps.  I need to shake things up a bit in terms of exercise and motivation.

My plan is to keep following WeightWatchers for tracking food.  I'm also going to up my exercise by and I'm contemplating signing up for a 5K on Thanksgiving.  I am going to give myself a week to decide.  I like having a goal around the holidays that's positive and not focused around family stress or food!
Goal One  - Be the Ultimate Shrinkvivor!  There's some fantastic prizes to sweeten the pot.
Goal Two - Have a blast trying.


  1. I love your goals and can't wait to see if you become the ultimate shrinkvivor. I'm just along for the ride, I know it won't be me but I'm with you on goal two.

  2. Love your goals!!! Rock on Sister!

  3. Great goals girl! We are going to have so much fun doing this! And I know you can be the Ultimate Shrinkvivor!!! So glad to have you on my tribe :)

  4. 25 pounds down would be so awesome! Try not to focus on the number too much though. I know it counts, but if you focus on the goals instead the numbers will drop naturally!

    Great post!

  5. Awesome goals!

    DO THE 5K!!!!!

  6. I figured I have to set my goals high, right!? :)
    Lissa - I think I'm going to register this weekend. That way I know I'm committed!

  7. Great goals!!!!
