LHA Challenge.... GO!

So There you have it ladies, (the date and time is wrong but who cares!) This morning I was at 145.5! Yes I am happy to be at this point! starting my weight loss challenge with exactly 20lbs to lose!!!!! Can we do it? Yes we can!!!!!

Today is an exciting day, especially after last night! I am in such a phenomenal mood!

I can't even explain how pumped I am for this challenge and the challenge I have ahead of me to make my goals come true for this month! 

Along with LHA I will be doing another personal challenge. I am going to eliminate negative comments and neg thoughts from my life! I think everyone knows how often I say "uh" and how I am been on a mission to use that word less well, I was listening to a training call the other day and a Pasteur had come up with an idea of forming good positive thinking and eliminating the negative thoughts!  Essentially the idea is simple. This is a 3 week challenge to not say one negative thing! This can take up to several months to accomplish though. So wearing a bracelet that will stand as a reminder that you are not going to say anything negative. If something negative is said (or though, because a though constitutes a negative action), you are to switch the bracelet to the other wrist. Keeping the bracelet on one wrist for three weeks (21 days forms a new habit), will mean that you have accomplished the challenge!!!! Now I am starting today and I know usually I am a positive person but I want my whole world around me to stink of positive notions and attitudes!!! 

So I am starting a-new! I am in such a great mood today and nothing can get me down! LETS GO LHA!!!!

I also want to say thank you to Christine and her sister for doing LHA.


  1. I love your idea about the negative thoughts and the bracelet. Sounds like a wonderful personal challenge on top of the LHA. You are going to do awesome and I'm excited to participate in this challenge with you!
    :) :) :)

  2. Woohoo!! I love your enthusiasm (I'm really excited too!). Can't wait to follow along and hear of your successes. Let's go! :)

  3. I like the negative thoughts bracelet-thing! It's such a sweet challenge to do! If only I were a bit more of a positive person I'd do it as well, but I'd seriously have to swap the bracelet about constantly. That's the price you have to pay for being a glass-half-empty type of person! :D

    Wishing you luck on LHAS! That's a great weight to start from (my eventual end goal) so I hope you do really well!


  4. I LOVE that bracelet idea! I'm just as excited as you are about this challenge! Yahoo! G'Luck!

  6. Yay, that's a good start weight too! You've got a head start! Keep it going!

  7. Chupsie!! Another challenge together! :)

    Here is to a wonderfully productive summer. I wish you the very best with your goals & hope you are thrilled with your stats in August.

    Have a wonderful week,

    PS - I don't know if it shows the same on everyone's screen (I have a wide screen on my laptop) but your text is spreading waay beyond the middle white section & I have to highlight it to read it. Just thought I'd let you know in case others are having trouble reading your blog).

  8. I love your positive attitude! I'm confident that 20 lbs will be easy peasy for you with that attitude! The bracelet is a very good idea!

  9. bring on the enthusiasm! I love that you are doing the no negativity challenge too.
    I'm looking forward to following your journey.

  10. I love that we both had a bracelet idea, lol. Your is great, I need to fight negativity in my inner dialogue too. Thanks for all your support girl! XOXOXOXOXO.
