RagamuffinTop Challenge // 9


OK. Here it is. Time to bring it not sing it.
Simple to join.
1. You must have a measurable goal.
2. You must place a photo or video on your blog each weekend and give us the scoop on how you did.
3. You must link back here so that the readers of your blog get to see how the rest of us are failing or succeeding.
4. You fill out the linky thing below and then people can get to your blog from my front page and we can cheer each other on.
Got it?

  • good job! woo hoo! way to go for both of you. a friendly reminder to everyone trying to lose some weight….the way i understand it, in order to lose a pound, yo need to burn 3000-3500 more calories than you consume. (and fasting usually doesn’t work) cut back on your calories, increase you activity and you’ll see gradual weight loss happen.

  • you’re amazing me!

  • Matt G

  • I’m still here! It may have seemed as though I fell off the wagon, but I’m hangin’ on 🙂 The weight is not really leaving me so much (I think it must be a combo of that dang metabolism shift happening, and I’m gaining some muscle? Let’s go with that). However, I am so proud of my new running habit that I have formed! I think I’m tweaking my goals to continue with that. Still hope to continue to lose the weight, but I am so excited to finally be one of THOSE people (that enjoy running!) that I want to take that and run with it (pun intended…haha).

    How is everyone else doing this week?
