Completed Mini-Challenges

Week 1

Write Down Goal Weight

Guidelines:
If you are in weight loss mode, this challenge is to loose 5% in 4 weeks. Find out how much a 5% loss would be, write that weight and "Aug 5th" (last day of challenge) on a post-it note and put that near your scale or somewhere that you will see it often. If you are trying to maintain do the same but just put your starting weight.
