Shrinkvivor Challenge - Starting Weigh-In

Shrinkvivor Challenge at the Sisterhood!

Those fabulous ladies (and gent) at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans are at it again.  Today marks the start of our newest weight loss challenge: Shrinkvivor!  I am blessed to be a member of Tribe Navy Seals!
Here's the rest of my tribe:
Alicia M.
Dolly D.
Gerrie S., @shaeffermom
Jacquie G.
Jennifer M.
Kelly W., @pigtailmomma

Jennifer suggested the name Navy Seals because they are some of the toughest, smartest, baddies on the planet.  A few of their mottos:  "The only easy day was yesterday", "Lead, follow, and never quit", "Accelerate your life".  Yeah, I'm feeling it!

So now onto the numbers:
Weight on June 23, 2009: 165.8
Challenge Starting Weight: 141.6
Change This Week: N/A
Change for Shrinkvivor Challenge: N/A
Total Pounds Gone: 24.2

As you can see, I have a 25 pound button sitting over there on the left side of this blog.  I seem to keep hovering right around that 140-ish mark.  I managed to get into the 130's by my 40th birthday last month, but then a trip to Disney popped me back up.  So, for the next 7 weeks, I'd like to work on these goals:
  • Drink tons of water
  • Log my food and exercise at Daily Plate (a very cool iphone app-go get it if you don't have it already)
  • Continue training for my 1/2 Marathon (which is now just over 1 month away)
  • Up the strength training once the 1/2 is over
  • Get to 138 pounds
In my best Jeff Probst:  "Shrinkvivors ready....GO!!!!"
