50/50 Team

Several of us  that are members of MQResource have been discussing getting healthier and  more physically fit.

This is not a new idea to me.  I toy with it often. And it just needs to change from idea to reality.  I think what really made me make that mental turn was opening my Christmas present from Steve.  He NEVER buys me clothes.  Absolutely refuses.  And for Christmas he bought me a beautiful Alpaca sweater.  It is size triple fat.  really.  who knew they made Alpaca sweaters in big girl sizes?    Sadly, it fit.  Sadly, it wasnt too big.  I want it to be too big.  I want it to be huge.  I want it to be so huge that I have to dump it in the hot washer and hotter dryer to felt it and shrink it up to MY size.   sigh…..

so the quest begins.

actually, it began on Christmas.

So, with my friends on MQR, we formed a 50/50 team.  50 lbs off in 50 weeks.  Thats a pound per week.  A measurable and attainable goal.  I am gonna have a felted Alpaca sweater for Christmas 2009!

If you are interested in joining us, make sure you check in at MQR.  Membership is free, although donating is a nice thing to do, and paid memberships get some bonus features.  And if you dont want to join MQR, but seriously want to do the 50/50 challenge, send me an email or comment here.

Now that I shared this here, I really am going to have to be accountable.  What matters most tho is my accountability to self.
