My sister is so excited about it - she's pretty healthy, long-distance runner type, although has gained some weight recently. Anyway, so now I've got extra motivation!
That's great! My mum is doing the same thing with me (sort of). She's gonna pay me $100 for losing 50lbs. She even said she'd pay it in small goal form, like $20 for each 10 I lose. I know she feels I am overweight as well, so it's nice when your family tries to help with motivating you!
Good goals too! I need to really work on my water intake. I'm trying to drink more decaf tea. Good luck with your challenge!
