Courtney's Summer Challenge: Week 1

Kick-off your summer with Courtney and some necessary "me" time.

Welcome to the kick-off week of Courtney's Summer Challenge! Your challenge this week: "Take some time for yourself and just move."

Courtney wants to see you take a walk each day this week, and she reminds that a week has seven days in it! She doesn't care how long or how far, just that you do it. She also reminds that this "me" time is so important, and that you can't take care of others unless you're taking care of yourself first.

Week 1 Prize: DIR T-Shirt and Free Wholly Guacamole (Winner: ALYSSA)

Participate in the challenge by posting below. It could be your progress, success, hurdles, or even encouragement for other participants. We'll draw one winner to receive a shirt and some tasty guac, announced week 2.

I LOVE this challenge, a great place to start. I had my son last August, and began my weight loss journey back in January. Since then, I have lost about 30 lbs, but have begun to plateau. Even before I got pregnant, I was a little overweight, and I feel like I am finally ready to get back on track and hit my goal weight (about 45 lbs away)! I signed up for the biggest loser club this past Sunday, and so far, have lost about a pound. I think adding in this walking will greatly help me get back on track with exercise! Thanks for being such a great inspiration!

I went to the doctors today and found out that I'm no longer borderline diabetic!!! Losing these 30 pounds is the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm still so far from being done. I'm only 21 and can't wait to live my life the way I've been dreaming about! :) For all of you out there who don't believe in yourself, wake up, and just do it! <3

I have already lost 20 lbs using the wii Biggest loser challenge game and I need only 10 more to go. I have been in limbo with my weight for a while now. I think this challenge is what I need to go forward. Thank you Courtney!

What a great challenge! With all of the rain and storms in our area lately, I have totally become lazy & blah! So, I better get off of here and get a walk in before our next storm hits! Thanks Courtney!

You (and everyone on BL) have been a big inspiration to me. I restarted training for a marathon yesterday after my mom died recently. She always liked to hear about my progress with weight loss and my race results. I've already dropped 40 lbs and have another 35 to go. I'm getting in shape for my family and my mother.

Awesome day to start the summer challenge. I found out I have Celiac Diesease today and need to start a lifestyle change for my diet. This challenge will help me keep accountable to myself and others :)
