1) There are no rules
There you are - not very complicated, so we'll all be just fine!
This challenge is for absolutely anyone who would like to hold themselves officially and (sort of) publicly accountable for losing a spot of weight...if at all possible...please and thank you...in a mutually supportive arena. On the basis that we all know ourselves best, each of you can totally choose all the parameters...when your challenge actually starts and how you are going to do it (5:2, 16:8, BSD, hybrid and so on)and even when you are finishing...in a sense.
I'm saying this because I need to start on Monday 12th!! Need to - because I have slipped a little on the food front this week & need to get back on that there hoss before the slippery slope beckons....though I'm not quite ready yet! I want this weekend to come to terms with it!! I need to stop on Friday 11th November....coz I'm off to Mauritius on the 12th....so mine will be a 9 week challenge - plenty of time to lose a fair bit, I would say!
I know these timings might not suit everyone - that's why I'm happy for you all to set your own. Here's a thought though - if you're going away in a few weeks, feel free to start now, stop in the middle and get back to it for the rest of the challenge....above all, make it work for you! Life often gets in the way - but it definitely shouldn't. We need to live while losing...enjoy the breaks when they come.....otherwise fatigue will set in. I hope I'm making sense....
So....who'd like to join me? Who'd like to be my Accountabuddies for this laid-back challenge? You'll be very welcome! Drop me a line...why don't you?!!
Ooh, I nearly forgot...if you don't want to set an actual target this time around - that's absolutely fine with me (see my statement below). Please just write me a little statement that sums up what you want to say...and I'll put it in the next post....because I've gone on a bit too much on this one!!
