Challenge: Walk with few friends.

Today is Jan 18 and approximately 4 weeks are left until valentines day. Let’s make this our short goal to lose up to 1 - 2 pounds per week. Let’s plan out each week until valentines day!

We all plan for some short goals but somehow fall-off the wagon now and then. Daily check-ins by posting your progress or plan will help prevent this fall-off. Let’s make pointlessfood our community for sharing and support. If this short goal challenge is a success, then we will have more to keep us going.
Following are few easy rules for this challenge for full support:
  1. Post your daily meals and exercise plans or ideas. 
    • This will keep us motivated and will have continuos support. 
    • This will also give others opportunity to tell you if you are on right track or if some modifications are required in your plan.
  2. Track your lost pounds.

Following are somethings to keep in mind to make this a success:
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • Reduce carbohydrates , like white pasta, rice, potatoes, and sweets.
  • Plan for more active schedule. At least 4 - 5 times a week. Example: High impact exercise in the morning at 9 with additional 30 minutes walk in the evening.
