Half-way through June – weightloss challenge update


Well, I’m not sure how it happened so fast, but we are half-way through June. It’s been a busy month of graduations, weddings and birthdays.  .  . and Happy Father’s Day tomorrow! All these celebrations can be hard on a diet-plan, so us challengers need to stick together & support each other!   I’ve been fighting the fight although it’s been quite a bit more of a challenge this month. My own personal theory is that the lower your BMI the slower the pounds are shed.  Whatever I need to tell myself huh. 😛  Well, lest you think I’ve been a total slacker, here are some pictures to prove I’m still in the game. 😀

starting of may- mid may - today (mid june)

I won’t give up my percentage lost this month yet, but I’ll say it’s going about half as fast as it did last month. Slow & Steady Wins The Race! Okay, honestly, I don’t have too many aspirations of winning the June Challenge. But at least I can say, I’m in the game! And here’s a great habit to get into – since we all could use the extra ‘vitamins & minerals’ as my 5 year old would say. If you’re hosting a celebration this month, support your local weight loss challengers by adding fresh fruits & vegetables to the menu!



About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
