We ended with 16 linkies! THANKS, LADIES!

After 14 weeks, we ended with 16 finale updates. 16 out of 18 after 4 months. Darn good, people!

We only missed links by Bethany and Eaba. Bluezy came back for the last link. Thanks.

My buddy did great...Onederland is now her domain!

Let's continue to create healthful changes in our lives. I pray we all make goal weight in 2012 or 2013 (for the larger ladies)...and live better lives for it.

God bless...and take care...and be well...

FINAL LINKY IS UP! How did we do? :D

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Thank You! 17 Challenge Updates (One Missed Linky), so We've Still Only Lost 1 Person entering the Final Week! Bluezy, even in Idaho, come back for the finale!

One of the main rules I always make for the challenges I've led/co-led is NO QUITTING ALLOWED, no matter how hard you struggle.

Out of 18 initial challengers, we had one drop (medical, other issues). That's pretty astounding for a 14 week run. I think you've all seen challenges where even half or more of the challengers just fade away.... or where the challenge itself just sort of dribbles away.

I'm very thankful you all took it seriously and STUCK IT OUT. I'm hoping you will be happy with your final result--what you learned from your books, what you learned about your bodies and minds and spirits, how your outfits fit, how you exercised.

Less than a week to the end. YOU WILL NEED TO POST PICS of your outfit if you can try it on (even if it doesn't fit properly). Give as helpful a recap as you can for YOURSELF (your own journaling resource) and for OTHERS, who need help on their journey. What worked best. What didn't work. What you plan to keep doing. Your epiphanies, if any.

Now, remember to do your midweek update by end of Thursday. Keep in touch with your buddies.

And please, let's see 18 links in the finale. Everyone back in for the last bow in this leg of the journey. Ya hear me, BLUEZY!!!!

I plan to put up the linky earlier than usual, so that those folks traveling for Easter or busy for Passover or any other reason can do their final link-up before the weekend. DO NOT MISS THIS FINAL LINKY!

MidWeek Update Reminder: And We Should Have 17 Still In The Game (only 1 drop, yay!)

This ends April 8. March is nearly done. Less than 2 weeks time. A good finish? We can try!

Please do your midweek update before end of Thursday.

Remember the lv2 doesn't have a buddy and is struggling, and do go support her. She has the darn captcha, but work though it. PLEASE VISIT our buddyless challenger.

As to the last weekly update, we had 16, and Julie had advised us she'd miss the linky, so 17 in all out of 18 are still hanging in there. Bluezy, if you want to be back in for the last 1 1/2, come back, do the updates starting today or tomorrow, and get on board. Let's finish strong.

For those of you also in the Ready for Summer, I'll see you there in those updates. I'm burned out of hosting challenges, and just wanna be a participant for the next one. :D I like accountability, though, so this is a good thing for me.

Happy midweek!

Linky for the 12th Update due by end of Sunday, March 25, Eastern Time: DO NOT MISS THE DEADLINE!...and a suggestion for lv2 & Jillian...

We should have 16 updates. Let's not miss the cut-off, please. And lv2 and Jillian, can you guys see if you wanna hook up as buddies for the remaining weeks? It might help to pair up. Consider it, k?

Mid-Week Update Reminder and Inventory of Who Is Still In...

Okay, only 13 link-ups last Sunday.

Not in the challenge: Bluezy and Megan seem to be out of it for personal reasons. :(

Was late, but left a comment: Bethany

Didn't check in: Eaba, Jillian.
Jillian is on vacation, and that may be the issue there. Eaba, check in, please.
Buddies, what is up here?

I need to know clearly if you're still in or not. Thanks.

Okay, on we go. Mid-week update #12 is due by end of Thursday.

Be well and fight the fat!
