2020 Fall 5% Challenge - Wanting More in Life
Sunday, September 13, 2020
I weigh 271 lbs today. It isn't my highest, but it isn't an achievement. I hit 286 lbs before I contracted COVID back in March. I also did intermittent fasting out of necessity during the past few months, because I'm unemployed and getting unemployment was a nightmare. And what I received from the food pantries didn't always cover a full week.
But I'm here, and I'm not quite back to normal (I'm still unemployed and making due with food pantry items). But the 5% Fall challenge is about to start, and I know that this is the push I need to get closer to my goal. 5% of where I am now is 13.55 lbs. That would put me in the 250s. I can live with that. I'm determined. I'm hopeful. I want to have more of what life offers.
So, if you want to be challenged this fall, after such a rough summer, join me and others in the challenge.
