While tweeting Thursday night, my friend Fadra (@AllThingsFadra) asked “Let’s see how happy you are with the way you are. Fill in the blank. I would like to lose _____ pounds. GO!” And this tweet started a bunch of ladies that are going to the Type A Parent conference in June to start talking about losing 15 lbs by June 23rd, the first day of Type A.
Are you going to Type A Parent Conference? I will be there with baby Lucy, she will be 6 months at the conference. I’d love to meet ya! If you are going and want to join us, just grab the button and write up your intro post and link up below! Even if you don’t want to lose 15 lbs – maybe you just want to shed 5-10 lbs to fit better in a particular pair of jeans or you want to improve your workout regimen – improving your lifestyle is more fun with friends, so join us! (before pics are totally optional)
Ideas for your intro: Who you are, what your goals are, why you have those goals, how you will reach them!
And friends, as you are tweeting throughout the day, use the hashtag #15byTypeA to encourage each other and even vent your frustrations. My most common one will probably be increasing my water intake. I just can’t figure out how to drink more, but I am going to try!
I’m gonna type up my intro post – please do yours, grab the button and let’s get healthier before Type A!
My Intro Post
I’m Annie. I gave birth to baby Lucy on December 14th of last year. She is the youngest of three kids, and my oldest is going to be 4 years old in June. I was almost down to my goal weight last year when I discovered I was pregnant. I am currently working really hard to lose all my excess and unhealthy body fat. According to BMI charts, my healthy weight range at 5’4 is 120-135. I am currently 149 lbs, so I don’t have very far to go!
I have already joined weight watchers online, I just need to track my points better. I hope that joining this group of ladies will encourage me and give me the kick in the pants I need to count my points better and stay more active. Calories in, calories out!
I am going to post a new challenge every Thursday. Let’s check in here once a week to see how we are all doing. On every #15byTypeA post I will put a new challenge for you to do in real life. This week, introduce yourself and start drinking more water! Come back in a week and let me know if you succeeded in drinking at least 8 cups, or 64 ounces of water every day!
I can’t wait to see you all in June and rejoice together in our mutual accomplishments! We can do this!
What if I am not going to Type A Con?
You can still join! I have a button for you too. In your intro post this week, put what goal you are trying to make and how you are going to reach it. And don’t forget to drink that water this week – I’ll be asking about it next week!
