776px-mypyramid1I’m having a hard time right now losing the last 15 pounds to by goal. To be honest, I’ve lost this 15 pounds before. But I’ve always gained it back. But I’m dogged in my determination to lose this last 15 pounds. I just need a little extra help, it seems. Lucky for me, Baker at Man Vs. Debt is providing just the thing: The PF Bloggers Weight Loss Challenge.

Losing weight together

30 personal finance bloggers signed up, and we were divided into teams. Just so you know, I am on team Beta. Our Twitter hashtag is #BWLCBETA. Since I like to win, and I dislike letting people on my team down, this is just the thing to help me get into shape. It’s all about accountability (it works in personal finances as well). My fellow Beta team members are:

Mrs. Micah, though she isn’t on my team, made a great point about strength training. I don’t want just losing weight to be my only focus; I also want to increase my bone density and strengthen my body in general. It isn’t just about getting skinny — it’s about being healthier.

Besides, having good health can also lead to increased wealth. Money Energy points out that studies have been done linking good health and weight loss to increased financial stability. M.E. points out that there are confidence factors involved, as well as energy and motivation that can come when you boost your energy level through weight loss, exercise and health living. I would also like to add that when you are healthier, you have a better chance of spending loss on health care. Unhealthy lifestyles are expensive.

Anyway, I am looking forward to this challenge — and to getting back into shape.

Do you have any health goals?

    You’re a worthy opponent. :) Good health is one of those things that keeps itself going–once you’ve gotten into habits it’s easier to stick with them and your body gets more used to them. Plus you’ve got more energy to exercise with.

    I agree about strength training’s importance. Actually I find that that is the biggest benefit I get from working out regularly at the gym – for some reason, the gym alone (cardio and weights) doesn’t help me lose weight, but I feel better and can handle stress better, and it helps you have a generally more positive attitude. For me, weight loss is completely related to nutrition and diet.

    I’m ready to get this done Miranda!

    Like I tweeted earlier, I’ve already lost 30 pounds. The main thing that helped was the realization that you don’t “go on a diet”, you “change your diet”, there’s a HUGE difference.

    Also, while I did lose a lot of weight already, I hadn’t been exercising. That has changed…I’m now riding my bike 20 miles a day back & forth to work. It is not only good exercise, but it is a stress buster & a great start to my day!

    I’ll do my best to motivate & help keep you on track! GO BETA!

    Thanks!

    It’s those first few days and getting started that always get me. And you’re right: It’s all about developing good habits to replace the bad.
