YouthfulTips Step Up to Slim Down Virtual Challenge It's On

Latest Update:

If you plan to participate in the New Year's Challenge, please send me an e-mail or comment below that you are ready to begin November 1st.

There is still time if you want to join as long as you realize you will have less time to lose but join if nothing else for the motivation!

Need help and encouragement to finally get into shape?

Tired of being tired and not feeling great?

Are you ready for a new you?

Why wait until January 1st for yet another failed New Year's resolution?

How about breaking tradition and why not GET IN SHAPE BEFORE January 1st and start the year off great?

If you are like me, you always cringe with the holidays or in my case, all the Army balls coming.  You use food for comfort and then immediately it becomes your enemy.  Whether you are a military spouse coping with a deployment as I just did or if you are just a fellow struggler, let's get motivated!  It's a sordid affair with food but join me and others as we step up to a challenge beginning November 1st to be in shape or at least healthier by January 1st!

Look for great sponsor gifts and rewards in the Step Up to Slim Down Virtual Challenge.
