Apple Blossom's Can -Do Program


Did everyone enjoy their holiday weekend?  Did you eat something special?  What was your favorite thing that you had for Thanksgiving?  My girlfriend and I made a new cake recipe called Blueberry Crumble.

We are now in a critical time of year for many people - the holiday party season.  From now until January 1st, there are food and drink temptations everywhere.  What to do??

I've already given you several ideas on eating strategies and if you want you can go back and take a look here.  But today I want you to go over and check out Liz's ideas over at Apple Blossom Dreams.  She has started her Can Do Program  which I think is full of practical ideas and advice.  And guess what else?  She's made some fine progress in the first week already!  Here's her first post about her plan.

Liz's plan has several great ideas and most importantly, she's set realistic goals for herself.  She understands that it's best to shoot for small weight loss increments each week and she set up an excel spreadsheet to help her track those goals.  She has even graciously offered to share the spreadsheet with anyone who wants to email her.  Thanks Liz.

What else is Liz doing?  She's....




Liz started her Can Do Program at 149.8 lbs.  After a week, and with Thanksgiving thrown in there to boot, she was down to 145.2.  Her plan is to get down to 120 lbs. by March 31, 2014.

Liz is a shining example of what can be accomplished by setting up clear goals.  She has a plan.  She's allowing for a greater weight loss the first week and a steady and realistic weight loss thereafter.  She's making good meal choices, getting some exercise and is drinking lots of water.  I'm really looking forward to hearing about what else she incorporates into her program.

Please take the time to click on all the links I've provided that will take you directly to her different blog posts about her program.  Take the time to say hi and leave a word of encouragement.

I'd like to thank Liz for letting me share her program with you today.  I'll be checking in and keeping an eye on her progress.  Way to go Liz!

  3. Hey Tony, good stuff good stuff. I've been weightlifting for a couple days now, just got started on my journey to lose the weight. My goal is to lose about 20 lbs of fat. All I can say is that all these tips, including this one, have really helped me, a teenager, stick with it. Thank you for that!
