Are you ready to take 30 days of your life and see what can happen???  You should join us on Jamie's adorable blog. 

There's strength in numbers and I hope you'll join us!
Beginning July 15th, for 30 days, I'll be doing the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels.  Jamie started this all up at her blog and I decided that it is time to jumpstart my get fit plan.

I have been suffering from the symptoms of Hypothyroidism for three years now. After the military doctors told me there was nothing wrong, I did research myself. I thought it might be hypothyroidism and asked the doctor about it, but he assured me that it was nothing. A medical discharge for mental health and three years later a doctor finally listened and sure enough.... hypothyroidism. I had actually begun to believe I was crazy and making up the symptoms! So, here I am starting to get my life back and trying to loose some weight as well. I have stuggled with my weight. Recently I began a doctor supervised nutrition plan called MOVE. The hypothyroidism played it's part in me gaining 55 lbs in the last year and a half. I had lost hope completely of being in my recommended healthy weight range. Now though, I see that the weight gain had a cause, and now I can be treated. As I begin treatment for hypothyroidism, I am hoping that a balanced diet in combinatinon with excercise will help me reach a healthy weight again.

If you haven't heard of the 30 Day Shred before, it's a 20 minute workout that combines strength training, cardio and abs. It's HARD and it WORKS. I want to challenge myself and accomplish this.
Anybody else in?????

Here's what you need to do if you want to join Jamie and several others:

1. Take a before photo.
2. Take your before measurements.
(I'm going to measure hips, thighs, arms/biceps and waist.)
3. Go to Jamie's blog and comment
4. Purchase the dvd or borrow somebody's.
5. Once we're finished with our 30 days, we'll celebrate our accomplishments together!!!!
