Mel's/Sunshine's 12 week Challenge - Week 1.

I have been on this wagon before. I waged that battle and won. I felt fantastic when I final made my goal weight. And now I just feel like I failed. I *know* that I haven't failed, I have kept off half the weight now for over 2 years. But I not where I was or want to be. I'm hoping that this challenge will help me to get back to where I should be..Physically and mentally. I have great expectations!

Anyway...onto the challenge!
