Why did you enter the SSS contest by BuffMother?

I entered the SSS contest so I could be more accountable for the work I need to do to reach my goals.  I love the challenges and support I get in these challenges. It seems like all entrants want EVERYONE to succeed.
What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 70 days? I tried to check in often and keep up to date with everyone’s blogs.  I tried to be honest about my efforts and sometimes LACK of effort.  I took some focus off eating and just tried to meet each mini-challenge head on so I could see the most result.  Most of all I tried to find more of a balance in all areas.  It seems as though sometimes when I get dedicated to workouts or eats that my home and family suffer.  This time I really tried to make sure I attacked from all directions so NO part of my world was neglected.
How do you feel about your success? I am happy with the scale weight I have lost.  I love that my belt is 2 holes tighter now.  I would’ve loved to have seen even more but who doesn’t want MORE?  Just fuels me for heading into holidays and BEYOND!!
What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals? With my 3 girls and all their activities it is mostly a time and energy obstacle.  I sometimes get into a mental slump and I really had to reach out and push past all of that to keep going.
What would you like to tell the world about BuffMother? I just want everyone to come here and spend time get to know all these lovely ladies.  It is one of the most wonderful places to be and can really help you stay on track and learn so many new things!
