Project 10 Update
By Stephanie Kay
Project 10 is 9 weeks old. I can't believe we started this journey 9 weeks ago! It doesn't feel that long.
I thought this week would be a good day for an update.
What is Project 10?
In case you missed the introduction to Project 10 let me briefly explain what it is.
Project 10 is a group of women supporting and encouraging each other in a mutual goal of creating healthy lifestyles. For some of us a healthy lifestyle means weight loss, for others it means developing a habit of exercise. Our methods for living healthy are varied and unique.
What does 'Project 10' mean?
There seems to be a bit of confusion on the meaning behind Project 10. I chose the name for this project because when you ask a woman how much weight she needs to lose, invariably she says, "About 10 pounds." It could be more or less than that but 10 pounds seems to be the default response.
Project 10 represents all those women who want to feel and look healthy but are stuck in unhealthy habits and with an extra 10 (usually more) pounds.
How much longer will Project 10 last?
Great question. The initial group of Rhode Island based participants signed up for only 10 weeks. Next week is week 10. But, I feel like it's too early to end.
Some of us are finally starting to see a little success and I'm afraid if we quit now we'll revert back to old habits. So I've decided to extend Project 10 until September 26. Then in October, November, December we'll check in on the third Friday of the month.
My hope is to kick-off the New Year with a second round of Project 10 and a free ebook about creating a healthy lifestyle. Any content suggestions for the ebook are welcome and appreciated!
That's where Project 10 is currently and where I hope we go in the future. You are welcome to join in at anytime!!
