I am taking up Walt's Challenge in my modest way. My doctor says I'm too fat so I plan on losing 14lbs before IAM in October. There - I've said it. See you in Chicago. You'll have to look a little harder to see me!

I've been planning to quit smoking for a long time now. It seems there is never a good time to do so. I am finally ready to commit. My commitment is to quit smoking by the end of this year (2019). Hopefully before Thanksgiving :) Wish me luck!

Losing 2 Stone by IAM. Loosing weight has always been difficult as food is a go to for me, especially when stressed. I started this challenge a little earlier this year when I met up with Walt and we talked about the challenge. So far I have lost 1 stone by walking a bit faster with my dog and listening to TED Tech Talks. With a month to go I am a bit behind with my goal as the busy season in moving is the most stressful and therefore difficult weight loss wise for me. I think the walking and listening to the TED talks are good for my mental health as much as my health, as they give me a break out.

Hi Walt, it's my Brother Mick Dolan. He is 55 but always fancied himself as a performer. Learnt to play guitar several years ago. He would be happy to be included. He is going to try and release a collection of songs written and sung by him. Note he has never written a song before. So his challenge is to release his first song by IAM on YouTube. Big challenge.

My challenge is to improve my overall wellness by increasing my physical activity. I plan to do this by incorporating three 1-hour walks per week with an output to work up to 10,000 steps per walk. By doing this I also hope to shed some weight which will benefit me physically, mentally, spiritually and will allow me to become a better best me.
