Great Job Everyone!

Well, I didn't win, but I don't feel like a loser. I am at 7.44% FOR NOW. I plan on squashing Jordan's percentage, it's just going to take me longer to do it. I got everything out of this competition that I wanted, except winning. I was able to make a routine change to incorporate exercise almost daily and was able to change our eating habit to be more healthy. I like trying new recipes and finding ways to cut calories. I'm so proud of everyone who participated! Here's to hoping we won't have to do this again because we will all maintain ourselves. Good Job Everyone!!! Our before and after pictures are coming soon, I didn't have enough time this morning to take a picture before Greg left for work so I'll take it tonight and post it ASAP.

Hooray! It's Over

I am so glad to be done with this contest. I made a big change in my life and saw results, and I am excited to continue with my healthier lifestyle, but I am also excited to allow myself an indulgence here and there.

I started at 231 pounds and my final weight was 194.5 pounds. I lost 36.5 pounds, for a total weight loss of 15.8 percent. I haven't weighed under 200 since I was 19 years old. I turn 29 in about 30 days, so I'm going to try to better when I turn 39.

Here are my before-and-after shots. Thank you all for pushing me to make this change!

I can now even wear my UnderArmour shirt without feeling self-conscious!

I am a looser...for being no where near close to winning. I will spare you all the final amount, but I did get on the scale today, and I was not happy with what I saw. I just need to know who to mail my check to.

Final Weigh In

So today is the last day. I weighed in this morning at 224. That's down 16 pounds from the beginning of the year. No too bad but it wasn't my goal. I still have a long way to go before Hood to Coast. So my percentage is 6.666%. I'm guessing I didn't win. Everyone else post your percentage so I know who to send my $10 to.

Losing Inches, Not Pounds

I tried on some old jeans today and they fit! Yea!!! I can't remember how long they've been in the closet, but the waist is actually up around my waist and the legs are tapered. They also don't have spandex in the material, so it's not streaching to fit. I may be out of style, but hope to lose one more pants size before I buy more clothes. Still at about 7% weight loss:)

Well as fun as vacation was, it was not good for my goals. It's not as bad as it could have been, I just made 0% progress, but on the same token, I didn't gain any weight either. I'm just still the same as before I left, I'm thinking back to all the wonderful treats I ate, like LOTS of chocolate malted crunch icecream, and Tanya's awesome lemon pie, Maren's oatmeal cookies, and the chocolate cake for mom's birthday, and the Golden Spoon, and more Golden Spoon and even more Golden Spoon. Also the frozen banana's, churros, Dole whip, corn dogs/fries, burgers etc from Disneyland. Oh and don't forget In-N-Out,.....twice, once with animal style fries. I don't regeret all these delicious treats, I just wish I had worked out more while I was on vacation. We did a pretty good job the first week, but then vacation got to us. Here's to getting back on track. I'm making it my goal to make it to gym even if Boston was up all night long and I am tired, I can sleep in April right?
