Weigh-In Wednesday: End of Challenge


We're weighing in over at the Sisterhood. Another challenge is in the books. How did you do? Did you shrink?


My goal at the beginning of this challenge was to lose 10 lb. And that didn't happen. I didn't even get close. But I'm not down or discouraged about it. Sure, there were weeks where I didn't eat as well as I could have. One week I struggled with being sick, so work outs didn't happen. And I probably didn't eat as well as I could have that week either.

So, I know there are weeks where I could have done better. But those weeks are over, today is a new day, and I'm not discouraged. I still lost. And looking at the whole picture, I've lost a total of 62.2 lbs which is insane to me when I think about it. Just hitting the 60 lb alone this challenge was a major success for me, and I'm very happy with that.

I have personal challenges coming up. Summer and fall are when I tend to be most social. (Not that I'm extremely social anyway, but I do tend to go out more in the summer and fall.) So, I know there are going to be more weeks where I don't eat as well as I could and a work out may not get done. But I promise now to do the best that I can, and that's all that I can do. That's all any of us can do.

I'm proud of each and every one of you this challenge. Whether you lost 1 lb or 15 lbs or even if you gained (did I hear a gasp?), you had to have learned something about yourself. And that in itself makes you very successful!

Beginning weight for challenge: 146. 6
Last week's weight: 144.8
Ending weight for challenge: 143.8
Total loss: 2.8 lbs

I am down three pounds since jumping into the challenge three weeks ago. That is all I could hope for and I know my downward trend will continue now that I am serious about journalling again.

Congratulations for losing over 60 pounds!! That is incredible!

You are just doing great! You are going to be doing fine this summer. The heat will also help you lose. At least that is what I am telling myself:)
