The End of the Challenge

Well, my weight is up a little today - which I expected since I ate what I wanted to at both Christmas parties I went to this weekend. I know myself well enough to know that I hold on to that kind of stuff for a few days & will be back down to normal by the end of the week. Regardless, today was the last day to weigh-in & be measured for the Marcrom's Pharmacy Win To Lose Challenge. I KNOW I'm not even close to being the individual winner, but that's ok because I got a lot of motivation competing & have developed a habit in exercising. So here are my final results of the 8 week challenge: I've lost 9.5 lbs (could've been more if I'd tried harder on nutrition, but that will be a goal for the new year) & a total of 14 inches. I'm really happy with those results. I feel better & it has help me to start something that I consider a lifestyle change.

I took the girls for Christmas pictures today & by the time we got back into town & paid all the lovely monthly bills - I was out of time, so no rec center today. I am looking forward to Zumba tomorrow!! Hope you all have a wonderful week!!!

Hi Andrea,

Firstly may I say you have two stunning daughters and a beautiful blog. I am just starting out with my weight loss blog and noticed you are just a few months in. Great job on the weight loss to date! Any advice for a newcomer to weight losing or blogging?
