Weight Loss Challenge results


I ended up losing 24.4 lbs. in 5 weeks. I'm pretty sure that I won the challenge at work. Several people opted not to weigh yesterday, and I think they have mostly given up. I only lost 1 lb. this past week. I have not noticed a huge difference in myself. I was able to wear a pair of pants that I haven't worn for awhile. The upper portion of my body seems to be going nowhere! I would like to see some loss there.


I am going to stick with the same things that I've been doing. I'd like to be close to my goal by July 4th. I think that is a reasonable goal.


I'm hoping that we start a new challenge at work. It was good motivation for me. I may just need to set mini goals for myself to keep me motivated. I'm thinking a new book for every 10 pound loss would be good!

Good for you, almost 25 pounds in 5 weeks is really good. Keep up the good work. I think setting small goals and rewarding yourself sounds like a great idea.
