I weighed in at work yesterday and had lost 3 lbs! I think I've only lost 4 lbs. total so far in this 5 week challenge (due to the unfortunate Girl Scout cookie incidents). I may still have a chance at winning though. After talking to everyone yesterday, they seem to be stuck or gaining.
My scale said 198 this morning! I'm so glad, especially after yesterdays lunch of salad, pasta, garlic bread, and Tiramisu! I can't believe how many carbs they served us. It was yummy though.
11 more pounds and I will be 1/2 way to my goal. I need to start exercising again. I'm sure that would speed things along and give me some muscle.
I'm happy with the progress I've made although it is discouraging at times because I haven't changed sizes yet. Things are looser. I'm having a hard time losing weight around my hips and my chest. I wish I would have measured myself when I started.
