Week 3 Biggest Loser

Down 1.8 lbs this week! Not the best week I've ever had -- I think I overate a little at a couple dinners, but I am getting super close to my goal weight. Exciting! I am 38 lbs down! Just about 10 more to go.

I came in 4th in the competition this week, and I am in 4th overall.

2nd Biggest Loser weigh-in

Wow -- I lost another 2.6 lbs this week!! Wahoooooo!!!

I have added an additional workout to my exercise routine. I am doing the Couch to 5k program, so I am running/walking for about 20 minutes every other day. I'm still as slow as ever, so we'll see how it goes. But the weight continues to come off!

I am feeling great and so close to my goal. I've lost 36.4 lbs total!!

As far as Biggest Loser goes, I came in 2nd place this week. I am 5th overall. Just trying to keep the pace and stay consistent!!

My first Biggest Loser weigh-in

Well, I lost 2.4 lbs this week! Same as last week, which is great. I'm now down to a weight I know I haven't been in at least 7 years! I cleaned out my closet yesterday, and I tried on some clothes that I had when I first got married -- and I fit into them!! They were a little snug, but it won't be long now!

I kind of got creamed though, in terms of weight loss, in the competition. I finished 6th out of 9! Yikes! These people are hardcore!

Total weight lost = 33.8 lbs

Biggest Loser Time

This week I lost 2.4 lbs!! Woohoo! I am loving my rate of progress and the fact that weight continues to come off! Total weight lost = 31.4 lbs.

I started a Biggest Loser contest that starts today with the initial weigh-in. If there's anyone out there that sees this today and wants to participate -- let me know! Here's the link to more info.

Anyway, I'm looking to lose at least 16 lbs, but I would love 20. 16 actually gets me to my married weight, but I'll just see how I feel when I get there. Maybe I won't want to go much more. I'm hoping to hit my goal by the end of July! The Biggest Loser competition runs through the end of August.

So here I go with another Biggest Loser competition. I'm really excited to be doing it with a bunch of friends this time!

Final weigh-in for 3 month goal

I want to write a longer post one of these days, but today's not it. Just wanted to weigh-in. I burned a lot of calories on our backpacking trip, and I also consumed a LOT of calories. So I wasn't surprised when I got home and my weight was the same. I do feel like I might have built up some more muscle, though.

I haven't worked out since getting home because I'm sick. But I'm back to my healthy eating and still managed to lose some weight.

The backpacking trip was amazing, but I will post about that later. 

This week I lost 2 pounds! So that brings the final 3 month weight loss to 29 pounds. Super close to my goal! Wish I could have hit 30, but I'll take the 29! 

Now it's time to start a new goal. 20 pounds in 2 months -- by the end of July. 10 lbs a month worked before, right? I'll just keep pushing it! In 20 more pounds I'll be marriage weight! 

So here are the final numbers -- 

I only recorded my waist and hip size in the beginning. Wish I had done everywhere, but oh well. I measured my arms, but never wrote it down, and I can't really remember what it was -- but I know I lost at least 1 inch from my arms (probably more). I lost FIVE inches from my waist and FIVE inches from my hips! I dropped two jean sizes and one shirt size. 

Can't wait to see what the next two months bring!
