Stop Being Fat! Friday.

...or maybe Saturday this week. I have been absent for while and for that I am sorry. Actually, on second thought, I'm not. We were off having a blast in Florida, and family time comes first in my book. Sadly we are back home now. We got in yesterday and I am trying to get back into the swing of things.

So remember how I told you about the 100 days to get HOT for SUMMER challenge I was in? Well it is officially summer now and our challenge ended yesterday. I was worried because the final weigh in was the day we got back from vacation. BUT I was down! That is a miracle I tell you! I am so glad I took my work out clothes and actually used them while I was in Florida. So in 100 days I lost a total of 35 pounds! I lost a ton the first month or so and then have been stuck for a while. But I finally broke my plateau and couldn't be happier!

For the challenge we had to take before and after photos so I thought I would share them. (Again I wish I took before photos when I started on my weight loss journey.) But I can see a difference over the last 100 days.

And guess what? Out of the 50 of us... I came in 3rd! I was am shocked! And so happy. That means I won $200!!! (and after our trip we can sure use it!)

As a group we lost over 600 pounds! Isn't that awesome?!? Oh and they are doing another challenge: Smokin' Hot Summer Challenge going from 6/10/2012 - 09/02/2012 (12 weeks). Yes. It starts tomorrow, but if you are interested in joining let me know. It's a $20 buy in and all of the money goes to the top 3 winners (biggest % lost not the number of lbs). There is a group on facebook for the challenge and we weigh in once a week  (at home, you just post your lbs lost for that week) and have weekly challenges as well (more opportunities to win stuff!) I'd love it if you'd join! (And it's all online so you don't have to live local to join)

Scotty did awesome as well and lost 38 pounds! He came in 5th place! (If you want to see his before and afters let me know and I will talk him into letting me post them.) He's doing the next challenge with me too. The motivation we have gotten from the group is amazing!

Thanks for the support guys. You guys rock.
