7 pounds down...

Thursday, January 31, 2013

But I came in second in the office weight loss contest. It's not determined by who lost the most but the percentage of weight lost. I actually lost more weight but by percentage I was behind by 0.27%. Of course the person that won weighs 50 pounds less than I do, so it was easier for her to get the higher percentage.

On to February's contest, which might be a bit more difficult since we all know that first month gets us hyped up and then the drop slows down. I know it's coming and I'm going to be prepared to deal with it by looking at my average loss per month. I've decided I want to do 5 pounds per month. I'm ahead for February by 2. Obviously I would love to get at least 5 or more but if it's 3, I'm still on track.

    Thanks everyone! I'm keeping it positive and trying harder to get that percentage with a smaller co-worker.

    great job! I'm in an office biggest loser too, and we are in week 4. A tiny girl joined 2 weeks late and is already 1st in percentage. Don't let it get you down! Just keep going and you'll soon be ahead! Good luck!
