Results of the Fall 5% Challenge

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Mid October, I was aiming to lose about 1lb/week for 8 weeks. I was incredibly motivated and of course, life happens and derailed me at about week 5. That week, I got super sick for 8-10 days. The following week, I had sick kids and I was just completely lazed from the week before. The week after, I couldn't get going again. This week I did minimal things especially because it's been so darn cold here. This was the results for me:

Starting weight 10/12: 170.8
5% Goal: 8.5
Weekly Goal:1
Goal Weight:162

Week 1 ~ 10/19: 171.0
Week 2 ~ 10/26: 169.6
Week 3 ~ 11/02: 167.8
Week 4 ~ 11/09: 167.2
Week 5 ~ 11/16: 167.8
Week 6 ~ 11/23: Forgot to post weigh in on group
Week 7 ~ 11/30: 168.2
Week 8 ~ 12/07: 167.6

Now, I'm not angry with the 3.4lb loss. I think it's great. Am I angry or upset about having not lost more, not really. I am a 'little' disappointed but only because I know I can do better. I mean, the last portion of it, I didn't do anything. Only my fault for allowing it to happen.

What are my goals this month?

I am simply aiming to hit that 165 mark. I am going to try to make better food choices. Overall, I haven't done too bad, but there is always room for improvement. I have 3 weeks to knock off those last 2-3lbs before the year is over and then the Winter Challenge begins! I will be ready!

I've done 1/3 kickboxing classes this month and really want to get that walk/jog program done.

My girlfriends and I didn't do the Santa Shuffle today because we had awful wind chills here and we just are not going to risk our skins. There's always another race and most certainly next year! I will be ready for it!

    You still lost some weight. That's better than nothing emoticon

Next challenge, you'll be even more motivated.

    You did MUCH better than me. From Halloween on I kept gaining, until this last week (when I felt embarrassed about my lack of weight loss) I actually lost 2 lbs. Overall, I gained!! emoticon
