Start 250 Goal 237 Final WI = 244 - 6 lbs

This final weigh in was not what I'd hoped for but progress is progress. emoticon

I was quite amazed at the measurement results because it does not feel like I am that much different. I did try on some pants I bought on sale last March but was too small for me and they fit so I knew something was happening.

I did have a good routine of going to the gym before work. I do have some vacation time during the holidays while Lavinia is away so I am not quite sure what to do with myself. I usually pick up extra hours when she is gone. I'm sure I will come up with something. I do want to keep up with my exercising and going to the gym. I know my eating will not be the best but plan to start BLC 24 at the same weight or less than my current weight.

Here are my before and after pics. (Keep in mind I lost 5 lbs while waiting for BLC23 to start so there is a difference of 11lbs in the pic and measurements)

I first thought that I did not look any different but I can see that my stomach does not jut out much farther than my bust anymore. There is a small difference but hopefully the next round will have some more noticeable results. I plan to be a little more dedicated and consistent. I ended up being distracted this round with a temporary job position which has now come to a close. It was a great experience and I am glad that I did it even though it took more to balance life, work, and workouts.
