5% winter challenge participation working its intentions...

Saturday, February 28, 2015

WEIGHING IN on the WEIGH IN...I admit this time I am not losing weight. I started around 159 at the beginning of this winter 5% challenge, and I weigh 158 today. However, I am doing everything right, and I am losing fat for certain.

Apparently, exercise can build this stuff called muscle. It weighs more than fat, but you look a lot smaller in it. Imagine going through your 4th 5% challenge expecting to ace the 5% weight loss because you have done it the previous three challenges back to back to back. What I did not imagine is doing the 5% challenge and losing a whole size in my jeans without losing the 5%.

While I may not have officially lost weight, I have converted fat to muscle and dropped a size, while weighing almost exactly what I did seven weeks ago! Amazing!

I will be paying for an official body fat analysis before and after the next 5% challenge to confirm what my Gloria Vanderbilt's already have to say!

    How cool u will pay for the analysis!! Cool idea.


    The. NSV s r Pawsome. When I first came into. SPARKS I read a blog which totally encouraged me. She had been doing all things well. She had been a size 22, was at that time a size 10. In all of this she had lost less than 25lbs!!!

    She had taken pictures every time she went down a size, and also of the scale. So we were all able to see what she said was. True!!! Neatest blog I've read to this day!!
