Wednesday Check-in: Holiday Hoedown!

Holiday Hoedown Challenge

Its kick-off time for the new challenge over at the Sisterhood and I am so excited! With the holidays coming up I was really worried about adjusting to being in “maintenance mode” but now I don’t have to! I’ve got an A-MAZ-ING team to support me!  The awesome Healthy Holiday Ho’s to be exact!

Like Shrinkivor, this challenge will have both physical and non-physical challenges every week as well as weekly giveaways!  Woo-hoo! The team at the end of the challenge with the highest weight loss percentage is the winner! However, there are some teams focusing on maintaining weight and/or fitness more than the scales (our team being one of them).

This week’s challenges are log as many exercise minutes as possible and outline goals for this challenge so I am excited to get started!

As I weighed in this morning, I had a momentous occasion! I officially hit my goal weight! 125.4!!!! So I was able to fill in my weight chart all the way to the top! I created this “Motivation Wall” during my very first Sisterhood challenge – Rethink Your Shrink – so it was awesome to see how far I have come! Take a peak:

So I am now even more excited to get this challenge started! Hopefully my appointment at the pain clinic on Monday can help me really rack up some exercise minutes!

Here are my stats:

Starting weight: 164.4

Last week’s weigh-in: 127.0
Today’s weigh-in: 125.4
Change: -1.6

Overall Change: -39
