Wednesday Weigh-in: Shink into Summer Finale!

I cannot believe that the Shrink into Summer challenge at the Sisterhood is already over!  It went by so fast!  Hopefully there is another challenge in on the books because I am totally ready to drop the last 12 pounds!  That’s right!  That’s all I have left to lose!  This morning’s weigh-in was 137.2! That’s down 1.6 from last week!  I am so excited and seeing that number get lower and lower is so motivating to get me to my goal!

I wasn’t able to run this morning (boo!) as I feel on the verge of a flare so I feel like its better to take a day off then to push through and end up much worse than I started off.  I must say that the bonus of living with chronic illness is that it teaches you to be very in tune with your body so when I felt the flare coming I tried to be sure to rest.  Last night I spent the evening curled up in our big chair with my pillow, laptop, and NCIS.

So onto the final results:

Starting weight: 164.4
Challenge starting weight: 146.6
Challenge Goal Weight: 140.0

Last week’s weigh-in: 138.8
Today’s weigh-in: 137.2
Change: -1.6

Challenge Change: -9.4
Overall Change: -27.2

I cannot believe that I was able to lose over 9 pounds on this challenge!  My goal was 6.6!  I am so close that the 30# mark I can taste it!

    Nice work girrrrrrl. Need a little more time and motivation. I am an excercise dodger from way back. The thing I hate most about people who say you need an hour of exercise a day is that they are right, unfortunately.

    Holy cow, girl! Almost 10 lbs in 8 weeks is amazing. At this rate, you will be at your goal in no time. I have to admit I’m a little jealous of you right now-you’ve managed to break into those elusive 130’s that seem to be just out of my reach. Whatever you are doing, just keep it up!
