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
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!

Congratulations on the loss! You knocked this challenge out of the ballpark!
I am visiting from the SITS blog challenge!! I am so excited to find you! I am struggling with weightloss and was just talking myself into kicking myself in the rear today! SO, good luck in the challenge, and I look forward to reading lots more of your post =)
I had the same issues until I found the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans! Their challenges are so motivating! They’ve got a team challenge coming up! You need to check it out!
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.
nice work…I need a group to help me get motivated…count me in for the next challenge.
WHAT an inspiration! Kudos! You slaughtered that challenge!!
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!
Great job this week and overall for the challenge! :o)
Excellent results!! Goooo you! And it’s so exciting to be close to your goal. You can do it!
Way to go! Maybe I just need you to come to my house, instead of Jillian!
(I hear there IS another challenge coming!)
You OWNED this challenge! I am so proud of you! You are going to hit that 30 pound mark before you know it! CONGRATULATIONS!!
Wow – that’s amazing work you’ve done, way to go on such a great weight loss!!!
