Last March a fellow co-worker started a "Biggest Loser" competition at my office. There were 26 participants all who contributed a monetary amount and the 3 with the highest % of weight loss at the end of 90 days declared the
biggest losers "winners". I had found myself in a predicament prior to this competition with having to go up a another size in clothes and thought, "Yep, that's for me!"
So I signed up.
And I exercised some more.
I. Would. Win.
Then after the first couple of weeks, I started to see results. The
ounces pounds started coming off. We weighed in each week and posted the % results, and I stayed up near the top. It was exciting and motivating.
But I was still determined I. Would. Win.
So I exercised some more, and sweat
like a pig a LOT.
When the final days came, I pushed myself and worked my butt off (literally) until I could see my name in the #1 slot!!
It was hard. But I WON!!!!
I lost a total of 25 pounds!!!
It was a life changing time.
I have dropped 3 sizes and am still eating right (most of the time), and still trying to exercise as often as I can....
Unless my toes vote against me. :)
