The End... of a 12 week challenge

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Tonight was the end of my Healthy U 12 week Challenge. This is the challenge that I presented to my co-workers and 4 of them joined with me. It had a $250 pay out for top male and female with the highest percentage lost and top male and female with the highest weight lost. We only had numbers when we saw results and for a while I was in third place in the standings. I ended the challenge in 4th overall out of 98. Of course the 3 in front of me were all women so no $$$ for me. I would have had to lose 40 pounds in 12 weeks to win the challenge.

I was hoping to win some and be able to buy a new fancy scale. Do I really need the scale? No! I have a good scale, but mine doesn’t have hydration and all the other fancy features that I want. I took a class recently and we were weighed on a scale that had the body fat mass and percentage and the instructor explained the difference and how our mass should increase or stay the same and our % should decrease as you lost weight. Otherwise you are losing muscle not fat. I really want all those figures so I’m sure I’m doing enough to build my muscles.

So the bottom line is I am happy with my results! Tomorrow is my SparkPeople weigh in and measurements and I think I’m hitting a very good number unless the sleep monster strikes and adds a couple pounds to me. So I am a winner and tomorrow I hope to be a winner again!

    Wow! You placed extraordinarily high in those 98 people - CONGRATULATIONS!! You have every reason to be delighted with your results :) And I think you deserve a new scale one of these days. You understand the percentage factor and its implications so well! - Sandi emoticon
