It's OVER!!!

My Biggest Loser contest that is. ;-) We had our final weigh in this morning, and a BIG congrats to Katie O and Karilynn!! You guys did an amazing job!! Super proud of you both!!

I weighed in this morning at 131 lbs!!! I started the competition at 165 lbs... so that means I have lost 34 lbs in 6 months!!! WOW!!! Even though I missed my BL goal by 6 lbs (I was shooting for 125 lbs) I must say I am still really really happy with what I've accomplished thus far.

I am only 1 lb away from my WW goal of 130 (I aimed my WW goal a little higher... I wanted to give myself a little wiggle room there.. lol). We are going to Utah next week, so I will miss my meeting next week... but at the one the week after.... I plan on weighing UNDER 130!! I think I can lose at least one pound in 2 weeks. LOL I just need to make sure I don't blow my points while we are in Utah. So.... if I weigh in at/below 130 in 2 weeks... I will have hit my WW Goal... then, all I have to do is weigh within 2 lbs above or below that weight for 6 weeks and I will have hit Lifetime... which means... FREE MEETINGS!!! WooHoo!! So, that means... by August I should make Lifetime... and not have to pay anymore. YAY!!

I wanted to also say a HUGE TAHNK YOU to Melissa and Tammy for putting this whole thing together. I could have joined WW on my own.. with no other motivation... but I have no doubt in my mind that having this BL Group really helped in my progress thus far. I don't think I could have done it with out all the great support from all the other girls. Just knowing that there were/are other people going thru it with me... it really made a difference. I know we had a few gals who sorrta pooped out after a couple months...and I wanna say this to them: I really really urge you to get back on the wagon! You have no idea how much HAPPIER you will be if you can do it (and I know you all can).

I don't know how many of the other gals are going to keep their BL Blogs going after today... but I plan to. If only to update my progress once a week. It has helped me, I think, to be accountable for what I'm doing, and not doing. I also really hope that we can do anotehr BL Group next January. Even if it's only to maintain.. or just lose the "Holiday Weight"... I would love to do this again next year. I just hope I don't have as much to lose next year.... LOL
