Audrey & I at final weigh in - she's lost 19lbs!!! Proud of her!
12 Week Weight Loss Competition
THE COMPETITION IS OFFICIALLY OVER (...well, at least one is!)
WEEK TOTAL: -7lbs
FINAL TOTAL: -46.2lbs
INCHES LOST: -23.5in
PERCENTAGE LOST: -14.4%
POSITION PLACED: 2nd (Yea, I know - total bummer that it wasn't first. *sigh* Saved Shauna, Trish & Richie some money though.)
LBS NEEDED TO HAVE TAKEN FIRST: 6.82lbs - *sigh*
WEIGHT WATCHERS TOTAL (since Feb): -65.2 lbs
Now for a fun fact - the competition was "technically" only 11 weeks - our coordinator didn't calculate the weeks accurately and there were 12 actual weigh in days (because she counted the initial weigh in), however, there were only 11 active weeks to compete. So I actually lost 46.2lbs in 11 weeks.
Now, just so everyone knows...when I do my work competition weigh in on Wed- chances are very likely that I will have gained. See below for details:1st time ever eating at Oklahoma Joe's - I felt guilty the whole time though. I only ate half of my sandwich and gave the majority of my fries away. (Granted the serve you super size, so I probably ate more than I should have on the fries)
This however, I did not feel so guilty about! -That's the part that's really going to frustrate Shauna! I seriously got a refill 3 times. Forget the food, I'm a pop addict. I haven't had ANY pop in probably 2 months or longer. The burning sensation as it trickled down my throat was truly missed though. NOW, I'm going to have to live by the fruit of the spirit better known as SELF CONTROL...because this is a serious problem folks!
Audrey & her husband Matt chowing on some BBQ! Okay, they truly were posing for my blog - nothing candid about it. Thought it was funny though! :)
So this is the point where I am going to need all of your love and support the most. I cannot stress enough - I do not want to get lazy and "fall asleep" so to speak. I still have a loooooong way to go - and I don't want to be another statistic that loses weight and the relapses with an "extra side of fries" on the side. lol I WANT and NEED to continuously pursue my goal and not lose heart!
IF YOU ARE A PRAYING PERSON AND THINK OF ME - PLEASE PRAY! I'm going to need all the support in the world to stay focused now! This is SO MUCH more than just some weight loss goal to me - I truly feel God's transforming me from the inside out through this and its a process for His glory and honor, not my own.
I know I say it all the time - but I am sincerely thankful for each of you who continuously encourage me. I can't wait to meet some of you in person...

Galatians 6:4 (NKJV)
But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
