Weight Loss Challenge

So, last year around April, we started a weight loss challenge at work. We all pitched in $25 and whoever lost the most percentage of their original body weight would win the pot. During that competition which lasted 2 months, I lost a total of about 12lbs. I managed to maintain that and I even lost a couple more pounds after that. Then, I gained a few pounds back over the holidays and all.

We decided to do round 2 of this challenge at work and it started last week. At my first weigh-in, I was exactly the same weight as my last weigh-in of the first challenge. The scale at work is a little off compared to my home scale, so I think my weight is actually a little lower. But I guess that doesn't matter because we are using the work scale for the competition.

Well, this round 2 challenge has been super challenging already! I really don't feel motivated this time and I'm not sure what it is...geez, I have a Hawaii trip in a few months, I should be totally motivated! It's not happening though. So, today was the first weigh-in day and I was down 1lb. I guess it doesn't feel like a great start for me, but at least I lost a little.

Hopefully since I'm posting this on my blog, it will force me to make an update every once in a while to tell you about my progress...good or bad. Maybe this will give me a little more motivation.

Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck!! I think little losses are more important than big ones. Slow and steady is always good! :-)
