Shrink Into Summer - The Finale

How quickly eight weeks have flown by!

I started this Sisterhood challenge with a goal that may have been too lofty. Fifteen pounds. That's almost two pounds per week.

I don't have a personal trainer and chef living with me, everyone. What was I thinking?!

But, I have learned some things about myself. Such as:

- I will never enjoy working out, but once I get myself started into the workout, I feel SO MUCH BETTER.

- Next challenge, I will take my measurements, because I feel smaller, even though the scale doesn't reflect as much.

- When I am trying to lose weight, I should never ever bake cookies, cakes, cupcakes or pies. Or bread. Because while I would love to say I have self control, I have absolutely none when it comes to fresh baked goods.

- I have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels and her unsupportive sports bras.

My results? Since you asked, fine. Here they are:

Starting Weight: 182
Last Weeks Weight: 179.6
This Weeks Weight: 178.0
Percentage Lost (if I did my math right, HA): 2%

Almost two pounds! Hollah! Pretty good considering I ate the meal my husband prepared for my birthday, which included lots of butter, alfredo sauce, pasta and bread.

But he made me dinner. Which is huge. So I ate it.

Now I'm waiting for the next Sisterhood Challenge...bring it ON!

lol! i'm with you - if the hubs cooks, i'm eating it no complaints!

congrats on your weight loss!

in jillians defense it is VERY difficult to get sports bras for smaller chested woman (i'm a pear so my top is teenie-tiny and my bottom...um...well isn't). a XS is considered a 33...so much for us 32s out there!

Yeah, I made the mistake of baking a couple of cakes in the last few weeks, too. We NEVER have desserts in the house, so I'm not sure what possessed me, but because it was such a huge treat, we DEVOURED them. Amazingly, I managed to stick to my eating plan ~ which has never happened before!

I think you've done really well with the weight loss and the shredding. Keep up the great work and we'll see you in the next challenge!!
