Results (Kinda)

Final weigh in for Shrinking Days of Summer was today.

It was bittersweet. Yes, I lost a little weight and a few inches. This is good. But it's not AS MUCH as I was hoping for. I was hoping the team thing would work a little better.

But then I realized it DID work, in that I had all the support in the world. A virtual ear when days were tough. If I reached out, someone always responded with a word of encouragement. ALWAYS.

So, while the scale may be fighting me for each pound, I have also gained something truly wonderful, a great support system.

Thanks ladies - you're the BOMB.

So, final numbers:

Starting Weight:178.8
Last Week's Weight: 177.9
Today's Weight: 177

And, I also did my measurements:

Bust: So not telling. I am still breastfeeding so I assume they will deflate at some point and then I will miss them. But seriously, over the big boobs. Totally overrated.

Waist:
Start: 35"
End: 33"

Hips:
Start: 42"
End: 41"

I have decided to ditch the Weight Watchers Online. I seem to have a mental block against it. I have gone on and off of WW so many times over the years, I need a change. I am looking into Spark People, it is free, and one of my girlfriends is trying it right now. I'll let you know what I think as soon as I have a chance to dig in and have a look.

And, I am still running. I'm on week 4 of the C25K and it's going well. Not just well, great. The workouts are challenging and I can feel my endurance building. Love that.

So, the journey continues. I have a little over four months before I go to Kauai, and though I know I won't be wearing a bikini, I would like to put on a bathing suit sans a t-shirt and shorts over the top.

I want a tan!

YAY!! The first two paragraphs had me a little nervous...I'm glad we didn't fail you!

Congrats on the loss overall (pounds and inches)!

Great job, Heather! I agree, the support throughout this challenge has been wonderful.

Congrats on the inches lost -- they speak more loudly and more accurately than the scale some weeks. I must remember to take my measurements in time for the next challenge.

Way to go!
