Big Bridesmaid Challenge Results

... drum roll please ...

My Big Bridesmaid Challenge Results are:

Start Date: January 1, 2012
Start Weight: 245 lbs.
Current Weight: 235 lbs.
Total Loss: 10 lbs.

I'm pretty sure that I counted wrong at some point in my Big Bridesmaid Challenge because I think it was suppose to be 31 weeks long, but according to my last update, I was only on week 30. Regardless, this has been a loooong challenge! Even though I loved this challenge, I am defintiely happy that it is over. I am ready to take a week off of challenges all-together and then begin with something brand new come August 19th.

I didn't lose as much weight as I initially set out to lose in this challenge; however, I am still really proud of myself. I lost 10 pounds and kept it off over the summer, my hardest time to lose/maintain any weight! If it weren't for this challenge, I know that I wouldn't be where I am today. Staying motivated and sticking with a challenge for 30 weeks was another big accomplishement for me. Even though I didn't have many good reports this summer, I still reported each week as planned back in January of this year.

As I indicated above, I will not be participating in a challenge this week. I am, however, really excited to start a new *shorter* challenge next, Sunday.

A BIG thank-you to everyone who supported me throughout this challenge!
An update from my friends wedding, to include pictures of me in *the* dress, is soon to come.

  1. Yay!! Glad you stuck with it!! 30 weeks is a long time an acknowledging those off weeks is important too.
    I'm struggling with summer as well.
    I can't wait to see what you have planned for the next challenge!
