2007 Get In Shape Results!
Tonight they announced the results of my "Get in Shape" contest. It was a great night for my team as we took second place out of 17 teams competing. I was also blessed to win second place in my category, while my teammate Kerry won some serious cash by winning his category. We walked out of the gym happy campers.
The stats were like this: I lost 28 pounds and 7% body fat. I lost five and a half inches off my waist and five inches off my hips. I also lost an inch and a half off my thighs. I am really happy about this!
The bad part is the seriously cheesy grin on my face in the after picture, but we all have our crosses to bear. Hahaha! I am hoping to lose 20 to 30 more pounds by the end of July. Next Monday my teammate and I are going to start the second cycle of our contest, which is called "Stay In Shape". We are going to take advantage of our momentum and keep weight lifting together. I am really thrilled about this!
It feels good to see results and know that I am doing the right thing by spending so much time in the gym. It also makes me feel better about eating so judiciously. Special thanks to Laura for her inspiration!
