Beach Challenge FINAL WEIGH-IN


GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!!

I weighed in at 226.0 this morning for a loss of .6 of a lb.

Between the free day on Sunday, the Chinese on Tuesday, not enough "hard" exercise, and eating pre-packaged stuff out of the freezer this week (more sodium), I'm not a bit surprised that my weigh-in is this low.

I missed my 16 lb. goal for this month.

~HOWEVER~

I'M STILL THRILLED!!!!

I lost 15 lbs this month!!!!  Which is the highest amount of weight I've lost in a month since I started blogging last June...even higher than my very first month when I lost 12 lbs.

So overall, this month's losses and this Beach Challenge have been a TOTAL success!!!

Thank you all so very much to everyone who joined in and tackled this challenge with me.  You are ALL winners in my book and I'm proud and blessed to call you friends!!

Leave me your weigh-in on this post, either today or tomorrow, so I can tally up all the winners.  If you hit the 10 lbs. lost mark...you're getting a tacky souvenir!!  Woo Hoo!!

Dwayne and I will be leaving for the beach early tomorrow morning.  I will be sure to do a post tomorrow night listing ALL of the winners, once everyone has had a chance to report their final weight.

I've got a full day ahead of me finishing up packing and wrapping up loose ends, so I'll check in periodically to check and post your weigh-in comments. 

I would say "good luck", but I don't believe in luck.  What you accomplished is all due to your determination, consistency, and effort, and I'm so proud of you all!!!  :)

  2. WOOHOO! Congrats on the success of the challenge. It was fun to participate but I didn't reach the goal but I'm ok with that.

    I lost 1.3 lbs. this week so I can't complain. Of course, I gained 1.5 last week so, ya know, it's a wash. Looking at the big picture though I've lost a total of 26.4 and I'm heading to the gym now. Consistency is the key, right?

    I hope you have a wonderful time on vacation. Have fun shopping for tacky souvenirs.

  5. Hi Tammy. Over a stone lost in a single month! Fabulous! And as you say, it's all down to dedication and hard work. And accountability. Are you going to keep up with the photographing everything you eat?

    I really hope that next month is just as successful.

    Enjoy your beach trip - and I have some ocean photos for you on my latest post.

  6. Congratulations, Tammy. You did fantastic. I was 199.6! Down .2 pound. But I'm in such a better place than I was last month at this time thanks to you! I've kind of flagged on the picture taking the last 2 days but intend to restart it, because those were the days I did the best.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation. Don't forget sunscreen, and have some fun for me! You are a wonderful friend and a lovely person.

  10. Congratulations...I don't think I can even dream about losing 15 lbs in a month! That is fantastic! I weighed in this morning at....*drumroll please*.....159.8 - down 1.8 lbs!!! Okay so that is only a 3.6 lb weight loss for the month, but OMG I'm in the 150s! Thank you for hosting this challenge! I really stepped up my game because of it and had I not joined, I probably wouldn't have even lost the 3.6 lbs. I am not sure but this may be my highest month since my first week! Thanks again girl! Anymore challenges out there? I'M IN...GOING CHALLENGE CRAZY now! LOL.

  27. Congrats girl!!I clocked in at 212 yesterday morning. So, I didn't make the challenge goal. :( However, I have made huge strides in my 3 Day for the Cure fund raising and training. I've logged in 17 miles so far this week. I don't mind the weight coming off slower now that I'm preoccupied with my team.
    Congrats to all that made the goal - it was a great challenge! Have fun on vacation!

    Hope you have fun at hte beach.

  30. YAY YOU!!! I am so happy for you, Tammy! You absolutely tore this challenge apart!

    As for me... well, I didn't make the ten pound goal, but I'm still very happy about my results this month. Your challenge was exactly what I needed to stay focused! I weighed in yesterday (Friday, I mean, but I'm posting really late on Saturday / early Sunday morning) at 143.2. Then I figured that I would wait to report until today (Saturday) just in case I actually dropped the additional 1.6 pounds I needed to make goal (you know I always seem to weigh lower on my weigh days). BUT, for whatever reason (I am wondering if it was bloating from the antacids I had to take last night for my nausea) I actually weighed higher this morning at 144.4. So... if it's okay with you, I am going to claim the lower number for this challenge ;) so that I can feel good about an 8.4 pound loss!

    I think I will leave the badge up on my blog if you don't mind though, just so that I can remember how far I came this late in the weight loss game. If I go by the lower number, that's still more than a 5% drop in body weight from the start of this challenge to the end! Thanks again for hosting this, Tammy!!!
