The time has come....

...My local weight loss competition has ended and I didn't win, I did, however, come in 3rd place (at least that's how it's looking as of right now!)

Since January 3rd when I started this whole mess I have: lost a total of 22.2 pounds. 10.25% in body fat. Gone from a size 16 to a size 12 (and those are starting to get baggy). found my waist! Gone shopping in my own closet and completed a 10k in under 3.5 hours. IN THE MUD. I have newfound self confidence and I am loving my new body.

But my time in weight loss world is not over. I am glad that the competition is over, towards the end I feel like it dragged by, I love who I met and who I've made friends with throughout it and the motivation and support but after awhile I felt that we were just repeating ourselves and we all had lives to live as well. So I am not terribly sad it's over, I am happy that we all made it through and now we can move on to the next step in our lives. That step for me is continuing on to lose another 40 or so pounds by the end of the year. I want to be skinny AND healthy.

I need to get back on track with goals just like my buddy Jen. I am ready to start posting goals again. Nothing crazy big but enough to get me motivated. So my goals are as follows:

Gym: 6 gym workouts before next weigh in
Pounds: Lose 5 pounds before next weigh in
Target: abdominals and legs. I may be losing but I still feel squishy!

Lastly, I'll leave you with a little mosaic that I put together of my time in the local competition!
