Current Weight: 214.8 (+2.4 lbs from last week)
So this is the last weigh in of the Challenge was 213.4 lbs which means that at the end of the challenge I actually gained 1.4 lbs. So sad but true.
Now let's look back at the rules to see what happened:
Select a caloric daily limit on which you (and I) can lose weight weekly.
I did NOT follow this AT ALL. I stopped calorie counting early in the game and never truly re-started. I attempted different food diets never finding one that really stuck with me.
Exercise a minimum of 3x a week.
This I had no problems with. I have been able (for the most part) to have some sort of activity at least 3x a week. The consistency of my work outs were varied and my commitments to a specific work out was non existent but to say I've been a couch potato would be lying. Since my weight loss journey started exercise has hardly been the problem.
This I admit was yo-yo. I would hydrate well one week. Hydrate horribly the next. You would think I could keep up with something as simple as drinking water. But looking back.. not so much.
Choose 1 (or more) books and work on your main obstacle-to-losing issue(s)
I was all over the place with this one. I would start a book here, finish a book there and never actually started reading a book and finish it in one go. I did pick up a lot of random information that will help me but never dedicated enough time to one book alone.
And of course the last rule:
Get a smaller sized dress.
Here again is the dress I picked at the beginning of the challenge:
I AM planning on wearing this dress for the holidays. Once I'll accessorize it with one of my favorite belts it doesn't look that bad. What do you think?
*Ready for the Holidays!*
I don't think it looks that bad. *nods* It will do.
So all in all I want to thank everyone that supported me. It was a great challenge and although I fell short I don't regret joining and keeping up with everyone. I will lose the weight. I just have to keep fighting against this yo-yo battle I'm in.
This is also my 2nd year Blog-a-versity. Two years in to w0rld's FAT blog and I'm still going strong.
I'll make a new entry talking about my blogging anniversary later this week.
Thank you everyone!
