Well....I didn't win the 12-week challenge. Not even in my category. I was somewhat disappointed, but proud at least to have made it to the finals. I know that I am feeling better, and will continue to work hard at the goals I have set for myself.
I have heard from several people that they thought I should have won, at least in my category, but I guess you can't force people to make the right decisions! :) haha. I really did make a huge transformation, and am proud of where I am, and where I am headed.
I am still as motivated as ever on this healthy lifestyle. Although, in New Orleans I caved a couple of times eating things I probably shouldn't have....but man, that southern food. And those macaroons...yummmmm!
I have been through so much the past two years, that just signing up and completing the challenge was good enough for me. (Shhhhh...hush down competitive side...Second place is not the first loser)! :)
But really, it is so nice to see pictures of myself and not hate looking at it. I felt so disgusting before and am glad that I am getting back to who I am, and in more ways than just weight loss....I am feeling more motivated in so many aspects of life, and that is what it is all about.
I will take a picture of my before and after and may even consider posting it on here....maybe :)
