8 week Weight Loss Challenge

I love the thought of a fresh start. Kaity, from Kaity Bug Blogs came up with this great 8 week weightloss challenge. The challenge goes for 8 weeks and anyone who wants to participate pays $10 via PayPal. Weigh ins will be every Monday morning and it will go by percentage lost, not pounds lost. There will be a 1st, 2nd and maybe 3rd place winner, depending on how many people we get. The winners get the money!

Pretty simple, right?

So for my first weigh in I used my mom’s at-home scale.

Then later on in the day I used the nursing home’s more legit scale. I chose to go with this number as my starting point and will now be using this scale throughout the challenge.

So yeah! We’ll see how this goes! When I met my husband 5 years ago I weighed 97 POUNDS. I would love to weigh 97 pounds again! I’d honestly be happy just hitting 100. However, since this is the internet and the internet can be a little judgemental, I feel the need to do the whole “its not about a number on the scale, it’s about being genuinely healthy” disclaimer. But losing a couple lbs wouldn’t hurt, right?

Let’s do this!

Kaity created a group on Facebook and if you want to join along I’m sure she’d love to have you! Just contact one of us 🙂

Happy New year!
