Before I got on the scale today I said I was going to make the scale my bitch because I was tired of the measly losses I'd had the past couple of weeks. I wanted to see the numbers really moving again. I did! I was down a whopping 3.4 pounds this week. I really bumped up the effort and amount of activity I had, not even using weather as an excuse one day last week. I was active on 5 days last week and racked up 26 activity points. Clearly, when I took a short break from the activity (because I was sick and the weather) the weight loss decided to take a break too.
During the meeting Karen asked the group how many people have trouble losing weight during the holidays. Lots of nodding and raised hands and then she issued a challenge for us. Her meeting groups would compete against each other to see which group could lose the most weight. Awesome. I like a good competition as much as the next guy and this will, hopefully, help keep things even more in check over the holidays. I mean being accountable to yourself is one thing but to be accountable to a whole group of people? Yikes!
Have you ever been a part of a contest like this? How did you do?
PS - Big thanks to Bob for the great photos
