Biggest Loser contest

Now that it is April 1st, I have completed my first major project of the year. On January 1, thanks to the creativity of my brother- and sister-in-law, I started a family Biggest Loser contest. The last day was March 31, so I did my final weigh in and now you get the results.

By the way, I know that today's date might throw some of you off, but I have photographic evidence below.

I am so glad to be done with this contest. I made a big change in my life and saw results, and I am excited to continue with my healthier lifestyle, but I am also excited to allow myself an indulgence here and there.

I started at 231 pounds and my final weight was 194.5 pounds. I lost 36.5 pounds, for a total weight loss of 15.8 percent. I haven't weighed under 200 since I was 19 years old. I turn 29 in about 30 days, so I'm going to try to better when I turn 39.

Here are my before-and-after shots.


I can now even wear my UnderArmour shirt without feeling self-conscious!

Wow, your blog has been spammed! I think that's an honor (?).

Seconding the request to hear the methods behind your loss.
