ShrinkaVersary Challenge: Final Weigh In – The Shrinking Jeans of Heather


December 16, 2009 By heather

This challenge, for me, did not end up like I wanted it to – but in life, how often does that happen? Not often. I wanted to get down to 160. What I weighed when I was first pregnant.

But, stuff happened, like stress (and unfortunately the kind where I eat), travel and the holidays. So, here I am, at the end, and I’m only down .4 from where I started .- I lost 1.1 pounds this week and end this challenge at 167.3.

Yes, this was the yo-yo challenge. All I can say is at least I’ve shrunk since the beginning. I can accept that.

I just hit the halfway mark on the EA Sports Active More Workouts Challenge. I’m loving it! I have even gotten to the point that I will work out in front of my husband…this is HUGE. I used to make him leave the room.

Running is going surprisingly well. I’m motivated. I push through discomfort (all the while chanting: it will never hurt worse than it does RIGHT at this very moment – unless you give up).  I suppose signing up for a half marathon and the threat of humiliation if you can’t finish is some pretty hardcore motivation.

Christmas is next week (duh). I’m anticipating some food carnage, though I will try to keep it to a minimum. I also plan to exercise as much as possible. Hopefully the extra endorphins will help manage my stress level as well.

What’s your plan? Do you have one?
