Back-To-School Challenge - Final Weigh-In

Our back-to-school challenge ended last Saturday, August 8,2009. We were hoping to lose 20 lbs by that date. Here's the stats:

Chris - total loss: -18.6 lbs.
Leah - total loss: -13.0 lbs.

As you can tell, Chris came the closest. GO CHRIS!!!!! She's only 1.5 lbs away from being able to tell the teachers that she's lost 20 lbs over the summer. I just know she'll make it this week.

I'm a little bit farther away. There are no excuses, but I do have little reasons. Just last week I finally decided to cut some more high-fat foods out of my diet...this has taken me some time to do. So, while I would've loved to have lost 20 pounds by now I'm not really upset about it. I'm just glad that I'm still down.

We both decided that challenges are a little stressful. We're not in this for a race, but for lifetime changes. So, for now I don't think we'll be doing any more challenges. :)
