Sizzling Hot for Summer Challenge
Total loss for the challenge is 8 pounds. When I started, my digital scale said 188.6, but I couldn't get a photo of it, so I used my son's scale. It said 187. This morning, my digital scale said 179.6, so I thought "Woohoo! That should make it loss of 9lbs and the other scale should say 178. No dice. It also said 179. What the.......?
I'm thrilled that I've lost 8 pounds, though I personally will count it as 9. But for the challenge, the photo evidence is EIGHT. I figured out that if I hit save on the digital scale, I had time to get off, pick up the camera and get a photo of it. Grrrrr. Wish I'd have figured that out at the beginning! The body fat percentage said 37% with my first weigh in and I was pretty happy with that since it's the lowest it's been. Plus I've lost 3 inches over the challenge, so I consider it a success, though I know there are a couple of challengers who lost quite a bit more. Kudos to you gals! Not sure I'll have time to check in with everyone today. I have a chocolate party tonight and need to get ready. And another point, I made chocolate last night and did some sampling. I was a little surprised to be at an all time low this morning!!!! First time on the digital scale below 180.
My updated photo (I'm going to need to take these capris in, the hips are rather baggy. WOOT!)
