Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge: Month 2 Weigh-In

It’s wasn’t a good month for me in the weight loss challenge. Lots of stress and other crazy things going on took me off focus with eating better and moving more. And the results show it:

Initial weigh-in: 242

Month 1 weigh-in: 234

Month 2 weigh-in: 235

Gained this month: 1 pound

This weekend, I’m on a quick, relaxing getaway. Then next week, it’s time to re-focus and get back on track. Still 4 months to go in the challenge!

Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge: Month 1 Weigh-In

As you may recall, I’m participating in the Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge. I did my month 2 weigh-in today. Here are the results:

Initial weigh-in: 242

Month 1 weigh-in: 234

Loss this month: 8 pounds

This second weigh-in was a longer period at 7 weeks (the rest will be at 4 weeks). So I lost 1 pound per week. This is short of my 2 pound per week goal. However, I’m still proud of the achievement and look forward to the next weigh-in.

Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge: Initial Weigh-In

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am participating in the $10,000 Treasure Valley Weight Loss Challenge being held by the Humphrey’s Diabetes Center in Boise. We had our initial weigh-in today. The damage: 242 pounds…ugh. Well, it’s all downhill from here. We have monthly weigh-ins starting in June and continuing through October. I’ll post updates.

I Want to be a Loser

I have known for years that I needed to lose some (or even a lot of) weight. For some reason though, pesky things like better health simply were not enough to motivate me to give it a serious run. However, I have now found my motivation: cold, hard, cash.

That’s right, the Treasure Valley is having it’s own version of The Biggest Loser. The fee is $50 to enter. The first weigh-in will be this weekend. Then there will be monthly weigh-ins for the next 6 months. The biggest loser (by percentage) will take home the grand prize of $3,000. I really want to win the big prize, but even if I “just” lose weight, it is well worth the $50 entry fee.

I’ll keep you posted with my progress here with each weigh-in.
