Week 4 Challene Results

Congrats Susan at Stop Spending All Our Precious Time. Susan lost 2.4% this week! WOOOO! Way to go girl, losing this amount and during Thanksgiving? This is fantastic!!!

This week we lost 29.7lb total as a group, bringing us to a toal group loss of 232.4lbs! This isn't to bad considering it was Thanksgiving week, but I think as a goal for next week we should aim to double this number. Let's set a goal for 60lb loss next week, that is just a little over 1lb/per person- we got this!

And because we are in week 4 of 7 I thought I would share the Top 6 Challengers and their %, congrats ladies!

1) Kellie- Something About Kellie with a 6.3% total loss
Stephanie- Dreams of Skinny High Heels with a 5.4% total loss
Angela- Repair and Renovation with a 4.6% total loss
Susan- Stop Spending our Precious with a 4.5% total loss
Gilly- Something something something fat chick with a 4.2% total loss
Breanne- Lady Lap Band with a 4.1% total loss!

You go girls- start thinking about where you want those gift cards to!

My week 4 weigh in and BIG news!

Down 1lb. I'll take it during thanksgiving, but I must say I am still a tad disappointed. On Wednesday I had hit a new decade, I saw 169.8 on my scale and I was so happy, but that was quick-lived. It will come back soon, I know it will!
Thank you everyone for all of your sweet messages on my engagement pictures. I really am pleased with how they came out, and I love comparing them to past pictures.
I have BIG news! So remember how my fiance Rick decided he wanted to have WLS? Well Friday he got the call with his SURGERY DATE! He is going to be getting BANDED on January 21st! By the same surgeon as me and everything. I am so freakin excited for him. He finished his 4 week nutrition classes tonight, and is done with all of his pre-op testing until his final lab work and EKG 2 weeks before surgery! Wahooo!
We lost Internet at our house last night, so I am still working on this weeks graph, I will post it later tonight! xxoo

Holiday Challenge Week 3 Results

*Click picture to make big*

Here it is challengers-No one guessed the winner this week, although I didn't give you much time!

Let's all congratulate Kellie from Something about Kellie for losing a whopping 4% this week!! Awesome job chicka!

As a group we lost 70.5lbs, it wasn't one of the best weeks overall but in Biggest Loser trend the 3rd week is always one of the worst! Let's kick it up this week and try to break through for a 100lb next week! I know we can do it! We are at a total loss of 203.4lbs! WAHHOOO!

Week 3 Challenge

Hey Ladies-

I wanted to let everyone know I am working on the week 3 chart for the holiday challenge, but thought we could play the guessing game in the mean time!

This week's winner lost an amazing 4%, lets see if you know who it is:
  • She's from Australia
  • She has 2 Children
  • She was just banded THIS MONTH!
  • Her band is name Portia

Any Guesses?? Stayed tuned for the answer!

Fill Update: I went for it!! When I told my nurse practitioner all that I've been able to eat her mouth dropped! She said enough of these baby .1 fills and gave me a big girl fill of .5! EEEEK! I'm nervous, but hopefully it gives me the kick I need. She was also a little nervous as to why I had sudden overnight looseness so she ordered a barium swallow for 12/27 just to make sure everything is OK!

Wedding Update: I have some exciting news- my wedding dress is in!!! I ordered it over 5 months ago, so the fact that it is finally here is super exciting! I ordered it a size smaller then what I was measured for in June, and tomorrow is the day to see if it fits! I have 6 more months to make that baby fit! Everyone cross your fingers for me!

Also, this Saturday my mom is coming to visit and we're going to do my cake tasting AND visiting a florist!! I'm so excited that everything is coming together! Let's hope I am loose enough to eat some cake, I think i have a valid excuse!

We got our engagement pictures on Friday. I posted all 250 to facebook, so if we're friends I'm sure you saw them! I will post the contenders for our Save the Dates, Newspaper announcement and Christmas Cards later this week!

Hope all is well! xxoo

Happy Sunday!

Well looky who lost all her bloated lbs from last week! WAHOOOO! I'm now only .2lb heavier then when I started the challenge. My (.) is due for a visit this week so I'm sure that should help get these pesky lbs off.

I'm having a little dilemma- I have been super loose lately and have a fill scheduled for tomorrow, but with my (.) coming I am really tight right now. Should I just go ahead and get the fill since I've been so loosey goosey lately or wait till my appointment on the 12/27 and get it then?

Thank god for that starbux gift card as I've been living on skinny vanilla lattes lately. So yum!
Alrighty, I think I'm going to make some of Eggface's Cheesy Bites. If you haven't made these before I highly recommend them, they are super easy and delish!

Challengers: don't forget to send me your weights!!! xxoo

Me Speechless? Doesn't happen....well EVER!

I just received a package in the mail...and who is it from?? MY CHALLENGERS!
Are you guys serious?!? This is one of the most thoughtful things that has ever been done for me! And to think, its all for doing something I LOVE!

  • I love organizing these challenges, and seeing how well everyone does every time.
  • I love the drama that these challenges bring
  • I love stalking all your hot asses for weights when you forget
  • I love every minute of this!
And to be honest, I couldn't do any of this without you guys! Seriously! You guys catch any mistakes that I make so that this can be an honest and fair competition. You guys give me helpful hints and advice on how things can run more smoothly. And I can't forget Joey- I let her hack into my blog and make it 'challenge friendly' Like for realz how much easier is it now that we have a challenge tab?? I know it's so much easier for me, and it couldn't have been done without Joey!
I love you all so much, and I appreciate that you all did this for me. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! Now get all your sexy bums to Boston- Starbucks is on me!!

Any guesses? Stay tuned for this week's magical bandster!

Challengers- I hope your scale doesn't do to you what mine did to me!

YUP- for those of you who are keeping track, thats a 3lb GAIN this week! Not the right direction, and nope its not my time of the month either!

Let's see, could I blame it on the foot long quarter lb chili cheese hot dog I got at Sonic on Tuesday night? Or the 4 pieces of challah bread and 3 potato latkes with sour cream I ate Friday night? How about the 5 buffalo chicken tenders with bleu chesse I ate last night? As you can see I deserve this gain- and it's the kick in the ass I needed! I ordered 2 canisters of Click protein powder on amazon the other night and will be sticking to those for breakfast this week. Let's hope it helps!

Still missing quite a few weights- don't forget to send them in! xxoo
