Since the beginning of January I've been attending a class called "Women on Weights." The instructor is a personal trainer, she gives you advice and motivation on how to lose weight and get fit. (And kicks your trash 2 times a week :) As I joined the class they were starting to do a "Commit to be fit Challenge," she sends you a book full of recipes and direction on how to accomplish this challenge. We all put in $10, and kept a chart up at class that we got points on keeping a food journal, attending class and exercising outside of class. She of course weighed us, got our body fat percentage, and measured us. Who ever was the "biggest loser" after 12 weeks got the money. I've really wanted to get this baby weight off,( I know this might make some people mad) but I've never had to count calories. I just exercise and the weight comes off. We'll now that I've had 3 kids my body has changed, I'm more like the rest of the population. So I've been keeping track of what I eat, attending my Women on Weights Class and working out everyday. This challenge was 12 weeks long, and our weigh in was today.

Guess what......I WON!

I lost 10lbs and went down 4% in body fat!

-Plus I lost 3/4 of an inch around my neck
-3 inches around my chest
-2 1/2 inches around my waist
-1/2 inch around my arms
-1 inch around my hips
-3/4 inch around my thighs
-1/2 inch around my calves

Plus, I got the $$$$$, $140.00 to be exact. :)

Now, I'm still not where I want to be. I think I have about 5-10 more pounds to go, but this was a huge boost in my motivation, that I can accomplish this. Did I also mention how much the ladies in this class boost you up! They were so happy and excited for me, nothing but praise and hugs. I LOVE this class! The instructor, Keena, is such a great person full of encouragement and motivation. So to sum it up, life is good. :)
