Whew! Thanking God for this day to have finally come.  I have posted a few blogs here recently about my "Lifestyle" change.  Today ended our 8-week weight loss challenge, and what a challenge it was.  The weeks were long, exercising were seemed to have been getting harder for me day-by-day.  So, I come into work today excited and ready to do my final weigh-in...I'm patiently awaiting 8:30a to come so I can go see our wellness coordinator to weigh-in.  Claire, instructed me to get on the scale and to my surprise, the number I saw on the scale monitor took me by surprise-and Claire too.  I had lost a total of 8lbs in the course of a week.  Claire and I was both shocked that I actually weighed again to make sure the scale was not lying.  At that point I knew "I had changed the game," see week 7, I had placed at #6, so when that 8lb popped up on the scale monitor, I knew I was going to be in the top three.

There were 24 challengers who was in challenge. All who had to select aliases names so we would not know who each other was. Each week we weighed in to see where we placed.  I started out at #13 weeks 1 and 2, and teeter tottered each week until at different spots until week 7.  So, as we attended the finale today Claire, passed out the certificates to all the challengers except for the top 3. I have never been so nervous in my life, oh and let me not mention anxiety kicked in. Yes, I was in the top three, really had no clue I was going to be there, I just geeked up myself up to think so.  When she called my name for 3rd place, I was so excited for my winnings ($20.00) and my certificate with my alias name on it "Sexy Weighs Less," Followed by my girl Jilleon in 2nd place ($60.00) and David 1st place ($400.00).  So, here is my stats on my weight loss: In 8 weeks, I have lost a total of 9.37 percent which gives me a total of 21.4lbs loss.  I am overly happy.  This has been a long time coming and I am not done....
