Ladies and Gentlemen,
As much as I hate to admit it, but summer is drawing to a close. Here in Michigan, the trees are already beginning to turn colors, the nights are quite cool, and the days are warm, but not hot. Wait, did we ever get HOT weather this year?
With the end of summer comes the end of our challenge. You have all persisted for 13 weeks. Some weeks were rough for many of us. But we kept going and didn’t give up trying…at least not that I know of.
After 13 weeks, we have a found an ultimate Biggest Loser! The Loser/Winner for the overall challenge is Lina with an amazing 13.71 % lost!
I assigned each of you a number (that I will email you) and had Aaron use his amazing Excel/data management/analysis skills to make a neat picture for us to see of our progress. Check it out! It is kind of neat to see, that while we may not be happy with the literal number on the scale…the trend is downward. Ultimately, that is what counts.
Congratulations Lina and all for a great summer challenge!
I have heard from Matt McNutt, former contestant on The Biggest Loser, that he is planning on running a challenge on his website that will coincide with the next Season of The Biggest Loser. Check him out at http://www.matthewmcnutt.com for further information when he gets around to posting it. He usually has a pretty sweet prize package that goes with his challege and a ton more participants. I know I will be participating! In fact, it was with his challenge, this time last year that I started anew on my weight loss journey!
