AND THE WINNER IS ...
Wow, these past 2 months have flown by! Can't believe it's summer and time to don a bathing suit to take a dip in a lake or swimming pool.
We had 4 competitors in our Beach Body Challenge. It was a tight race between the top 3 spots...lol with me lagging way behind in last place.
Cheryl: Started at 149...ended up at 146
Al: Started at 169...ended up at 164
Desiree: Started at 142...ended up at 136
Anthony: Started at 214...ended up at 209
DESIREE WINS WITH A WEIGHT LOSS OF 6 LBS.!!
Luckily for Desiree, the agony she went through following her dental surgery (pain & nausea), paid off big time. LOL...but definitely not a way I would recommend for fast weight loss!
Congratulations Desiree ...I'll be buying your flip flops tomorrow :)
Kudos to Al and Anthony for a job well done and being tied in 2nd place!
THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:
I am challenging everyone to get out their swimsuits and have a great summer no matter what! Just for the record...just because I held a beach body challenge, it doesn't mean that I expect everyone to have a sports illustrated bikini body. I just hope that everyone can feel comfortable enough in their own body to get out and enjoy life to it's fullest.
I came across this motto; it really struck a cord with me and got me thinking of body image. Not so much what society says we should look like, but how I see my own body. More on this topic in next week's blog :)
LOL...I figure we should all get together and have a party to celebrate the end of suck it in season...will you join me for a piece of cake in Sept.?
NEXT WEEK'S BLOG: Body Image
