I Am One Of The Big Losers

Results have been posted and I am #4 this week losing 1.6% of my body weight. The winner lost 2.7% and #12 lost .5%. Only the top 12 were posted so it seems to me if there were 71 in the contest at the beginning and #12 only lost .5% then it won't be long until I win a week if I stay the course.

That's the plan.

    1. Thank you Grace. I just have to keep things in perspective and realize I can't expect that every week but it sure is nice when it does happen. Take care.

    1. It will be even more awesome when I win a week! At least I would get my $25 entry fee back plus some money to waste on myself. Take care.

    1. Thank you. I feel pretty good about my progress. I would really like to win my $25 entry fee back and a little extra just to spend it on what I want. Take care.

    1. There were 71 people originally and each paid a $25 entry fee. That was enough to award a $70 weekly prize and a $105 prize for total lost and there was also a second place at the end that won some money. The amount of the prizes is determined by how many sign up. It's is a good and motivational program if one doesn't feel pressured or get stressed out about it. We have to know ourselves and what we can deal with. Take care.

  7. So wonderful, Myra! I lost some of my weight during a $10 contest. It made me spend 8 weeks of concerted effort to get rid of bad habits and consistently eat better. It has made a huge difference ever since. :D

    1. These contests work for some and are threatening to others. I am enjoying it and plan to continue. I have more of a challenge with inactivity than eating for the most part. Quilting is not a real calorie burner! Take care.

  8. Yes, the slow and steady so often wins the race in the end. It's what we must do to stay on track and keep it that way for good. Our health is the true reward. You know this, so it will all work out.

    1. When we finally accept that this is for life and do what's necessary to achieve our goals, it does work out. Getting it pounded into our heads is the hard part. Take care.
