30 Pounds Lighter {6 Week Challenge Update}

So I was really bad about keeping up weekly with my progress over the 6 Week Challenge I took at the YMCA. I managed one update post the whole time and that was in the beginning. But I'm happy to say that I not only did well, I had the second highest percentage lost out of all of the participants (and the first highest was a male who lost 25+ pounds!). I was able to pass both my 10%, 25lbs & 30lbs marks, drop a pant size (almost two) and am heading towards my 1/2 way goal of 35lbs lost. So that makes me one happy person!

When I hit my 25lb mark I asked Tessa of Grin & Share It Photography to snap a picture of me at an event we attended to bid farewell to our dear friend, Natalie. We were all dressed up for the occasion and I felt amazing. Below is what I look like 25lbs lighter. I cannot wait to see what I look like at goal weight. The next 6 Week Challenge starts on January 20th and with a very generous Christmas gift I received I'll be signing up again! I managed to lose weight during the holidays and I plan on continuing just that into the new year.

After the holidays are over I'll be starting a 12 Week Weight Loss challenge on this blog and hope that you come join me if you want motivation and teamwork to help you over your weight loss hurdles. For more information (and to sign up) check out this post or email me at simmworksfamily (at) gmail.com. I will be accepting participants up until December 30th at 11:59pm. Teams will be paired up on December 31st and starting weights are due January 1st.

You go girl! It is extra challenging to lose weight over the holidays, so you should be very proud of yourself. Keep it up :)
