I'm jazzed. I've bet $100 (now sitting in a special PayPal account) that I'll lose 10 pounds by April 1st.
Two of my friends are competing against me. Well, actually we're competing against ourselves; we'll all get our money back if we lose the 10 pounds.
Last time I posted about this I weighed 142.6, and was trying to maintain that until the bet started, but lo and behold I lost two pounds in the interim! I have no idea how. So I had to start at 140.6. And today, *simper*, I am proud to say I'm at 140 even. 9.4 pounds to go...
The others started off with a bang, losing almost a pound the first day, and I got a little worried, but both of them had an off day yesterday, so I think I'm actually ahead now. I can't believe it! I was hoping to have some of that fluffy watery fat to melt off early on, but apparently that all went back when I had the flu.
I should make a progress graph for us! That would be fun.
I highly recommend this approach--I've never been so motivated.
[BTW, that's a picture of the scale I'm using, it's an Omron body fat measuring scale. I like it a lot.]
