Weekly Shrinking Jeans Check-In and FINAL shrinkvivor

Today is the final weigh in for the Shrinkvivor challenge over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. The winners of both the Entire Challenge as well as the exile island will be announced tomorrow, but in my book... WE ARE ALL WINNERS. We have won our HEALTH!!! We have won the ability to learn to track calories, exercise and in some cases we have been lucky enough to develop a new habit because of the challenges that we were issued during this event. I know I for one now get my 5 servings of fruits and vegetables when I didn't use to, and water really is my best friend. I wish I could say that I NEVER hit the drive thru, but I can tell you that since starting this challenge I have made MUCH BETTER CHOICES. Subway has become a family favorite...even for me and I HATE sandwiches. Its just as quick and easy as those other fast food places, but it is so much more healthy.

My weight today is 252.6lbs. that means that for this whole challenge I have lost 7.4lbs. I'll take it :) Especially since when my tribe was sent to Exile, I had a hard time getting back on the program... but I have a renewed faith in myself and my abilities to lose weight. I know that I will succeed in this journey... Heck I've lost 2 lbs since Monday when I got back on board (probably all water weight from my gallons of water each day).

Yesterday I did the 'butt buster' hill with a close friend of mine. I have talked myself out of doing that hill numerous times with her... but honestly, it wasn't that bad... I survived... and you why... because I am a survivor :)

Happy Journey everyone!!!


  1. Thanks Lissa :) You should try this hill with me... :)

  2. So proud of you for getting back into it! It makes you feel so much better to be in control of your choices and your health!! Congrats on being down over 7 pounds during this challenge!
