Can you believe our 12 week challenge is over???? I am still in denial, it seems like just yesterday Kim and I were in the office thinking about what we could do to help get us back on the weight loss bandwagon. Over the course of the last 12 weeks I have not only lost weight but I have gained so much more. One of the main things that I have re-learned is the fact that there are no short cuts around weight loss. I have lost a total of 10 pounds during the challenge which isn't half bad, I will take 10 pounds any day. When I look at myself I don't really see a difference, but looking at the scale and being 10 pounds lighter definitely makes me feel a lot better about myself.
Originally I thought that this would be the answer to all of my weight loss problems, and boy was I wrong. Like most people I was thinking that if I worked super hard during these past 12 weeks, I would wake up today and magically be 50 pounds lighter! (Extreme I know, but its the truth) With all of the information that I know, and all of the research that I have done over the past year, I know that this idea is crazy and unhealthy but to me it was worth a shot. The LOWS that I have experienced during the challenge have made me more motivated to get my act together. Almost every day I look at some of my friends on Facebook, Instagram, MyFitnessPal, and of course on the blogs that I stalk on a daily basis, and I still get the same answer to weight loss: you get out what you put in. This is such a simple solution but yet so many people struggle with it. I have definitely learned a lot through this challenge, and I hope that everyone that participated has too. Once I keep up my cardio regimen I am positive that I will start to see better results.
Kim and I just want to say thank-you for all of the support, and special thanks to everyone that participated, please let us know how you guys did!
