LoseAMarathon Weekly Weigh-In

This week's weigh-in didn't go quite as planned for me yesterday... and it's totally my own fault.  I did really well all week. I was -4 lbs on Friday and then the weekend hit. We celebrated at two weddings and continued at an after-party. Aw-man, I had way too much fun beer and liquid calories always hibernate in my body. So by time I weighed in on Monday morning, I was back up to where I started the week. Grrrr.  Official weigh-in was -0.2 lbs. I have some ground to make up this week.

The Marathon Weight Loss Challenge closed registration yesterday with 965 participants. I hope everyone sees the journey through and topple some personal goals.  If you didn't register in time, you can still follow the challenge (and track your weight on your own).  It will obviously be my focus for the summer.  Those fall half-marathons (five!) have no idea what's coming from this girl...

Reminder: Weigh-ins are due before midnight every Monday (email me your full name & weight).  If you miss it the deadline, please just wait until the next week to report.

Each week I want to recognize the top performers on the scale.  Losing weight is a tough task, so I am in awe at how these participants attacked the challenge and LOST BIG in week one. Congratulations!
