The Last Shrinkvivor Weigh In

As with all good things, they must come to an end. It is the last weigh in for the Shrinkvivor challenge and I am sad to see it come to an end. It has been a great journey and a successful one. I am hoping that even without the challenge and the weekly fitness and non-fitness challenges that I can keep up with the progress I have had this entire time.
It has been a great experience and I have "meet" some really awesome and inspiring women. I have pushed myself to try new things and to overcome my boundries. I have even got my husband thinking about living a healthier lifestyle, and in all honesty that might be the biggest reward of all. I have regained my excitement about working out and sweating and challenging myself and reaching new goals. I am no longer complacent, I am ready to push for the next milestone in my journey, to gain strength and stamina and prove to myself that I can accomplish anything I set my mind out to do. I am so glad that I signed up for and completed this challenge.
So now down to the numbers.............drum roll please.
Starting Weight: 213.8
Week 1: 213
Week 2: 210.2
Week 3: 206.6
Week 4: 205.8
Week 5: 204.8
Week6: 203.8
Week7: 202.6
Change: 1.2 lbs
Total Lost: 11.2 lbs
Another pound bites the dust, and I couldn't be more excited. 11.2 pounds gone in this challenge. Success every week both on the scale and off. Clothes fit better, I feel better, I can't wait to see what another 7 weeks will look like. The Shrinkvivor Challenge may be coming to an end, but the weight loss journey is only just starting.
This week the fitness challenge was to try something new. So I got out a new video that I hadn't tried before and made my first ever attempt at Plyo-pump. It was hard and it was super fun. It pushed me to do things that I feared and I loved the rush I got when I did it. I was also super tired with jello legs when I was done, but it is definitely a video that I will be doing again and again.
So how did all of you do? Check out the rest of the sisters and spread a little congratulations! Oh and while your at is make sure to vote for the ultimate Shrinkvivor!
