Default Some pretty amazing things

So, my Fiance (Larry) and I joined a weight loss challenge back in April here in Delaware. Basically, you paid $29 to join, go to weekly classes/weigh ins, and who ever loses the most percentage of body weight wins! Well, Larry won! He lost an amazing 10.927% body weight, which was 33 pounds. He looks amazing. He won $475 and he's going to have his picture in the Milford Beacon *woot*. When we get pictures back, I will post them. I'm so proud of him.

We're joining another challenge next Tuesday. We're already prepped and ready to go. He took $100 from the winnings and paid for the 1st month + joining fee at a new gym opening up close to home, and I'm totally excited for the new gym! Its a World Gym and its got 24/7 (or 1440 as they call it... 1440 minutes in a day...) access and all new equipment. Private bathrooms (10 full bath rooms) and a lounge/snack area. This is basically something unheard of in Delaware (its a small state. We don't get much around here.)

Since this is the second six months of the year, I am very excited to see where my weight loss is going to take me. I can see the difference in the pictures from the 15 pounds lost durring the challenge. All together I have lost 25 pounds this year, and I'm hoping to double that and lose another 50 pounds by the end of the year, because I want to be the weight thats on my licence (226... which was a lie even then... The lowest I have been in the last 5 years is 275... *sigh*). I'm turning 21 this year so when I go to renew my licence, I will have to get a new picture, and that is motivation enough! Haha.

Anyway, I guess I've gotten off track somewhere along the way. I best be getting back to work now *hugs to all who need them*
I am 21 years old.
I am getting married on March 14th, 2010
I want to lose weight so I can feel comfortable in my own skin on my wedding day.

Do not give up what you want most for what you want in that moment.

Woo! Go Larry!

Congratulations to you both; what a great accomplishment so far. And doing it together means it'll be easier to stick to it.

This is SO awesome. Seem like your DF is investing his winnings in the health of both of you. What a great thing.

Enjoy...glad you both did so well in the challenge.

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.
