Congrats PhotoChick! That was really fast!
I can't believe this is challenge 25 already, that's 125 lbs lost by the winners alone, that's a person.

SW: 230.5
CW: 230.5
GW: 225.5 (so, so close to my first mini goal)

Ooh, congrats PhotoChick!

Quillie - I started these challenges at #5 (in April), and it's fun to look back and see where I started! Although I have yet to win one, which may be some kind of a record.

I have to say that these challenges have been the best for helping me to see actual progress. I'm not trying to win any speed records in losing, but it is sometimes frustrating to look at my daily weight graph and see all the ups and downs.

But every time I start a new challenge, I can see where my goal weight is lower than the time before - even if just by a little. It's a nice little boost.

And 5# is so achievable, too, so that helps a lot.

Thanks for starting the challenges, Jessica!

Wow, I am just heading into weight territory that seems so foreign ! Not that I haven't been there, it's just been a long time. Size 12 has to be here somewhere <looking around >

Oh, I didn't start the challenges (although I wish I could take credit for that ). I just meant that my first challenge was #5, and it's fun to see how far I've come from there.

I feel the same way about them as you do, though. I think these challenges and the Biggest Loser challenges have been vital to my weight loss success thus far.

So thanks to all you lovelies, basically!
