Wow!! I'm One of the Seven!!
Over at the Sisterhood of Shrinking Jeans the past 6 weeks have been spent in a challenge called the Shrinkvivor...think Biggest Loser mixed with Survivor! Like a good little shrinker I have been participating in this challenge with my only goal to lose weight...My goal was to lose 11.6 pounds so that I could finish the challenge weighing 195 pounds. (I started the challenge at 206.6). I knew that if I worked hard, followed along with the tips the Sisters gave up and used the accountability of the Tribe I could meet my goal... but not without hard work and dedication.
Yesterday was the next to the last week of the challenge and I not only met but exceeded my weight goal! I was so excited! I weighed in at 193.6 pounds and I was thrilled! I had finally met a goal I had set for one of these challenges! I couldn't have been happier...UNTIL tonight!
This challenge is a little different from a lot of the other challenges from the Sisterhood. This challenge is sponsored by numerous great sponsors; CLICK, Land's End, EA Sports, MiracleJeans, BornFit! The grand prize (the Ultimate Survivor) will win prizes from all of these sponsors...over $1000 of goodies! And
guess what??? I am in the running for these prizes! I was one of the seven women who
are SURVIVING! I could hardly believe Melissa's voice when I heard it on the vlog tonight! In fact, if I would not have seen my name written on that piece of paper I would not have believed it! I had to listen twice!! I shouted out that I was one of the seven to my hubby! He came out of his office to congratulate me and then I texted my fellow TribeMate, Mary and told her the news. Then I emailed the group to tell everyone in case they didn't hear yet! Not only did I make the final 7 but so did TribeMates Jill and Becca!! Three of the final 7 were from Tribe Green!
Wow! What a great group of women and now we are to create a vlog or a blog entry answering 5 questions and have people vote for us! So watch for shameless begging to commence...VOTE for me (or Becca W or Jill G or Tiffany Z or Staci Lee F or Colleen B) anytime from Saturday afternoon to Wednesday night! We have all done great over the past 6 weeks and we definitely deserve to win!! (Actually we have already won...better health and less weight)!!
Congrats to all of the Shrinkvivors!! And let's not forget those people that have been sent to Exile Island. There are great prizes for the ultimate shrinker in Exile Island, too! We can't forget them...the person with the biggest percentage of weight loss over in Exile Island will win that title! and lots of prizes, too!
That's all for tonight...I will have my vlog up tomorrow night or Saturday morning first thing, so check back in!!
