So, I am now 13 weeks into my personal challenge and also we've made it through the 10 weeks of the Biggest Winner competition which is part of the Las Vegas Corporate Challenge. I certainly had hoped that I could report more progress, but some was made. OK, I did lose 25 lbs. for the Biggest Winner competition. According to their scale, I weighed in at 438 lbs. and weighed out at 413 lbs. I am happy with that, but one of my teammates left me in the dust losing an impressive 41 lbs. over the competition - Well Done Glen!!!!
I would like to believe the scale as accurate, but my weight loss is measured against my personal scale at the house. When I got home, I weighed myself and it showed 416 lbs. I'll take it. that means at the halfway point of my personal 6 month challenge I have lost 42 lbs. Now I just need to follow through and keep losing more weight. In the past, once the competition has ended I've reverted to bad eating habits. I won't allow myself to do that any more.
On the cycling front, 9 days into the National Bike Challenge I have gotten in 9 rides. Last night's was a late ride. I realized at 9:00 pm that I had yet to ride, so I changed and headed out for a short ride. Now, I will be honest here and admit that all of my rides have been short so far, but the important thing is that I am riding.
