Jiggle Weight Loss Challenge


Weight Loss Challenge

I know I may lose some followers by doing this, but I am not going to participate in the weight loss challenge after all. I think it is a GREAT challenge and I look forward to seeing everyone's progress. However, I just feel like I am not doing this for the right reasons. I lost 3 pounds last week but all I did was stop drinking Diet Coke and drank only water. I did cheat and have about 3 Diet Cokes, but for the most part I drank about 3, 24oz bottles of water a day. So, I really feel like cutting out the DC was a good decision! It really cut out my desire to snack!!

But, back to why I am no longer participating - I do not have much more weight to lose. I am actually at the low end of the healthy range for my height and I feel like by participating and posting my weight would only discourage others. I will even go as far as to say I'm being shallow. I have ridiculous expectations - to weigh what I did before I got pregnant AND for my body to look the same. I am only about 4 lbs away from weighing the same, but my body looks no where near like what it did before I had Madi and it's not going to. I realize that now.

I wish all of you the best of luck and I know all of that sweat and soreness will pay off! I really hope no one looks down on me for this. I'm just being honest. I have some toning up to do but as far as losing weight goes I think I am happy with where I am.

Good for you! I'm glad that you aren't letting the idea of maybe losing some followers pressure you into doing something that you don't think you need to do. I don't even own a scale, so I have no idea how much I weigh, and plan to keep it that way.

I also have some toning to do. I have started doing yoga and zumba to help with that.

Good Luck! ♥

Way to go! Giving up DC is tough I am on day 14, and it has been tough. Keep up the good work :)

I think you are awesome! I am in the same place myself -- not sure if I should push it to keep loosing or be happy with where I'm at. It's not an easy call to make, but health is so much more important than weight.

Hey girl! No one's going to be mad at you - I think it's great that you're happy where you are! Toning up can really make you feel good, too. :)

Why would anyone be mad at you?!! You are at a weight you are comfy with and that is the best part!

I like the fact that you are being honest, and just for that you gained a new follower! Toning up is a great goal and I can't wait to see your progress!

Good luck!

I think it's good that you have a little system for yourself. Everyone is different, no one should look down on you. This is the system that works for you. Not all body types are the same. You should be proud that you are very close to your weight goal. I can't wait until I am close to mine, so I can just focus on the toning! Also, it's great that you drink a lot of water...I need to work on that. I am a diet coke drinker...It's so hard cutting it down! You inspired me to try though!

Good luck! :-)
