Yesterday was the finale for the Sisterhood challenge, Shrink for Good. It was seven weeks long and I lost 3.5 pounds. That's exactly one half pound per week. As always, I was hoping for more, but any loss is a good loss.
Now comes the fun part, the good part of the challenge. Let's see if I can remember this correctly. We are giving back to our community food banks according to our losses. There are 16 ounces to a pound and I lost 3.5 pounds, so I would be donating 56 ounces of food to my local food bank. I plan to donate more than that. Come back on Wednesday and see the things I will be donating. The Sisterhood is going to do a "Parade of Cans" at their website to show off what everyone is donating. I think that will be awesome to see.
The older I get, the more I realize how lucky I am and how important it is to give back to others. Be it with through the food bank, church, surprising people with little gifts or just a smile to that person on the street that might need it. My life is good and Shrink for Good was a great challenge. Thanks Sisters for another job well done!
