Final Weigh In

Can you believe that it is already the final weigh in of this challenge? The time is going too fast lately. This has not been my best challenge as far as weight loss. I only lost 3.8 pounds total. Nothing to write home about, but better than nothing. I'm really thinking that I need to get on Weight Watchers or something come the first of the new year. Don't yell at me for saying this, but the next two weeks are pretty much going to be a wash. There is just too much going on with too much good food and drink. Yes, I have no willpower when it comes to the holidays. Hey, at least I'm being truthful with you here. Gotta get points for that!
Now, globetrotting! Here I did great. I wore my pedometer every day and logged my steps and milage every night. My totals are 530,664 steps for a total of 265.1 miles. I'm very proud of that. It helps that I like to walk. I haven't been doing a lot of running. I was letting my ankle and knee rest. Now, I'm ready to give it a try again.
I still haven't made a decision about the mini marathon. I'll use my two weeks off work to figure that out. So, that's my post. I can't wait to hear what the new challenge is going to be. Now, I'm going to read all your posts. I bet you all did great!


  1. A) 3.8 pounds down is GREAT!
    B) You killed it on the mileage. Holy cow.
    c) You should totally do the 1/2 marathon. Just saying!

  2. I second everything Heather wrote!

    We love you Nancy- you are one awesome hooker.

  3. Look at all those miles girl! 3.8 lbs lost is still a loss. I love your honesty about eating and drinking what you want during the holidays. I am hoping to eat what I want too and do a little extra on the treadmill or step it up at curves. It was a fun challenge and I am glad I did it.

  4. wow!! You did amazing on those miles!! That's not too shabby on the weightloss either. The holiday time is tough! You did great!!

  5. Wow great job on the miles! Hey 3.8 lbs during this time of year is fabulous! Enjoy the holidays!

  6. Keep up with the walking and enjoy the holiday! I bet you still lose some weight!!

  7. holy cow! you were really movin!! :) great job. :D

  8. Nancy, I'm so proud of you! Way to go on your loss AND your mileage! WOW!!!!

    It's funny because I was just standing in my kitchen washing dishes and thinking about small losses. They are frustrating, and the first thing that popped into my mind was that sometimes you have to change things up to shock your system. Maybe joining Weight Watchers is just what you need. I really, really love Weight Watchers, and I know it works. Think about it over the holidays and if you have any questions, you know I'm here!!

    On the 1/2 marathon, I think it would be AMAZING if you joined us. Just sayin' :)


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
