No use prolonging the inevitable, right?
Great job to all my Losers! I’m so proud for all of us for sticking with it, even when the will power was low and the scale numbers were rising. I’m happy to say that most of us came away with smaller numbers after this long 8-week challenge. I know that in the end we all worked hard and we all had the commitment to keep stepping on that scale week after week and sending in the numbers. As a team, we lost a total of 172.9lb. That’s huge! That’s practically an entire Loser!
So, congratulations to Kacie! Our girl pulled some great numbers in the final two weeks to win the whole challenge. Rounding out the top 5 are Betsy, Faren, Lisa, Bernadette, and AnneMarie. Great job, ladies! I’d also like to say another congrats to our weekly winners, Betsy, Lisa, Faren, Kacie, Tiffany and Shannon.
And just one last thing before I give the final round-up: this challenge not only led to some fitter tweeps, but also some fabulous donations to Komen. Kacie and Betsy alone will rack up a total of $157.40 in donations for taking first and second place this week. So thank you to the Losers for working off those pounds, and THANK YOU to our donors for cheering us on and giving big to help us celebrate. I hope you all will go give our donors some thank you’s…AnneMarie, Kate, Betsy, Kandice, Kacie, Kristen (@kscincotta), Lauri (@60milegirl), and Laura (@ldavis1800). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
