Taking on the Edge Challenge to the End, Staying on Track

The last couple of weeks of the Edge Challenge seemed to go by in a flash and I was unsure how my total weight loss result would turn out.
At some weigh-ins, I was up a few pounds, while at others I was down a few. My final week included Zumba, a foundation class with various exercise stations and personal training time. Following that was the closing party and last weigh-in, which revealed that I lost 10 pounds throughout the challenge. I also lost 4 or 5 before it started. With that achievement, it was enough to get me back within my high school weight range.

After weigh-in, participants were treated to several different chicken caesar wraps and a free challenge finisher shirt. There were also
raffles for prizes in between trainers sharing their team members’ success to the others. Everyone had done an amazing job in reaching
their goals and I have to shout out a big congratulations on what they’ve accomplished!

Yesterday, I went out for dinner at a local diner and upon entering beyond a small lobby area, you are greeted by the sight of tempting cakes! I admit that I totally wanted a slice of this one, topped with strawberries, debating it through my salad order. But by the time I finished, I was feeling too stuffed anyway. It was a generous-sized healthy dish, making it easy to go guilt-free yet well-fed while following a diet.

A shirt I had on was slightly tighter when I first bought it and fitting more loosely now. That reminded me, I forgot to tell my trainer about another shirt I got last weekend. Just looking at the style, I wasn’t sure it would fit me; yet it did! Before paying for it, I was trying on some denim shorts just to see what I fit into at
this point. I definitely dropped at least one size. So I’ll have to tell him that during my next personal training session.
