GAG Challenge Before & After Pictures & Final Exam

And here they are. The much anticipated before and after pictures from the GAG challenge. I don't see a whole lot. I've basically lost 20.4 lbs. That's pretty good for a 16 week challenge. I cannot complain. It could have been better had I not "goofed" off at the end. It's very hard this time of year but I'm glad I did what I did these previous 16 weeks to help me get through this holiday time. I really had a fun time and I "met" a lot of great women! Thanks so much Sheila for starting this challenge. And thank you to Christine and Sue for taking over!!! I can't wait for another one!!!

Darn me and closing my eyes!!! Oh well!!!!

Why did I join GAG and how am I doing today? Well I needed a jump start. I was going nowhere fast and tired of being in the 170's and flirting with the 160's. I needed something to help keep me on track. Something to hold me accountable! And that is exactly what I found in GAG. It helped me to stay on track. It helped me to learn what i need to accomplish to get to goal. And most of all, it's taught me this is a learning process. No one is 100% all the time. We all make mistakes. But we learn from them! I'm so happy with where I am now compared to where I was 16 weeks ago. Could I have been better? Absolutely! Am I upset with what I accomplished? HELL NO! I lost 20.4 lbs. I am now firmly in the 150's and at my all time low ever since high school. The only thing I am asking now is when/where is the next challenge to propel me into goal!!!! =D

:D I felt the same about my before/after comparisons so I didn't put them side by side, lol. I love your new hair and your front shot you can tell your belly is firming up. 20 lbs is gone, I am sure you can feel it and definately have got looser clothes. Congrats on your hard work and your GREAT scale verdict.
