The Challenge is On!

Paul and I started a weight loss challenge January 6th to May 19th. As you all may know we have Megan's wedding May 28th and Dani's (my cousin) wedding in St. George June 5th. I am the Maid of Honor for both weddings & Paul is an groomsmen in both. We figured we better get our hineys in gear! For a little motivation, at the end of the 20 weeks, the person who lost the most percentage (to be fair) of weight gets to take $1,000 from our savings account and do what ever they want with it. This first week went great, we ate very good, didn't even cheat once :) I have been working out every morning for 40 min on the elliptical, every night for 50 min and with my weight trainer on friday nights. Paul has been working out when he can, but he has been very busy with work and working late hours. We had our first weigh in last night and my hard work paid off, I lost 5.6lbs, Paul lost 2 lbs which was great considering he only was able to work out one night. I am way above my goal! Wish me luck, I want that $1,000! :)
