Green Tangerines style! The Green Tangerines Biggest Loser Challenge just ended(April 6, 2012). This was my 3rd time participating in the challenge. It started back in January. At that point, I was soooooo close to reaching my 100 lb. weight loss. I was super excited for the challenge and that extra push to get to my final goal weight. Who doesn't love a friendly competition? We had weekly weigh-ins. We had to send a photo of our feet on our scale(had to be the same scale each week). Kelly would post the weekly standings and we could see where we fell during the contest. It was just what I needed to keep going towards my goal.
As I said, the contest ended and we just found out today where we placed. I am happy to report that I took 3rd place in the Women's category. Sure, I would have loved to have won first place(and that cash prize) but I am really happy with 3rd place. This is my 3rd time participating in the GTBLC. This is my 1st time placing in the top 3. You can check out the winners here (click on gt biggest loser to the right under favorites)and read about their journey. Along with their stories, you will find their before and after photos. That old saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words" is really true. What a difference 12 weeks makes. I am proud of each one of the contestants who stuck with it and continued to lose weight each week.
