Healthy You Challenge Check In #11

I know, I know. You're thinking:

What the hell happened to weeks 8, 9, and 10?!?

Well to sum it up. Week 8 was good. Weeks 9 and 10 were bad, bad, bad, alcohol drenched guacamole filled poor decisions. Oh, and I went on vacation with my old college buddies:

And my vacation diet was beer and avocado salad.

But I'm back. I'm on plan. I feel awesome. And I finally have a real, live weigh in to report. Drumroll, please:

Starting Weight (May 13, 2009): 320
Current Weight: 307.5

Total Weight Lost: 12.5 lbs.

Losing twelve pounds in eleven weeks is totally weak sauce, but I don't know if I gained some back during my two week lag or if I just wasn't ever pushing myself as good as I did last year. But I'm not going to dwell on that. I know my exact weight, and I can only chart my progress from here.

And I get my first real HYC badge weight loss badge!

I'll post progress photos at fifteen pounds. So you'll have to wait a little bit longer, but hopefully it won't be too long!

At least you didn't gain any weight! Love the pics and keep up the great work! Glad to see that you are back on track and going strong!

Great to see you back, and doing so well! One pound a week is nothing to sneeze at... and it could have gone in the other direction! Congrats!

I'm glad your back! I'm also losing on average 1lb a week, but hey we are still losing right!? haha

Woohoo! Congrats on the bling and the great loss. When I first started out, I would have killed to be able to lose that quickly. I averaged about one pound a MONTH! So you are doing great and it's always good to enjoy vacation and time with friends.
