And They're Off!

So today is the big day for the weight loss contest.  I will start with my info and then on to all the contestants.

My before picture was a little bit of a challenge from another contestant.  She said weight in in what Biggest Loser Contestants wear, well I cant wear that to work so I put on a tight tank and that's as good as it gets.

I will be doing Jillian Michaels Making the Cut.

And my starting weight is...

I am actually really happy with this number.  I didn't intentionally gain this week but I did eat what I wanted.  I have been weighing 240 for the last 2 months almost everyday.  So I am pleased with a little bit of a cushion.

Now...On to the other players.

So those are your Contestants for the 30lbs in 30 Days.  We represent 5 states and 2 countries.  I have to commend each of these women for playing along and taking a chance.  Trust me, I know it is hard to put your weight and photo online for others to see, but guess what, I really does help.

Wish us Luck!
