Biggest Loser Competition

A while back I told you guys about a competition that we were doing at work. In an effort to try and get healthy, my company decided to have our very own Biggest Loser. It ran for 12 weeks and the top 3 people with the biggest percentage of weight loss at the end would win some money.

Well, today was our final weigh in. And, I got 2nd place!!! I was pretty excited about this until I found out that I only missed 1st place by .35%!!! Are you kidding me? Less than a percent? Ughh! I was a little mad at myself. Especially since the guy who won wasn't even an employee here. His wife is, and pretty much all of us thought it was unfair from the beginning. Just think, if he wouldn't have been able to do the competition, I would have won the whole thing!!!

Okay, enough ranting. I do however have something to be proud of! Throughout the duration of this contest, I have lost 21 lbs! And I feel great and I can't wait to keep losing more. And the best part...I am walking away with a quick $200 just for losing some weight! I really can't complain too much about that.

And of course me being a girl and being the person that I am, I pretty much already have this money spent. On clothes of course, haha! I have been wanting to buy myself a twist wrap dress, which is the same dress I had my bridesmaids wear. The main reason that I want one is because we already have two weddings to go to this summer and I need something to wear, so why not just get this dress and then twist/wrap it into a different style for each different wedding?


This is the color that I want it in as well. Not too bright and not too pale! It's perfect!! And if you know me, you know that I wouldn't have picked any other color! And I should be able to reward myself with something that I feel good in right? 

What would you buy if you had won the $200 that I did? Would you spoil yourself? Or would you use it for something practical?



  1. That's so great!! 21 pounds is quite an accomplishment - be proud of second place! And you should totally treat yourself to a great new dress!

  2. Wow congrats on losing the weight! And definitely treat yourself to something special! You will feel awesome rocking it!

  3. That's awesome! Congrats! Totally unfair that that guy was able to enter the contest! We just found out the result of ours and 3 guys won. They lost 13%! Which is insane! I did the math and if I lost 13% I would have to lose over 20 lbs in 6 WEEKS! Ridiculous! Glad you won though. Go buy the dress. I have a black one and can't wait to wear it this summer!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
