Holiday Hoedown Check-In: Week One

This really is a challenging time to start a challenge but I guess that's what's good about it. If we can get through the holidays in good shape we'll be way ahead of the typical holiday season when some estimates have us gaining as much as five to ten pounds in just four short weeks.

So far I've done far better than I have ever done during the week before Thanksgiving. I even started the week shredding and walking every day, but that regime fell by the wayside after four days when I felt more and more pressured by the many things I needed to do to prepare for the holiday weekend.

I ended up weighing 2.6 pounds less than I did last week at this time which is over a pound less than I weighed at the end of the Shrinkvivor challenge.

All in all I'm happy with these results although I feel somewhat intimidated about what the week will bring. I know my intentions are good. I just hope I discipline myself enough to survive the week unscathed by the Thanksgiving Thunder Thigh demon.


  1. 2.6 pounds is awesome. All I got was the .6! You are still doing great and I am so proud of you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. I hope you are having a fabulous Thanksgiving!!


  3. Great job on the loss last week Mary! Can't wait to see how you do with this rocked the last one!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
