It's Official: I Am the Biggest Loser

Or at least the joint biggest loser. Yes, the weight loss contest at work has come to an end. For my final tally, I have lost 5% body fat in 10 weeks, which is good enough for a first place tie with the girl that organized the contest, who also lost 5%. Our office manager explored a variety of tiebreakers, including total pounds lost (we both lost 13), who lost a greater percentage of fat in relation to their starting percentage (I did), and who lost a greater percentage of pounds in relation to their starting weight (she did). There was really no way to call it one way or another, so we are going to split the winnings 50/50.

Now that the contest is over, I am certainly going to relax my diet a bit, but I feel like I have turned over a new leaf. I am planning to continue exercising regularly and watching what I eat. But for now, by way of celebration, I am overdue for my semi-annual Muddy Buddy binge.

Congrats.

How did you measure the body fat lost? Perhaps with all that candle making equipment at work, they have big tanks they can put you in to measure body fat?

Way to go. You looked like a pumpkin in the before picture. By the way my latest post will put your running "Ten Things" segment to shame so eat that (but not too much you don't want to look like a pumpkin again).

To paraphrase Michael Scott: "I don't care what the results of the contest say. You're all gigantic losers."

Now, the tough part...the Holidays.

First, we were coated in a thin wax shell, then sprinkled with cinnamon and vanilla...

No actually, we had a personal trainer come in to the office and pinch our doughy spots with calipers.
