DRUMROLL PLEASE.................

I don't know what to say other than a big HUGE heartfelt congratulations to Michelle who totally and completely rocked this challenge! She has accomplished some major milestones during this time, one of which was recently acheiving her 10% keychain at her Weight Watchers meeting. She is a mighty force to be reckoned with you guys!


So I have mentioned a few times that I was going to try to round up a prize for our winner! Well I am happy to say that I've got one! Well, it's on it's way to me in the mail and not in hand yet, so it may be a week or so before I have it to send along to Michelle, but I am handing over the prize that I was lucky to win on Kristen's December Contest :-D It includes the new Weight Watcher Cookbook (I think it's Momentum inspired) and a new Weight Watchers POINTS calculator. We will see what other goodies are in there when it comes, but for now, those are the big ticket items :-D It's not the big $250,000 prize that the "Biggest Loser" gets, but it is a prize nontheless and Michelle, you deserve something for doing so amazingly well! I wish I had more and could reward some of the other challengers who kicked butt too! Maybe the next "Season" of the challenge will bring more donated prizes, ya never know! :-D


OH and of those left still standing, we have collectively lost a total of 170.10 lbs! SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS! Isn't that GREAT!!!! I'm pretty sure we can blow that out of the water in our next round, don't you??!


One other thing that I didn't mention on here, but I did mention over on my blog is that I had been approached to do a radio interview about our challenge and it will mostly likely be aired this coming Sunday. That's pretty exciting eh! It can be heard from their website on the "listen live" button on the top right and I will post the specific time when I hear back from them. During the interview, he asked me how much weight I would guess that the group had lost and I was way off it looks like. I think I answered around 130ish but I can't quite remember (I was too busy trying not to sound like a dork! :-D)


I hope that the interview will give our next group of challengers a little extra "kick in the pants" to know that "they are watching us" in the same kind of way we watch the show on TV, in a sense!


Details on the next challenge will be announced in the next week or so, so keep your eyes peeled. What I can tell you is that there will be a new "twist" to our second "Season."


Oh and I wanted to thank you all for hanging in there and "fessing up" to your weigh-ins even though it was sometimes hard to do when the results were not great. That is truly such an important part to being successful overall. I felt that it was important that those who stuck with the challenge through to the last few weeks followed through with it because I think it will help you move forward into the new year and a new challenge. If you're gutsy enough, that is!
