My boss counted up all the loot and it ended up being $183.80. That's a good haul. It would have been way less, but people kept gaining weight and you had to pay in a dollar per every pound gained. One week a girl gained 7.6 pounds...so that proved well for the Jelly Belly jar.
Sure the real prize is supposed to be "health" and whatnot. But I will freely admit that nothing motivates me like cold, hard cash, baby.
In case you haven't figured it out, YES, I won! :) Super excited. I ended up losing 8% of my total body weight. I went from 400.0 to 368.2. I'm in the 360s! Skipping dinner last night was totally fucking worth it, because this feels so awesome. People are proud of me. I'm proud of myself. I know I can keep going.
I dunno what's up with that picture, but that's not the point. The point is...I.FREAKING.WON. A weight loss contest, dude!
I plan on having a "good" time in California this weekend. Hopefully I won't spend all my newly acquired cash moneys. But if I do, it's okay. Because it's mine, I earned it :)
I already found a good way to get rid of some of those pesky single dollar bills...
I hope you all have an awesome weekend. And thanks for rooting me on! You made me believe in myself! That hardly ever happens, and it makes me feel all warm and weird. I love you guys. I love the support. I love the high hopes you guys have for me.
Today, I'm happy :)
