I WON!!!!!!!

I came in first place with a total weight loss of 86 pounds.

Wow, who would have thought that the past six months would have flown by this fast?

I am sad to say that this is my final blog for the FIT Challenge.

It has been an amazing journey.

This past week was good.

It's nice being on a little "vacation" from work.

I had a great Christmas with family and friends, but I've been so busy.

I have stuck to my diet, which was hard because of all the good food made and all of the Christmas cookies, candy etc.

This past week has went pretty well for me.

I have got the soreness of my feet under control and I got back in the gym.

I weighed myself and I was happy to see 446.

That is a total of 83 pounds lost so far.

We only have two weeks left of the challenge.

If you read my blog last week I had talked about how I was sent from work to the hospital because of how bad my feet were.

All the working and exercising, plus my first 5K, really put a beating on my feet.

This past week was kind of a bad week.

Like I have said in past weeks, my feet have been under a lot of stress due to long hours at work and working out.

I went to our medical center to ask them if they had any ideas on what to do to keep my feet from getting so sore.

This was a good past week.

Thanksgiving is always a great time.

I worked three days and had four days off.

On Thanksgiving I went out to my aunt's house and had dinner.

Things are getting back on track.

With starting my new job a few months ago, my schedule got a little tough.

Working a lot of overtime and being sore kept me from the gym. My body needed time to adjust to the new job.

Another week has passed by and things are still looking up.

I have been doing my daily walks and still eating right.

Work is going good and my body is pretty much used to the job now. I mean I still have sore feet after all that running around for eight hours.

Things are still going good in the FIT Challenge for me.

I have been working a lot of hours at work and continue to walk each day.

I walked all last month for my workouts so I could prepare for the 5K.

Another week has passed in the FIT Challenge and I'm still seeing results.

I couldn't be happier. I weighed Friday at 456 pounds, which means I am now down 73 pounds so far. I started a new job a month and a half ago and I have been working a lot.
