I had a pretty sizable lead going into the final weigh-in Thursday morning. Then I received the news that Rich had dropped 8 pounds in the final week. 8!
I pulled out the spreadsheet and with an 8 pound loss, he took the lead. My home weigh-in didn’t show any loss over the previous week, so I started to panic.
I needed the office scale to show about a 1 pound drop for me to maintain the lead. I usually weigh-in at 6:30 but I waited until about 8:45 to hop on the scale. 172.8. Exactly 1 pound down from the previous office weigh-in.
Rich retook the total weight lead but I was still atop the only column that counts, the total % loss.
13.69% – Winner!
Jess waited until about 2pm to post her weight and that extra time was enough to dehydrate her to a .03 advantage over CAP at 8.45%.
She took 3rd and Rich took second. Good thing the contest ended because Rich is a weight loss beast. Not sure how he dropped 8 pounds in the 12th week of a weight loss contest. Momentum was on his side.
After making it official, I proceeded to eat myself into a coma. 😛
I went a bit overboard Thursday and then again today but I’ll be back at the hard work tomorrow.
Back to my food coma…….
See you soon, Happy Dieting.
