On August 1, 2012, Fit Camp, launched a 60-day Weight Loss Challenge. Considering that many of the Fit Campers are mamas, the goal that I set for
this challenge is for participants to collectively lose the weight of a mini van.
From the research I've done, this equates to approximately 4,000 lbs.
I'd like the van to be a symbol of all those mamas out there taking
time for themselves to shed the mini van/soccer mom persona to re-find
their sexy goddess. For those of you like me, who do not have children,
let it be a reminder that now is the time for us to get our weight and
fitness level under control. Especially before life brings additional
obligations....and gawd help us mini vans! : )
Fit Campers participating in the challenge are logging their weights into a spreadsheet every Wednesday. Once the weights are entered, I compare the current week to the previous week and calculate the each persons gain or loss for the week. I then add everyones gains and losses together to calculate the net loss for group. Here are our results so far:
Week 1 - 943.1 pounds lost Week 2 - 435.8 pounds lost Week 3 - 260 pounds lost Week 4 - 232.6 pounds lost Week 5 - 137.1 pounds lost Week 6 - 251.2 pounds lost Week 7 - 188.8 pounds lost Week 8 - 152.2 pounds lost Final Weigh-in - 159.3 pounds lost For a total of 2,760.1 pounds lost or 69% of goal! GO TEAM!!
