Losing It: The Recap!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.



Ten weeks ago, Ashleigh, Mary, and I had this crazy Twitter conversation that resulted in the Losing It 10 competition. Maybe we were on a crazy post-Blissdom high or something.

I think we’ll be the first to admit that none of us lost a whole lot of weight. But it wasn’t all about that this time. I don’t feel dissatisfied with the results. Because I believe the three of us had a lot of heart-change when it comes to our weight. We saw the struggles we have. We faced demons. It’s been a wild ride for me.

And I don’t think we ever imagined that there would be other people who truly were inspired! I’ve been awestruck by the women who have taken the challenge and run with it. I can’t wait to see the percentages lost.

For me, I know I have to work out like crazy and practically starve myself to lose weight. It’s how I’ve always been. I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve messed up my body by losing and gaining, or I really eat more than I think I do, or I react badly to carbs. (Doing the South Beach Diet is the only time I’ve lost substantial weight.) I have to confess I weigh about the same as I did when we started this whole thing.


I am drinking a lot more water and MUCH less soda. I’ve done exercises I’d never thought possible–running and Shredding! I feel better. I’m eating almost no processed food.

I count that as success.

  1. Even though you didn't lose, it sounds like you made some great lifestyle changes. That's something to be proud of!

  2. I agree with Allison. The lifestyle changes are HUGE. My body is so much happier off all the processed foods.
    Thanks so much for starting this competition. It has truly changed my life.

  3. Isn't it always crazy how we do things thinking that one thing will be the result while God has completely different plans?
