This picture is me stirring the hot chocolate that was made for the kids' Christmas program at the elementary school. I had a similar shot taken last year. You can see it here.
I had fun this challenge even though I did not end up with any points for weight loss or loss of inches. My end measurements were slightly down in some and slightly up in others which could just be how I measured. Not enough to make a real difference. And wouldn't you know it the day after the challenge ended my weight went down a full pound and a half! Maybe after the holidays are done I can finally get serious and lose that last 5 pounds again and keep it off this time.

Here I am in the new exercise clothes my husband bought me for Christmas. After taking this picture I decided the shirt was a little too small and ended up exchanging it for the next size up which still looks good but is a bit more comfortable and modest. Unfortunately they were all out of that fun hot pink color and I had to settle for white. But it looks good and feels good so I'm OK with that.
