So I'm sure you already know (thanks Facebook) about the Biggest Loser Finale on Saturday... I won first place!  (Yay! Thank you so much for all of your positive comments & posts...very much appreciated... I've got them all saved in my email folder called "Fat to Fit" & will go back to read them when I'm felling down, or not motivated.

So this past week I lost 9lbs (I know, right?!?) for a total of 34 lbs or 17.34% in the competition.  I weighed in at 162lbs for a total of 94lbs lost)  But some of that weight loss was strategic weight loss (i.e.  dehydration, empty system, etc ~ so I'm going to leave my weight at what I weighed in at Jenny Craig the day before at: 167.8 lbs...which is amazing because I've not weighed that amount in a really long time!  Only 20-ish lbs to go!

Grand prize re-cap: I won $1000 cash, $1100 to Subway, a $2500 treadmill & a year's unlimited membership to VO2 Max (My fave fitness establishment ever!!!) So I'm pretty excited about moving ahead with the next phase.of my journey.

I won't be eating Jenny Craig food anymore.  I'll be Eating Clean.  I just realized how much better I did/felt when I ate clean foods this past week.  Jenny Craig was helpful for me because I was at a point where I felt like I didn't have enough time to prepare healthy meals & wasn't motivated enough to make the time.  So with Jenny Craig food, it was portioned properly & was readily available.  But now I've come far enough along that I want to fuel my body with foods that will give it the proper nutrition.  I will still meet with Jill once a month to weigh in & see how I'm doing on my own, & I can still buy any foods I'd like for as long as my program lasts (I think mine was 4 years including maintenance)... just in case I need to have something quick. (For example, I still have all of the food I bought for last week that I'll keep in the freezer for the nights I get home from work & just don't feel like making anything.

So it's been along journey & although at this point you might be inclined to say it's almost done, I realize now that it's a journey that will never be "done" per say... it's what my life is going to be forever.  And I'm really excited about that :)

Here are some pics from the finale.
