As you may or may not know, our little down does its own version of The Biggest Loser contest. Those entering have the opportunity to win cash and prizes while getting healthy along the way.
I joined this year, and the contest ended on April 2nd. We had a live showing, and it was pretty exciting. They showed our before picture and then we walked out as our "after," then we got weighed. They had taken our measurements previously, and all was entered into their computer. The winners were announced...and I had won second place in ladies! My total weight loss was 21.7 pounds and I lost a total of 14.25 inches. Not too shabby!
Well, a day or so later, I get a phone call from the people running the contest. Apparently there was a computer "glitch" and I did not get second place. As of right now, I can't even tell you what place I got because they keep talking in circles around me and I don't understand. They told me I could keep the prizes, though. Yay. I kind of liked bragging rights better. Oh well.
D says it doesn't matter what place I came in during the contest. The important thing is that I lost weight...the right way...and I am now in a better place as far as eating and exercise. I know he's right, it's just a bit of a let down.
