My Final #knockoutthefat Update

Here we are at the end of the George Foreman Knock Out The Fat Weight Loss Challenge. My final weight is 179.4 and I have lost a total of 12.2 pounds! My goal for this challenge was to lose at least 10 pounds and I have exceeded that goal. My BMI went from 31 to 29. My waist went from 42 3/4 inches to 37 1/4 inches and my hips went from 45 1/2 inches to 43 1/2 inches!

Before

After

I have learned so much throughout this journey. I’ve learned to eat in moderation. I’ve learned that foods I think are healthy may have hidden calories in them. And I’ve learned that healthy foods can taste delicious!

I’ve loved using my George Foreman Grill to cook delicious food. I’ve enjoyed grilling vegetables, meats, paninis, and making pancakes all with one appliance that is easily portable.

I made some videos about my grill so check them out if you haven’t seen them yet:

I’m Learning To Eat Healthier #KnockOutTheFat challenge

This past week was by far the busiest week I have had all year. I ended up eating out a lot with family because my little sister was in town and I went to three birthday parties. I ended up gaining one pound this week and currently weigh 188.8 pounds and have a BMI of 30.5. I was really disappointed I didn’t  lose weight but I was also proud of myself. I was proud that I had made some good food choices throughout the week…

-At party #1 there was no cake. At  party #2 there was cake and I had two bites of the strawberry filling. At party #3 there were two cakes and I had half a piece of one of them. In the past I would have enjoyed large pieces of cake and at the party with two cakes I would have *had* to try both.

-At my brother’s party there were many appetizers and I didn’t eat any of them. For dinner we had lasagna and I wanted seconds of it because I was still hungry but I chose to eat seconds of the vegetables instead.

-When I went to the movies for the screening of Pirate’s of the Caribbean I would have normally ate a whole bag of candy. I allowed myself a handful of Reese’s Pieces.

As you can see, I ate some unhealthy foods this past week but I am learning to control my eating and practice moderation. That lesson alone was more valuable than the weight loss would have been because I am learning healthy eating habits that  will extend beyond this challenge.
