Today marked the finale of the Tri-City Regional Chamber's 100 day "Good Health is Good Business Challenge"

I had started my LCHF (Low-Carb/High-Fat) lifestyle (hate the word diet) almost 3 months before this challenge started and had already lost 29 pounds. Was I going in with a disadvantage? I was shooting to lose a total of 60 lbs, so really I was only half way to my goal and knew I could continue what I was doing. My BMI had started back in May at 33 (obese). I was shooting for getting my BMI below 25 (normal). At the Challenge weigh-in it was at 29.8 (top end of overweight). So, was it a disadvantage starting out having already lost 29 pounds or was I getting a running start by having already lost half the weight I wanted to lose?

No idea, yet, if I won the Chamber’s Challenge, that won’t be announced for a couple weeks but I think I have a good chance at one of the prizes. According to their measurements, I dropped 26.5 pounds in the last 100 days, dropped my BMI from 29.8 to 26.2, and took 6 inches off my waist. I still have 10 pounds to lose to get down to a BMI of 25, hoping to hit that number by this time in January. Thanksgiving and Christmas are such social occasions, but LCHF has taken away my cravings for sweets.
