10 Week Challenge Wrap Up

Wow I can't believe that 11 weeks ago I had a crazy idea to put together a challenge to get committed in 10 weeks. This whole thing completely blew my expectations out of the water. Not only did over 200 people join the group, but so many people connected, and made friends, and got motivated to move their bodies! I am so proud of everyone who participated and I am so pleased with how it went. Here is how it all went  :D

So at the beginning of the challenge I thew out there to hashtag #osj10weekchallenge in any pics you took for the challenge so that I can see them all, and I COMPLETELY spaced it until the #GoalOneGoRun challenge. I was SO EXCITED to see so many pics hashtaged! It was amazing. Here is a screen shot, but click on it to see all of them!

Seriously they are so inspirational. The group was a huge place to go for support, questions, ideas, inspiration, etc and was definitely somewhere I visited at least twice a day for a pick me up. Truth is, losing weight is tough, and it helps to have people on your side that are going through the same stuff. I love the little community we have all become. 

As for if I met my goals, the answer is no. But that's all me. I am working on getting a good schedule set and back on the right track. But some really awesome ladies DID meet their goals! Check out these rock stars!

I don't have a before and after pic yet because we are moving and we packed the camera! OOPS! So next week I will post them when things get back on schedule. Side note: I don't recommend going on vacation then trying to move 5 days later. My life is a little crazy right now :D

So you all might be wondering, what now? Will there be another challenge? My answer to that is YES but it will be different. I promise to have more info on it tomorrow!
