Well, the results are in.

Before
28 pounds later...
So there you have it, you got before and after pictures. I had no idea that I really even needed to loose weight that bad...but now I am SO happy that I did. Oh, and the 500 dollars from WINNING the competition is kinda a plus too!! Yes, you heard me right, I actually won! I beat the other girl just barely. She lost 17.22% body weight and I lost 17.5%!!!!! It came to literally just one pound. I never imagined starting this competition that I would actually come out THE BIGGEST LOOSER out of 37 people!!! I really started it to just make myself aware of my eating habits, loose a little weight, and have a little motivation to stick with it. Let me tell you, the competitiveness in me really came out these past 8 weeks. I think I had more fun trying to beat other people than actually loosing the weight. (great side effect right?) Thanks so much for your motivation and tips, it helped to have people rooting for me. And especially thanks to Angela for heading it up and putting all her time in for us. YAY! Now Joseph, Heidi needs to start planning her trip out here b/c I really won so that she would come out here this summer!!! I can't wait to see you and Alex, and meet Rebekah, Heidi!!! Amber, you better come join in with the clan, we need to meet baby Harrison! It'll be a party! Ang?? You in too??

Holy Crap!!! Pardon my language but I am in shock! If you had told me you were planning on losing 28 lbs I would have said you were psychotic, but you look awesome! After Emmett comes you can be my personal trainer and fitness coach if you want. I have about double your amount to lose!

Kamie said...

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats to winning. But HOLY COW you look hot girl! That is so great. It motivates me to work harder too!

Melissa said...

Winning is such a good feeling, but its got to feel sooo much better to look so good! The before and afters are amazing, Sheila! Way to go! (and I agree with Lori, I would of been shocked to hear you wanted to loose almost 30 pounds!)

Holly said...

You look great! Way to go winning that competition!

Sarah Scott said...

Holy Crap! Check you out! I had forgotten that you were doing the Biggest Loser. I'm so proud of you! I remember my own weight loss battle, and I'm proud now to say that I lost 33 pounds before I got pregnant and began gaining it all back, but I bet that since I'm still exercising through the pregnancy I'll be able to drop the weight real easily afterwards. Or at least I hope so. You just look so fantastic. I'm always happy for people who embark on weight loss and getting healthier, I know how hard it can be to just get started. So good for you!!!!

WOW Sheila! You look absolutely amazing.
I'm so happy you won!
You have really motivated me to lose the last few since the twins. It's just so hard, but I guess I should just quit whining and do it.
And hopefully, when I do, I will look as hot as you because WOW!

Please please please spend the money on frivolous things like new clothes and pedicures and whatever you want..you earned it!!!

Angela said...

OH MY GOODNESS! Those pictures are AWESOME!! I'm so glad you took those! Sometimes it's hard to tell that you really lost all that weight because you live with yourself and look at yourself everyday, so it's a slow change... but now you can see that you really look different and AMAZING! I'm so proud of you! Now it's your turn to head up a competition. Just don't start it until Sep. 1st or so. =)

And I totally wish I could make that trip with those girls! Someday I will... Love you, and congrats again!
