End of my Old Skool Challenge for Penny Brohn

Today was the end of my sponsored weightloss challenge. Read more about the challenge here.

Drumroll please.  Total lost at the end of the challenge: 11.7kg which in ‘old money’ is 25.8lbs or 1.8st.  I’m pleased with what I’ve lost but tinged with a little disappointment that I didn’t manage to lose more.

I’m surprised that my ‘eat less and do more’ strategy together with the introduction of  juicing into my diet strategy and a week of juicing retreat that I’ve not lost more.

However I am super excited that my weightloss graph has continued to go down, albeit in small increments.
