I'm totally amused

I can't remember if I mentioned this or not, but back in January our work started a Biggest Loser weight loss competition.  I weighed in with no intentions of being competitive with it--I just wanted to have the body fat percentage results.  There were three weigh-ins--one in January, one in early March, and one a few days ago.  After the last weigh-in, I knew that I did not stand a chance of placing as I had only dropped a couple of pounds and my body fat percentage had gone down a whopping 0.2%.  Big results, I tell ya...
Anyway, imagine my surprise today when I get an email notifying me that I placed 3rd.  I would like to say that this was a victory won by hard work and lots of pounds lost, but really it just shows that no one else was making much of an effort!  Either way though, I won a $100 gift card and I am very happy about that!  I think I shall use it to buy some super cute running gear for summer.  Perhaps one of those running skirts I've had my eye on...

  1. That's hysterical! And awesome! At least you'll put the gift card toward things that will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle...that's what it's about anyway!
