The Weight Challenge – Final Update

I’m so excited! I could barely wait to share these final photos. I think you’ll agree that the Weight Challenge was a big success. I certainly held up my end of the challenge (that part was pretty easy) and I definitely have to say that Joe did a stellar job for his part.

Let’s take a look back:

Week 1 (back in January)

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

Week 5

Week 6

Week 7

Week 8

Week 9

and now:

Look at the difference:

Way to go, Joe!

Special thanks to our official photographer, Janene!  And of course, to Joe for being an awesome sport and for taking on this challenge. Way to go, my friend!

Final wrap up:


Weight gained: 27 lbs (as of pregnancy week 33)

Feeling: Huge, but good

Most noticeable difference: I can’t squeeze between the ellipticals at the gym anymore.

Best advice: Pay attention to getting good nutrition but also allow yourself to splurge a little.


Weight lost: Around 20 lbs

Feeling: Much better than before. “Not only have I lost weight, but I’ve also reapportioned weight (moved from gut to chest, etc.) Lean muscle has increased.”

Additional thoughts: The weight loss had a positive impact on his posture.

Please post any comments you’d like me to send to Joe and I’ll forward them to him.

    Wow. This is so much fun to see! Joe took this challenge seriously! I was at first wondering if there was some photo shop involved — LOL. Tell Joe once you have the baby he will really need to step up his game to keep up with you. 🙂

    It’s funny, I was just wondering whatever had happened with the weight loss challenge! I thought maybe Joe had given up — I’m happy to see that he did not! Way to go Joe — the final expresssion is awesome! Hope you’re doing well!
