I'm hiding my head in shame.  I gained 1 pound.  I hate a set back.  It's my own fault … although I'd like to blame it on the eating of bacon that went into the making of the video below.

Here are this weeks weigh-in and measurement results:

  • 022-2 BMI: 24.7 (normal) 26.62
  • Weight: 157.6 lbs 170.6 lbs
  • Chest: 38.5" 39"
  • Waist: 36" 40"
  • Hips: 39.50" 41"
  • Overall:  Down 13 lbs and 6"

(red denotes initial measurements and weight)

My measurements stayed the same thankfully.  One the plus side, I did buy a cocktail dress in a size 8 for the first time in many, many years.  I was wearing a size 12 when I started this challenge, so I'm happy with that.  I have to find the positive in this, right!   Now to get that pesky pound back off again.

Instead of putting together a new recipe this week, I decided to put together a little video showing you the difference between frying and grilling bacon.  See I told you it was the testing of bacon that went into the making of this video that was my downfall this week. 

Disclosure: I am one of 10 Brand Ambassadors in the George Foreman Knock out the Fat Weight Loss Challenge. I was sent a George Foreman Grill for my participation in this challenge and will be compensated for my time at the end of the 90 days.

You are doing an amazing job! Could your 1 lb be either water weight or added muscle? I am not sure what your exercise routine is, but a fluctuation is not a disaster. Going from size 12 to 8 in one challenge is fabulous!! Hold that head up high. You are rockin’ it.
