The book I read was called 100 days of weight loss and was okay. I learned more from the the first half, but the second half was stuff I already knew and was more common sense to me. BUT, that is my opinion. I know we all have different mental states when it comes to food and how we deal with food. What I may already know, maybe be new to someone else who never thought of it like that. It's really easy to read though. I think the biggest thing I took from the book was eating more after I'm full is wasting the food because my body doesn't need the extra food. I might as well waste the food by leaving it on the plate instead of ingesting extra calories.
I still struggle with getting in enough water, but I'm trying. My food intake has been overall good throughout this challenge. I still have a long ways to go to get to my goal weight so I have to continue to eat well and make good choices.
Now for the pictures:

I feel like the skirt fits much better. When I started the challenge I was afraid if I sat down in the skirt that the zipper would pop. I no longer feel that way. I would sit down no problem now. My stomach is not as prominent as it was in the beginning either. I think this challenge was definitely a success. I don't know that I would wear it out just yet. I would be holding in my stomach all night. I had to consciously not hold my stomach in when the picture was being taken. I really would have liked to suck it in so the stomach wouldn't show up in the shirt, but then I wouldn't have been honest with myself or you.
Congrats to all those who stuck with this challenge whether you struggled, lost, or maintained. I hope you gained insight into your journey and will continue on. I thank each and every one of you for your comments and support and I hope I was a support, at times, to you.
Merry Christmas, stay safe and remember to be good to yourself and your waistline these coming weeks.
