    23.2 pounds lost. Shorted my goal by 1.8 pounds but that was actually my doing. Between the Ice Cream sample and something else this week I celebrated before I got to the finish line lol. I will gladly be donating to the Semper Fi fund now and will issues a new challenge that I would like everyone to participate in.

    Congrats on almost making your goal. Even though you feel short of the finish line every step you made you will not regret.

    For the food things I am thinking pizza. :D

    I know that was a typo and you meant "good things".

    Thanks to each of you and I look forward to this next challenge. First I owe myself a New York style pizza as that was my carrot when I reached the 25 pound mark. Then it is back to work.

    Well done pc747... Great choice of charity. I may join you on the next challenge. I keep on gaining and losing the same 10 lbs. Time for me to take the battle on again, I haven't been on the lower side of that 10 for maybe 20 years, so it would be a big challenge for me. Let me know!
