The Competition is Over

Saturday marked the end of the 12 week competition that I participated in on the Tosca Reno forum. As of last night, all of the contestants' before and after photos are up on the site, feel free to pop over to the forum and check them out. If you are already a member, and have been since April 2009, you can vote for your top 6 contestants (3 for each category). Good luck to everyone!

I plan on posting my before and after pictures and results here once the judging is complete next week. Overall, I am really happy with how I did and hope that I place in the judging!

Allan arrived home on Friday night after a week of fishing in Northern Manitoba with his dad. It is so nice to have him home. It was the longest that we have been apart or not spoken to each other in the 5 1/2 years that we have been together.

We ended up having a really nice weekend together filled with test kitchen eats, my first real cheat meal since the beginning of the competition (pizza at the Leaning Tower of Pizza & homemade sangria by the fire!), a long bike ride, some cleaning, errand running, and a movie. Yesterday we went to a matinee of Up in 3D. It was one of the cutest, heart warming movies that I have seen in a while... I might even dare to say that it was better than Wall-E, which I also loved! It was definitely an all ages show that spanned a wide array of mature topics while still being completely suitable for young children. There were several scenes in the movie that pulled at your heart strings and made me well up with tears. What a treat! Thanks, Allan.

Congrats on achieving your goal. I had a look at the photos and I think I've figured out which one you are. The results are very good so you must be proud.

Your dandelion tea, was it just that or was it mized with other things?

Hi Maria, love your blog and looking forward to seeing your results. I am a member of the forum, which section and what is the title of the thread?

The photos are posted in the General Section of the forum in a thread named "12 Week Contest - Vote Now - Faster Load". You can post your votes as a comment on the thread or PM your votes to traweaver.

MAJL, Thank you! I was pleased with my results and look forward to challenging myself more in the near future. I am on Stage 7 of NROL4W, which focuses on fat loss, whereas the last few stages have focused on muscle building.

The dandelion tea that I drank was a Detox tea made by Yogi Teas.

Ok, I can't stand it anymore... If you are a member of the forum you can preview my results in the thread that I mentioned above that is posted in the General Section. I am the one in the brown bikini in the before shots and the pomegranate (pink & purple) bikini in the after shots.
