I decided to do this challenge because I liked the fact that my belt went down two notches after elk hunting in the fall of last year. We (Megan's husband JD and I) were hiking 10-12 miles a day for a week at elevation and I lost about 12 pounds. Upon my return to civilization I gained it all back in a week...Dóh! Anyhow everyone's posts are very positive so I won't bring you down by saying I gotta have my afternoon Mexican Coke no matter what. More point for yáll next week. Good luck all.
