how challenges motivate me

So today is day 3 of my online weight loss challenge....not intended for me, but I always play along.  I feel motivated because well, I can't slack off while I'm rooting for everyone well, drink water, and of course I feel like I have to do it to the max!
I am planning on weighing in on SAt or sun (Probably sun)...I did take a week off from it , but I measured my stomach today and lost 0.5 in off waist and another 0.8 off hips! Yippee ! (shrink hips shrink!)
I also made a youtube video about my weight loss journey (and I am so not technological so if you watch lol don't criticize my videography too much).  This was very personal for me to I guess look the reason for my weight gain in the eye!I hope it inspires someone if you watch it. I welcome comments about it (lol other than lack of videography skills)
