I chose to take measurements when we started the 5x50 challenge and the results were a total of almost 2.5" combined off of my tummy and bum. Nothing at all off of my thighs and I actually increased my calf size by .25" on each leg. My scale weight actually increased by a few pounds too. I was starting to become depressed after reading so many of the success stories here. I remembered I had Steve snap a pic of my backside when we started the challenge. I had him snap another pic the night after the challenge and this is the end result. Same leg/same area, lighting was probably different and my legs have been exposed to sun. There is a visible difference in dimpling! The actual photo's of my bum (which I won't share here) actually show a reduction of my "saddlebags " as well. After losing 30+ pounds over the past few years, I have never been able to reduce the appearance of the flub. If anything, as I have lost weight, it had became more apparent. So the results are in: no change in diet, if anything, more parties over the challenge. The results are solely from increasing exercise. I hope the pic is viewable, I'm trying to post this from my phone! Gayle
