SO I got this email today from the 12wbt:
You are in the Official Top 15% for Round 3!
What can I say – WOW! I am just going through the results so far for this round and guess what… based on your results, you are in the top 15%!! You have lost a total of -12.54% of your total body weight in Round 3 over the last 11 weeks!!
I have to commend you for coming so far, and for giving this program your all – it’s clearly paid off, and I am SO proud of you.
Now, this round of the 12wbt is not my first time at the rodeo. I’ve done 4 rounds. I’m fractions shy of having lost 40 kilos in total. But I have NEVER had one of these emails.
It’s strange. Part of me (the small and under-utilised rational thinking part) knows that 15% of a very very large pool of members is not a big deal. That these emails probably get sent to many many hundreds of people.
But another part of me craves validation and appreciates it where I find it. And realises that sharing this achievement with many people makes it no less of an achievement by me.
I’m in the top 15% of the Round Three 12wbt members.
And I’m proud of it.
