First of all, I want to make it clear that I do not deserve a 5.8lb loss this week. The only food choices I made this week was what color Powerade Zero to drink. The only work out...coughing and sleeping. I wore my fitbit religiously throughout my illness and if I remember correctly through the haze one day it only registered 283 steps.
Yes. I was THAT inactive.
I know that I didn't work for these pounds, but they are mine nonetheless. The only thing is that it is very likely that I would gain it all back, but I am going to do my darnedest to hang onto what is lost. I need 4 more lbs to hit my 20 lb mark. That being 20 lbs since 01/03/2012.
If I don't start losing in bigger numbers...I am going to give my weight loss competition away (which is fine) all of my ladies that are still hanging in are doing a bang up job. There are eight official contestants who have lost a combined total of 102.4 lbs since January 3rd. Even my daughter who is an unofficial contestant (who's goal is only to make good choices and NOT lose weight) has lost six lbs. Six pounds on a 7 year old is a big deal. She is really a lot more conscious of what she eats. I am so proud of her for being so willing. and having the resolve to really learn to eat the right things. (It probably doesn't hurt that she has the possibility of getting some moolah for continuing to make good decision until the end of the competition...thanks Grandma!)
Anybody watching the Biggest Loser this season? (minor spoiler alert) Just curious. I had started a recap blog , but the attitudes of the people this season are just soo bad. People have voluntarily left. People have been targeted. It's just like watching an episode of work. (you know back when I had a job) What a squanderous waste! They should be ashamed. Last night a whole entire team threw a weigh in...can you believe it? They purposely sabotaged themselves to get back at someone else. Everything is just so negative that I have actually gone as far to say that I am truly thankful that I was not selected. I don't think it would have been an environment that would have been conducive to me learning and changing anything in my own life.
On a personal note, still no job. Working hard at looking, though. Anybody looking to hire a hard working, pleasantly quirky, and positive employee drop me a line. Oh...I have skillz too. Mad skillz.
