Today I am starting with all new motivation. Nothing has been working for me, so I am hoping this will work.
My local YMCA, where I go to the gym, is having a 8-week Biggest Loser program! Today is the very first day. We have a whole list of ways we can earn points throughout each week, then we submit it to our team leaders. I am hoping this is what I need to jump start my weight loss. I have been in such a funk. I love the show The Biggest Loser, so this time the Biggest Loser will be me!
Last week was my first official week in the 8 week Biggest Loser competition at my gym. I did really great! I was exercised almost double of what I am supposed to be doing according to my fitness tracker. I tracked ALL of my eating, water and veggies. I went to a Super Bowl party and ate healthy! I also limited my drinking to within my calorie limits. Yes, I had a good week! I lost ::drum rolls:: .........
3 pounds this week! Yipee! I am excited!
Week two down. I really had another awesome week of eating right. I actually worked out 8 times this week, which is a big record for me. I just wish it was reflected on the scale. I only lost half a pound. I know I am building muscle, but it is still a little disappointing. I am going to keep at it though! It will all even itself out eventually!
Week three was another good week, but I went over on my calories this weekend. I didn't eat BAD though, but just over a little bit. I continued to exercise a lot, but I am just not seeing the weight loss that I would like. It is frustrating. Sometimes I feel like I have to absolutely starve myself to lose any weight. I will keep plugging away though. I hope that all of this working out will catch up eventually!
I just realized that I never finished this! I think I did really great through the 8 week challenge. I ended up losing 8 pounds and worked out more than I ever did in my life. I actually have been going to kickboxing, pilates and am trying to work out at least 5-6 days a week. I was hoping I would have lost more weight, but it seems I lose it slowly. I will keep plugging along!
