So depending on what weight you looked at for my weight last week, I either gained 0.8 lbs or stayed the same. Since I logged my weight at 306.2, technically I gained 0.8 lbs. However, before I weighed in at 306.2 lbs, earlier in the morning, I had weighed in at 307 lbs and that is just what I was this morning. So it could go either way. None of that is important though, because my personal goal was to be at 302 this morning and I wasn't. I didn't make my 5% weight loss that I wanted to these first 4 weeks. I had a bad week and ate above my personally chosen calorie range. I still ate below the sparkpeople calorie range, but I have my own goals. I also didn't go to the gym at all and it's that time of the month. So I am just happy I didn't show a real weight gain. Since I weighed in at 307, I figure I am still about the same I was last week. Now it's time to buckle down and eat low in calories and go to the gym to try to make up for the weight I didn't lose this past week. And I'm gonna do it. Especially if I remained the same due to water retention or whatever else biologically is off due to my period, hopefully I can show a great weight loss next week and be back on track.
As for the competition with my friends, I believe I am still in the 2nd place. Since I didn't lose any weight this week and possibly gained, I am at 3.64% while my friend Shayna lost a total of 5% of her weight in the first 4 weeks. That was my personal goal for myself. Vivien hasn't weighed in for whatever reason, so it's hard to know exactly where she is, but I doubt she pulled ahead of me percentage wise.
On another quick note, here is something interesting. If you look at my previous blogs from when I first started SP and lost 50 lbs, my fourth week I did badly as well. So badly I skipped my weigh in. And if it weren't for this competition, I would have skipped my weigh in this morning too. I just think it is funny that I did horribly the fourth week last time and this time as well. Maybe a few weeks after getting started, I just need a mental break in order to build myself up again. I still tracked all my food. Every last morsel that went into my mouth. And though I saw the total calories for each day increasing, I didn't say "Screw it. I've already done bad today, I might as well just end the day with a bang." Nope, I still tried to make healthy choices even if it was taking me higher then I wanted to be. For example, on Thursday, I was already at like 1800 calories for the day. I went out to do karaoke with some friends and they wanted to go to Denny's afterwards. Part of my mind was telling me, "Get the burger. You already ate too much today anyway. Start fresh tomorrow." Instead of listening to that food addicted side of my mind, I ordered off the nutrition fact menu they have. I looked for the lowest caloried foods they have for the Build Your Own Grand Slam and chose the foods with the lowest calories. That is a proud moment for me, especially since I absolutely adore their double cheese burgers which are 1400 calories alone. Instead of giving in to myself, I still ate sensibly and enjoyed my evening.

So I lost 3.8 lbs this week. I am very happy about that. I was a little behind my personal goal and now to be where I want to be, I have to lose 3.6 lbs this week. If I don't make it, that's fine. I will be very close to my goal and that is what matters. I ate very well this week, however I skipped a gym day on Monday. I meant to make it up all week, but never made it. So far it seems relatively easy to make it to the gym on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but that might be because it is my day off from work. Since I want to go on Mondays, that one of the worse days of the week me for at work. I think I need to choose another day. Unfortunately, my son starts school in 3 weeks so the schedule will likely change again then because I will have to start waking up early to take him to school and since I prefer to go to the gym late at night, that's not going to be very easy.
In regards to my competition with my friends, I am still in second place. I kind of "lied" about my weight this week. I didn't exactly like I just used the higher weight. Typically I weigh in when I wake up for good on Sunday morning. However, yesterday morning I woke up earlier then usual to use the restroom so I weighed in and took a pic. It said 307. Then I went back to bed and when I woke up for good, I weighed in and it said 306.2. I told my friends I was 307 to let them think I am further behind then I am. I had been planning on fooling with them by not weighing in until after I eat breakfast or drink some water so my weight shows higher, but I think that might be a little much. So it just so happened that I woke up early so I decided to try it. Unfortunately because I have them on my facebook, I can't be honest about the total amount of weight I lose when I update my facebook with it each week. So I don't think I'll be doing it again.
Here is how it stands:
Vivien: 1.76% (she didn't lose anything this week...I am wondering if she is giving up)

I am starting over yet again. Two friends of mine(Vivien and Shayna) are starting our own biggest loser contest. We start today. We all weighed in and it will last until the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Whoever loses the highest percentage of weight wins money! Each loser has to pay the winner $100.00. We discussing upping the stakes, but it's undecided. So I have logged all my food and am planning on hitting the GYM tonight. I have drank nothing but water today so it's been a good day. A success.
