This isn't quite what I had in mind as my first blog post here, but then most things in life don't happen exactly as you plan them. In my head, my first blog post was going to be an announcement of some great milestone or achievement, or maybe a posting at a time when I would really need an extra push of support. However, I decided to post today because of a team challenge I'm participating in. The challenge is kind of in the style of Biggest Loser or Survivor with teams that whittle down as the weeks goes by and bonus challenges that allow to you earn extra pounds each week. This week we could earn bonus pounds by tracking all of our food for a certain number of days and by blogging three times. I track everything every day, so that was no problem. But, I've been holding out on blogging for a variety of reasons. However, I'm super competitive and after losing weight consistently for 24 weeks, I actually gained two pounds this week. Thus, I really need those bonus pound credits! So, here I am.
More tomorrow; remember, I need three posts!
