Well, when I first took a look at this challenge I thought "No Way", this is HARD, HARD!!!
Took a 2nd look, saw that it allowed 5 days to get it all accomplished, hmmm ok then..
Got it started, slowly at first, VERY SLOWLY - then, something happened (maybe reading how fast my teammates were getting it done) and I said well, let's just do it too!!
So, I did and although I never got far enough to work backwards, I felt proud that I reached the end.
In order to accomplish this Challenge goal I LITERALLY had to SHOOT FOR THE STARS, but then that's what it was REALLY all about!!

Yep, that's the number I saw on my scale this morning - YIKES!!! WHAT HAPPENED???
Simple answer to that question - eating and drinking OUT!!
In the past week, I've eaten exactly 1 (ONE)! dinner meal at home, prepared by me or hubby. I know it's supposed to be fun to eat out, and it is, but let's be realistic, there's absolutely no way I can control what goes into the food that we didn't prepare!! The other culprit is the wine that's part of the meal....Now, I know I can drink water, tea, anything else, it doesn't have to be alcoholic so why don't I just say NO??? Because I'm in a setting where others are consuming a drink and I get lazy and think, oh 1 or 2 won't hurt me.... It doesn't, in fact Dr's. even recommend a glass of wine, but when I think about the days of constant dining out, and I count up those glasses of wine, I'm truly horrified!!
So, I've made a decision this morning that I WILL NOT give in to that temptation and to limit our eating out as much as possible. I'm not participating in the Biggest Loser Challenge for fun........I'm here to get rid of the 5, now 10 extra pounds I've gained through carelessness.
Stay turned for future reports of my success with this new goal!

Big dreams, want to fly a fighter jet, duh! You're a GIRL...want to sing...UMMM no money for lessons.....want to be a Stewardess....need a nursing degree.....no money for that either!!
The above were the limitations to becoming the things I wanted most in life (oh, yeah and a FIGURE, you know hips, trim waist and ummm, boobs)!
Well, Miss 16, shaped like a box and only 5'2", thinking wow, am I ever going to grow up, be beautiful, have a gorgeous pageboy hairdo??
I wish I could go back and have a serious chat with that young lady to let her know that all those dreams, wishes and wants would absolutely become hers in the years ahead (well, never did fly that fighter plane or become a stewardess, but VERY CLOSE)...Anyway, it was a healthy thing to have those dreams little girl, you wanted MORE out of life than what your Mom, Aunts, or Granma had. You wanted to "go East young lady", telling anyone who would listen, I'm going to live in New York when I grow up!! You did join the Air Force and got close enough to those awesome airplanes you so adored, being part of history and ultimately winding up in your dream state - New York!!
I would say to you, good on you for not giving up on at least some of your dreams. But, I think I would have encouraged you to get more education along the way. I know you turned out pretty intelligent, worldly and well rounded, all by your own doing, proud of you!!! Still, having an advanced degree might have been a fun thing to try!!
All in all, Miss 16, I'm pretty proud of the way you turned out, but I sure don't think it was me that had much to do with it!!!

All summer long I've maintained a weight of 150, maybe a little up maybe a little down. I'm happy and decided that's what my ideal weight probably is.
Fast forward to November. Been here in FL for a month, during that time I've managed to put on 3-5 lbs., depending on the day. I still workout, still monitor my food and track, but there's one huge difference. We are living in an RV, albeit a nice one but nevertheless it's all of 35 feet and maybe 4 feet wide in the general walking areas. In short, it's nothing like my bigger home up North with a short set of stairs to the lower level, a yard and a mailbox across the street.
So, the deduction is, I'm simply not moving around as much, there isn't as much to take care of and even though I do walk 4-5 times a week, it's just not enough MOVEMENT to help me keep those lbs. at bay.
I'm thankful we are buying a home and should be in it before Christmas then I can kiss the Florida 5 goodbye!!!

Hard to believe our "little girl" (GD) will be starting High School tomorrow!! She's a good student, good athlete and posseses a warm, loving heart. I pray her Guardian Angel accompanies her and forever keeps her in his/her care.
Starting to get listings for homes in Fl. since we're getting ready to head down in about a month. As predicted, there are many, many available, so I'm sure we won't have any problem finding something just right for us. Looking forward to seeing all our "snowbird" friends once again as well.
Looking forward to BLC 14, although the team I requested is not available, I trust I'll find a team and get back in the groove. My goal is to reach my goal (for the 2nd time)! then move to a Maintenance Team to keep it off! It's only 5 lbs. for cripes sake, why is it being so stubborn??
Blogged out but want to try and make this a habit. I think it's good to write down our thoughts on a regular basis.
