I'm sad....I Lost

Friday, April 04, 2008

I lost. My only competition in the Biggest Loser contest and I had a heart to heart this morning. He seemed remorseful for his negative comments about not trusting the weight recorded on me at the start of the contest. And the suspense was so immense, we just decided to weigh each other, though off the record, and see where we were both stood. He has lost 30 pounds, 15.29% of his total weight and I have lost 39.4 pounds 11.71% of my total weight as of today. And though we still have another week, mathematically there is no way I can catch him. But hey, Iím okay with it. I have lost weight consistently for 3 months, and Iím going to keep losing it! It was never about the money, the contest actually started after I had joined Spark People and after I had already started my diet. Itís been a good motivator but no amount of money will feel as good as being thin!

    You have done so well, you definitely are a winner.

I hope you are as proud of yourself as we are of you.

Take care and keep up the great work.

    It obvious, you are a WINNER!

Sometimes we need some competition to make things interesting, but in the end, it is the self-reward, the knowing that you accomplished something, not the color of the ribbon, that matters!

    I love the painting. Did you do that?

Men lose weight easier. It is due to their larger lean muscle mass. So the reality is you probably never had a chance to beat him.

You did great!
