I was doing so well last year. At my low point I had lost just shy of 100 pounds... and then I did what we all have a tendency to do, I slacked off in a serious way. There were circumstances, but aren't there always. I got injured, and I slacked, and then I was so busy in July and I said I would start back in August, and then I kept pushing it back, And even at the start of this year I said oh I'm going to do it, and then I didn't feel good one day and whoops I fell back. But today I am starting the Biggest Loser NWOSU edition, and I have every intention of winning. We are supposed to have a group of four, and we currently only have three members, but that isn't going to stop me. I think we have assembled a strong group and with the three of us working together at this even with one less member I think we could even win the team overall! Not that we wouldn't accept a fourth member.... yeah if interested let me know... if you are in the area.
I got myself a wii to use, and I have team mates that want to exercise by playinf racquetball which is my favorite way to workout (well that or tennis, and by tennis I mean real tennis not tennis on the wii because that isnt the same or volleyball). I am really excited and I am a very competitive person, so I think that something like this is the perfect way for me to get back into this!
So we weigh in today, and I really don't want to look at that number! But I am drinking lots of water to start. And I am going to track my food. It really isn't that difficult, and I am going to start listening to my positive thinking cd as I go to bed and I am going to astound everyone. This time it is different! I am different... and it helps that I now have a 13 year old instead of a 5 year old. I don't have to find a babysitter to workout. Yay!
But so the adventure begins anew. Its time to get serious about being the best me possible. And a little competition never hurt in getting me motivated!
