The biggest loser contest is over! Thank goodness. I HATE diets!
I started SP just to get a little healthier and stop gaining weight. I made small changes just like the SP program recommends, then added a little more here and there and made some nice progress. I didn't make anything off limits or consider anything really good or bad. I just wanted to stay in my ranges and try to be a little more balanced with my nutrition.
I made good progress, losing 25 pounds way before my birthday which was my goal. Then this contest came up and I thought it would be more motivation. Well it was, but it was also more stress. I felt like I had to be far more careful about what I ate. I couldn't be relaxed. It wasn't a change to my lifestyle, it was a temporary time to be extra careful.
So now it's over. The results were actually really good. I had a goal to lose 20 pounds over 11 weeks, and I lost 20.8. It does feel good to have met the goal, but I will be very happy to not worry about the scale so much anymore.
