Why I choose to do a BLC

Monday, December 10, 2012

This message is directed at the wonderful Lime team.

I feel that people look at me and question why I have chosen to do a biggest loser challenge. I am 137lb which for many people is more then they could ever ask for. I am also 21, well below the average age of these challenges.

However, I am short; somewhere between 5'2 and 5'3. If you put my this into a BMI calculator I am hovering on the edge of the 'overweight' category. My ideal weight should be between 110 and 135.
Also, I do poorly without accountability. If you look at previous posts I have struggled with binging. I don't do this any more (thanks to stopping counting calories and restricting 'unhealthy food') however, I still will over eat if I don't have the accountability to stay on track.
Same goes for exercise, it is so easy for me to skip a couple of days then loose faith in myself in ever working out again. It is a slippery slope.
Like everyone else it is so easy to lose sight of things and 'wake up one day' to realizing you are 10lb heavier then you were a few months ago.

I have done a BLC challenge in the past and was successful. By tracking my exercise and doing the weekly challenges I can focus on the short term goals. I am able to force myself to do a few minutes of exercise each day just so I could put a few minutes a day into the weekly counts.

I hope this explains my choice. I am so excited to get things going!

    You did not have to explain your choice to "US", but if it helps you to know, then so be it! Great blog! Accountability is worth soo much! I am sure you will do GREAT!
