I've experienced the "Dreaded Week 2"
Monday, January 14, 2013
I've watched several seasons of Biggest Loser and it is common knowledge that the participants struggle during their second week. Thank goodness I know this or I would be in a big state of depression. I have been fully and completely committed on this weight loss journey. Sure, I am "only" on Day 12, but it's been a great past 11 days. Let me rephrase that, "It was a great 7 days and a mediocre at best last 4 days."
I know better than to let it get me down, but it's sure hard not to. The secret to success for me is to plan my meals and my workout schedule. All of that is set and ready to go, so I am hoping this week will see more positive results. Another component of my success is having my husband on board with me (for once). He too has struggled with week 2, although not as bad as me, and I definitely want to keep him encouraged. Sure, I should be able to do this on my own, but let's face it, it's soooo much easier if your husband follows suit.
To all of you who kicked this thing off on New Years, good luck in surviving Week 2. If we can get past this, we are well on our way!
