I've spent the first month of our Biggest Loser Challange at work really trying to be a team player - to encourage everyone, to cheer on the winners board each week, to really make it about being healthier rather than thinner.
Today - I'm celebrating ME. At this week's weigh in - I'm down another 1.2 lbs. I didn't do incredibly well last week with my calories from alcohol 2 days, and I cheated with food (my emotional binge on Sunday) - so I'm suprised I wasn't like the majority of my office who gained weight.
But I am proud of me that I didn't eat the donuts someone brought last Friday, the biscuits and gravy that someone brough Monday and the cake that someone brought Tuesday.
I am proud that since the 4th of the year I am down 6.8 lbs, I've reduced my BMI by 1.1 - and am only .1 away from being at a healthy BMI level! I'm proud my clothes are fitting loser, I'm making it through workouts easier, and I've expanded what kind of workouts I do and how long.
I'm conquering my fear of heights through rock climbing (we just got more passes on a cincysaver.com so we can go for another week sometime soon!) I'm getting past the beginning stages of becoming a runner, and I'm no longer feeling quite as a mess while doing my 28 day bootcamp videos at home!
Today I'm proud of me - of my strenth thus far, of my goals I've kept (I'm so used to packing lunch everyday I feel weird not doing it! And I hardly ever hit snooze anymore - maybe once in the last 2 week!) and I'm just proud that I'm getting healthier, hotter, and happier!
So here's to me. Here's to all my accomplishments thus far - including currently being 4th out of 19 in our Biggest Loser Competition! And here's to next week's weigh in - where I hope to break out of weighing above 140 lbs - and celebrating those who continue to live a healthier life!
