The Biggest Loser!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Two weeks ago I joined a free local program on healthy living. It was about the time when I wrote my previous blog where I declared war to my scale which for a while had been going UP instead of down regardless of my devotion to exercise! I was experiencing non-scale victories but my motivation was damaged. Doubt started creeping in. A tiny, mean voice inside of me was whispering, "Do you really think you can make it? You are struggling in vain. There's no 'salvation' for you in this matter! Accept it - you're gonna die as a fat person!'
I saw the program as an opportunity to pick myself up. As a team player I function well with group motivation. There was only one small problem. When we signed in - we had to be weighed in!

Thank God they did it privately so no one else could see other people's numbers! Mine was 257 lbs! Horror! Now, even when I added some lbs I didn't change the number of lost on my tracker because I didn't want to get discouraged. But that number was really horrible.
They recommended 30 min exercises 5 days a week including one group meeting when we can exercise together and weigh in to see our progress.
If things could get worse at that point - they did! Several days later my pinched nerve started 'working'. I couldn't get up off the sofa let alone work every day for 30 minutes! And I panicked!
You see, that's what I love about groups! They keep you responsible! So I said to myself: if you can't work that butt off, you have to stay in your calorie range! Period.
When I stepped on that scale yesterday, my heart was pounding like mad. I was praying, "Please, be down. At least 2 lbs. At least 2!" And I was down 12! Twelve lbs!
I even broke the lowest I have ever been since I joined SP!

So I happily show-off with my new title, "The Biggest Loser of the Week".

    Losing weight is more about what you eat instead of exercise which is good for your health. Congrats on the weight loss!
