I got up early on a Saturday after 3 months of being accountable.
After 3 months of trying to eat better, drink tons of water, and workout nearly every day of the week.
I was prepared to hear the results, I felt they would not be good enough to win.
I had resolved myself to be content with the knowledge that I had lost some weight, some inches, and had improved my BMI a little.
I knew I felt stronger and had more energy. And that was good enough for me.
So I got on the scale. 14.8 pounds lost (over 3 months). I was disappointed that I couldn't have pulled out that .2 and had an even -15lbs. I was disappointed that I hadn't pushed myself hard enough to lose 2 pounds per week.
She did my measurements. Woa! (2.25 inches off my upper arms!!! 4.25 off my waist! etc. All total, 7.25) Plus another inch off my neck (I tracked that, it wasn't part of the contest).
Biggest Loser. Prizes for most pounds lost, highest percentage lost, and most inches lost.
I went to work. Waited for the facebook posting.
OMG! I won for most pounds lost and was .1% away from the top percentage lost! I kicked some group hiney! Shocked I was indeed!
I signed up for the next session. I love the accountability. I love competition. But most of all I love feeling stronger and having more energy.
I did not have perfect weeks. Sometimes I gained. One week I only exercised for 2 days because I felt so bad. But I never quit. And I learned some new exercises, recipes, and made some new friends.
June 21 is the next goal date. I'm looking forward to it.
