Saturday January 12, 2008 a friend and I enrolled in the Kmart "New Day Your Way" weigh loss contest. When my friend asked if I wanted to do it, at first I thought "no way". I kept having flash backs to grade school when they weighed us and how humiliated I was weighing so much more than the other kids. Yes, my weight issues started in 1st grade and only got worse. I was constantly teased and taunted about my weight.
My friend helped me overcome that fear and I went with her and it ended up being a very pleasant experience. Afterall, every one else there was there for the same reason I was--to get motivation and accountability with losing weight. I'm glad I went.
Their scale weighed me 2 lbs. more than mine, but that wasn't too bad. I did buy the same scale they use so I will match their readings from now on. I gave my old scale to my friend......her scale was 10 lbs. off! So, not we both have a more accurate reading.
I'm slowly losing those dreaded pounds I gained last week or so. I'm paying close attention to what and how much I am eating and have bumped up my exercise. I feel really good!
The weather this past week was pretty decent and Ken and I were able to go walking 4 times!
I will be weighing in at Kmart on the 26th and am optimistic I will attain the 2 lb. loss they require.
Here's to success!
