Week 11 (changes)
Okay, I have changed my weigh in day from Monday to Saturday. Simple reason is that Saturday has always been my "free day", the day that I do what I want (including eating). But, the local Biggest Loser challenge that I did from April 11th to Ju... Read more
Week 10 Weigh In
So today marks the end of my local Biggest Loser (BL) contest. I weighed in at 290.2 for a loss of 2.6 lbs. Approximately 12 minutes of kettlebell work done this week, that's it for exercise. Officially I lost 27 lbs in the ten week period. In t... Read more
Week 9 Weigh In (loss!)
Week 9 of my local biggest loser challenge and I lost 3 lbs. at today's weigh in! Slowly but surely the weight is coming off.
I've lost 11.2 lbs in the last 4 weeks with zero exercise (for the last 3 weeks, 20-30 minutes the first week).... Read more
How I lost 8.2 lbs in 3 weeks (must read stuff!)
In 3 weigh ins (May 24, May 31, June 6) I managed to lose 8.2 lbs. In the first week I did approximately 20-30 minutes of exercise. (I hurt my back that week and it hasn't fully recovered yet.) In the 2 weeks that followed I did zero fitness min... Read more
Week 8 Weigh In (another loss)
Well another week down. This week's weigh in was good. I lost another 2.8 lbs. So far in 8 weeks I have lost a total of 21.4 lbs. Of course I wish it were more, but I'll take a loss over a gain any day!
Probably the most beautiful part of ... Read more
Week 7 Weigh In
Week 7 weigh in today ...
But before I get into that, I need to fix some math from last week. The gal that wrote down my numbers last week miscalculated. I lost 2.6lbs last week, not 3.6lbs. So my weight last week was 301.4, down a total o... Read more
Week 6 Weigh In ... finally a loss again
So today was my week 6 weigh in and I dropped 3.6lbs., hurray!
After 2+ weeks of not losing any weight I decided to completely change my diet and exercise regimen. From Friday to Monday I lost 3.6lbs and I am now looking forward to my nex... Read more
Week 5 weigh in
So I just had my week 5 weigh in and I am not pleased. I GAINED .6 lbs. That means that in the last 2 weeks I have only lost .2 lbs. I'll tell you what, I worked way too hard in the last 2 weeks to have only lost .2 lbs. I'm going to take a day ... Read more
As I sit here trying to write about negative self talk, I keep putting words down, then erasing them and telling myself "that's no good, who would want to read this crap". There's a voice in my head that doesn't like me and I just have to put up... Read more
Week 4 weigh in just sad
So today was the week 4 weigh in. I didn't have high expectations for this week due to several factors, including eating too much yesterday at a Mother's day potluck (it was good though). So off to weigh in I did go.
And the verdict is:

Week 3 weigh in
This last week I have felt pretty good. I have had an increase in spasms in my lower back, but I really did expect that to happen as I am forcing those muscles to work when they don't want to. I'm just not going to push myself real hard and make... Read more
Just 10 letters, but to so many of us it can sometimes feel like an invisible object just out of reach. We all have a plethora of reasons why we are here; to be healthier, to be happier, to feel more accepted, to be able to enjo... Read more
Week 2 Weigh In
My week 2 weigh in came on Monday, the day after Easter. It wasn't a good week for me. Felt tired all week, didn't get in enough exercise, diet was all over the place. Top all of that off with the fact that a friend of mine fell off of a 2 story... Read more
Week 1 Weigh In
So today was the first weigh in for my Biggest Loser contest. I wasn't dreading it, I was looking forward to seeing some pounds come off. This was also my first week on SparkPeople.com so I am still learning how to use all of the available tools... Read more
My "About Me", very first, kickoff blog post.
I turned 41 on March 31, 2011. I signed up for a local Biggest Loser contest on April 11, 2011 and learned about SparkPeople.com from the contest literature. So, here I am and I find it to be very helpful. I used to be a gym rat, ate all the rig... Read more
