3 more weigh-in times before I am doing it on my own

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Tommorrow will mark the 10th week I have been trying to lose weight on a contest. I have lost 18 pounds so far this way, and 5 pounds more, before I started the contest. So, it looks like so far (contestwise) I have lost 10% of my body weight in 9 weeks. Thats not a bad start. I am afraid that all I have done this week, will not make the scale go down much more. Its been hard this last week. I am not eating tons, but I am eating a little more than I should. Who knows how many calories really are in artichoke/spinach dip? I ate about 3 Tablespoons. It was good and homemade! Ughhhh!!

I walked and walked this week. A little run sprints in between walking to add to the burn. But, I feel bored, and have to push myself more than ever. I didnt walk the miles and miles I have in the mornings of weeks past, but, I am walking a little more at night.
I need to stay motivated!! I think the lack of motivation came when my fellow male teammate wanted me to eat 1000 calories a day or eat the way he is. No bread, white flour, sugar...etc.... Only to eat veg/fruits and white meat. This is not doable in my house. I have a famly to cook for and take care of. How a single male (who eats out all the time- and eats half his plate) advise a married woman with children is so unfair and not understandable....ughhh!! I do not think this cant be done. But, I dont want to eat that way. I want to lose weight eating what I want and not limiting myself and my family. I want to finish this weight lose journey not cutting out things, only to go back and over eat them later.
Next, week (as I say every week) I WILL DO BETTER!!

    Hey 10% is great! You are doing fine. If you are feeling a bit in a funk, then i suggest you find a new exercise or a new route for a while. Don't let that teammate bring you down. You can do this.
