1st month of Fall Focus and didn't get the 10 I was shooting for

Friday, September 03, 2010

Aound the end of July I was back up to 410#. Ready to make changes and get back on track, I started a Biggest Loser Challenge in my town.
We are each paying $5 a week for 8 weeks. There are 10 participants. At the end of the challenge (end of September) The Biggest Loser (by % of body weight) will win $280 and the first runner up will win $120.
I also committed on two Spark Teams to lose 2.5# a week for each week til the end of the year. It's a 22 week challenge.
The first 4 weeks of all of these challenges was over this past Saturday. I didn't lose the 10# this month. I have lost the most POUNDS on the pay to play team, but not the biggest %.
I'm not giving up, it's one month and I have 4 months of 2010 left. I'm pressing forward to be lighter at the end.
I'm pushing for 10 in September. I only lost 5.5 in August, but I DID LOSE! I know I will break out of the 400's this September, possibly this week. Monday Aug. 30th weight was 402.1 looking forward to what the scale says on Monday Sept. 6th. Hoping there's a 3 at the beginning of my posted weight and I'm willing to keep on my program this weekend to ensure that is the case.

    Keep up the good work Diva! The first month is hard - but it lays the foundation for the next ones. We'll both do 10 in Sept. You'll see 3's very soon.

    You will do this, Diva! You are one of the strongest women I know, and you will push through and see that "3" shining up at you. I promise I will do all I can to push myself out of this hole so I do NOT see a "3" shining up at me next week. Argh. This is not easy sometimes.

    You will do it. I hope there is the 3 smiling at you on the 8th. You are working so hard and your positive mind set is great. You lost over 5 five pounds so you are moving down the scale.

    I saw a comment a guy put on a huddle one day that said something like 1 pound lost is equal to 2. You lost one so you are actually down two because you did not gain.

    emoticon You have the Sapphire Stars to support you!
