School's Biggest Loser is not working for me...

Monday, November 22, 2010

Okay- so I join the BL Challenge at my school,and this does motivate me as I have journaled every day and I have stayed with in my calories and balanced my carbs, proteins and fats for 12/14 days... and added a slew of water consumption to my days.... so yes it motivated me. BUT I stayed the same the first week and then the second week I GAIN 1.5 pounds... what the hell??!! The BL Challenge at my school is a "team" thing... and I am making my team a loser team in the sense that they look like gainers... not GOOD!

So today I bow out of that Challenge as I can't deal with the thought that not only is my body letting me down but also to my team members.

I am doing this for myself, and I have to do it my way-- and with my body going wirey due to lack of sleep I can't depend on anything happening on a weekly basis-- hopefully after 4 weeks things will come together for my body but it is just too screwy right now.

I am getting my CPAP on Tuesday 11/30 and I am hoping that with in a month of using it I will feel much better and be able to have gumption to exercise and that the biological affects of good sleep with take over.

I feel like a quitter but I am NOT-- I just don' t think a team challenge is the way for me right now. I am going SOLO... and feeling better with that decision. emoticon

    Don't get discouraged just yet Amy. Your body will kick in soon with the program, just keep it up, and remember, you are more than a number on that scale and health is not all about the number! emoticon
