The Biggest Loser

Monday, June 04, 2012

My morning started great! I walked 2 miles with Leslie before leaving for work. Today was my weigh-in - I'm down 4.6 pounds for the week. I'm walking back to my room, when another teacher asked about my loss for the week (she's part of the Biggest Loser group at school and was weighing in too). When I told her, she made some remark that it was probably the result of my being sick for a couple of days! Why did she try to steal my joy? I simply replied that I exercised in spite of being sick and that was why I was successful. Talk about a big loser!

Regardless, the rest of my day was great!! Four more days and school is out. One of my students gave me a giant Special Dark Candy bar. I thanked him and placed it on the table in the workroom.

I stayed on plan all dayand walked one mile when I got home. I signed up for a water aerobics class which starts next week. When I belonged to the gym, I did water aerobics almost every day. So I can't wait to get back into the pool.

    Wow congrats. Despite not feeling well you persevered by keeping up with your workouts and you saw it with the results on the scale.

    You are an example to those on the Biggest Loser team at your school. You did not let adversity get the best of you. If the co-worker who was the negative Nelly pays attention she just may see results as well.

    Good for you on signing up for water aerobics. I just started doing laps last night and look forward to doing it again.

    Way to go! You are totally on track and achieving!
    Talk about the other person being a wet blanket, bubble burster, and raining on your parade! Probably just jealous of your success. Agree with BLKLILY,
    don't talk to her about your efforts. She's a sabotager.

    First of all -- wow!!! what a great weigh in. Congrats on such a wonderful accomplishment.

    And, I just find myself shaking my head at your co-worker's comment. People are so funny like that at times. But, I'm glad you were able to share with us about it, and then brush it off -- can't get stuck in that unhappy place, especially when there's so much to celebrate!

    Water aerobics sounds wonderful. Just read an article about that in Prevention magazine and for the first time in forever I actually thought that maybe I should put on a bathing suit and try it out. Looking forward to hearing how you like it.

    hugs . . .

    I almost cursed...don't let her still your joy and if at all possible, don't share your journey with her. Even if she was thinking it, as she was, why say it out loud? Some people will be jealous and mean regardless. Ugh, she has made me mad.

    In all, good for you lady and keep losing. She's not a big loser, she's just a loser!

    I wish you another 5lbs next week on your weight loss!
