The diet is over!

Friday, November 16, 2012

The biggest loser contest is over! Thank goodness. I HATE diets!

I started SP just to get a little healthier and stop gaining weight. I made small changes just like the SP program recommends, then added a little more here and there and made some nice progress. I didn't make anything off limits or consider anything really good or bad. I just wanted to stay in my ranges and try to be a little more balanced with my nutrition.

I made good progress, losing 25 pounds way before my birthday which was my goal. Then this contest came up and I thought it would be more motivation. Well it was, but it was also more stress. I felt like I had to be far more careful about what I ate. I couldn't be relaxed. It wasn't a change to my lifestyle, it was a temporary time to be extra careful.

So now it's over. The results were actually really good. I had a goal to lose 20 pounds over 11 weeks, and I lost 20.8. It does feel good to have met the goal, but I will be very happy to not worry about the scale so much anymore.

    I am very proud of you for sticking that contest out even after you decided it was stressful. Nine times out of ten, you finsih what you start, and learn a lesson if needed, but you don't quit. Making your personal goal was so important to you, and you DID IT!!!! you may not have won the biggest loser contest, but you are the biggest winner in my eyes. You stuck it out, and came out having done what you set out to do. Now take a deep breath, and take pride in what you accomplished. Nice job!!
