Biggest Loser Challenge

Monday, January 07, 2013

Well I did it! I joined our community centers "Biggest Loser" challenge & today was our first weigh in. I was really scared, I didn't know what was going to happen. I had so many questions going on in my head - I almost decided to not go!

Were we going to weigh in like they do on the show - in front of everyone?

Was everyone there going to know my weight?

Was I going to know alot of the people, then everyone would know what I was doing!

But guess what I did it anyway - even walking in late! But if I backed out now then I would always tell myself that I was a quitter!

Then came the time for the big weigh in - was it too late to leave - no one would know? It would have been easy to just leave but was that what I came for? NO - I cam to get healthy! So I went to the back of the room & lined up to get on those scales & weigh in front of someone that didn't need to lose weight. But I did it & as she wrote down my weight I felt a heavy burden come off of my shoulder. The scary moment was over - it was done now all I have to do is to make those numbers smaller every week.

I vowed to never be scared of the scales again or what people think! I have 12 weeks till the end - how much weight can I lose?
