Let The Games Begin! (BLC 23)

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Super excited that BLC 23 kicks off today! This is my 4th consecutive round with the Sassy Shamrock Sheriff's! No disrespect to the other teams because they are ALL FABULOUS, but I couldn't imagine not being on this team with my Sassy Supportive Sisters! emoticon They always know how to motivate me and just when to give me that kick in the tush that I sometimes require. emoticon

Part of BLC is doing the dreaded "before pictures"... I have never taken pictures showing this much skin... and 80 pounds ago I wouldn't even take a photo like this for MYSELF, let alone post it. So that took a lot of courage... and I had to take a moment where I had to remember how far I've come to be able to post this. Just be lucky I spared you the rest of my stomach (if you saw that part, you'd understand exactly why I will be getting a tummy tuck down the line). emoticon And I didn't flap the flying squirrels either. emoticon

Starting weight for the round 192.4

And a flexibility pic... nothing ever flattering about that angle either lol.

My goals for the round:
emoticon: Lose 17.4 pounds which would get me to 175.
emoticon: Consistently get at least 300 minutes per week.
emoticon: Get as many participation points as possible to move up in the ranks.
emoticon: To not be afraid to ask for support or a kick in the butt from my fellow Sheriff's.
emoticon: To provide that same support and kick in the butt to my girls.

I know weight loss is the name of the game, but success for me isn't necessarily the number on the scale... it is making sure that I am putting my all into this for myself and my team. To be there for my team and for us all to reach (or at least come close) to our goals.

On a separate note, thanks for all the love and support this last week. I have taken every suggestion into consideration and I finally was able to turn my eating around! I am back on track and more important I'm feeling happy and confident again, and that is the best feeling in the world! emoticon

Just for giggles a reminder of how far I've come:
