My first team challenge for the Amethyst Team Challenge is to blog or write about five challenges or obstacles. Oy boy. Only five? 1) Soda Nazi - No soda for me. As much as I love the bubbly refreshing sugar rush of a cold glass of coke... Read more

I feel like the biggest hero of weight loss this week. I lost a half lb. Or something like that. .7 if we're keeping track. Now... truth be told, .7 weight loss isn't anything to get that excited about. I lose more than .7 in stall #2 a... Read more
Bedrest begone!

Bedrest no more! I'm free!! Sort of. I still can't exercise as much as I'd like. So this herniated disc I'm dealing with is caused by scar tissue from having meningitis last year and a cyst (which I've named Cysty Spacek). I know most p... Read more

I've been benched. No more spin for me, at least for a week. I'm on bed rest due to a spinal issue that's causing severe sciatica. I was finally making some great progress and on my way to a healthier me, so this is really upsetting... Read more
The end of Biggest Loser Spring Challenge
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      4 comments

Well. It's the end of the Biggest Loser Spring Challenge and this is what I accomplished. 1) In 10 weeks I lost 16.6 lbs. My goal was 20 so that's a bit disappointing. 2) I continued to live a soda free life. 3) I "met" really n... Read more
Jon Benjamin has a tour. Jo Ellie has a lot of snacks.

Last night we went to see the Jon Benjamin live show (Jon Benjamin has a tour) and it was everything I hoped it would be. The worst part of the night was putting in the calories from my "snack" of double vodka. And then maybe the calories ... Read more

Not drinking pop has improved my skin. I can put all the money I would have spent on skin care towards night classes in properly opening low calorie microwave meals. Has anyone else gotten a spork injury trying to open up those steam bomb ... Read more

One would think after months of eating well that I'd be able to correctly open a Lean Cuisine package. Alas, it still eludes me. Sorry Chicken Club Panini. I'm sure the half of you that cooked is delish.... Read more
C'mon scale.

After a great week of cleaning eating and working out I was very excited to get on the scale this morning. I stepped on and... well... cue up the sad Price Is Right horns, it was the same exact number as the week before. I even took some... Read more

First off, I wanted to say that I'm really enjoying being part of a Biggest Loser Team. I'm tres awkward, so it's forced me to meet people which has given me so much support. I was worried I'd not fit in well but that hasn't been the case at a... Read more
Back from the Big Easy

Or Big Squeezy. We're back from vacation and I gained a pound. That's not too horrible considering the amounts of Strawberry Abita consumed. We did walk a lot as we knew we would. I'm sad to be back. I wish I could pick up my li... Read more

I'm trying to figure out why this time losing weight seems to be easier. Not that I mean it's easy, it's not. I just seems easier to be focused on it and work hard. I think giving up soda has made it easier to be healthier in general. Th... Read more

I got an invite from a group that provides support for finding healthier alternatives to your favorite alcohol beverage. I laughed so hard at this I hit my head on my desk. Does that count as cardio? ... Read more
