Biggest Loser 2010

So- on the 20th ( That was Monday), I started a Biggest Loser contest at my gym. I feel like that is almost a last resport for me in a sense. I need to get this weight off in order to get my health back in check and in line.

That day started off with an initial weigh in and fat measurement. I weigh in at 223#. That is my heaviest I think. I have 122# of “lean” weight and 100# of FAT weight! I came to the harsh realization that I am 100+ lbs more that what I weighed when I was in the Navy back in the late 90’s. How sad is that. Where did I let go???

My trainer is Liz, who also is a friend of mine and she works in the same building as me. It is nice to have a trainer who ios concerned about my health and will not let me “slip thru the cracks”. I think I have a chance here.

We did a “goal sheet” this week. Here is what I have:

73# to lose. I want to lose it by Valentines Day 2011. So the math is this: 12# a month for 6 months. That makes 3# a week. Do-able??

I weigh in every Monday. I am doing well so far I think and havent crashed yet. The fab chicas in my office wont let me fail… I ♥ them!

    I’m a big “Biggest Loser” fan. Remember, even those folks who are going through hell, have a bad week now and again. I lost my excess weight very slowly, but the benefit of feeling healthier and stronger by the day was there from the beginning, and never faltered.

    Howdy Angie!
    So I am Angie’s trainer, and I am so very proud of her! She’s doing awesome and attended her very first Pilates class yesterday. I’m the Pilates instructor at the gym, so the poor gal just can’t seem to escape me! Anyway, Angie, keep up the good work, my friend. You can do it, and I can already see you becoming the athlete I know you can be. Go for it! :)

    Angie,
    You are doing great, bum knee or no bum knee! You are 16th out of 54 people, not out of 40 like you thought. So when life throws you a curve, just get a bigger catcher’s mitt! Yesterday was one tough workout, wasn’t it? But you rocked it. Good job! Have a great weekend, and see you on Monday for weigh-in. :)
