I'm so happy for Melissa! She is featured in a magazine for her weight loss. Melissa's one of those gals you just want to dislike because she's so darn pretty, fit, great mother, great at her job, volunteers, and is all around perfect. I ♥ u, Melissa! Great job!
I have been a part of the Biggest Loser 2010 group with friends. I was part of the Biggest Loser 2009 group, and I lost 22 pounds in 2009. Woot woot! 2010 has been a weird start to the year due to the move. Working full-time with a little one is tough enough, but then to come home to a to-do list a mile long is daunting. Weight loss and physical activity (unless related to the moving/unpacking) take a backseat. But I really need to get back in full force with the weight loss thang, and Melissa's success in print is excellent motivation. After all, I've gotta WIN BL 2010! Not that I'm ever competitive... :)
Food is my downfall. I can eat an incredible amount of food. Take my word for it. I can literally out-eat anyone I know. If you subtract sleeping and working, there's only so much time in the day to actually exercise. Upping my exercise will help, but I think even more so with me reducing the food intake will help drastically.
Friday is my weigh-in, and then I start a new "week." I pledge this every week that on Friday I will start my new leaf, and then by noon I've given up.
I don't know how to make this week different, but I really really want to. My birthday is over, there's no excuses. I know what I need to do. Now I just need to step up to the plate and DO IT!
