Biggest Loser

In January, a group of about 20 of my coworkers decided to do a ‘Biggest Loser’ challenge at work. We ate less and exercised more. We all kicked in $50 at the start of the challenge. We kept track of our weight loss and the person with the biggest percentage of weight lost won $400. Second place won $300 and 3rd place won $200. I was thrilled to come in second place! I lost 26 1/2 pounds during the 10 week challenge. Right after the challenge was over, Brian and I went to Mexico (more on that later!) and since we’ve been back I’ve been having a hard time getting back at it. I’m doing fairly well with the diet part, but not so well at getting back to exercising. During our challenge I would be on our treadmill 4-5 times a week. Most of the other challenge participants are also having a hard time keeping up with how well they were doing, so we’ve decided to start another challenge! It actually started last Monday and I was a bit of a slacker in the exercise department during the week. I went on the treadmill today for a while and it felt great! Hopefully I can keep it up!! I’ve now lost about 30 pounds and would love to drop another 35 or so. There. If I write it down for people to read, I’ll have to do it! Wish me luck!

And speaking of Biggest Loser…this is the first season that I have watched each episode of the show. It’s so amazing and inspiring! I watch many of the episodes while I’m walking on the treadmill and they give me an extra boost! They yellow team, O’Neal and Sunshine, are such wonderful people and I love them more every week. One of my coworkers is their daughter-in-law/sister-in-law so it is fun to hear from her how they are doing. I’m so excited for the finale to see how it all turns out!
