Biggest Loser Week 1

It's that time of year again!

We all want to lose weight, eat healthy, get fit, and just feel better.

Last year I organized a biggest loser competition where I work.  We all paid 10 dollar to enter and a dollar each week that we gained weight.  Every Friday for about 8 weeks we did this.

I lost about 10 pounds last year, which I was happy with, but haven't lost a single pound since then. 

Today we start again.  

Losing weight is sooooo difficult for me.  I love food!

I always joke that I don't eat to live, I live to eat!

One of my goals for the year is to lose 20-30 pounds.  My plan of attack is to work out 3 or 4 times a week, using my Couch to 5K app and counting my calories using MyFittnesspal app.  I'm trying to be more realistic with my goals.  I always feel like I should be losing 2-3 pounds a week, but I'm going to be satisfied with 1 pound a week.  As long as the numbers are going down I will be happy.  

I'm going to do my best not to be obsessive about it.  I'm only going to weigh once a week.  

And for extra accountability, I'm going to keep y'all updated on my progress each week.

This weeks weight: 194 pounds


I'm not quite brave enough to post a picture of myself in biker shorts and sports bra like some bloggers.  It took a lot just to post my weight for the world to see.  
Posting pictures takes some serious guts, that I don't have.  

Have a good weekend and eat a piece of chocolate cake for me!!


  1. Good luck! I don't know if I would have the guts to put my weight on my blog. But if anything would motivate me to workout/eat right that would!

    1. That's what I'm hoping!! Thanks Casey!


Love to hear your thoughts!!
