Biggest Loser

Do you watch the show?  I do.  Not every season, but I’ve been pretty good at keeping up this season.  It’s pretty inspiring, especially if, like  me, you have more than a few pounds to lose.

You can see over there on the right that I’m doing the pound-for-pound challenge.  Within certain dates, you can pledge to lose a certain number of pounds.  Then you submit your results.  For every pound lost, Biggest Loser contributes a pound of food to a food bank (up to a certain number of pounds).  See how I’m not much of a details person? 😉  You wanna know more, go check it out.

So, anyway, I’ve resolved to lose the weight this year.  My cholesterol is high, my weight is high, my knees and ankles aren’t happy with me, and I have no excuses.  Well, it’s hard, that’s an excuse, but no longer one that I’m going to let stop me.  This year, I have to do it this year.  It’s my own marathon of weight loss.  That’s what I remind myself each day, this is a marathon and not a sprint.  This is a life change, not a fad.  This is a minute by minute choice, not a sudden transformation.

My goal is to lose 8 pounds a month, working out 4-5 times a week, eating healthy food in reasonable portions.  A few weeks I did great on all fronts.  Last week, I only worked out twice and had more than my share of Nutter Butters.  But today is a new day at the start of a new week filled with opportunities to make new and good decisions.  Wish me right decisions.
