BLC Update…

on April 30, 2009

Look at that, 3 posts in one day! There’s only one thing that can explain it: boredom. I am sitting at the car dealer, waiting. Thank goodness I had the foresight to bring my laptop to kill some time and was able to get on a network!

So last week was the first week of the Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC) that I am in. I think it went really well! I am counting calories and working out. I think I am actually not eating enough to tell you the truth considering how much I have been working out. I need to find the correct balance. I don’t want to eat too few calories and make my body think that it’s starving and think that it should hold onto the massive fat cells I have.

I must be doing something right though because I did see a loss! The official documented loss was 2.5 pounds. It was hard to get a good weight because the first weigh-in was at night. I wanted to try to keep up with that so there wasn’t a gain the last week. My scale showed a 3.5 pound loss but I wanted to officially show low so there you have it!

Week one was a success. Now if the rest of the weeks will show losses as well! I figure if I can get past the first 3 or 4 weeks I will be doing good. It is a lifestyle change and I can honestly say that it’s been a little easier than I expected but I haven’t put myself to full tests though. Cakes, cookies, holidays, etc. I know I won’t cut out all of the stuff I love but eat it in moderation and on occasion.

Seeing the scale go down is exhilarating! I know not every day will be a loss and that’s ok. Even if I don’t win the competition, I am still a winner because I will have lost weight and gained some self-confidence.
