Biggest Loser Update: Week 1 of 8

Minus two pounds.

That's the good news.

The bad news?

Minus TWO pounds.

I know, I know. The slower it comes off the better. But it is PAINSTAKING. I have been on program for about three weeks solid: getting up and working out before Pete and the boys get up, using my MDO time to work out, going to the gym on Saturdays, and even fitting in a neighborhood walk here and there. I've watched what I've eaten and stayed reasonable at most meals, even on special occasions.

All that for two pounds. Criminy.

And, okay, if I don't win the Biggest Loser contest at my gym, I suppose I will still be a winner with whatever weight loss happens.

But dammit I want that $100 gift card.

Remember, you are probably gaining muscle with all that working out! Keep it up, you are beginning to inspire me.

Congratulations! I would give my left freckle for two pounds right now. Apparently I have gained back all the weight I lost plus one pound. Good times.

Seriously, Christine. I think starving and/or binging and purging is worth $100. Haven't you heard the phrase "beauty is pain"? Bring on the laxatives!

Christine said...

Brittany, yeah, the starving is quite effective to win prizes but then I'd just have to start eating again. It's a vicious cycle...
