That's it folks...we are officially halfway through this 60 day challenge! I weighed in today at 210.8, so I'm down 4.2 since the start of this. Not bad for 30 days...but I can do a little better. I would love to be under 200 by 12/31, so that is what I'm aiming for. We'll see if I can pull it off! I realize how aggressive that is...and as you know from following me I'm not going to be crushed if I can't get there.
Can I just say "hello, I lost weight during Thanksgiving week - again!!!" GO ME!
In the meantime I'm catching up on the Biggest Loser on hulu.com and getting in bed early as I have a very busy day at work tomorrow. I love watching that show and being inspired - and excited that I probably wouldn't qualify to be on it anymore. :) That's pretty darn cool. I watched it for the first time last year wishing I could be on there. Now I am lighter than everyone at first, then they begin to catch up to me. :)
And the part that kind of chokes me up is that I am doing it without a show or a trainer. Now I have certainly had support and help...but its me getting myself up in the morning. That's pretty cool to realize.
I read a quote today that stuck with me - "don't treat your stomach like a garbage can." Really made me think about the kind of food we put in our bodies. That is part of why I don't drink sodas anymore - have you seen what happens to the engine of a car when coke is poured on it? Why do my innards need that kind of cleanse? Now I still have a diet coke once every 6 months or so - but I know really, its like putting trash in my body. Now if I could channel that same resolve around marshmallows...lol. Small changes, folks, small changes.
So here are my stats for today:
