I have a little less than 1 month left in the biggest looser challenge I am in. YIKES! I have not lost as much as I was hoping to so far, probably cuz I hit a wall, cheated one too many times, and haven't been below 170 pounds in a very very long time. I am now!!! hurray! I am 169, which means I have lost 14 pounds! I wanted to lose 30 pounds, which is a big goal in a short time but I am happy with what I have lost and now want to kick it up a notch before the month ends.
All I have done is watch what I eat, totally increase the amount of water I drink and cut out a lot of fats and sugars. I don't cut out carbs, I want to start a new way of eating/living and carbs is a part of a balanced diet! I don't think it is realistic to completely cut them out! plus I am super super duper grouchy when I don't get a serving of carbs everyday!!!! and we all don't want that :)
I am going to try going to this place where you stand on a machine and it shakes you and you have to keep your balance and you do arm work outs while on it....it makes you use your core and it is a total body work out in 10 minutes. My mom and oldest sister go and they said the inches are just dropping off. So I will try that a couple of times this week and I want to start going for walks.
The other morning I woke up looked in the mirror and stood there staring at myself for a few minutes with my mouth agape. J asked what I was doing, all I could say was "I am aging", gravity is no longer my friend!!! um yah it's sad!!! especially in certain parts of my body now that I have lost some weight! so I need to do some muscle strengthening!! and maybe a face lift! LOL
I have a big birthday this year, I can barely say it out loud, the thought of the number makes my heart palpitate and it's not even 40 yet!
So as long as I HAVE to be this number, I am going to do my best to look fantastic!!!
ETA: I weighed myself before I left the house and I am now 165! so yehaw that means I have lost 18
