A needed push/progress/future...

Since January I have lost 25 lbs and have kept them off but the past month or so has been really hard. I have gained a lb or two then lost a few then gained a few. I have made NO progress this week and I have felt out of sorts. I have lost the mojo and miss it big time.

What started my major progress last time was the CM Biggest Loser contest... I came in second. I was close and the contest really drove me to push myself. Well today was my weigh in for The Biggest Loser 2... per her scale I was 173.6. My scale runs alittle less than hers and I weighed in at 171.

My goal for this contest obviously is to come in first not second this time around :) hehe.... The other goals - get down another 20lbs, ton up, be the best me I can be and help push the other ladies to do just as great... I want everyone to succeed... I want the competition!

SO I decided I needed to reevaluate where I am right now. So first I figured out my new BMI... 32. Yes that says at 173.6 lbs I am still considered OBESE... not overweight... OBESE... I hate that damn BMI!

Second I redid my measurements. I havent done them since end of April. There isnt much of a difference in my measurements over hte past month or so but looking at the big picture I have made a considerable leap body wise. I am offically now a size 12... not a 16. Since the beginning - I have lost 5in at my bust, 6in on my stomach and 4.5 inches from my hips. Not too shabby.

So time to find my mojo. Time to get back into the swing of things. Time for me to be good to me again. Time for me to again worry about me and put me first.

I havent been dealing with stress well lately either - I miss the happy high feeling I had before when I was running religiously. I handled life better then.


  1. I weigh in today. I want to thank you for your honesty as you progress. I have managed to lose 20 pounds in two years. Not a steady decline by no means. I'll lose 10 pounds in three months and then keep in off for another six months and then lose again. Please don't beat yourself up for stopping the loss for a bit. You have made great progress this year. I know I won't win the contest but I love having you around for the competition and support.

  2. Candace - thanks for the commment. I fell most of the time that Im the only one paying any attention to my words... which is sometimes a good thing because I dont mind putting my life out there since I dont feel like anyone will read about it anyways :)
