Biggest Loser Blog Edition

I'm resurrecting this blog for my latest get real attempt at losing this weight. But for the first time in a long time I feel like this is the time. I joined WW 5 weeks ago and am down 8.2 pounds with 21 left to go to get to my minimum goal.

But I could feel myself starting to slip. Getting a bag of caramels and not counting the points cause "they're not real food, they're like gum or a mint" UHHHHHH NO!!!!! Or skipping several workouts in a row cause I was tire. Get over it already, you're always tired.

Then someone linked to Angie who is hosting a Biggest Loser contest and it just felt like the right thing to do. So here I am. Committed to hard core for the next 3 months. I know I can reach my goals if I stick with it for the whole three months.

So here's my starting point and my goals.

Starting Weight 181 Goal Weight 160
Waist 36.5 Goal 33
Hips 42 Goal 38
Thigh 25.5 Goal 23
Arm 13 Goal 12

And because this is never just about the weight or size for me, I'm throwing in some fitness goals.

3 mile time 36 min Goal 33 min
Pushups (full) 12 Goal 25

My weigh in day is on Tuesday but will change to Monday next week. I will take measurements and fitness tests on the first of each month. And I will create a sidebar as soon as I get DH to show me how :)

Let's get started!!!

Awesome! You are doing so well already!!!! I got you all linked up.

I find super simple carbs like caramels and candy are like crack and you keep grapping for more! I've gotta steer clear!

I am one of those candy eating "can't just have one'ers" as well.

Not any more though.

This is my get real challenge too!!


Today is the day!

I also brought my blog back to life just for this! And we're starting around the same weight - I'm at 187.2 these days and my goal is 140... I've got a ways to go! Congrats on getting back in the game for this challenge and I hope you're having an awesome first day of BLBE!

Congratulations for taking that first step to get back on track.
This will be an awesome experience for us if we give it our all.
I wish you a good journey :)

Welcome to the challenge! I'm so excited!

And I noticed apples and peanut butter on your previous post...don't ever try apples and Nutella. It's my downfall!
