Yes, I've grown tired of my BWHA! HA! HA! I'm retiring the count, but I will continue to post my results each week.
This week I'm extra EXCITED about the results! After all that I went through last week, I lost 7 pounds! Woo! Hoo! That brings me to 52 pounds!
Now, those of you that have been keeping score at home, you may be scratching your heads and thinking, "I thought she was at 48 pounds? If she lost 7, that would put her at 55, not 52." Well, somewhere along the way, between all the differences in my home scale and the gym scale, I must have become confused. I double checked My Fitness Pal, and the official is 52.
Also, I'm done with the Biggest Loser contest - D - O - N - E! There were 2 weigh-ins left, but I'm over it. The contest has been a mess from the start - misinformation, changing information, etc. It has been anything but motivating. BUT inside every "bad experience", you can find something good; and I've found two something goods.
First, there were several days when I would have skipped the gym; but since we had to work out at least 3 days a week or be disqualified, I drug myself into the gym. I never regretted it, but I'm glad I had the extra push to get me there.
Second, I've had the opportunity to make some great new friends!
It is always important to find your silver lining and focus on it. Someone remind me of my own words the next time I'm down.
Now, let's take a look at my bracelet with its 5 charms!!! Cheshire Cat is the 50 pound charm. He's one of my favorite Disney characters, and he reminds me of how my weight is smothering the crazy gal that I am! (Philip is a bit scared. If this is the crazy being smothered, what will it be like when the full crazy comes out?! FYI, it's a good crazy. It's a fun, adventurous, full of life crazy!)
