Biggest Loser - Week 1 Results

The scale went in the right direction!  I am down exactly 2 lbs! 

I followed the Ideal Protein diet faithfully (except for the consumption of alcohol) all week after not having a successful weekend.  This diet is not easy but it does give you results.  I have to constantly remind myself of this every time I feel like sneaking something I shouldn't be eating.

When I first started this diet on March 31, my starting weight was 172 lbs, so to date I have lost 15.6 lbs!  I still need to lose around another 15 lbs but man, it's not easy! 

I have a very intense love for food.  I love cooking it, eating it, watching TV programs about and even day dream about it!  I also have a HUGE sweet tooth.  This is why most of my ideal protein products I have purchased are chocolate of some sort.  Chocolate protein shakes, chocolate pudding, chocolate/peanut butter bars and cookies and cream bars.  I'm pretty sure if these products weren't offered I wouldn't be doing so well.  No question.

Good luck to all my other Biggest Loser participants!  I hope your scale went in the right direction for you too!


Starting Weight - 158.4 lbs

Biggest Loser Challenge

I have joined a biggest loser challenge with 14 of my on-line friends.  These are girls I've "met" and got to know while planning my destination wedding 2.5 years ago - they are my fellow DW brides.  The challenge runs for 8 weeks, starting today June 3rd and ending July 29th.

I really need some extra motivation and accountability because, damn, these passed couple of weeks have been a complete bust!

For the last 2 weeks I have been horrible and not followed my Ideal Protein diet at all.  It's hard to believe I haven't gained more than 2 ounces.  Seriously.  How did I eat hot fudge sundaes, MacDonald's, Burger King, pizza, among many other poor food choices and not gain any weight?  Pure luck I think.

Well, this is about to change.  I still have another 15-20 lbs I would like/need to lose.  I hoping this challenge provides the support, encouragement and motivation that I have been so lacking lately.  A pot of $300.00 going to the winner always helps with motivation too! 

Good luck to all my fellow Biggest Losers!
