Let me just say, movement is heaven. My arm has FINALLY loosened up to where I can straighten it out. The pain was so bad yesterday morning when I woke up that I could have tossed my breakfast. It gave me headaches practically all day. Then I got pissed enough over the pain to force it straight and kept doing that all day. Now today? It’s like a new arm.
The first weigh-in for the Biggest Loser Challenge was last night. I wasn’t happy with the scale. Not one bit. I have gained back literally 30 lbs. from my lowest weight. But I’m not going to beat myself up over it. I did it, it’s over, and now I’m on to losing. 30 lbs. DAMN. Yeah, move on Lisa.
There are approx. 25-30 people who signed up for the challenge. Kind of good odds for being one of the top 3 women, right? PLUS I feel like I have an advantage. The challenge really isn’t offering much in the way of exercising or dieting at this point. Each Tuesday night (starting next week) there is a class on weight, exercise, supplements, etc. but for now, we are on our own. There has to be a decent % of people who have no clue what they’re doing, eating or exercise-wise. To me, what I know already is an advantage. And that gives me a week up on those who don’t know much about what to do.
We are only weighing in last night to start the challenge, and again on March 28th to end the challenge. That’s it. And they may be going by % lost instead of just lbs. to be fair, not sure yet.
I’m really liking the mindset that I need to be in to know I can do this. It’s a ‘real-life’ challenge, but yet, when I’m at the gym and see others there, I don’t know who is and who isn’t in the challenge, nor do I know how much they work out or what they’re eating. So it’s real, yet secretive and I have to make sure I’m working out harder than they could possibly be to actually achieve one of the highest losses of the women.
I wanna be a LOSER…A big ‘ol loser.
