Shoot, shoot, shoot! Monday morning I was down 4 (YES 4!) more lbs then this weigh in Tuesday morning....but Monday night I went out with a friend and had salad, bread, pasta, cheesecake and too many beers to count....DUMB. Frown Sigh....
At least I was still down a little, but I was so excited Monday morning and then Tuesday morning I was bummed.....gotta get back to the gym...all weekend off from Bingo, so gotta have a sweating marathon Saturday and Sunday.

Pretty happy with this week. I watched my food and even went running at the gym twice. Smile I am 2.4lbs away from getting under the next 10lb mark....I would LOVE to make it under that by next weeks weigh in. So gonna try super hard. I have volleyball tomorrow night and really busy the rest of the week, but should be able to go to the gym Saturday afternoon (but I work 9 hours at bingo that night...so we will see if I have enough energy) but for sure will be able to go Sunday and get a good workout in.

Gotta keep my eye on the prize!

2012 Biggest Loser - Week 1 WeighIn

January 15th, 2012 at 09:21 am

We started the Biggest Loser again for 2012. Only 4 people in it this time. $10 per person so the winner will get $40. It ends the week before I go to Vegas, so I am hoping to lose 10 more pounds (lost 7lbs in the last round) by the end. Then I would be down almost 20 lbs and that would feel great!!

After the first week I am in last place, but I weighed myself today and I was down 4 more lbs from last weeks weighin, so I just need to be good for 2 more days till the next weigh in and I should be in first this week.

Last night I was working at Bingo and everyone was getting an order together for McDonalds, but I said no and ate the Lean Cuisine I had brought. Win for $$ and win for my waist! So proud of myself while everyone ate their greasy cheeseburgers!


Week One
Pounds Lost this week = -.8
Total pounds lost = .8
% weight loss = .45%
Place = 4th out of 4 people

I won the Biggest Loser!

December 24th, 2011 at 08:31 am

We did the biggest loser again at work. We started in October and this last Tuesday was the last day. I won! I lost 7lbs and won $50! Normally I would do the updates on here, but just didn't get around to doing it. We are going to do another round in January so I will try to keep the weekly updates on here. Not sure what I am going to do with my $50 yet....

Deadwood Challenge

January 15th, 2011 at 11:21 am

My husband and I and a friend are going to Deadwood for my husbands birthday in March. My DH and I are doing a challenge, for every pound we lose we get $5 extra dollars for the trip. And we both have goals and if we meet the goal we get an extra $100 on top of the $5 per lb. My goal is 20lbs (it is supposed to be a hard goal). So far I have lost 4lbs, so $20! Yeah! Gonna be very hard to reach my goal, but I am trying hard. DHs goal was 14 lbs, and he lost 7lbs the first week. What a jerk....lol. He is so skinny anyways and just thinks about dieting and magically loses weight.....sigh..... Anyways looks like he will easily reach his goal, up to me to make mine happen too. Gonna go to the gym soon here and will probably do my biggest loser on the Wii later too. Oh and I should shovel too, but it is sooooo cold.....brrrr! Wish me luck and will power!

Hmmm....not going anywhere in a hurry here......
Had my first personal training session today. We did a weigh in, measurements and fitness testing life pull ups, sit ups, 1/2 mile on the treadmill, pushups and stretching. I think it went well and hope it will help give me the push I need to get some real results.

Lets get Physical - Physical! I want to get Physical! Let's Get into Physical!

November 14th, 2010 at 09:37 pm

Well we got our Wii today with my award money. We were going to wait till Black Friday sales, but honestly I don't feel like getting up at 4am to stand in the cold for a Wii when I am getting it for free anyways. So we got the Wii for $199, it was the special edition red one that comes with a controler with Motion Plus ($40), numchuck ($20), Mario Bros game ($50), and Wii Sports ($50), so $160 worth of stuff comes with it. Then we got the Wii Fit Plus game with the Wii Balance Board for $100. So all of that was covered by my $300 award checks. Then out of pocket we got a second controller $40, second numchuck $20, and a charger so we don't have to buy batteries for the controllers $20. So about $100 out of pocket, ($80 plus $20 in taxes). We are really enjoying it, played it for 3 hours when we got home. I hope it will be a nice little extra to my workouts and much better for me and DH then sitting on the couch watching TV or playing on the laptop.

I also signed up for a personal trainer. I go to sign the papers tomorrow, but already called and confirmed I am ready for a change. It will be once a week for 6 months and a discounted price of $160 a month. Plus I can bring a friend for free.....too bad none of my friends live here and my Mom is in Mexico for the winter......I may see if DH wants to go since it is free just to check it out. The Wii told him he needs to GAIN 20lbs......wth......lol. They train you once a week and give you assignment workouts for the week and also weigh in and do measurements each week. I am excited for all the new positive things! Back to work tomorrow, but only a 4 day week and then I have 10 days off! Whoo hoo!

I did a free trial day with the personal trainer on Wednesday and still HURT 5 days later! Oh my!

Glad I lost this week, I thought I was gonna go up because I have been a P I G ! Errrr! Today was a good day though, worked out during my lunch break and shared a meal with DH for supper.
We are going on a casino trip the first week of Dec, DH said he will give me $10 of his spending money for every lb I lose between now and then. If I gain any, then he gets $20 of my money per lb......MOTIVATION! My goal is to lose 7lbs = $70.....it is a steep goal, but doable!

Hopefully the work will show up next week. I am still in first place, but only by a little bit. Gonna stay away from the Halloween candy and run, run, run again. Hopefully my coworkers will be sneaking candy from their kids. Smile

New Biggest Loser - I WILL WIN!

September 28th, 2010 at 05:55 pm

So the new Biggest Loser started today at work. It runs from 9/28/10 to 12/14/10. There are 7 participants, so the winner gets $70! I am so motivated and dedicated this time. I hit the gym today and it felt good. Today was my last morning with naughty breakfast (had to get a meal in before the first weight in...heehhee), and Thursday is my last day with pop. I am going to set aside $20 a week for the money I was spending on pop and breakfasts. I am not sure what I am going to do with the money yet.....but something fun for me.....maybe new clothes after I lose some weight or maybe some new rollerblades or a new bike. New breakfast is fruit, yogurt or cottage cheese. I'm excited to be started on this!

MOH dress and oh my gosh time to hit the gym.....

September 27th, 2010 at 10:53 am

This weekend I traveled to visit the bride to be in a wedding that I am the MOH in. We got her dress picked out and bought as well as the bridesmaids. My dress was $216.....I was prepared to pay up to $200, but it still was a bit of a shock, I guess I was really hoping for $100 - $150. Oh well, that was not the worst part......I am the MOH and there are 3 other BMs. Two of them ordered a size 0. Yup, you could add them together and they are still a size 0. My dress is a size 14. I am feeling pretty depressed about it. I don't feel like a size 14.....my measurements were bust 36.5, waist 33.5 and hips 41.5. Luckily the wedding is not till May 2011, so I have about 8 months to change that, but even if I kicked butt I would say the best I would hope for is a size 8-10. PUKE.
Ok, that is enough of my debbiedowner......here is a pic of the dress.
http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/6575/
The color is a teal color on their color chart called oasis. At least it is chiffon and flowy so will hide my tummy. DH is helping me make a training routine to focus on my abs, arms and back. I am quitting pop on 10/1/10 so I have just a few more days and then it will be gone....no diet pop either, just done with it. Me and the gym are about to get real tight real quick. Wish me luck!

Oh also it was a very cheap weekend other then the dress so that was good. I stayed with my friend, so no hotel costs, and her parents paid for all of my meals for the weekend as well as drinks. So only the dress and one tank of gas were paid for by me.

30 Day Workout Bet

July 17th, 2010 at 04:31 pm

I bet my husband that I would work out 30 days in a row. That would put my 30th day right before we leave for Vegas. If I work out for 30 days in a row I get an extra $100 to play in Vegas. If I miss even one day then my husband gets $100 of MY money to play in Vegas. Today is day 6 and it is going awesome so far. Yesterday I ran for a full 30 minutes straight, so I am getting my stamina up quickly which makes me happy! Time for me to go to the gym to complete day 6, gonna go watch Cops! Smile

Biggest Loser Last and First Days

June 3rd, 2010 at 08:20 pm

So the last BL ended on 6-1-10. I lost 2 lbs and got 4th place out of 8 people. Not so good.
The new BL started on 6-2-10. This time there are 9 people, so $90 to win! They are doing it a little different this time. There will be 2 mid term wins, one in July (win $10), one in beginning of August (win $20) and then the finale in beginning of September (win $60)! I have been trying really hard and even drank a DIET pop today! I am super addicted to Moutain Dew so that was a big step for me to voluntarily drink diet. Also had celery and strawberries for snacks. Smile Found out DH's 10 year reunion is in Aug and just 3 days before we go to Vegas......incentive anyone?!

Sigh. Up 2lbs from last week. I have been doing so good too! I finally got back to the gym last week and had great 20-30 min runs on the treadmill 6 days in a row. I took one day off and then had our first softball game last night. I did super good, 1 walk, 3 base hits, 1 double and 1 triple.....so I was R U N N I N G my butt off. Apparently not doing enough. Blah. 2 more weeks to try to make some headway, but I think winning is out of the question now. Frown

No change for me this week. But some others have gone up so I am in 6th place instead of 7th. I am VERY excited to report that I finally started back at the gym this morning. My goal was just to run for 5 min as I have not been to the gym in close to 3 months and was sure I had lost all stamina, so I wanted to start out slow so that I would not get discouraged right away. Well I ran the 5 min and was still feeling fine, so I kept going, 10, 15 and ended at 20 min! YEAH! 20 min run on my first day back, really couldn't be happier with how that went! I have set up a new workout plan to make sure I reach my first goal and keep going to be in amazing shape by the time I have to be a MOH in May 2011. I added some goals below. Of course this session of BL will be over by then.....but the ladies at my work are always up for another round!
1)Down 2 more by 5-27-10 (Deadwood Trip)
2)Down 25 more by 11-20-10 (Guest at a wedding)
3)Down 20 more by 5-14-11 (MOH at wedding)

No change from last week. On the plus side softball practice started this week, so that gets me out and moving. One day DH and I walked to softball and that is about 3.5 miles. Also today I FINALLY got off my butt and went to the gym. (How embarassing I have not gone since February) I did the ellytical for an hour, felt really good!

My scale died so I went and got a new one, we use my scale for the "official" weighins. Apparently my old scale was a little off cause it showed all 8 of us had gained this week. Part of it could be Easter, but I really think that the scale was off before and now this one if probably more accurate. Either way, not a good week. I am bummed I have not been able to maintain my weight loss from last round of BL. At least it is nice outside now, DH and I have gone for walks every day this week. But I really need to get back into the gym........

% weight loss = 1.68%
Place = 4th out of 8 people
Total down since original BL = 5

The week 1 weigh in was while I was in Mexico so this was my first weight in for this BL. This round will end May 24th. There are more people this time, and they also seem a lot more motivated. The first week everyone lost and one person lost 6lbs! I went up since the last BL had ended but am still down overall. I need to get my act together now that we are back from vaca. We are going grocery shopping tomorrow so going to get lots of fruits and veggies! Have to watch out for those chocolate bunnies and cadberry eggs though!
Also we are NOT eating out in April. We have been trying to do a month with no eating out for some time now and been very, very bad about it. But DH is in charge of no eating out for the month, 2 days down!
I found out today I am going to be the Matron of Honor in a wedding in May 2011 so gotta get looking sexy! Smile

Total pounds lost = 11
% weight loss = 6.08%
Place = 1st out of 6 people

YEAH! I won! I am so excited! The person that got 2nd lost 10lbs so it was very close with us two. I am proud of myself for keeping that weight loss from last week. So I won the prize then of $60. Normally I would do something responsible with my winnings like put it in savings. But we are going out of town this weekend for a casino weekend with family so I am going to treat myself for my hard work and take it with to play.

I checked with my coworkers and they want to do another BL starting next week already. This time 8 people have signed up instead of 6, so that will be $80 up for grabs. Guess I better enjoy my weekend off of BL before next week!

YES! I have taken the lead with just one week to go! Having my wisdom teeth helped a LOT! So I am super excited. The person in 2nd is at 4% lost. So I think if I keep my weight loss at 11lbs or higher I will win. Have to try really hard to not pig out for a week.

Biggest Loser Week 9, 10, 11

February 4th, 2010 at 05:58 pm

Wow I have been really slacking on posting my BL updates......Week 9 and 10 I think I stayed the same.......Here is the current update for week 11.

Week Eleven
Pounds Lost this week = 3
Total pounds lost = 3
% weight loss = 1.67%
Place = 2nd out of 6 people

This is the weigh in from 2 days ago at work. As of today at home weigh in I was down 6lbs (but I weigh in at home sans clothes.....don't think work would appreciate that too much!). I am pumped to be down 6 and feel like I really have some momentum going. The one person at my work who is currently beating my is super hardcore right now and they have been doing REALLY good with their food. So I have been working hard and hitting the gym A LOT! Also I have cut my pop intake drastically, that has always been a major downfall of mine, so I am proud of that too.
