It's Monday...and I'm Still Motivated!!!


It's weigh in day once again. Every Monday I feel like I'm stepping on that giant Biggest Loser scale, wondering where the number will settle and what kind of progress I can report. Even though I'm weighing in by myself, it still feels like all eyes are upon me. At least I know one thing...I can't be sent home. I'm already at home! :o)
Today I can report that I've lost 1 pound for the week. I love seeing progress on the scale, but I also can tell you about progress in a different way as well. I put on a pair of pants that I haven't even thought about trying on in ages, and they are loose enough that they are starting to fall off. If I really wanted to, I could wear them out in public and be "in style" like the teenagers who wear their pants that way on purpose...but that's not me, so that pair of pants gets packed away to give to charity and I will keep trying on more things that may actually fit now!
In one week I will turn 44 years old. I'm going to be pushing extra hard, because I'd really like to see the scale dip below 180 on my birthday. The best present of all right now is that I really feel like I'm hitting my stride, more than ever before. I have more confidence and energy, and that's a gift that I will never return!
Speaking of strides, several former Biggest Loser contestants are in the middle of running the Boston Marathon right now. If you want big time motivation, go to www.bostonmarathon.org and check out how everyone is doing. Whether you've been running for a long time or are newer to it like me, you will be inspired like never before!
