I'm still on track!

I haven't written in a while. I've been busy, but don't worry I have been sticking to my diet like a champ! I only lost one pound this week, but I am not worried because I have been exercising a LOT this week and I know that I am building muscle (which weighs more than fat).

My goal this week was to work off my breakfast. Breakfast tends to be a slim fast shake and a piece of fruit. That is about 200 - 250 calories. If I can work off that amount each day I am well on my way to lose weight. Not only am I eliminating a meal, but I am revving up my metabolism.

At work they have The Biggest Loser Club starting on 2/1 and ending on 3/31. Everyone signs up by the 1st with a $10 registration fee, gets divided up into teams, and weighed weekly. If you gain weight you pay a penalty of $1 per pound. If you miss a weigh in you have to pay too. The team that loses the most weight divides the pot and the person who loses the most gets all of the penalty money. I am really excited to do this because there is NOTHING like competition to get me going. Wish me luck!

This competition will be good for you, because you're right..with money and your pride on the line, what other motivation do you possibly need?
