Biggest Loser!

Tracy is finally off the show!! While I'm sure she is a nice person in her regular life, on the show she seemed to be a bit nuts. She has since lost a lot more weight and looks fantastic, no matter who you are that is a big accomplishment, so good for her.

I am still a little sad Abby is gone, although I'm sure she is doing great things, I think she is now publicly speaking to various groups about her tragedy. For those of you who don't know, Abby was a contestant on BL who lost her husband, 2 week old son, and 5 year old daughter in a car crash 5 miles from their home, the person who hit them was going over 100 miles an hour.
After all this she is one of THE most positive people I have ever seen. She is so inspiring for me. Abby was also on Ellen today and said "Even in your darkest hour, there is always hope" What an awesome person!

On another note, Thanksgiving is just around the corner, hopefully by then I will be down a total of 20lbs(or more) so that's about 7 more pounds in about 3 1/2 weeks. Then hopefully by Christmas I will be 40-50lbs down. I know that is A LOT, but in the next few weeks I'm hoping to really push myself and watch my food intake. Even though I have not made a huge dent in the scale I can definitely feel a difference in my body, in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. I just feel so much more confident, like I can anything I set my mind to.

Well, its off to bed for me. Cleaning tomorrow. Also, going to try and sit down and make a menu for our next 2 weeks-just for dinner though not all meals, since usually Josh and I aren't together during the day throughout the week since he has school.

1 month and 13lbs down.

I have decided to make a difference in my own life. I have spent most of mine doing things for other people, making sure they were happy, but now its my turn. I get to focus on me!


Josh has been so helpful with my training and change in food! We try hard not to have any temptations for me in the house, luckily he's a very healthy eater!
So far I'm down 13lbs! It hasn't been nearly as difficult as I thought it would be, the hardest part for me has been the working out regularly.
I've gotten into a routine now, so I just go and feel great while I'm there and afterwords.

My goal is to lose around 75-100 pounds. And to walk the Country Music 1/2 Marathon in Nashville,TN-(http://nashville.competitor.com/) which is in April! I am very excited to add this to my list of accomplishments, its something I've always wanted to do, but honestly never had the confidence.

I log everything on www.sparkpeople.com which is a free site where you can enter your goals, join teams, get great information, and it also has a free recipe database. It's AWESOME! I don't know what I would do without it!

I am also reading "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl" by Lisa Delaney


This is one fantastic book! Lisa gives some great advice on how to become a former fat girl!

My favorite is:
INO-Its not an option. When I want to stop the treadmill, when I want to eat a big fat cheeseburger, I just tell myself-INO, ITS NOT AN OPTION!

Here's to becoming a former fat girl!
