Wow! I am in a week four of a biggest loser challenge. I knew with my health conditions the challenge would be hard! I didn’t think it would be this hard though. On weigh-in morning is the hardest. When I’ve gained, I get angry. When I just stay the same, I fell defeated.
At my first weigh-in I was 172.0#. That was August 4th.
At my second weight-in I was 173.6#. This was August 11th. So a 1.6# gain. Also a penalty.
At my third weigh-in I was back down to 172.0#. This was August 18th. No penalty but in my head I really hadn’t lost anything.
So at the most current weigh-in I was back up to 173.8#. This was August 25th. So again a gain but this time even more– a 1.8# gain. There will be a penalty as well.
I’m really at a loss. I’ve been trying to be more active (and meeting my steps goals daily). My diet hasn’t been horrible lately. I have started wondering if this challenge is bad for me. Only because I find myself contemplating anorexia again. It has been a long time since I’ve had to worry about those thoughts. I’ve been unhappy with my weight but those haven’t been thoughts I have had. Someday I will share with you the story of my eating disorder.
I guess this week I will really focus on tracking what I’m eating/drinking. I will make sure I walk 1 mile a day, 4 days this week. I also want to try doing dance workouts. I recently found a YouTube channel (Dance Fitness with Jessica) and thought I would try choosing one routine for the week! I also need to increase my water in-take. I know I am way below where I need to be.
Have you ever done a biggest loser challenge? How did it go for you? What tricks and tips do you have?
Until next time– keep flying high!
