Biggest Loser Challenge (Week 4)

Hey Hummingbirds!

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.

img_1169At my first weigh-in I was 172.0#.  That was August 4th.

img_1183At my second weight-in I was 173.6#.  This was August 11th.  So a 1.6# gain.  Also a penalty.

img_1211At 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.

img_1263So 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!
