Thanks for all the encouragement last week! Your kind words kept me going and working hard. It also helped to remind myself how far I've come over the years. Most people don't know that when I was in high school I was NOT thin at all. I used to wear a size 24 pants and now I am almost in a 14. So I CAN make it down to a size 10... it will just take time.
This week I have managed to put in 39 miles on my bike trainer and I still plan to ride today. I did 20 miles EARLY Thursday morning... whew! I was sweating by the time I finished.
I have also been working on drinking more water, which has actually made me feel great. I think I've done pretty well this week, so we'll see what the scale says.
Weight: -1.5 pounds
Goal: Lose one pound Thanksgiving week!
Hooray! I had been hovering at the same weight for a couple of weeks, so this loss is encouraging. Hopefully I can keep it up and try to be good this week. That means I have to avoid eating so much PIE, which is my Thanksgiving weakness!
I have to say that I was SO disappointed with this week's Biggest Loser! *sigh* I don't know if I want to watch anymore! I can't believe that Amy voted out Coleen instead of Vicki! After her great decision last week, I was shocked that she made this mistake. Vicki is NOT her friend. If two of the former blue team members fall under the line and one of them is Amy, then she is going home for sure! I think she would have had a better chance voting with the former black team members.
It's sad because Renee and Michelle are going to have a really tough time making it to the end. I don't know if I really care if any of the others win. What a bummer.
I did think that Jillian said some inspiring/wise things this week. This quote in particular struck a chord with me:
“You can tell me that you choose not to. You can tell me that you choose to quit. That you choose to be less than what you are and less than what God intended. But don’t ever tell me that you can’t do it.”
I think too often we don't try because we tell ourselves that we can't do it. Most of the time that is just not true! So how did you do this week? Who do you think is going to win the Biggest Loser and do you even care anymore?
