Biggest Loser

Sounds like an insult, right? Ok, so I am not a big loser...but I am trying to win a current Biggest Loser competition. Some girlfriends and I (you know the ones that I like to drink craft with and cackle like old hens at Applebee's) decided to do a friendly biggest loser competition. All of us (but one who doesn't need to lose an ounce, she just wanted to be healthy) have baby weight to lose.  The stakes aren't very high, but yet they truly are high. Winner gets a pedicure paid for by the others, but also wins a new smokin' hot body and a HEALTHY life. Pretty dang important. 

Anywho,  I started trying to lose weight a few months back. At first I was doing really well, then Birthdays, Anniversary, Easter, Mother's day, Memorial Day all came along and the food tasted SOOOO good. Once I start, its like I can't make myself quit. My one cheat day turned into a week of having a "treat" every night (CURSE YOU SONIC AND YOUR DANG 1/2 PRICE SHAKES).
Every. single. time. the Girls and I got together, we complained about baby weight (as we shoveled forks full of sopapilla cheesecake in our mouths) so here we are doing something about it!

We are on day 3. Every time I want something bad for me to eat...I just look at my gnarly gut and all the sudden I am not hungry! I am also loving the support we are giving each other via text, fb chat and just good ol' fashion bantering. This lovely motivating contest will run for 6 weeks to start...all of us with different goals. Some big, some small. Mine is an XL goal!  I sure hope it doesn't take me a year to lost the 50 ish pounds I want to lose! (I must be super excited, my exclamation points are a little out of control)

One of the girls used an awesome analogy, She said, " I need to lose the equivalent of 1.5 of my baby." Well, when you put it THAT way, I need to lose the equivalent of BOTH my kids. Who's the chunky monkey now? That's right, ME!!! 

I am perfectly happy trying to blame my loud, time consuming sweet innocent children for my being bigger than I need to be, but the reality is that my lack of self-control keeps me this way.  I am so happy my husband is behind me on this and making an effort to be healthy too. We have joined a gym and are making smarter eating choices! 

I have no one to blame but myself really. But here is to making a change and having super supporting girlfriends to go through this battle together!

Now, if you will excuse me... I HAVE A WHOLE DRAWER OF SPOONS TO THROW OUT!!!
