5 posts

5 posts is all I could muster... WOW.. In all those weeks I managed to blog a zillion times on myadoptiongeography, but only 5 times here. Oh well. A bit frenzied and fixated on mainly one thing right now I guess. Anyway the result of my weeks of trying to lose weight??? Well I only "tried" up until about three weeks ago. Then I pretty much let my guard down. Well i managed to lose 20 pounds. Which hopefully is enough to get at least 3rd place. 1/4 of the pot and a massage. Will post when I know for sure...

Long time between posts

SO the Healthy Weigh Biggest Loser contest is well under weigh!! I got a reprieve for 3 solid weeks. First our coordinater/judge/ fitness program manger here at duPont had a bit of a scare and went in to preterm labor. YIKES. So we had the week off. No weigh ins that week. Let me see that would have been the week of Thanksgiving... ( My first thought after being concerned for her health was I WANT PIZZA) So I had Pizza. I did not completely go crazy that week. I ate a good Thanksgovong meal in moderation. Then week two I spend in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan visiting my hopefully soon to be daughter. Again I did not go crazy but I enjoyed the bakery goods, and lagman, and beshbarmak and all the local Kyrgyz foods. Then we are on to this week! I made an extra grand effort over this last weekend to watch everything I was eating. Had lots of yogurt and granola and hit the wii, the wii fit, the dance revolution, and the healthy weigh gym extra hard for a few days... And drum roll please... I am down another 5 pounds. YEAH!!!!!!! Currently I am sitting at the number 2 spot on this Biggest Loser Contest. We have another 6 weeks. I will need to step up the exercise as the next two weeks are full of holiday good foods!

Week One Day One The Beginning

So here at Alfred I. duPont hospital for children we have a fitness room. Aptly named Healthy Weigh. The fitness manager decided to put on a Biggest Loser contest. (Right before the holidays how unfair is that!!!) Any way. Have done this before... Know how it works. ANd could use the extra cash. I originally thought it was a much bigger pot though. I thought the original paperwork said $25 per person. Today I paid $15. Quite a significant difference. But hey anything is better then nothing.

So I weighed in with Lauren this am.... and as my new wii fit board put it "uh oh" That scale is definitely tipped. Not going to reveal my actual weight but I will keep track of the losses as we go along. Maybe I will even sneak in an awful photo here just to remind myself how Awful I look right now. And feel!!!
