Holiday Trimmings Weightloss Challenge

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

I did it. I signed up for it. First ting this morning I weighed in at 143.8 on my home scale, no clothes. This afternoon I weighed in at a nice, even 146 with clothes for the challenge.

I was a little bummed because my main reason for doing this was to get use of their pool for 6 weeks. Well.... Their pool is outdoors. The indoor pools are at the other branches. I have been to the one, which is close to my house, but it is small.... Like, really small. I guess I will have to go and check out their other one, but something is telling me it is just as small.

But.... the one I went to DID have a whirl pool, steam room and sauna that works. I did that today.... which was nice.

I am just using this to challenge myself. Don't really want to win, since I don't really need a membership.... I guess their gym wasn't as nice as I thought. The one I go to for free on base is actually a lot nicer. Actually I would love to win the drawing--- $500 at our local sporting good store!! THAT would be sweet!

My challenge is going to be JUST to do my BEST and NOT QUIT!!!!!! I want to go on and weigh in every week for the next 6 weeks. I do NOT want to quit! I have m y eating under control.... DH brought home On The Border nachos and salsa and I wasn't even tempted. In fact, he and my younger son scarfed down the entire bag---- CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH, lol....

    Smaller pool = more laps, that's all! Nothing wrong with a little challenge.

    There are days when I really miss my home in FL and my gorgeous pool! But life changes, and we have to change with it! I hope you find a pool you can work with! Good luck on the challenge! The winter months can be tough and it's great that you are coming up with ways to motivate yourself!!

    Ooooooh, I hope you win the $500 drawing - that would be awesome. Good job on challenging yourself!! And, I'm really impressed that you were able to avoid the chips and salsa - one of my weaknesses.

    I'm glad you're doing this...and for the right reasons! I would have been bummed about the pool, too.

    Rock on!
