Below the Yellow Line

IF I was on the Biggest Loser Ranch, I would have fallen below the YELLOW LINE

We had our weigh-in today at work. Everyone lost!!! I think its great and I want so very much to be happy for them, and I am BUT reality has set in. I have to lose almost twice what they do to get the same results. Most of the girls weigh 80 - 100 pounds less than I do and they lost almost the same amount of weight as I did. They certainly lost a higher percentage of weight than me. Good job girls! I am proud of you.

I am eating well, tracking my food, keeping my snacks to a minimum (darn it!!). I'm down to one jug of coffee a day. Getting most of my water in...most of the time. I haven't had pop in forever (Sunday), and today was the first day I've had chocolate since Monday.

I guess its time to start the exercising. The dreaded, sweaty, time away from my couch and everything that is comfy, exercising. I know I need to do it. I MUST do it to get this weight off of me. I am hoping to find something that peaks/keeps my interest. I have a yoga for beginners DVD I want to do. I wouldn't mind trying Zumba. Aye Ca rumba! I have a treadmill that is just sitting. It's time to dust it off, put on my running shoes and get to of my lazy butt.

Somethings I have to remember: I didn't put this weight on overnight, I'm not going to take it off overnight. This is MY journey and what/how they do CAN NOT affect how I do going forward. I must keep moving forward. We are there to support one another and even though this is a competition, it can not about the money for me. It has to be about restoring my health and living like a healthy 38 year old should.
It's time to start planning and preparing meals and packing my lunches the night before. It is so much easier to grab a carrot that's all ready cut up or to grab a bowl of salad that's all ready made. I am going to start cooking a couple meals on the weekend and those left-overs will be my lunches and dinners throughout the first part of the week.

This is the start of my journey. OK, so technically its the RE-start of my journey, but this time its baby steps and figuring it out as I go. Varying my exercise and meals to stave off the boredom. This isn't going to be easy and I can not quit this time.
