Weigh-in #2

Eek, it’s been a whole week since I’ve posted! It’s started to get a lot darker a lot faster this week, and it’s definitely taking a toll on my energy level. The insane construction (THREE lane closures) on the way home is nearly doubling my commute, and it’s pitch dark by the time I get home. All I want to do is throw on PJs and flop on the couch. Not good.

I was anticipating a terrible weigh-in this week since I didn’t track whatsoever (and thus learned far too late that I was eating a snack that contained 50% of my daily sodium levels). I went to the gym this morning and had a great time working out for 45 minutes, doing my best to sweat off a few extra ounces. Thank goodness for every-other-Friday off!

When I stepped on the scale, I was literally praying that I wouldn’t see a gain–and my prayer was answered! My weight was 226.4! This is a total percentage loss of 1.99% in two weeks. Melissa is still killing it, with a 4.13% loss!

Goals for next week: track my food and move my big behind. My goal is to exercise Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at minimum. Eventually, I want to work out at least five days per week.

I have 10 weeks left to lose 15.4 pounds, and I KNOW I can do it. It may be hard, but it’s worth it.

About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.

    I know I did – now when I start finding myself lagging or giving myself excuses, it has a name. Then I can just say “Oh, that’s the Resistance. Fat girl’s best friend. Gotta get moving.” (I talk to myself a lot sometimes.) I get what you mean about the weather change – Resistance.
