I lost 2.4 pounds this past week. I'm a little disappointed, but I guess I can't complain. I have to think about two pounds of ground beef or something like that. It makes it seem like a bigger accomplishment. As far as I know I am still in the lead. Everyone says that I will win. A couple of people opted not to weigh in today due to cheating over the weekend. We are allowed two "no weigh" days. We have 3 weeks to go.
I just love the comments I get (I'm being sarcastic). Things like "I could never give up ___" or "you're just good at losing weight"(Like that is supposed to be a compliment. It sounds like they are complimenting me for yo-yo dieting! I'm also good at gaining it back too, in case they haven't noticed!) or "I have such and such medical problem that keeps me from losing" or "You have more willpower than I do". I think there are two kinds of people, those who "wish" their weight away, and those who actively do something about it. Most of the time I fit in the first category. It is hard to make changes in your diet and to exercise. A lot of times it's not fun. There is a saying "anything worth having is worth working hard for". If I ever get to my goal weight, I will know that it didn't come easy and that I worked hard for it. For some reason, there are a lot of people, myself included, that look at people who have lost weight and say "it must be nice". Like that person didn't have to do anything but wish themselves thin and it happened.
OK, I went on a rant there. This week's challenge at work is to exercise 3 x a week for 20 min each time. I started yesterday by walking on a treadmill for about 40 min. I'd love to do that more often, but it is at my in laws and I don't always have someone to watch the boys.
