My Biggest Loser Last Chance Workout Session… Down and ready!

1 Comment

I signed up for this contest at work… called the Turkey Buster Challenge.  It started the Monday before Thanksgiving.  Basically, I figured that it couldn’t have come at a better time.  I’m in the middle of my journey here, ya know?  I mean, next year, I won’t need to join any contest, I’ll already be at goal!  So, this contest should be mine to win, right?  (talk about a positive attitude).  Well, I’m a bit competitive.  A bit?  Well, ALOT.  It’s distracting, actually.  It’s ALOT distracting.  I’m kind of going a bit nuts.  

First, it’s a FAIR contest.  Meaning, they are basing the win on percentage.  Uggh!  I’m HUGE!  Well, LESS huge than I WAS, but come on now!  I am still the largest person in the contest.  I think I started the contest at 281.4 lbs on November 26, 2012.  Before New Years, I weighed in at 254.5, but as of this morning, I was 257.5 and I do NOT KNOW WHY!  I have been exercising my butt off!  I ate cookies on New Years, but I did NOT eat 6 lbs of them (yes, I was higher, but lost some)…  and I have been TRYING to get back down to at least the 254.5 ever since.  I had actually wanted to be even less than the 254.5 for the final weigh in of tomorrow and well, I haven’t a clue if that’s even possible at this point, however, with all the workouts I’ve done (food has totally be ON POINT).  I mean, I feel that one morning, I’m probably going to drop 10 lbs!  Seriously!  (probably the day AFTER the final weigh in)

Anyway, the mystery of being a woman and the water weight or whatever mystery thing that goes on inside us that I just can NOT explain.  I’m all about the numbers.  Take in less calories, burn off more calories… I know my BMR.  I mean, I know the math… I know what should be happening.  It’s not happening.  It’s going to happen.  I truly will be gutted if I don’t win this contest… and it’s not even for the prize (which I’m not even privy to.  It’s probably a $10 donut gift card… REALLY!)… I just feel that this is MY YEAR.  Ya know?  I mean, I’ve lost a PERSON, practically… shouldn’t I win a weight loss contest with all that going on in my life? 

I know it’s not about the win… My competitive nature… it’s an illness… lol  I can’t wait for this contest to be over.  I don’t think I’ll sign up for any more contests… At least until I hear of another that falls before I hit my goal… I mean, it is MY YEAR, right?
