Biggest Loser 6!

Time to stop moping about being fat, stop eating like a fat person, stop looking like a fat person, and get healthy! This is me talking to myself in the mirror, by by the way, not me talking to you. It all started a year and a half ago when I joined the Biggest Loser competition put on by my friend Tiburon. No wait, actually it started a couple of years before that when my metabolism screeched to a halt and I kept on eating like Michael Phelps training for the Olympics. Not a good combination. It all came to a head after I had Beck and I weighed the most I've ever weighed. And I decided to join the Biggest Loser. Sent in my $25, joined Weight Watchers online, weighed in every week and sent my weight to Tib the B.L.M.C. (Biggest Loser Master of Ceremonies, in case you're not up on your acronyms), and at the end of 3 months, I was down 18 lbs and 2 pants sizes. Flash forward another 9 months, Christmas was over and I had gained back about 10 of those lbs. And the Big K was nearing his 5th month of pregnancy. So we decided to do it together this time. He joined a Biggest Loser competition at work just pour hommes, we both joined Weight Watchers, we started working out 4-5 times a week, and at the end he was down 22 lbs and I was down 11.

So now, here it is, another year later. I've gone pretty well at not gaining back all the weight. I set a maximum weight allowance for myself so that any time I went over that, I had to diet. But as long as I stayed under that weight, I could eat what I wanted within reason. And it worked pretty well until about a month ago. Holiday season began and I stopped watching the scale. So now I'm up about 4 lbs above my maximum weight and it's time for me to get back in shape. Plus, I'd like, ideally, to lose about 10 lbs from where I am right now, 15 in my dreams. So I'm joining The Biggest Loser 6 on January 9th. Who is with me?

I know you were talking to me, and I deserved it!

I'm in, and I'm hoping it's just the motivation I need to get my rear in gear.

I am really, seriously considering this.

I'm so there! Christmas goodies have not been kind to me this year either :(

I joined. Hopefully I can get down 20-30 lbs by April. ( wow, is that even realistic?)

Anyone need a workout buddy>?

You look absolutely amazing just as you are! But, your blog post does sound hauntingly familiar. Isn't there a way that I could just give you $25.00 and you could lose my extra weight for me?
