Red Team Rocks!

After another weigh in I am down three more pounds.  I worked super hard this week so I was really hoping for five.  I know it seems silly but I want to hit that mark just for one week. 

Last week my trainer told us to think about someone that we lost and dedicate last week to them.  That's what I did and every time I wanted to quit I thought about my mom and what a fighter she was.  I know I've got some of that in me too.  Somehow I had that little bit more in me to push harder.  As far as the competition goes...we are in last place which does not make our trainers happy.  I know tonight's workout is going to be brutal.

What I have found surprising is that I am feeling good and I have so much more energy.   Above is a picture from the first week of my team.  I'll post another one at the end, where we will all be looking a whole lot thinner.  I'm also surprised at how close our team is getting.  We are becoming a little family and they will be people that I will keep in touch with after this program is done.

I want to be a loser

I am heading in a new direction with this blog.  I still want to share my adventures with my girls but I also need to journal about my own weight loss story. 

A good friend and I have joined in a competition.  We have become part of the Largest Loser.  I had no idea what I was in for!  This is week 2 so we have weighed in twice after working out like I never thought that I could.  I have really pushed myself  and I am surprised at what I am capable of.  The reason I am starting on week two is because last week was rough.  Everything ached and it was difficult to even walk.  This week is better but I'm still feeling it.

I am not the gym kind of girl.  I don't like to run either.  I have to admit, I can be lazy.  I needed to make a healthy change in my life so I'm doing it and my team is helping me through it.  I have a feeling this experience will be life changing and I can't wait to share it.  Wish me luck.
 Results so far~
Week one-7.1 pounds
