Biggest Loser Work Contest

Thursday, October 02, 2008

They are doing a work "Biggest Loser" Contest where anyone who wants to participate throws in money and then weighs in and at Christmas whoever has lost the highest percentage gets all the money. While I would delight in taking everyone's money, I have decided not to play in the game and continue instead to work on this the healthy way.

I know that if it were a contest, I would probably just revert to bad old habits for weight loss like not eating at all in order to win. I have decided this is not a competition for me and I feel really good about it. Spite used to be a great motivator, but I feel too content for that now.

They can all have their contest, but I guarantee that I will be the one who truly ends up winning!

    I think your doing a wise thing, as this is a lifestyle change, sudden weight loss in this catergory is unhealthy and gives many more problems like figure distortion (lost identity) and sagging skin..
    I ask people where is the fire? To keep at this project you gotta enjoy the food you put into your mouth to keep staying power. It is also mostly about moving our mind set to healthy habits and reading up what and why we need to do this. For me it was being ashamed of being a healthy overweight person and watching my active "underweight" husband eat decent food and still lose the battle to diabetes type1. Lossing my weight is a dedication to my husbands memory and to let him know I understand what he was trying to say to me.... Good luck, never give up just use every ounce of stubborn and if you bang into a problem sit down analysis it and find a way to glide around it and creep over the winners line. This success is worth more than any amount of money on this earth.. I can talk from experience the victory is sweet as anything...
