Well, I know that is normally for Campbell’s Soup, but I don’t know how else to describe my Sonic Sweet Tea today.  I could also say “Good to the last drop” but that is Maxwell House Coffee, but I am savoring every last sip.  Our Biggest Loser contest at work ended today.  As a group we lost 89 pounds which I think is awesome.  Those of us who stuck out the full 8 weeks decided that we would continue with the weekly weigh-ins to help hold us accountable, so my sweet tea will be short lived, but an occasional treat for myself.  I have changed my eating habits (like nothing after supper) and resolve to continue that.  But for today I will enjoy this Route 44 (Yes…….the largest tea Sonic sells) until it is empty, and maybe even eat that lunch size bag of potato chips with my turkey sandwich, but tomorrow is another day.  (oops…is that Scarlett still with me?)

So, I will toot my own horn for a minute.  Indulge me.  I was just a little short of averaging a weight loss of 2 pounds a week, so almost 16 pounds for the contest.  I came in 2nd.  I am back into pants I couldn’t wear in September, tops are not as tight as they were and at the peak of my exercising (before I hurt my back exercising Sunday night) I was making 60 laps around the gym at church.  Of those 60 laps, I would run 10-15.  I plan to continue walking and hope to do the exercises again when the back allows.  No crash diets, no laxatives, nothing but watching how much I was eating and exercising.  A healthy adjustment.  Thank all of you for the encouragement…….keep it up……..the holidays are upon us!

Now I must go and sip the remainder of my tea.  Mmm….Mmm….good.

 

Biggest Loser Week 7 November 6, 2008

Well, only one more week to go in our Biggest Loser contest at work.  They didn’t give us results today, but I think I am stuck in 2nd place, and I am not sure I can overtake the leader.  I lost another 2 lbs this week.  But the leader will have to gain weight next week and I will have to lose double my weekly pace for me to catch her – I think.  But still, I have lost 13 lbs. and that is a good thing and my eating habit are much better.  But, I will say–next Thursday after work–don’t get in my way as I go to Sonic for a large sweet tea!!  That is my one reward I am allowing.  I can’t wait!!!!!!!
