Biggest Loser Challenge Update #3

by Mary on May 4, 2009

Hello and welcome to MONDAY!! Woohoo! We love Monday, don’t we?!?

Well, most of us do. One of my little brothers is in jail right now, so I don’t think he is loving this Monday. Sorry, little bro. But I don’t care. You shouldn’t do things like that.

Which leads me to my decision made over the weekend: I am going to stop drinking. I am done with the empty calories that turn to sugar in my body and lead to bad decisions. There is no need for me to keep drinking especially right now when I am doing everything I can to lose weight. When I think about the rewards (winning the Biggest Loser Challenge, getting affordable health insurance, saving my body from destruction) I can not possible consider the risks of drinking worth it. So I quit. I think it is the right decision for right now.

But that is not what you came to hear now is it? Let’s get to the wonderful weigh in goodness:

Weight: 246.2
Previous Weight: 249.4
Weight Loss This Week: 3.2
Weight Loss Total: 5.6

Another 3 pounds gone! Woot! Slow and steady wins the race… maybe not the Biggest Loser Challenge, but definitely the long term race called life!

Great job on the loss! Cutting the alcohol should definitely help.

That’s great! Keep it up and I know you can do it! :D Cutting the alc is a great idea! I very rarily drink anymore, even though I have a whole wine rack full of wine. I know it’s empty calories and just dehydrates me… I feel WAY better hydrated :)

I stopped drinking almost completely when i was trying to lose weight for the same reason.
if I had a treat I wanted dessert not wine.

I dont miss it at all—and when I do? I indulge.

I drink.
Not as much as I used to and not as often.
But I still drink a beer here and there.

But I think you are making the right decision.

Congrats on the weight loss. Slow and steady, girl…slow and steady.

Good for you Mary!! Agreed about the bad choices…and my gosh, some people get mean when they drink! While, I do love putting back a glass or two, I could stand to cut down as well…thanks for the reminder…right before I set off to Scotland to tour whiskey distilleries…I’ll bookmark this and read it again when I come back :)
