After getting SO VERY CLOSE to being cast on season 8, 9, and 10 of the hit reality
TV show, The Biggest Loser, I realized a lot of things about myself. The most important being, how much I desperately want and need this. "This" being a healthy, whole, functional body.

My blog is intended to help me get accountable. Accountable to EVERYONE, family, friends, complete strangers and ultimately MYSELF. I have over 400lbs to loose in order to gain the FABULOUS life I was born to lead!!

I am SO EXCITED, nervous, embarrassed and determined. I will REJOICE with you in my accomplishments and confess to you any "falling off the wagon" I might do. I encourage EVERYONE to get out there and tell your friends about this blog. The more people that read and comment, the more accountable I create for myself! This is one of the HUGE aspects I love about the show. I would NOT have let America down! Now I just have to create my OWN America!! Post your own accomplishments, encouragement, questions, doubts etc. This blog is here for you too! Let's get this ball rolling! WE GOT THIS!!

Day one starts with "Dollar Store Lettuce..." click that red link, and then scroll past this intro. :)

Oh My Word!

What a week!!

I have been trying to post for the last two days, but I have had a terrible migraine and my computer has not been cooperating. You'd think with a computer genius for a husband, I should never be lacking for SOME sort of connection to the outside world, but all I've gotten from him this last week is, "I am workin' on it"

SO! This week was a good week! It did have it's ups and downs though. I got payed on Monday and fell off the wagon in the way of fast food twice, and then Thai food on Friday. I was afraid of this. I was afraid that the reason I did SOOOO well in regards to my no-fast-food goal the past two weeks was because I literally didn't have any money to spend. Granted! I didn't go NUTS like I usually do. That was probably because I refused to give up. I started over EVERY SINGLE MEAL!

I got out 3 times this week to walk. I am going to have to re-think this walking thing this summer! It is only June and already It was just TOO DANG HOT most of the week! I bet the morning would be better. But that means getting up early! LOL I could go to the gym and swim, but I have no swim suit. SO! I am thinking am walking is going to be what it has to be. Jillian did give me a couple workout dvd's for beginners. I am not sure I am ready for those QUITE yet! Oh WHATEVER! IF they can work out for 4hours plus their first day on the ranch, I can get through 45 mins of Jill's dvd. SERIOUSLY!! The things we tell ourselves we can't do!! UGH!

This week I AM ON VACATION!!! YAY! I can't tell you the last time I got PAID to take some time off. I am so excited!! I plan on hitting every area of my house a couple hours a day and really getting it spic and span. I will also start this morning walking thing!

I did get off track with sodas this week. So I am recommitting myself to WATER WATER WATER! I am heading to the grocery store tomorrow for good food for us all week. I refuse to let us eat crap and fast food. Good veggies, good fruit, good turkey, good breads and cheeses homemade will be interesting to see how different we feel at the end of the week!

So! Yep, in retrospect, not my best week by far since starting the blog. BUT like Jill says, don't slash the other three tires because you got a flat in one. :) Over the weekend I repaired my flat tire! I am heading to weight watchers tomorrow to weigh in, I should still see a loss, not sure how much...but a loss none-the-less and will hit my Vacation day #1 with gusto!! This will be the FIRST vacation that I have actually LOST weight on! :)

Stay tuned!!
