The Good: I am watching the Biggest Loser finale tonight and am amazed by how wonderful everyone looks. I was inspired after the last finale in December when Patrick House won. After the show, I made a decision to change my lifestyle and lose the weight that I had been carrying around for a long time. Since the last finale, I have lost 52 pounds. I never thought I would be able to do it but I have and I will continue. I am looking forward to losing another 50+ pounds before the next finale which would put me at 100 or over! :) WOW!
I am writing down my foods this week so I can get back on track and keep myself accountable. I have my food log below. :)
The Bad: One thing that I have learned in the last 5 months is that there will be people who cheer you on and there will be people who will try to bring you down. Almost everyone I am surrounded by have been very, very supportive but I have come across a few that have not been as supportive. When I come in contact with these people, I try to continue to look past them and think about all of the people I have behind me cheering me on. I don't let them bring me down and I don't let them jeopardize my journey. It's not worth it! They are not worth it but YOU are! I continue to tell myself that when I do have negative encounters.
The Ugly: I am ready for summer break for so many reasons. I think that I need a change of scenery and a change of pace for a little while. I want to get inspired again and I want to focus on myself this summer. I am looking forward to spending a lot of time at Gold's and looking forward to continuing to drop weight. My plan is to lose another 30 pounds over summer break which would put me around 80 pounds lost when I start back school in August. I am ready for a few stress-free weeks ahead of me!
