The Biggest Loser and Goals

The Biggest Loser started a new season tonight.  I usually DVR it and then catch up like a half hour into the show because I have come to loathe commercials since we got the DVR.  I see these contestants and their starting weights and the ones that are close to my weight, I think in my head, is that what I really look like?  Sometimes I think I have a distorted view of myself, sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad and there are times when I feel I look decent then I see a picture and I get frustrated.  I get frustrated with myself, the choices I've made and how I could let myself get this big.  Then I resound to make a change and it sticks, for awhile.  Sure some of the things have stuck, I don't snack like I used too, Matt and I are eating supper earlier, I'm cooking more, not eating out as much, but still there must be more.  Maybe I am slipping back into old habits and I'm not realizing it.  I mean I know this week I've eaten out 3 times but they have been good choices or better choices than I may have chosen.  Yes I realize I could have not eaten out at all but sometimes it comes down to convenience.  I don't want to sound like I'm coming up with excuses but it sure sounds like it.  Either way, I'm hoping to make progress just like the new contestants on The Biggest Loser, although losing 20+ in a week probably won't happen on my Biggest Loser quest.
Here are my current measurements
Hips- 56
Waist- 44
Chest- 49
Thigh- 29
Arm- 19

My goal is 7lbs for this month.  I will be using my Wii Fit to measure and see if I reach my goal.  Hopefully I can get pictures posted by the end of the week because visual is always helpful.

AF has arrived in all her glory.  She sucks the energy and motivation right out of me.  I just feel like curling up in a ball in bed and not moving for 4-5 days.  I will be taking 150mg of Chlomid starting Thursday.  Nothing really exciting going on there, but nothing is better than something bad right?


  1. Good luck with your goal this month! Sounds like you have a good plan. Sorry about AF- I hear you on her being a life-suck. Hopefully you will start feeling better around that time with the changes you are making! How have the side effects been for you with Clomid? At one point (I think 3-ish years ago) I was taking 150mg and I was a raving lunatic! Actually, I was that with any amount of it. I call it "devil Clomid".

  2. Thank you hopefully things work and I can achieve small monthly goals and eventually reach my big goal! I really haven't experienced many side effects of Chlomid although I recall reading about yours and not sure Matt or I could handle it if that was the case.

  3. Losing 2lbs a week is average so I'm sure you will get your goal. Take it one choice at a time :) How tall are you? Your stats are pretty close to mine plus or minus and inch. I am looking forward to reading your updates.

  4. I just checked back and saw your update. I'm 5'5", We are pretty close. If you ever want to chat let me know and I'll give you my number and we can text.
