Biggest Loser!

Some co-worker friends of mine and I are participating in our own version of Biggest Loser challenge.  We created the rules, have weekly weigh-ins, and the progress is awesome.  We are five weeks in and I have lost 12 pounds!  This is better than anything I have ever been able to accomplish with Weight Watchers or anything else on my own.  I am simply working out regularly and watching my calories (keeping them around 1200 per day) and that is it!  I have more determination this time around than I ever have before and for once, I am very excited!! 

Some have asked me what is different this time around the weight loss merri-go-round?  And the difference is I turned 40.  That was huge for me.  I have a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.  I would like to avoid all of that if I can help it. 

And yes, I am kicking some booty on the challenge.  I won the monthly challenge - the girls had to take me to lunch last week (awesome salad place).  I lost another two pounds at today's weigh-in.  I am surprised and proud of myself at the same time.  And determined to win the challenge overall!
