We're doing a big weight loss challenge at work right now. That's one of the big perks of working in a gym - helping other women reach their goals keeps me focused on mine. So anyway, its a team challenge that started this week and I am so excited about it!
I have gained some weight this year...does the "freshman 15" still count if you're 30? So I decided a few weeks ago to start losing it, and I dropped 5 pounds. I started this challenge with the goal of losing 10 (although if I can drop 15, I'll be back in the size I wore as a college freshman...) As of yesterday's weigh-in I've lost 2 pounds! Woo hoo!
I've had people at work saying, "You look great, you don't need to lose any." While I appreciate the compliments, I need to say two things...(1) Track suits are very forgiving and hide a multitude of sins. (2) I know when I am not at my best weight, and I feel the difference.
So I'm determined, I'm keeping my food diary, I'm teamed up with a friend, and we're going to win! That's what I keep telling my coworkers...on our announcement whiteboard...until my boss takes it away because of our "I'm gonna win" messages. (Actually she loves it.) Not that we're competitive or anything...
