We found the scale! HOORAY :) I weighed myself yesterday morning and I actually am up 2.2 pounds. It's all good - I'm ok with my results as its so close to the end of Thanksgiving. See, I think most of it is just water and bloat from the salty holiday food because as of this morning it's almost all gone. So, in the past 30 days I think I wavered around +/- 1 pound.
In full disclosure, I didn't really commit to anything except not weighing myself in the past 30 days. I started out with good intentions, but I got caught up in the whirlwind of getting ready for a holiday, getting ready to go back home for Christmas (I actually leave next week - I do Christmas early so my flights are cheaper!), life and other stuff. However, after my boyfriend found the scale, he decided to weigh himself and he was NOT happy with what he saw. SO, I asked him if he wanted to have a little 30 day challenge with me and he agreed.
Ergo, we are having a Biggest Loser challenge that starts today and ends December 31st. I know that's 31 days but it just fits so well being the last day of 2010 and all. We're going to be doing it based on % of body weight to try to even the playing field - that's where the Biggest Loser part comes in. Now is the tough part, I'm up against one person (unless anyone else out there wants to join in!) who is first and foremost a male, and we all know they have a slight advantage on us, and secondly, it's a known fact in our household that he has a pretty good if not great metabolism, so I have my work cut out for me. This is good though, I love challenges and I love winning even more so it's good motivation.
We even have stakes. Whoever wins get a "Date Night" of their choice and the loser has to foot the bill the whole night.
I'm going to have to work super hard to win but I need to be working hard anyways. Also, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. Maybe some well timed baked goods in his honor will help my chances. He's a sucker for brownies and I just happen to be very good at making them. It's not cheating - just think of it as a "temptation" - it's totally up to him whether or not he wants to participate :)
