I entered a "Biggest Loser" contest at my gym. I have 10 weeks to lose the most total inches. Today was the end of my first week and I got measured to monitor my progress.

Here's how I did:

Bicep - lost 1/8th of an inch
Chest - Same
Waist - lost 1 inch (my trainer and I were both shocked)
Hips - lost 1/2 inch
Thigh - lost 1/2 inch
Calf - Nothing as expected

Weight loss isn't a component of the competition but last week I lost 1.8kg! Almost 4lbs! I'm betting it's mostly water but I can't complain! :-)

I feel awesome and am motivated to kick even more butt this week!

Wheeeeeee!

Nice work!

Congratulations! Keep it up and I look forward to reading weekly results or ending results when you're all done.

Have fun!

I'm trying to work up the courage to do so. I'll see what I can do. :-)

Ahhhh. Just look at the disaster of a body I started off with in january on my shots. Horrendous. Don't worry, everyone here is very supportive and not out to criticize negatively.

Btw, nice progress and I look forward for your shots when you're ready to do so.

Thanks for your support guys!

Lean and Green, it takes a lot of courage to post photos when you're not in the shape you want to be in. I applaud you for posting them and for working hard to achieve what you've accomplished. :)

I will try to get my hands on a camera this weekend and get some photos up here. The more I have to hold me accountable, the better.

Here's this week's report...

The qualifier - There are just too many variables today for me to feel successful or deflated. My trainer's sister measured me instead of him. She used a different tape measure. I was wearing different clothes and I have my period. Ugh. From now on, I'm wearing the same bra, a tank top and shorts. This is has the potential to get ridiculous so I better get all the "controllables" on my end, under control before we really get into this.

And the results-

Bicep - Same
Chest - Lost 1inch
Waist - gained 3??? (we suspect water retention??)
Hips - Same
Thigh - lost 1/4inch
Calf - Nothing as expected

I hope you're the best loser! :)

All the best, and thanks for the updates!

I think I won a biggest loser contest of another kind. I'm afraid to admit it but I have tickets to see NKOTB in concert, in Montreal, in September. OMG!

Now, back to my other loser contest.

I got measured today....

I lost another 1/2 inch off my chest and pretty much everything else stayed the same. I found out that last week I had lost a 1/4 inch off my calves... so that was uplifting.

I'm going to start watching my food intake like crazy and try to up my cardio.

Does slow and steady win the race or should I be looking for something to boost my progress? *shrugs* *sigh*

On the bright side, because there's always a bright side, I'm feeling great, I'm inspiring the people around me to make better choices, I'm having fun and I'm on a path to being a healthier me... and gosh darnit, people like me. :P

I finally got measured this week. Only 4 days late. The results were mixed. Most stuff stayed the same but I *gained* on my bicep???? And lost a half inch off my waist. We looked at the stats of the other contestants and I'm doing about the same.

And the beat goes on...

Thanks for the encouragement! I feel like I have a cheering section. :-)

I got measured today and... close your ears boys... it's that TOTM again. UGH. My trainer almost didn't want to bother measuring me but I made him. He was just going to put down that everything stayed the same but I wouldn't allow it.

All around, I did stay the same but I lost 1/4 of an inch of my hips. Whooohooo! Every little bit helps. :-)

I decided to take this week off from training to give my body a chance to fight my throat infection. I hope to jump back in on Saturday and start playing with weights to get ready for the Body for Life program I want to start.

So that's it for me, for this week...

Join me next week as I continue to my quest to become the biggest loser one quarter inch at a time. :) :) :)

Congrats Karma! It's great to be moving toward your goal, and with such a positive outlook, your bound to smash it! Never underestimate the power of positive people and thinking.
