I am NOT the Biggest Loser

I fell in love with mixed greens and
did a lot of fresh veggies (that's not canned corn, friends)
and paired them with regular stuff like beans
and lean meats/chicken
The Biggest Loser Challenge at work ended a couple weeks ago. I did not win the prize. But I guess the real victory was getting off the couch and getting off the doughnuts. The competition was super fierce. There were people taking 3 spin classes a day and stuff like that, and eating just a banana for breakfast, with water for the rest of the day.

In the end I lost 11.5 lbs through hard work, sweat and a healthy diet.

I did not starve myself. I always had a full breakfast, with 2 egg whites, a roll and a smoothie...okay okay, and coffee. I had a fresh lunch and would keep dinner as light as possible, without starving myself.

I did not go to the gym 3 times a day. I went once a day and did what my body could manage in the time I have before work.

I cut out snacking, consumed more fruits and vegetables, more raw foods.

I challenged myself to make salads that were fun and exciting, because I have always had a love/hate relationship with salads.

I did not get as much sleep as I should have, and this has always been my downfall, but I still felt better.

I did it for myself really - to win was always a goal as well but really, I knew it was necessary. So cheers!

  1. You may not have won the contest, but if people were going such an unhealthy route, sounds like it's a good thing you didn't win! I'm trying to change my eating habits and I applaud you for what you accomplished.

  2. I think you are awesome for participating, for doing it the right way, and for making amazing progress all on your own--you should be so proud that you have developed such healthy eating/exercise habits from this!

  3. Congratulations on your accomplishment! I think it's more important to create healthy habits that you'll stick to rather than taking drastic measures to lose weight. The former allows for longer lasting results. I think you're on the right track!
