Weight Loss Competition: Week 5
...well, I weighed in a day earlier than usual since I will be in TEXAS this weekend for my friend Amy's graduation. I'll be gone 2morrow before my normal meeting time. It'll be hard staying on track while on "vacation" if that's what you wanna call 16+ hours on the road over 4 days. Shauna, you MAY or MAY NOT see me on Monday morning depending on the ability to remove my face from my pillow. Yikes!
Onto the results...
Week Total: -2lbs
Competition Total: -25.2lbs
Competition standings: 1st PLACE (granted the final competitors have yet to way in 2morrow night AND Jennifer, my biggest threat at the moment hasn't logged her weight.)
Weight Watchers Total (since Feb. 09): -45.2lbs
Seriously, this is the first week that Jennifer hasn't weighed in on monday which can be an extremely GOOD or extremely BAD sign for me. Our competition administrator, Kelly, mentioned this evening that Jennifer had stopped by for an "unofficial" weigh in, however, requested it not be registered for the records. She said, "I have another day, I'll be back for my weigh in 2morrow." OH SNAP!!! The roller coaster emotions involved in something like this can drive a person nuts. I am currently at .1% above her previous weeks total.
Good news is I actually lost after an INCREDIBLE week last week, so I can't complain because at least the scale moved. Mad props for Shauna, because I was the exact same weight when I jumped on the scale before Water Aerobics. However after a kick-butt hour of water aerobics followed by some steam room action and a trip to the restroom (I drank too much liquid) - haha - I managed to be down by time to tally the totals. We'll see what this next week holds in store. My competition buddy, Audrey, will be texting me this weeks final results 2morrow evening while I'm on the road.
Cross your fingers folks...
BIGGEST LOSER FINALE
ARE YOU KIDDING ME - I am proud of every single one of those guys, HOWEVER, totally disappointed that Tara did not win. Seriously, they all disserve it, so I'm not going to say "SHE TOTALLY DISSERVES IT," but AY, kinda a bummer. I believe Helen is seriously at an unhealthily low weight now. That's not cool, not cool at all.
Tara looks PHENOMINAL (sp?) as did Mike and even Ron. And Kristin, are you serious, she's gorgeous. WOW...I totally should've applied. I have my app fully completed and in my dresser drawer, however, I was too embarrassed to ask one of my friends to make a video for me, I know, how cowardly is that? Plus, I don't quite understand how they all make a living while they are away from home. I don't have a husband as supplementary income, I don't live at home with my folks, I pay rent, have a car payment, phone payment, insurance and the list continues. How do you pursue a fabulous opportunity like that and still make ends meet? That's the one thing I still wonder. Hmmm...
