New Me - Day 4!

So glad I pushed through the withdrawal symptoms! Got through the headaches, body aches and cravings and am feeling so good now! :) I am on day 4 of my "New Me" journey and have had 3 perfect days so far! I know, 3 days is nothing, but in my mind, it is a PERFECT year so far ~ and it don't get any better than that!

On Saturday, my sister (Deathmetalmommy ~ see her blog in a link to the right) and I went to the first weigh in for the "Biggest Loser" competition that we are joining. It is $25 per person, and lasts for 6 months. The first week of June, the person who has lost the largest percentage of weight (like they do on the BL show), will win the pot ~ which looks to be around $500! I talked to Sam about it and he agreed that if I can win it, we will take it and immediately turn around and book a cruise for 2 to the Bahamas. We have never cruised, nor have we ever been away from all 3 kids, so this is huge for us! This now has him excited about the competition too...he is all about working out and trying to help me any way he can. This is going to help so much!

My only slight temptation was this morning, when I got up and fixed a big breakfast for my hubby and our good friend who was visiting from Ohio...they were both heading out to work and it was 17 degrees, so they needed it, lol! I was tempted by my homemade biscuits...I can throw down some homemade biscuits, lol...but I chewed my sugar free gum, got through it, and sat down with them with my bottle of water and my own breakfast and just enjoyed the company ~ something I don't usually do when eating. It's usually about shoveling down the food and (embarrassing to admit) making sure that I got the amount of food I wanted.

Hopefully we will make it to the YMCA tonight to start 5k training. Oh, stepped on my scale this morning and look down about 5-6 pounds from the 1st. Yes, it's water, but it's water I wouldn't have lost had I not changed my way of eating ~ I would, no doubt, already be up another pound or two. That scale is moving the right direction, and I plan to keep it that way!

It's going to be a great day!
