Still going strong

Day 5 of this week and I'm still on track. Food wise completely OP today. Drank 2L of water by 3pm too.

Between the taking out the garbage, putting my clothing donation out the door and planning my day in the tracker I left without my gym bag. I'm not phased by it as I'm exhausted and think a rest day may not be so bad today. Besides I'm in first week of WW (again) so the fact that I've tracked everything, stayed OP, taken my vitamins every day, flossed and have logged more workouts in this week then I have in a long time- I'm doing alright.

I've truly surprised myself in how I've switched on this week. I was talking to my friend T about it and she said "It happens". I guess it does, now of course the trick will be to keep at it.

So I came home after work and watched the season premier of The Biggest Loser, wowsers they keep pushing the bar don't they. I'm still somewhat surprised no one has died on that show by taking someone over 500lbs sticking them on an exercise bike and saying O.K bike 26.2 miles on the first day.

I wandered onto the WW boards today and saw a thread where people were taking about the show and comparing it to Taking It Off (the predecessor to X-Weighted). While I'm always in awe of the finale of Biggest Loser the concept of the show can't really be done in real life. Not working for months and spending the entire day in the gym, not exactly feasible for the average person. Taking It Off and X-Weighted focus on people in their everyday life and dealing with fitting the workout into the day to day to life.

Of course I'll still watch BL and be inspired as always. Talk to you later,

I know Byron from Taking it Off in real life and he has nothing nice to say about Paul Plakas! LOL. (He also gained all of his weight back because he stopped his food plan as soon as the show ended...too bad really.)

Keep up the good work girl. What a powerhouse of a week you are having!

I definitely agree with you about Biggest Loser - not realistic at all. And by the time the finale rolls around, some people are too thin IMO. X-Weighted is way more realistic. But I shall still watch it every week!!

Great job on staying OP!
