Weekly Loss: 1.8 lbs
Total Loss: 10.6 lbs
Ahh the early stage “honeymoon”. I know I won’t lose 10lbs in 3 weeks going forward so I’m definitely going to enjoy it. I’d love if I could consistently lose almost 2 lbs/week. This week was a bit odd. I’m sick again and haven’t felt hungry. I actually thought that, per my LoseIt numbers, I’d be lower. But… a loss is a loss.

I know there’s a fair bit of anti-Biggest Loser sentiment on Weight Watchers. I agree and disagree with it. I agree in that BL does make some think/expect that big losses are the norm, but I disagree in that if it teaches people to eat well and responsibly, that’s a good thing.

Child of the 80s
This HIDEOUS photo on the shores of the Galilee or the main photo on my blog are almost exactly a year ago during the trip to Israel and Jordan. No idea what my weight was then. This was March 2010 at ~ 209 when I joined WW.
This photo is today. With Saturday’s WI I’m officially 20% down from my start weight and 42.2 lbs down from when I started. Shirt is a present to myself. 80s child all around. I’m so happy with my progress. I don’t see the difference looking at myself day . . . → Keep Going: What a difference a year makes
I too was watching The Biggest Loser last night and like SoonerGRL, I was thinking about the Whys? I have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels. She’s a good pusher, but at times I think she goes too far. I don’t know how I’d react to a trainer like that. When I got my free PT sessions at the gym the GM asked what kind of trainer I wanted and my answer was “not one like the Biggest Loser”, yet I watch every week.
My whys, as I think about them now:
