I'm a Loser, Baby

About 16 of us at work all put in £20 to enter our own "Biggest Loser" contest. For those of you not familiar with this it is from the US television show "The Biggest Loser" in the US. We all weighed in this morning and after 12 weeks the person who loses the highest percentage of body weight wins the pot (that's £320!)

So, I've been eating and eating and eating for the last week knowing my weigh-in was today. I was eating to the point of being sick practically. And it worked. Holy shmolly!! I'm the heaviest I have ever been. Now it's time to lose.

Today, I begin a smart healthy diet and I am now back on my bike. I will be cycling to Esher, where the shuttle gets us, 3 days this week and hopefully more next week. This is a total of 6 miles a day on those days. On at least two other days I will complete long (5k and above) run/walks. There will be one day

Part of the reason I am only cycling for only 3 days this week is that I am preparing Friday Treats. I plan on continuing to making my ever so delicious brownies and banana bread, but I may label them as 'low fat' as a bit of a joke. I will be brining in healthy stuff as well and labelling it 'high fat' so people get it.

I'm actually quite relieved to be eating correctly again. It was getting to be a chore to pig out everyday, and that is something I never thought I would say.

Wow! If I tried to ride my bike that far, I would likely burst something in my brain. I am impressed!

Good luck with winning! Sounds like you are already in pretty good shape!
