The end is near.... Biggest Loser

So i started this weight loss journey on January 5th - with the rest of the contestants on the biggest loser and although their season was over last week - our competition is going on for another 9 days [trust me i am counting down the days until this competition is over].
you can read about my initial weight loss here, here and here
As of today I am down 10.7% since I started this competition - and I honestly feel better than ever... and not only have i been able to tell that i look as if I have lost weight - but people have been mentioning it to me as well - talk about a confidence booster! but the end is near and I want to make sure that I give it my best effort so.....

for the next 9 days [which is about 200 hours - it sounds much less daunting when you put it in perspective of hours ] I will be doing low carb and really watching my intake of sodium- [goodbye everything delicious - i will miss you!]

i'm hoping that this will help me drop the extra needed few pounds to win...
but this is where I need
YOU bloggy friends
do you have any quick tricks in loosing weight? like a "miracle food" that boosts your metabolism? or something that helps keep your mind of the delicious foods that you can eat??? any help would be much appreciated!


and yes the thought has crossed my mind - MANY times of sending the same candy bars they had in mean girls to the other top competitors and wish them well - no one said i wasn't competitive.. a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to win - right?!!?

So until next Saturday - its crunch time... here's to no carbs [bread, pretzels, beer], low sodium food and LOTS and LOTS of running...

i will post beginning and ending pictures next Saturday

Haha! I laughed when I read that comment about sabotaging the other players!!

I am a big gum chewer and that alwyas keeps my mind off foods....and buy a ton...so when the flavor wears off...pop in another piece!

Keep running the race! You are doing such a great job. My power food is berries - I have eating strawberries and blueberries, they are great for you, your skin, and a low cal food with tons of nutrients.

Oh, and drink lots and lots of water....that's the only tip I have that makes me feel better. ;)

Jenni said...

Oh, good luck! Over 10% that's incredible!!

Lauren said...

That's great!! I'd say drinking a ton of water and cutting out caffeine has been the one thing that has made me feel better - but I have not dropped a pound. I'd love to hear about how you've lost weight!

Best of luck! Eat lots of veggies, drink lots of water!

Did you end up sticking with Livestrong? I swear by it.

Water when you wake up.
Water before you go to bed.
Water
Water
Water.


It flushes out your body and is not extreme. good job and good luck!!!

I love Fiber One bars and sometimes forget what they do to you! They're just so good!

Allison said...

congrats on losing so much weight!! :) my tricks to losing weight are the obvious- drink TONS of water.. anytime i'm hungry i drink a bottle of water. cut up fresh fruit and veges and have them with you at all times so when you do actually get hungry, you dont turn to something bad to eat. good luck with the next 200 hours! You can do it! :)
