My work’s Ultimate Loser Challenge wrapped up two weeks ago and sadly my team didn’t even make the top 10. I believe we finished losing about 1.6% weight overall. Not bad – but not great. In the last week of the program, I gained 2 additional pounds which finished me at 204 – an overall loss of 6.6 lbs from my start. It’s frustrating to see that scale inch back up, especially since I was so excited to drop those 8 lbs in only 6 weeks. I felt great and was really proud of myself.
But then I was getting drained and burned out from all of the running and put working on a side burner. I also started eating whatever I wanted – so the weight of course will creep back up. I still have lots of time before meeting some of my goals and really just need to focus on those goals and get back on track.
What have you done to stay motivated? What are some great recipes to try when shedding those pounds?
