2 more contestants weighed-in today for a total off 11 people in the biggest loser competition. I’m not scared! Based on the 11, there are only 2 people I am remotely concerned with. Gail, she won the last time she was in the Office Biggest Loser competition. Richard probably would have won back in March if the comp had gone on 1 more week. He was sprinting to the finish while I was screeching to a halt.
I’m not sure how the shorter time frame will play out. Only 6 weeks instead of 12. No room for mistakes. I don’t know if I can go 6 cheat free weeks but I probably have to go pretty close to that to beat Gail. When she gets serious, she never cheats. Never touches any of the office food. I might be more than a little grumpy by the time this competition is over.
Good start !
Daily Loss – 1.9 pounds
Total – 1.9 pounds
The guy who pushed me to start the competition dropped 6! Still not worried. He really doesn’t have much to lose and usually once he hits 175, he starts maintaining at that point. Percentage wise, I don’t see him being able to lose much more. His drop will scare Gail into bunker mode so we are going to have a spirited race to the gold.
Cindy started the sabotage. She brought me a slice of pizza after lunch. I then took the Pizza and put it on Mr. National Guard’s desk. He ate it. Last year, he was tough to beat. Not so much this year. His head isn’t in the game.
Only had a little more in the tank tonight. 4.2 miles. Need to get back to 10. I need to delve into the archive and see how long it took me to get up to 10 miles back when I bought the bike.

Had to skip the Seminar lunch on Monday, then the webinar lunch today. Tomorrow, I need to hide from Free Lunch Wednesday. The lady in charge of picking the lunch is in the competition. It will be interesting if she picks healthy lunches for the next 6 weeks or if she picks the worst items on the menu to sabotage the competition. She is the one who brought me the pizza. 😛
I do need to find some additional low carb items to eat. I can’t eat 2 turkey burgers a day because they are LOADED with salt. The Jenni-O burgers aren’t high in sodium like the Butterball burgers. However, the Jenni-o burgers are full of broth, fall apart and shrink tremendously on cooking. They also don’t taste like turkey. The Butterball burgers taste like turkey but have about 800 mgs of sodium per burger.
I’m going to keep eating the burgers until I get used to the lower calories. Maybe the first week and then I can try to add something else. It needs to be easy to make, not much of a mess and it needs to keep well in the fridge for a while. Can’t be eggs or Pork Loin!
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
