Weight Loss Contest: Week 3

This week yielded a much better result:  2.8 lbs down! I was again the “biggest loser” in the office! I worked out quite a bit, not exhaustive, but fairly long duration. My coworkers asked if I could bring in some of my Leslie Sansone Walk at Home DVDs for us to do at lunch. Every morning, I tried to do 1/2 hr. to an hour in the morning, and a group of us did 1/2 hour at lunch. Since the Super Bowl is coming up in Indianapolis, I thought it might be fun to also go walking downtown by the Super Bowl Village, so each day I’d spend another 1/2 hour or more walking down there. This week should be more fun (but crowded) as visitors arrive. But it’ll be great to get out and walk more.

My lost total since January 5th: 9.8 lbs! Woo hoo! I’m on my way to my goal!!

      Thanks! I was SO excited to see my number (it’s anonymous, we’re only identified by a PIN code). I am so happy with the BFC, combined with Leslie Sansone Walk at Home, my outdoor walks, and some occasional high impact cardio thrown in just enough to bump up the calorie burn, but not enough to strain my knees.

    Thanks for your email! I was an avid RunKeeper user until I switch from iPhone to Android and RunKeeper didn’t have an app on that platform yet. So now I use CardioTrainer. I LOVE tracking my workouts like that! Congrats on your loss so far, that is awesome!!

      Thanks Amber! I enjoyed finding apps to help track my progress, diet, cooking, whatever it is…on the iPhone. makes everything so much easier. I’d been using My Fitness Pal all last year, then when I read the BFC books in December, I saw your blog post about using MFP and the BFC together, I immediately modified my goals to fit the sugar goal and it’s so easy to track now. The funny thing about MFP is that after entering workouts, it increases all of the goal amounts proportionately to the exercise calories, so I couldn’t figure out why it was showing my sugar goals as different amounts that 15 g. That’s why…
