So hot right now...

My boss talked to me the other day about starting a Biggest Loser Challenge at work. I was pretty excited thinking I need all the motivation I can get. It's supposed to run from March 1 - May 31...14 weeks. Lots of fun stuff in that 14 weeks like...Easter, my birthday, a million potlucks and kiddie birthday parties, and I'm sure lots of other last-minute-lets-go-eat-celebrations. But maybe the added pressure of my boss seeing my WEIGHT on a weekly basis (kill me now) will help me say no to all these excuses for free-for-alls.

I'm a little uneasy about it, to be honest. Of the ten of us participating so far, I've got the most weight to lose, by far. By like a big ass country mile of difference. Everyone else is in the low 200s and I'm in the 400s and that sucks. On the one hand, I'll probably lose more. But since it's done by percentage just like the real show, I would have to lose a lot more just to be in the running. I'm not trying to talk myself out of it...I guess i'm just not thrilled with the idea of anyone in my real life knowing how much I actually weigh.

My boss used to go to Weight Watchers meetings with me. She was all proud to show off her little booklet telling the world she went from 181 to 178 in a week. Me, on the other hand...I hid that thing like it was made of gold and the Nazis were knocking around outside my door. I know it's just a number, but it's a rather large number that I'd rather not be labeled by.

Oh well, I'm only making it worse by dwelling on it. I'll resign myself to it and get over it at some point this weekend so I can show up Monday and act like it's no big deal. Sure, it's big, but the whole point of this thing is to make it smaller...together. So...yeah. Just keep telling myself that.

ANYWAY, is anyone watching American Idol this season? Why has everyone been so terrible so far? And why do half of the guys look like that Justin Beiber kid (AKA DINA'S BOYFRIIIIEND!!!)? The only guy that was even kinda good last nite was the hot blonde dude who TOTALLY LOOKS LIKE HANSEL FROM ZOOLANDER. I mean, twinz.

My guess is that Adam Lambert was just too good last year and now everyone else sucks by comparison. These kids better get better or else I'll have to watch something else...and no one wants that. Especially me. So please get it together. Thanks.

Giveaway winners tomorrow!

That is so great that you are doing your own Biggest Loser competition at work. My husband always comes home from work and tells me about all the junk that people bring in to eat. It can't be easy being at work surrounded by doughnuts and cookies all day.

My daughter is a huge American Idol fan. I took her to the AI tour last year. Adam was our favorite, I don't see anyone else touching close to his talent.

Oh, I am PISSED at American Idol and Kitchen Nightmares or whatever that crappy show is called. Why? Because they're showing that shit instead of the funny and intelligent shows that are Bones and Fringe. All the way until April.

Anywho, good luck with the Biggest Loser challenge! Do you have a chance to win money?

Ok Tricia. I know you're scared but this may be great for you! And all that fun, tasty food filled time that you'll be doing it...keep in mind those times come around every year, every season. There's always an excuse to binge. Stay strong girlie. We're here for you!

Hey beautiful. This may be the motivation you need to really keep you on track. Kind of like a kick start, ya know? You can do it. You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to.

Go for walks to burn some calories (how's that foot treating you?) or water aerobics. They're great and low impact. When you feel like it, maybe try a Leslie Sansone DVD. She may drive you a little nuts...she's ultra perky. But this is about burning calories so it's worth it.

You can do it, chick! I have confidence in ya. :)

Everytime I freak out about being the fat girl at the gym, or the fat girl being seen healthy (cuz obviously its a farce) I remind's better to be the fat girl at the gym then the fat girl on a stretcher.

Cheers! :)

Well, if you do are way braver than I am. I won't even weigh in at my doctor's office. lol! The nurse always looks annoyed at me, but oh well...I'd rather use my scale. Maybe if you do the challenge it'll be good though, maybe it'll be better than the baby shower cakes or even better yet maybe there won't be anymore cake if everyone is on a diet. lol
