I represent Queens, she was raised out in Brooklyn...

So...I only lost 1.6 this week. Not sure why...I did all the right shit. Might be that I'm eating too late at night. Or too many carbs. It's a work in progress, progress being the operative word here. Meaning, hey, at least I'm still doing it, and doing it fairly well, if me and LL Cool J have anything to say about it.

BUT...I'm finally leading the dang Biggest Loser Challenge at work! Hooray! Only by a super tiny margin of 1/10th of a point, but it still counts! I also got the highest loss percentage of the week, even with my paltry 1.6. Rejoice!

I will admit, when my boss came up to my desk and ducked her head in to tell me I was in the lead, it was pretty darn exciting. Small victories! Then she patted me on the back and I was like "WHAT IS THIS STRANGE AWESOME SENSATION??" A pat on the back, like a real one. Definitely something I need more of in my worklife...and life-life, in general.

Re-enactment shown here, with dogs.

Now alls I gotta do is keep kickin' it for 11 more weeks and I win da moneyssss. I decided if I win, I'm gonna use the money to buy a steak the size of my head. Kidding...I'll prolly pay the power bill or something boring like that. Or pay someone to fan me during these upcoming hellish summer months. Or...get some workout shit. The world is my oyster! Just me and my $150ish dollars!

Mostly, I think I wanna win just to like...win. For the pats on the back!

Your boss is super creepy looking! I can handle albinos, you know, we're all human, but those red eyes are not of this world.

Try not to eat after 7pm. It helps me anyway.

Congrats on the loss.

I suspect your body is trying to compensate for the lower amount of calories you're feeding it, Tricia. You're hard-wired to hang on to extra weight (we all are), and if you eat less, the body decides that it can handle that, too. Now's the time to step up the exercise... the body has no defense for you actually going out and burning calories. Walk, swim, do a workout DVD, whatever you like or have access to.

You're doing great, but you can leave the pack in the dust if you step up your game right now.

I'm so proud of you, Tricia - you are doing great with this challenge and I love that you are in the lead! The dog reenactment shot cracked me up - you are so funny!

Sending you a virtual pat on the back, two snaps and a thumbs up!

I gotta train my dog to do that. I'll take my props anywhere I can get them.

OMG, that dog recreation of the pat on the back with the dogs totally cracked me up!

Thanks for the heads up on Jen's blog - I have been so busy with our exchange student, my blog reading has been impacted.

Hooray for being in first place!

You're doing great! That's cool that you're leading the contest at work, too. I say get you some nifty new clothes for all the weight you lose so you don't have anymore pants on the ground episodes. ;)
