II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Grrrrr.....Wednesday Weigh In

Man, this SUCKS! I only lost 1 pound this week. WASSUP WIT DAT? So now I am back down to 148---which gives me a total weight loss of 5 lousy pounds in 4 weeks. I am going to try to set weekly goals now I think. My goal is to be at 145 next Wednesday. I know that sounds like a lot since I haven't been doing any good these past 3 weeks...but I have faith. I am going to add a few extra things to my current regimen and hopefully that will make the difference.
By the way, how many of you are keeping up with The Biggest Loser? What a bummer last night for the red team. I mean, it was great that they had the immunity since they obviously needed it....but I wonder why their numbers were so low...!?! Man how I would LOVE to have Jillian for my trainer! Actually...I like Kim better...personality wise....but I think Jillian is probably a little tougher than Kim is.
Anyhow...next Wednesday is October 10th. 10/10. If you know me very well...that number is a BIG DEAL in my family. It's always been our "lucky" or "blessed" number. It's bizarre, I know...but ever since I was a little kid we've had a thing about that number...so I especially have FAITH that my weight will be better next week! Anytime we see 1010--whether it be on a clock, an address, a phone number, our hotel room number, etc...we always quote the scripture John 10:10 which says, "The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy, but I (Christ) have come so that you might have life and life more abundantly."
Hooray for abundant life and having "immunity" from the theif!

Yes, I watched BL last night. Everyone's body is really starting to change, although it may not appear so on the outside. One thing to consider w/ your and w/ their weigh-ins is that eventually all this working out and strength training is going to start adding muscle, which weighs much more than fat. Ironically, you need the muscle to burn fat more efficiently. I know how frustrating it is, but your body has to to accustom itself to the changes you are putting it through so it may not always be a big loss every week. Keep it up and the numbers will start to go down. In the meantime look for other signs of progress - more energy, pants fitting better, looking slimmer, better posture, etc.

And yes, I love Jillian!!! I workout w/ her every morning. I love how brutal she is b/c she can really get you motivated. She doesn't let you make any excuses for bring in poor shape/eating bad. Try her videos if you haven't already. I'll warn you though, in the beginning, they're brutal. She does not take ANY breaks and has you doing 2 exercises at a time (i/e/ bicep curls w/ lunges) to burn more fat.

Ok, I haven't watched it yet! I recorded Biggest Loser, and am planning on watching it while on the Elliptical (either tonight or tomorrow afternoon).

I LOVE that show! I really like Kim, she is what I strive to look like someday. She is also so sweet, yet hard on them when she needs to be. I think I would be more like her, if I was a trainer.
But boy, if I had to choose, I would want Jillian to train me. I would want someone to kick my butt, beyond what I thought I could ever do. She definitely does that. Tough love! She does care about them, that is why she is so hard on them. :)

Ok, now I can't wait to go watch it!

Jen, don't get discouraged. You have lost so much weight and have come so far over the past few years. You know exactly what to do. So I KNOW you can and will reach your goal! Just hang in there, and don't get discouraged by the scale. Go by how your clothes feel. And you have a great idea about setting small goals! Keep me updated!!!! :) I look forward to reading your Wednesday weigh-ins. Have you done your measurements yet, to see how much they are changing?

Well in the midst of the thunderstorm and signal loss several times, I did get to watch. Kim is nice, but she is a weeny! I think she sucks as a trainer, to have your team only lose 1 pound here and there, that is awful for her. And them. I pray you accomplish your goal this next week.
