Week 4 - 1 month down!

Below is the percentage of weight loss after Week 4 (this is a running total, not a weekly result). Wow, some people made some big moves this week, I wish I was one of them but I'm hanging in there.  See that pic of our Biggest Loser trainers?  One of my goals is to wear jeans and boots like that - hot! 

My sister Lori came from behind and took first place from Marcy and has gotten over half way to her goal!  Will she keep it or will Marcy make a comeback next week???  Amanda, Michelle - looking good ladies, almost half way to your goals!  I can't wait to see these numbers climb out of the 2's and 3's and get into the 5%-10% range, so exciting.

Weekly Tip courtesy of Everyday Health:
Focus on Fat
Because it has the highest concentration of calories, cut down on fat intake, and saturated fats in particular — heavy cream, butter, sour cream, and cream cheese — which elevate LDL, the bad cholesterol, explains Barbara Schmidt, MS, RD, lifestyle specialist at Norwalk Hospital and private practice nutritionist in New Canaan, Conn.
Weekly Thoughts courtesy of your teammates/competitors. (sometimes I get a little backlogged, so if you don't see it this week, look for your comments next week.)
To keep me on track to meet my weight loss goal, I am creating motivational rewards along the way. For example, I often find myself talking myself out of going to the gym….I ‘m too tired, too hungry, too busy, too ‘you-fill-in-the-blank’ to go to the gym today. To stop this self-sabotaging talk, I set up a reward system to ensure that I get to the gym as scheduled. My ‘currency’ for going to the gym is a Starbuck’s coffee---iced coffee with sugar free caramel, YUM! So, on my scheduled gym days, I only get my iced coffee if I go to the gym. Yes, the iced coffee is a big motivator for me and is so powerful, I haven’t been too tired, too hungry, too busy, too ‘you-fill-in-the-blank’ to go to the gym . So, if you are having troubles sticking to your plan, define your ‘currency’ (must be diet friendly) and try using this ‘currency’ as a motivational reward.
