Biggest Loser - Week Two

Well, it was a decent week with a 3.4 lb loss, my nutrition was real good for 5.5 days out of the seven and the other 1.5 days it wasnt horrible, I'll take it.  I did not make the gym this past week or I would have had a couple more pounds loss this week.  I finished 6th in our group and a couple of folks did gain and had to pay into the pot.  Between finishing 6th this week and 7th last week I have found myself tied for secont with a 9.2 lb loss over the course of the first two weeks.  2.5% is where that ends up being.

One of the thing that REALLY helps me with my nutrition is to track EVERYTHING that goes into my body and limit myself to a specific average number of calories over the course of the week.  On days that I do work out I do allow a few more calories because afterall you have to feed that engine.  2100 calories a day is my current goal for each week right now, I'll adjust as I lose more weight but that seems to be the right number to allow weight loss for me personally.  NOW with that being said you CAN lose weight by eating 2100 calories of McDonalds or Burger King each day but for OBVIOUS reasons thats not the right path.  Good healthy food in SURE makes a difference in my energy level and motivation.  We'll keep after it...

My plan this week is to remain consistent with my nutrition and make myself get some exercise in at least 3 different times before our next weigh in.  Looking for 6 pounds, wish me luck...

Keep the Faith and continue to Fight the FAT...

Hey "Eat to Live" dunno if this is common but anytime I try and access your blog everything freezes up and my brouser closes down. Everyone else's blogs I visit work just fine and its the same on two different computers I've tried. Dunno if you have heard of anyone else having problems or not????
