Well, well...

First things first...
Okay, now... what do we think of Biggest Loser? What was more shocking to you... that Helen won? Or perhaps how unbelievably THIN she is? She is 5'6" and now weighs 117lbs. Is that not a bit much? If you go by her BMI (not the BEST thing, I realize)... she has a BMI of 18.9. She is bordering on being considered 'under weight'. It got me thinking... what would they have done (by 'they', I mean BL people) if she had actually come in under weight? 3lbs more and she would be under weight. Interesting. Also, how much weight did Tara lose after they left? She is at a good weight... I just didn't think she looked like she's lost a bit more?

Also... I did not enjoy the finale over all. I miss season 2 where we spent half the time following people while they were at home. What happened to the days of following Suzy and seeing her try on her size 10 pants ("right out of the dryer... and they're loose!"). Spending 3 hours watching people weigh in? Not so exciting. I guess the season is more exciting than the finale now. Boo.

So, on to me... the scale is just not my friend this week. It's absolutely not for lack of effort. I was hard on myself for my food choices on the weekend, when the truth is that I only used 7 flex points (but also had a few points leftover from Saturday... so really I only used 4 flex points this week). I've gotten in my jogs and walking... the scale is not moving. Bloat is my issue. I am PMS'ing something terrible. I feel moody, emotional, and like I'm a walking water balloon with a brick in my stomach. I don't mean to complain... I'm just trying to remind myself why the scale doesn't like me right now. Luckily, I'm not giving up. I still love that I'm losing weight and am going to totally keep at it.

I have had a lack of appetite today. I also am lacking energy. After being up late watching Biggest Loser, I slept in today. I have gotten zero activity in. Oh well. I did, however, come home and back chocolate peanut butter cheesecake cupcakes and have made a birthday card (all for my supervisor and her birthday tomorrow).

Here's the little bit I ate (I know, I know... it's not a lot).
Breakfast: 1/2c skim milk iced coffee (1), mott's applesauce (1)
Lunch: salad with veggies (0), hot peppers (0), 1/4c roasted soy nuts (1), EVOO balsamic - still LOVE this stuff (2), yogurt (1), pomegranate apple sauce (1)
Snack: 1/2c edamame (1)
Dinner: licking the spoon of cream cheese icing (2?), dried fruit (2)... that's all
Total: 12
Water: 3L
I did plan on cutting back today, but not this much... I planned on making dinner, but I'm too tired.

Next week's resolution? Remember to take my vitamins!!! I'm getting bad at slacking. Actually, I'm going to go get my pill container organized right now.

Good luck tomorrow. I am up... but it's okay. I will be down again next week!

You're absolutely right, Jen! You're not doing anything wrong. You didn't totally screw up. In fact, you had 28 more flex points to eat technically. Sometimes your body just needs to catch up with your efforts. Even the BL contestants had gains when they did everything right...including working out for like 6 HOURS!!!
I wasn't thrilled with the BL results. I wouldn't have been thrilled unless Mike won though. I am NOT a Helen or Tara fan. But I agree that Helen was not looking "normal". She seemed spaced out as well. And the way she was standing all weird with that crazy smile on her face. I wanted to turn off the TV but couldn't make myself. At least I missed all of the middle stuff. It was way too long and drawn out. Get it over with already! Anyway, that's my 2 cents!
No matter the results tonight for you...I still love you :)
