  • I signed on to this event to make up for losing my way. I did a biggest loser type contest last summer/fall, at the end I ran a half marathon. Lost my motivation to exercise after that and continued to eat like I was training. Result, up about 12 pounds.

    I think a big contributor to my success last summer was the food diary requirement. There is a handy, free app that I used. MyFitnessPal. If you're looking to get a handle on your calories it is a great tool. There is something psychologic about physically recording your food intake. It will also give you an idea of your macro and micro nutrient intakes if you interested in that. Overall pretty handy, and in an attempt to secure one of those wonderful sponsor prizes, I started logging my food again this morning!

    Best of luck to all who enrolled. I look forward to sharing ideas and recipies along the way!

    Is it still possible to get in?  I sent you an e-mail with a scale pic.  Could really use the motivation to lose some lbs.

    Low carb dinner. Costco ground beef with Costco fresh salsa, covered in Costco shredded mozzarella, and under the broiler for a couple of minutes. I guess you all know where I spent my morning.

    My Condolences.... and I admire you for not making one of their ribeyes as comfort food.   That's a great low carb dish.
