Small Town Biggest Loser

      One of my awesome co-workers sent out an e-mail about my small town hosting a biggest loser competition and wanted to know if anyone would like to make a team from our school.  I e-mailed back and said that sounded awesome, so eight of us signed up to represent our school. I can't believe it was a little over a month ago when we started (Feb.15).   Dieting has always been a challenge for me, for example about a year ago, I decided it was time to change my eating habits due to high blood pressure and cholestrol.  I did great until I realized I had a unique class and on top of that had an unexpected hysterectomy, so my diet was put on the back burner.  One of my New Year Resolution's was to start back on my diet and live healthier.  I started going to a water aerobics class (love it) and joined Weight Watchers.   
      I never realized how much fun it could be when you have friends doing a  "diet" with you.  We can encourage each other and also brainstorm on good "diet" foods.  So far I've lost 14 pounds, and our school's team is in third place out of twenty groups.  I've been counting my points and trying to log everything I eat.  I want to help my team in anyway possible so that has helped to stick to my diet, and I'm thinking that blogging about it will help me, too.

Good job! I started WW in August, and it really helped that I had friends joining me. And now the staff at the schools I sub for are really into, and that's helpful.
