Today I started "The Biggest Loser" challenge at my work. I know that if I keep my head on straight, I can win, because I know that I have done it before, and I know how hard it is to do. Its not that I doubt the ability of my coworkers to lose weight; its that I have failed many times before and it is easy to fail. Losing this kind of weight requires total commitment to a changed lifestyle. My weight today is 244.5#. I want to be 190# by 5/10. Already, I am subconsciously trying to sabotage my efforts and it has only been 8 hrs. It takes a min of 6 weeks to form new habits, so I am 5 weeks, 6 days, and 16 hrs away from my goal.
