Ten Lbs. Down Update

Posted July 29, 2009

Eight pounds down. Two to go! I lost another pound this past week from 177 to 176. It’s been ten weeks since I started the Ten Pounds Down Weight Loss Challenge. Okay, life isn’t perfect. Technically, I should have reached my overall goal of 174 lbs. today. But I had a couple of weeks in there with too much sitting and not enough moving. I capped off my exercise last evening with a long walk. My wife Cindy rescued me with her car three quarters of the way through when a thunderstorm erupted.

While anchoring the news this morning I told Kelcey Carlson I “was so hungry I could eat a cow.” Well, not really because I am cutting back on red meat.  But I did rush down to Cup-a-Joe’s at 9:00AM for green eggs and ham. One of my problems is slacking off for several days after reaching my weekly goal and struggling to get back on track.

Today question: it’s a fill in the blank:

I’m so hungry I could_____________________________.

Creativity will be rewarded.

Meantime, let us know how your individual weight loss program is going. Any more questions for ace trainer and dietitian Tara Wind?

    I'm so hungry here at the beach that the sand looks like powdered sugar,the inner tubes like doughnuts,the foamy waves like whipped cream and I could eat them all! What is it about the beach that makes me want to eat, eat, eat?

    I'm so hungry I could...........miss seeing the Presidential motorcade go past in order to place my order at the Mello Mushroom! Was fortunate to be in attendance with my son (got tickets by registering at WRAL link!) at Broughton today--and did see the motorcade zoom by from the sidewalk by the MM. What a day!

    Bill, I'm so hungry I could drive the wrong way on Capital Blvd to get to the Olive Garden faster. LOLLL

    Bill, I'm so hungry I could drive over 2500 miles from Boise, Idaho to Willow Springs, NC for some of my Mama's cooking.

    BTW, I've been doing Biggest Loser Club on line since January and I've lost 48 lbs, with 22 more to go for my goal. Not easy but it is all about how determined you are to do this. It's also not a quick process, healthy weight loss takes time and lots of patience. Best of luck to you Bill, I know you can do it and stay healthy.
