Today is a new Day

Hello wonderful readers! OK so not much to report today. From what I can tell, I lost another 0.2 pounds. Not much but hey its something! I am buying a new scale that hopefully will be a lot better than the one I have now. I need more consistency and accuracy. I am looking at either the:

  Borg BDL928KD-53 Digital Scale

or the:

  Borg BDM950KD-45 Weight Tracking Scale.

I think I am going to go with the Weight Tracking one because it tracks my BMI and weight so I can see my progress. I am still religiously using my MyFitnessPal app. Anything that goes into my mouth I put in my calorie tracker. OK are you ready for this, I surprised myself last night. I know it doesn't sound like much to most of you but to me this was a big deal. I did 10 sit ups last night! Like I said, to most of you this is probably nothing, but to someone who has been totally not active for the past several year, this was a BIG deal. I am going to continue to do 10 a night until it starts getting easier then I will do more. I can't wait until we buy our elliptical machine so I can start using that and hopefully seeing real results. I drank 112 ounces of water yesterday. I've had 16 ounces so far today. I was told that when losing a lot of weight, that drinking at least 100 ounces of water a day is very important because your skin needs the water to maintain its elasticity so you wont have sagging skin when the fat is gone. I really don't want to have to have a tummy tuck when this is all over because we are talking about a big amount of weight loss here. I'm aiming to lose between 130 and 160 pounds! I want to see numbers on the scale that I haven't seen since I was probably in junior high. I am so humbled by the overwhelming response of support and love I have received from you all just in the past few days that I have started this journey. It will be a long ride and I hope to have all of your love and support as well as gain some new friends and their love and support throughout the whole journey. That's really all I have for today as yesterday was pretty uneventful. Thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,
Sara (The Biggest Loser 14 Reject)

  1. I did 30 sit ups yesterday at the gym (10 and took a break to catch my breath haha and then 2 more sets) and I was looking around like "UHHH does anybody see that I can only do three sets of 10"? BUT what the heck thats a huge deal for me because I don't do sit ups hello. Do what is hard for you not what is hard for people who are already in shape and don't worry what people think because you are working your ass off. Good job girl!
