Hey everybody! My name is Sara Smith. I live in Marshall, TX. I auditioned for the Biggest Loser Season 14 and didn't get a call back. I decided then that I didn't' need a reality show to change my life, I could do it on my own. This is weight loss journey! I thank you in advance for the support. I hope that this blog touches at least someone's life and helps them make the decision to get healthy and be happy also!

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:
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)
