Wow, Biggest Loser got deep tonight. On a trip to Grand Canyon, Ali tells them to think of themselves as the river that runs through the Grand Canyon. Imagine the power that it had to make the changes that it did but also remember that it took a long time to make those changes. Make yourself as powerful as that river and choose the course you want to take. Wow, deep right?

The family went to eat without me (too much temptation at Leal's) so I watched the show without them. I had to rewind it quickly when they got here so they wouldn't know I had watched it without them.

Today was my D day. I didn't want to push my luck with my stomach so I only had a few fries, a few chips, and a grill cheese. I really wanted a malt or candy bar but couldn't brave it. I am still on a weird schedule because of my Thursday start. It works out that I still get a D day on Saturday with everyone else but my mid week day falls on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. Everyone at work is thinking they will order pizza for lunch tomorrow. We are all doing the diabetic plan for D days so our carbs are more spread out.

Today I could really tell one of the ladies from work was losing inches. It was great. Several of us from work had workshops today so we meet for lunch and then meet again afterwards for a snack. We ended up talking the WOE for a long time. It was like our own tiny WW meeting. I am so proud of them all for sticking with it. I know it is hard to think about needing to lose over 50 pounds but we decided to break it down into small eight week goals. We have all started different things at different times. I know for me, this time, I have to lose the weight for my health, for my future, and for myself. Enough of the deep river stuff.

I ran again today. I took my daughter in the jogging stroller to avoid the child exercise cops. She carried my water for me and told me to turn left or right. I started on a course with way too many hills and my stroller needed air in the tires. We made it 1.8 miles in my allotted time (Cto5K). I will definitely look for a flat course next time.

I am so proud of everyone's cracking. I think you have all done so good and I am thankful for the support and encouragement that has been involved. Keep up the crack a lackin.

That's a pretty deep post. We DVR'ed Biggest Loser and haven't watched it yet. I'm glad they got a little bit more emotional about it, cause I was getting frustrated at the trainers using intimidation.

Can't believe you passed up Leal's. Good job. I would do (almost) anything for a Wilburn special right now. Yay for the girls at work too. Fun to have people to share this with.
