Biggest Blogging Loser

in Becoming Myself

I, along with 108 other people (!!), am participating in Jennie’s Biggest Blogging Loser.

Which means I’m on record at her place, here, on my to-do list, and on Twitter as committing myself to 12 weeks of weight loss.

I guess that means I have to stick with it, right?

I say that sort of jokingly and sort of not. The whole reason I decided to join the Biggest Blogging Loser competition is not for the money–though it would be hella nice–but because I wanted something, some outside force to help me stay focused, to help me stay committed. I figured the competition, and hopefully support, would be just the push I need.

Because it’s been enough for a while now, and I haven’t been able to make myself start. It’s been enough of feeling crappy. And of my clothes not fitting. And not feeling sexy. And being run down. And of trying to ignore mirrors.

So, while the money would be nice (and you know if I win I’m totally buying myself something awesome, and NOT being practical with it at all!), the real prize? I’ve already gotten that…the motivation to start. The motivation to begin something I’ve been meaning to do for months now.Years, if I’m honest with myself.

So even if nothing else comes of it, I’ve started. And at the end, no matter where I end up in the rankings, if my pants fit better I’ll be a happy girl.

Good luck! I have found that being part of a group, or somehow applying a net worth to the project (because I am nothing if not thrifty when it comes to myself) is very helpful. I know you can do it!
