Biggest Loser Weigh In

Well, this morning I had my Biggest Loser weigh in at work. According to my scale at home, I lost 4.6 pounds over the last six days. According to the scale being used for the contest - SIX POUNDS over the last six days.

Now, don't worry, I haven't done anything drastic, I've been drinking my water and eating good, healthy food. I think it's post-holiday body equilibrating. You know, you eat so much over the holidays, your body starts storing things, and by going on this diet I'm just flushing out all those incompletely stored fats.

But that number is certainly making me happier than the one I saw last week! And the guy after me? He GAINED weight, so he had to pay the $5. In the first week!'

The bad news on all this is that I am not winning, as another guy lost more body fat % than I did (according to my home scale I lost 0.4% and the scale at work said 0.2%... since I didn't work out AT ALL, this makes sense).

Now that I am 95% healthy - no stuffy nose, just a slight cough - I begin working out today. I'm going to see if I can train to run an 8K on April 2nd. That's five miles for you non-metric people (like me). I have never run five miles in a row in my life. Three miles, yes. Five? Are you crazy?

Are you all bored to tears? I'm sorry, really. I think I got it out of my system.

Thanks for the metric conversion. My 4th grade son cannot believe that I'm metric clueless. C
