A Hiatus and Cupcakes

So if you are reading this blog, you were probably a part of the Biggest Loser Challenge that Maureen and I set up; either that or you know me and for some reason you want to read about my quest to shed some weight and get in rockstar shape.

For those of you that don't have the basics, here's the short version.

-I've just finished a 4 month weight loss competition.
-I've lost 32 lbs (for those of you with my %, you can do the math, I don't really care)
-I worked my butt off.
-I'm taking a few days off from thinking about everything I eat.
-Round 2 starts next Thursday and goes until the beginning of September.
-My mother declared that some one should keep a daily blog of round two with before and after pictures. So here is said blog.

Now for the bloggy narrative portion of this entry.

Round one finished yesterday with final results announced this morning. Yours truly won by all of 0.2% or something like that. So I'm kind of stoked about that, plus the money is nice. :) Yesterday I ate all the things I have been craving for the last few months but haven't really eaten, tacos, pasta, and sprinkles red velvet cupcake. I think I am still full :) It was interesting to discover just how much my body was like WTF is all of this, I want a salad. So I guess that's a good sign that this is a life style change and not just a diet. I was planning to not really pay attention all week, but I don't really think that will last I feel way to out of wack from yesterday, plus I don't really want that much of a back slide. There is no way I ever want to see those 32lbs ever again. Having been informed that pictures are going to be key to this blog, here's one.

Clearly a before and after, however, it's from like a month ago, I think I've dropped something like 10lbs since that was taken, I will have to work on taking another one slash I will have to work on taking some more frequently. Thoughts on how frequently? Every Friday? Every 5 lbs? You all tell me what you want to see.

So where do I go from here? Well my key dates are my trip to Vegas mid June and Peter's wedding in early August. I would like to have lost another 10 by Vegas and would LOVE to be somewhere close to 30 for the wedding. So that's my inspiration, well that and making sure my mom doesn't win round 2; can't have that can we? (I can here her saying "you're such a brat" in my head right now)

So I believe this maiden post has gotten long enough, now it's up to you to tell me what you really want read about on here, the foods I find that are amazing, the workouts, the workout music, the holy crap am I thin yet moments?

Think Thin!
