BDW Biggest Loser ~ Season 9!

Recommended Posts

Echo that. Non-food rewards really help you make your small goals. I set a work out goal and when I reached it, I got a massage. It really helped my now aching muscles!

 

And I had to go shopping, because there's only so much a belt can do to hold your pants up!

Me too! Its really encouraging! Clothes are getting baggier and baggier...not quite there yet though so Im putting off the new purchases so that I don't waste $$$ on "in between" clothes.

My trick is to not over do it and to not waste calories on things that aren't worth it. There's nothing worse than spending some of your calories on mediocre food.
NO ME TOO!! I try to explain this to FI all the time- I will send something back if I'm 'cheating' and it's not exactly how I want it. I'm wasting those calories dammit, and I want my food how I ordered it! haha

DITTO.

I know it is hard- but like it has been said- you have already made great progress. It is so hard to see the scale move so slowly week by week- but when you make those small goals- it's just that much sweeter along the way! We are all here for encouragement and support- I didn't really have any of that the first 20 lbs lost- and it took me a very long time! Chin up- you are a gorgeous woman- and it's obvious that your FI thinks the same no matter what that number is (even though I know that the weight loss is to make you feel better!) wink.gif

Oh helllllllll yes. I have so many of those!! Fitting into them slowly is fantastic.

Please do join us! The official deadline for the competing category was yesterday, but you can still participate. Send me your pictures and I can track your progress in the non-competing group (which I am in too!). It's pretty much the same thing. The only difference is that the winner of the BL gets a BL season 9 avatar... which I still need to figure out how to make, lol.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
