Most of you probably have been introduced to my love affair with delicious, sumptuous and delectable food. I go through old favorites and discover new places and possible new favorites to be added on my list. Without a doubt, one can tell that I love to eat.
In search of that yummy dessert or that satisfying meal, I have also found a difference in my body, hence, the increase on my weight and size. I wouldn’t have minded it until I couldn’t fit in my pants anymore. This led me to a challenge I wanted to take on – The Biggest Loser challenge.
As you all know, The Biggest Loser is a TV show which centers on overweight contestants attempting to lose weight for a cash prize. There are different variations of this around the world. And our company has made its own adaptation of the show; however, the contestants always have the same goal: to lose the highest percentage of weight to become the Biggest Loser.
I know I am still not overweight but I want to shave a couple of inches off my belly! I may even be underweight based on some site where I calculated my “ideal weight” based on my height and weight! This confuses me.
Boxing and running have been part of my exercise routine but somewhere along the way I lost my interest in it — that or I’m just probably being a lazy a** chick! This, plus my fondness for food are the reasons why I am putting on some extra weight. And now, I feel it’s time to change my bad habit of eating and eating without exercising.
Today, I am accepting the 12-week challenge and keeping my fingers crossed that I commit until the end, which is in time for my birthday! One of the best ways to love thyself is to nourish not just your mind but also your body.
I am sharing this quest with you to draw motivation and encouragement from fellow sexy ladies (and gents too!) who want to be the best that they can be and to give inspiration to us all.
According to a tweet from one of my favorite Make Up Artists, Xeng Zulueta, a “better you” also begins with a “positive you”, a “sunny disposition you”, a “beaming you”, and a “confident you”. So to us all who aspire for our “better” selves, remember that you can do whatever you set your heart to do.
Game on and good luck!
