The Night Before the Final Weigh-in

Tomorrow is the final weigh-in for our first round of The Game On Diet and I'm feeling really really great about it. Regardless of if I win the ultimate prize ($300), I already feel like a winner.

Yes, I know how lame that sounds. But hear me out.

I haven't had soda in 27 days.
I haven't looked at any celebrity gossip online in 27 days.
I haven't had a hoo-ha (overeating experience) in 27 days.
I've already lost more than 4% of my original body weight (this doesn't include my final weigh-in tomorrow, so hopefully that number will go down).
I've eaten things I've never eaten before- egg whites, canned albacore tuna (on salad with no mayo), freaking tofu...
I've tested my willpower and completely won.
Carried around a cooler throughout the city of Denver just so I could stick to the program, displaying a sense of will power I did not know I had regarding food.
Only lost points once for not getting enough sleep while I was in Denver.
Learned to say no.
Learned to say yes.
I've had maybe 4 drinks total in the past 27 days.

Those are just a few of the changes I've incorporated and made over the short 27 days. And even though the first round of this game ends tomorrow, I feel like in many ways, this really is just the beginning.

We're starting up round 2 of the game next Wednesday the 16th. Nothing like starting off with a challenge! I'll be in Chicago & Indiana for six days for work and then will also be in San Francisco for another three days on a work trip at the beginning of October. But, I figure being in situations like that is exactly when I need to be playing the game.

For now, I'm beat. I fit in two workouts today and once I write in my journal, it's time for bed!

I'll report back on how the final weigh-in goes!

Molly! I didn't know you had a blog! This post is awesome. I completely understand your struggle. Its one I can't quite get a handle on myself....but you are an inspiration for me to get going again (after a few months of completely not caring!).

....I'll probably spend the evening, after the kids are in bed, reading your previous posts:)
