Week 4 Results- Game 4

Well I stepped on the scale today ready for this round of the game to be over. I've dealt with a lot of traveling and temptations this time around and being in NYC for the past few days has been difficult- but also very good for me to be on the game. It's so easy to recognize how different my choices would be if I wasn't.

I managed to get in another perfect point week! Which means, I am the winner of $150 for the individual with the highest number of total points. And I just made my weight goal- losing exactly the amount of weight I needed to. I was disappointed that it wasn't a bigger loss. A lot of the time it's frustrating that the number on the scale doesn't reflect all the hard work I honestly feel like I've put into this weight loss effort.

Before I started playing the Game, my weight loss attempts were all half-assed. They were lame attempts at trying to do as little as possible but expecting really big changes. I just wasn't ready apparently to put in the hard work, make the difficult decisions to see permanent and lasting effects. So when I do finally do it the right way, it is disappointing that the numbers aren't bigger.

But I keep reminding myself that this is a process. The beginning of a long process. And in the past four weeks I lost a total of 11 lbs (or 4.47%). These are numbers to be proud of. And if I hadn't been playing the game, I know my choices over the past few weeks would be much more destructive and all over the place.

The game has provided me with a lot of structure, responsibility and accountability. All things I know I need to focus on my long-term approach to getting this weight off and living a happy and healthy life.

We are taking a week and a half off the game and then start another 4-week round on Wednesday, January 6th.

For now, I'm going to enjoy a killer slice of NYC pizza!
