I have an admission to make… I have been slacking since December. "Slacking" as in I’ve only been exercising sporadically, I’ve barely logged my food, and my walking is way way down from where it should be. What’s my excuse? Oh, ya know… I have plenty of them that I feed my own self-criticism. "I’ve been so busy with moving!", "I’ve been sick all winter and the prednisone is adding water
… to The Biggest Loser Season 13 remaining shows.
I have been contemplating all week whether or not to continue watching this season’s shows and I’ve finally decided to give up on the eye rolling (Bob Harper, really?!?) and the ridiculous claims to ‘my workout routine’ (again, really Bob?!) and all the negativity!

@FionaHematoma! This Philly native is now living in Arkansas and I am so glad she won because Fiona faithfully checked in on Twitter during the 20 days of the challenge and did all sorts of exercise, from hitting the gym for the elliptical and treadmill to walking her dogs to lacing up the skates of one type for ice hockey and the other type for roller derby.

Can you believe it?! Here we are in Week 10 of the challenge… only 19 days left, my friends! Give yourself some love for hanging in! How are you doing? I am so darn impressed with you who have stuck it through all these weeks. I know some have fell off and then rejoined and I think that is so great… don’t give up. Keep believing in yourself and get back on the plan and go-baby-go!
I have been really a bit crazed in the past three weeks or so. Life is not ‘out of control’, but life right now is REALLY REALLY busy! And in one of those indisputable ‘law of attraction’ moments in my life, the nice folks at Slim-Fast contacted me asking me if I’d like to try their newly formulated products. Hmmmmm….

Have you ever gone rock or mountain climbing and you get halfway up to the peak and you look down? And you stop a moment and think to yourself "Oh, I have climbed halfway, that is really great… I didn’t think I would get this far. Look down there at the base… I could climb down now and still be satisfied… and safe because I know I’ll get down there without any difficulties."

Can I just tell you that when Conair sent me my scale to review I was thrilled! This baby does EVERYTHING and is so darn stylish compared to my old Weight Watchers plain old white scale. The Conair "Glass Body Analysis Scale" measures not only weight but body fat, body water (this is huge for me because I retain water big time apparently!), bone mass and BMI! In ONE scale.
