Week 25 Weigh-in: Biggest Loser Challenge

I am sure you are familiar with the Biggest Loser TV series that ran its 17th season this year - since 2004. It is a challenge where obese or overweight contestants are made to go through rigorous exercise and strict dieting disciplines. They compete for cash reward for 3 months and after which a ranch winner and a home winner emerges. So when next you hear "biggest loser", its not pessimism they mean the individual with the lowest number on the scale, I will most love to be in that category, lol. 

Post today is about a replica of this TV series that I have been involved in over the past 4 years. This is an online version of the biggest loser TV series. This challenge runs for 15 weeks straight with a weekly Wednesday weigh in and some other in between activities just to keep team mates on their toes for the period, some of which are:

Week 24 Weigh-in: Family

I have cracked my brain over what to write about today and when I tried putting some post together about "living healthy on a low budget" (watch out for that next), the topic "family" just popped in my mind and I decided to just pour my heart out a bit this week and also reminiscence into what my family eating style was about too.

I grew up within a family of 7 including mom and dad. We are a combo of 3 boys and 2 girls, friendly siblings in our years of growing, we did everything together and really loved ourselves. I think as we were growing we started recognizing our individual differences and it could only make us form parties, I don't mean we disliked ourselves but we started preferring one person over the other and obviously became closer with one more than others, lol. (If this has not happened in your family, raise your hands up).

Week 23 Weigh-in: Food Pushers

What or who are food pushers? We encounter them daily during our weight loss journey and instead of avoiding them I think we can be polite. This post is based on some facts about food pushers and as I had personally encountered them and the few reasons why they push food at you.

They can be categorized into 3.

Fitness Essentials

I received a mail this past week with a request to discuss the above topic. It's not a very sensitive topic because I am more result-oriented than checking style out during or after a sweat session but I think I got interested along as I wrote.

I am a stylish person in my own little way (we had that since we were little), and I think I can be crazy with labels. I love anything that I need to buy to be close to the best if not the best, I window-shop a lot maybe it's the reason I stand out for buying quality. It's in me to save to buy the best not for a show off but I believe that buying the best will save you of future unnecessary expenses (I have tested and tried that on several occasions).

I become more conscious of kitting up for my workout sessions and probably answer a few questions so you understand my style.

Week 22 Weigh-in: New Exercise Plan

My weight is up this week because of a new exercise plan. 

I weighed this morning first thing after leaving the bathroom and it was a gain from last week, I decided to do my workout for the day which was a high intensity interval training. After the exercise, I bathe and weighed again and it was an increase on the scale. I wish to address this in my post today.

I had been discouraged over and over about this issue in my journey towards losing weight. I mean, starting a new exercise plan with great expectations of a cooperation from the scale only for you to sight a bad gain at the first weigh in, urgh...

Week 21 Weigh-in: Overeating

Overeating is the process of eating excess food in relation to the energy expended by a person. There are a thousand and one scientific explanations that is given to what happens before, during and after overeating. I want to explain overeating as it relates to me.

I mostly have this experience when I think I am too hungry or when I enjoy the meal or when the food is my favorite. I think as much as it is easy to explain overeating, it starts from the mind then the mouth and the most effect is felt in the stomach then the waist in that order.

Little Beginnings

The Bible says "do not despise the days of little beginnings". Zechariah 4:10

In the spirit of keeping a streak for 20 weeks straight and 200 posts on this blog, I have decided to give something away. I wish an ardent viewer takes this away, it's for NIGERIANS alone. I promise to do this more often and probably bigger too.
