Last night was the 2012 kick-off for the Biggest Loser competition in Greenville. If you have read my blog over the last year, you know that the Bacon Lovers (Anonymous) team that I was a part of last year won the competition. We were slightly competitive.

Well, even though I didn’t plan on it, I have decided to be part of a team again this year. There are three of us from last year’s team returning, with some new blood as well. We are calling ourselves Sizzlean. A leaner form of bacon. (Remember that product from the 80’s?)

So, if i didn’t plan on doing this, (and maybe even didn’t want to), why am I?

Because losing weight, and even maintaining weight is hard. Staying motivated to eat well is hard. And doing it on your own with no motivation, encouragement or accountability is hard. Here is what I wrote in my journal last night:

So, once again, I am teaming up with people who are like-minded and ready to go. We aren’t going to try to be super competitive like we were last year, but we are going to try to cement the changes we made last year into our lives for good. And I am hoping to finish losing what I have left to lose.

What do you need to do that you can’t do on your own and how are you going to do it?
