TheKarenS's Journal, 23 May 2011

This is my weight from Friday morning, it's just been an exhausting week and a very busy weekend.

The weigh-in for the diet contest - well, let's just say I've been working through some anger and trying to focus on the bigger picture.

My boss kept putting off the weigh-in on Wed, and i kept pushing for it (mainly because i was was fasting until weigh-in). As the end of the day approached, i reminded him that the one girl (main competition) was leaving soon. He waited around until she left, and then called me in the office to talk.

The rules were that we weighed in and then paid $2 per week for 17 weeks. We would base the final results on BMI so that it would be fair for tall or short people (one really fat girl is very short). At the end, the one with the largest drop in their BMI would get all the money. As a bonus, the boss was goin to throw in an extra $200.

As it turns out, she and the other big girl never paid in. Even though they made some attempts and talked about it, now they say they were never participating. As far as the other people, i don't know if they ever paid in or not. And no, i haven't asked about the bonus. The weird thing is, that he has delayed totaling everything until i go back next week on Wednesday, even though he keeps saying that he knows i won. I wonder if he's trying to crash diet in the mean time, or if he's trying to get the others to pay in - i don't know what's behind that.

Needless to say, I'm disappointed. I'm also very angry. I have weighed, eaten in moderation, exercised in all manner of weather, calculated, planned, etc. But the big thing is that I've put up with a lot of crap at work from this girl, and my one redeeming moment is gone. I just keep telling myself that i was on a diet anyway, and that i was doing this anyway, and I'm healthier. It cost me nothing and I'm healther, and they're exactly where they were 4.5 months ago. Except the one girl who has tortured herself with diuretics and laxatives for most of this time.

As far as my diet since, I've been ok. I ate out Wed nite and did ok, but ate out Sat and went way over on calories.

This is my 40 wk mark, and will post my stats this coming week.
146.6 lb Lost so far: 30.4 lb.    Still to go: 6.6 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Despite all the crap, you are definately more healthy and another week or two should be nothing for you. You have been so good, just a little more time. It sounds like the others fell by the way side. It probably has been trying to get the others to pay in. Be patient. You have done the best. Regardless of the outcome, you know that and we do too. Calm so it doesn't cause workplace friction. Don't splurge to much in case they are weighing in next week. Drink water too to continue to flush your system. I am very proud of you.

Thank you so much for your support - i really appreciate it. It's funny, at times I can hear you encouraging me ("no friction, don't splurge, drink water!") Thank You!
