Biggest Loser: Week 6


What a busy life the past days!!! Need some breathing space. This post is late, but better late than never.


Loss 1.5 pounds. For a total of 10 pounds. Wohooo, I'm halfway to my short-term goal. I must say, it's been easier (not easy, just easier!) than I thought It would be and I realize that its because my mindset has changed. I can really stick to this "eating healthy" lifestyle because I feel good doing it.

Things that have helped me:

Using the myfitnesspal app to calculate how much calories I'm eating a day, has really helped me control how much I eat. I have eaten out a few days and being able to plan my meals according to what i'm going to eat that day has helped me. If I know lunch is going to be big, I'll have a smaller breakfast or a shake. Before I eat something, I'll log in to check the calorie count, to see if there is something in the meal I should skip or substitute. It's really been a helpful tool and also I believe part of my success to this point. An example, is that last week, I went to Chipotle for lunch and had a chicken burrito, that burrito alone is huge and has about 900 calories! But I planned it out and had a small breakfast, and only some fruit for dinner (was still full from that burrito) because I was out of calories, but I still got to eat what I was craving.


I said last week that I wanted to exercise more. I sincerely did try, but my 3 year old, decided to ruin my favorite exercise routine DVD (which is no longer produced). NOOOOO....so, although I did workout 3 times last week, It was mostly testing out new routines, to figure out which one worked better for me. I don't feel like the workouts were "good enough" workout sessions because I was still testing them all out. I have found a routine that works and I enjoy, so I will be doing that this week and hopefully will feel like I did a GOOOD fat/calorie burning workout! :)


I had 2 cupcakes on Sunday for my daughters b.day, they tasted so delicious, and I don't feel bad about it, because, I've been really good and I did not eat any further "junk food" for the rest of the day. Sometimes you just need to cheat. ha ha....

Hope you all had successful weeks.


  1. Great job, Natalie! 1.5 pounds is a great loss.

  2. Yay for a 1.5 pound loss! That is awesome! We all need a cheat day. You earned those cupcakes!
