Fittest Loser, 2019 – Week 2

February 24, 2019

“Said I can’t go on, not in this way
I’m a dream that died by light of day
Gonna hold up half the sky and say
Only I own me
And I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart underneath my skin
Oh I can feel my heart beating
Cause you make me feel
Like I’m alive again” – Adventure of a Lifetime, Coldplay

One adjustment contestants in the Fittest Loser competition need to make is seamlessly transitioning from one week to the next. As soon as you step off the scale at the conclusion of the first week, the second week has already started. I saw everyone made a meaningful drop this first week. Congratulations to all of you on that! It’s amazing how effective the change in diet is, plus the exercise you’ve put in as well. However, you should prepare for a different experience at the end of week 2.

This week you will eat the same, be disciplined with the amount of water you drink, continue to put in hours of work in the gym, but at the end of this week you may not see the same weight loss you did at the end of week 1. I hope that’s not the case and that you lose at least as much weight as you did in week 1. The fact remains, though, that over the course of a 12-week contest, there will be ups and downs. If it does turn out that at the end of this week you lose less than in week 1, do not be discouraged. Keep after it, and you will continue to see success.

One other change you might be experiencing – besides weight loss – is feeling like you’re in a bit of a fugue state. Last year after week 1 I remember feeling unfocused, forgetful, and struggling to concentrate after the first week. A fellow contestant reported the same experience. You’re putting yourself through a fairly dramatic change, and this is part of the adjustment. In time, it passes but it may persist yet for a few weeks.

Hope everyone has a great week 2! Remember, only you own your success.
