Day 4 of the "Slimmest Winner" Challenge!


This is day 4 of our first Biggest Loser "Slimmest Winner" Challenge!

About day 3 -  Whether you're new to making a meaningful dietary change or just getting back into the swing of one, I'm sure you know what I mean -  Day 3 can be uncomfortable as we complete the process of burning through the glycogen stores in our liver and "go looking" for other sources of fuel.  On day 3 we frequently feel edgy and grumpy.  Our antennae are up for potential munchables.  The best source energy is the wonderful, pre-digested, golden fuel we've been packing around our middle, our hips and thighs!!!  Here's what one of the Challengers had to say:

I'm so glad day 3 is over!  I know I'm in fat-burning when I'm not hungry, have energy, and can think clearly ...  I was certainly not there yesterday ... but today is a much better day! When I restarted for the Challenge, I didn't allow myself extra snacks because I knew that would just prolong the process and discomfort.  I just kept reminding myself that the purpose of the effort was to burn through my own stored fat.  It's ok to be a little hungry on day 3.  I was glad it was Sunday and I could just chill out. I also took several walks because, like you told me Polly, it's easier to change my environment than it is to change my mind!"
