I can't honestly say I'm disappointed - because I am scared to try out! BUT it was my knee and not my fear of failure that held me back this time. I still haven't tried skating on the knee, but yesterday was our first day of our derby biggest loser type challenge! $20 to enter, and top 4 winners get a portion of the total (50/30/15/5 I think). And even after just situps and push-ups, my knee hurts today. Sooo brace is back on, naproxen on schedule. AND the worst news of the night (even though I knew what was coming) was the number on the scale - 200.2 lbs. All time high. Now I know why the people on the Biggest Loser cry when they see that starting number.
So here are my starting numbers:
Weight - 200.2
Waist - 42"
Hips - 46"
Situps - 24 in 1 minute
Pushups - 4 regular, 19 on knees in 1 minute
My goal is 5 lbs the first week, and 1.5 lbs each week thereafter.
