Saylor: 'When I don't work out, I don't feel as good'

FIT Staff
Dec 11, 2013

For the first time in this journey I have read thru the comments that have been on the Firelands In Training website that is connected to the Sandusky Register and the Norwalk Reflector. 

I know I could’ve done better, BUT I do NOT appreciate someone saying that I took an opportunity away from someone else. 

This was an opportunity given to me, and I am grateful for it.  I may not have succeeded in losing weight, but I have succeeded in learning how to live a healthier lifestyle.

That being said: It has been an OK week.

Everyone knows the bug that you can’t quite shake, well I have it. Yes I know that some will think this is yet another excuse. You don't know what I'm going through, nor what I have been through.  

I have not worked out this past week.

Yes I regret that, and I have realized that when I don’t work out, I don’t feel as good about myself. 

My food choices are constantly getting better.

I am continuing to make better choices; most of the time I am choosing vegetables in place of starches, such as potatoes.

I am working toward not having potatoes at all.  

I am trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables like oranges and apples that haven’t been pre-sliced and packaged.

To the other contestants, keep up the wonderful work.  You both are an inspiration.



Yes you did. You took a gym membership, trainer and meal plan away from someone who would have made use of it. If that isn't taking an opportunity away then I don't know what is. You aren't affiliated with the gym or trainer anymore because you stated you could do better on your own. Someone else would have made 100% use of those resources that you discarded.
