This week at the WSOP I had a chance to meet both Sorel Mizzi and David Swanson at the Rio. Meeting Sorel made the competition seem more real and this helps with the motivation because the potential prize is so huge.
Dave gave me lots of encouragement and a few specific tips. He told me not to worry too much about the scale because I am likely adding muscle as I lose fat. Instead he said I should focus on making sure my waist gets a little smaller each week.
So even though I only dropped 0.5 pounds this week it is game on and I am going to give the rest of this challenge 110%!
