25 lbs and GROWING!!!


No clue.. either way, went to weigh in yesterday 4/16/05 morning... down exactly 2lbs... for a total loss of 25.2 lbs... WHOO-HOOO for me!! Tooting my own horn, patting myself on my back, and CAN NOT believe I've made it this far and am continuing with no problems!!!

Well some people name their fat they lose and have a baby name for it and call it their baby.. and then people make comments like "wow, your little guy is growing fast" etc. Cute.. I have no clue what to call my baby... maybe just call it my arse! nice.. never had an arse to speak of anyway.

Went to the mall yesterday wearing this new jogging out fit.. cute pink capri pants and a little matching jacket... Dylan made a comment that I don't have a tummy anymore... god I love that kid.. bought him some $60 shoes, Tim and I some cheapies at Payless.

Sometimes reality DOES NOT bite!

Okay.. folding laundry last night... watching tv... waiting for my ww walking friend Carolyn to call me to go walking. She said she couldn't go until later, I had laundry to do, so I figured I would get that out of the way and then we could go walking. So I'm standing there folding, and she calls me and says she is just getting home and wants to eat some dinner and will call me in about a half hour to go walking.. and it dawns on me.. it's been 3 full months that I've been on WW and I just can not believe not only my success, but Carolyns, and Sarahs success. We started together and we are still in this together. We have added new people along the way, but the 3 main people are still going strong. I'm in shock. None of us have fallen off, or given up, we've all loved it, stuck to the program. It's just great. It was a complete smack in the face.. and what is strange to me is that it doesn't feel like a diet, it just feels like ok, this is it, this is my life.. this is the way it will be... is very empowering.. I know that I still have at least 13 more lbs to lose to my goal, but that is the farthest thing on my mind in comparison to a normal diet where you are constantly thinking "ok only 5 more lbs to go, then I'm off this diet" or "only 6 more weeks to go" or whatever.. it's not like that.. very strange.. maybe there is some kind of signal that is sent to our brain from ww to reprogram us. I don't know.. whatever it is, it's working and I love it!

Check out my website!

I started a website a few weeks ago.. I did it on a free website that actually does everything for you.. so it's a little cheesy, but it only took me 20 minutes or so to make the first part. I added the during ww a few weeks later.

Let me know what you think! I will be posting more pics on there from time to time!

Losing my ARSE in the battle of the buldge..

Okay... so I finally started ww.. the one program I NEVER wanted to join/participate in.. I figured counting points would be too tedious.. well.. I've lost 20lbs in under 11 weeks! Insane.. started Jan 17th, seems to be my day to start new programs.. you should see the results..

This is taken from an email from my neighbor Carolyn also on WW to a couple other neighbors also on ww!

Ok ladies... I went shopping with Mel last night. She bought this skirt that made me feel like an arse because I couldn't stop staring at her. HOLY CRAP. You really CANNOT tell how much weight she has lost with the clothes she wears currently! She's a little skinny mini! I say we nominate her for "What Not to Wear" so she can get a new wardrobe and stop wearing her workout clothes out side of the gym!!

and later after one of them looked at the pics on my website again from Carolyn.. she is my biggest cheerleader!

Yep! I was completely amazed! Blown away almost. This tiny little thing is hidden under mounds of baggy work out clothes! Oh Ladies! Here's something funny about last night. The Domino's pizza guy almost ran into the crate that holds the salt at the end of Glacier & Silverstone because he was staring at Mel. NO JOKE!! The 4 of us busted out laughing. When perfect strangers nearly get into an accident because of you, you know you look good!

lol, too funny.. well.. that's it for now!
