Anywho, I started trying to lose weight a few months back. At first I was doing really well, then Birthdays, Anniversary, Easter, Mother's day, Memorial Day all came along and the food tasted SOOOO good. Once I start, its like I can't make myself quit. My one cheat day turned into a week of having a "treat" every night (CURSE YOU SONIC AND YOUR DANG 1/2 PRICE SHAKES).
Every. single. time. the Girls and I got together, we complained about baby weight (as we shoveled forks full of sopapilla cheesecake in our mouths) so here we are doing something about it!
We are on day 3. Every time I want something bad for me to eat...I just look at my gnarly gut and all the sudden I am not hungry! I am also loving the support we are giving each other via text, fb chat and just good ol' fashion bantering. This lovely motivating contest will run for 6 weeks to start...all of us with different goals. Some big, some small. Mine is an XL goal! I sure hope it doesn't take me a year to lost the 50 ish pounds I want to lose! (I must be super excited, my exclamation points are a little out of control)
One of the girls used an awesome analogy, She said, " I need to lose the equivalent of 1.5 of my baby." Well, when you put it THAT way, I need to lose the equivalent of BOTH my kids. Who's the chunky monkey now? That's right, ME!!!
I am perfectly happy trying to blame my
I have no one to blame but myself really. But here is to making a change and having super supporting girlfriends to go through this battle together!
