Time for a Change

Recently I have noticed that my clothes just don't fit me. I've stepped on the scale, I've had to lay down on the bed to zip my jeans. Why is it when I was in highschool I looked HOT in tight jeans - now I just look, um not? It just didn't REALLY hit me until yesterday. I decided I needed a few new shirts so went to a local store here. There is NOTHING that tells you that you are fat like a 3 way dressing room mirror. I'm still trying to convince myself that they were magnifying my figure but I'm sure that isn't the case. Fortunately I have a little bit of motivation over at Baby Tea Leaves so we're going to fix this figure!

It isn't officially starting yet - but I'll just say that today I am 144lbs. I have never weighed this much without being pregnant. In fact, give me 8 more pounds and that's me 9 months pregnant. My goal is to be down 20 pounds by the time we move to Arizona but I don't know if that is realistic so for the challenge we'll say 10 and hope for more.

I am going through the same thing. My husband's work is having a fitness challenge which inspires us with incentives and rewards, but the real reward will be good health. If you're interested, check out - it's a free website that has some awesome features if you want to lose weight and get in shape.

Oh I so know that feeling. It happened when we were getting ready for our cruise last year. I looked at that person in the mirror and said, "who is that fat woman?"
After Christmas I started Weight Watchers. I swear by this program because I can eat anything and it does work.
I'm now 38 pounds down and still going. It can be done!

I admire your determination. As I get perilously close to buying bigger jeans, I keep thinking I should do something about it. Somehow, thinking that doesn't seem to be helping. LOL

oh i know just how you feel, sister. (that's why i'm doing it). there is something about crying in the dressing room (for me). anyway, if it helps, you're a whole 10 pounds less than I am right now! That's a start already!
