Totally vain and superficial me (I am what I am).

What I'm about to show you is sorta scary, well it is for me. I'm scared to be photographed in such an unflattering way.  I'm looking at the picture and wishing for a few cute kids to cover up the pooch.

I'm doing a weight loss contest with a few friends of mine and besides the obvious benefits of a smaller, healthier body, there's also a big ol' pot of money at the end.  If I were a better person just the health benefits would motivate me but I'm not.  Me likey the money.

My picture from Week One is frightening (I'm never wearing those clothes in public again) and I'm not brave enough to share that bad boy with you.  So you get the one from yesterday.

Deep breath now.  I'm going to share the Week Two picture.  Wait, one more deep breath.  Okay, I'm as ready as I'm going to be (be kind please).

Yep, there's some work that needs to be done.  I also need to get a full length mirror to make these pictures more effective.

Yesterday I was down 2.5 pounds.  Pretty nice is what I'm thinking.

Happy Monday!


  1. You look great! But I totally understand the having issues with body parts even if other people don't notice them (can you say Anjie wants a lift?).

    2.5 lbs is awesome- keep at it you know you'll feel better if you do!

  2. Can I say something honestly to you? You look AMAZING! And I don't mean amazing for having four kids. I mean AMAZING! I am proud of you lady! I'm proud of you being healthy too! There's nothing wrong with good old exercise and healthy eating that's for sure! Good luck! If you win the money what are you gonna do with it? How much money are we talking here?

  3. Can I just say ditto to Lucinda's comment? You are a beautiful woman--one those ladies who becomes more beautiful every year. I'm serious!

  4. hmm. the before picture looks good/great/awesome to me! Love the editorial comments on the photo. 2.5 pounds is huge ... but I don't see where on earth you will lose more!

    If I look 1/2 that good after 4 kids I won't stop doing an annoying happy dance ... forever.

  5. Uhhhh.... I alrady thing you look awesome!! Lets switch bodies okay!!!


I wanna hear what you have to say, so write. Pretty please.
