Not much to say

ROTFL I just have to say that I saw the funniest movie recently. I have not laughed so hard in so long, and it was totally what I needed. We went to the good ole' dollar movies and saw "Yes Man", with Jim Carrey. I thought initially it would be somewhat like his movie "liar, liar" because it seemed like somewhat of the same concept. It wasn't though! If any of you have not seen it, I am still laughing about this part, and it made me think of a lot of you girls who met on the photography boards. There's this girl who is kinda kooky, and she starts this group called Jogging Photography! She says it's to get exercise while taking pictures LOL!!! She admits that yes, there's not much want for blurry photos, and Jim's character says " But anyone can take a picture standing still"! So, I throw out a challenge to y'all who are photogs. Try it, see how you do taking a picture that's great while jogging!

I also came across something in a readers digest magazine the other day. I haven't tried this, because it's not something I think would come out very cute for myself. But for some of you who want some extra motivation go to you upload a current picture of yourself and it will show you what your body will look like 20 lbs lighter. Who knows, could be fun!

I hope everyone is doing well. keep the positive outlooks...

well, one month down. Congrats to Karilynn, hon you deserve it!!! Thanks to all of you who said nice things about my photos, too bad I don't see even a bit of difference. I lost 7lbs and over 8 inches, 5 being in my thighs, but other than my clothes feeling a bit different, I feel the same...

Onto something more exciting, my son Ty who is in 6th grade took first place at his schools science fair yesterday!! He gets to go onto regional which will be next month. I was the proudest mama there ever was yesterday, I was actually jumping up and down and screaming when he called me from school to tell me the news. Only 6 projects out of hundreds made the cut so to speak, and he took first! Thanks for letting me brag on him for a minute ;).

Good job to all of you girls who have worked so hard. Look at the total combined weight we have lost, that in itself is so amazing! We should try to get a local business to match pound to dollar each one we lose and then donate it to a really great cause at the end, like breast cancer or something. I hope to see more of you this month for our girls night!

weigh In

Hey ladies! I have been out of posting mode for a bit, and I apologize. I weighed in this morning and am happy to say that I have lost all the weight I aimed for except for 1/2 a pound, which means I lost 7 1/2 pounds. I am happy with the weight loss, I am happier though about noticing a difference in my clothes fitting. I am still going for the inches to come off, I will have pictures and mesaurements up hopefully today :). All of you have been such an inspiration and I am so proud of y'all! I hope that we all keep the support and knowledge sharing as we continue to be the best we can each day. I know it has been a struggle for us, the first month always is-think of it like a training period for our bodies. Keep up the good work ladies!
