Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

Happy New Year to all, and a WI

Happy New Year to all.

I didn't manage to stay inside my set goals last night, but I'm still pretty proud of how I managed with regular "civilians"! haha

I moved some chocolates away from me at one point and the person next to me brought them back, and sat them right between us again. My first though, "HOW RUDE, right after I had said I need to move these away from me". Then, I decided that I was not going to be bothered by them. And so I didn't give them another though. Small steps in the right direction.

And for 2009 I decided that I would have an extra weigh-in. I know that in future I'll be mad if I didn't know what weight/inches I start this year with. So.... *drum roll please*

Weight - 275.6 lbs .... (you have no idea HOW GOOD that felt to type in those numbers)

Inches - Neck -16, Bust - 48, Ribcage - 42.2, Waist - 48, Hips - 52.2, Thigh (L) - 27.2 Thigh (R) - 26, Calf (L) - 18.8, Calf (R) - 18.1, Bicep (L) - 14.5, Bicep (R) - 14.6

Total Inches: 325.6

I've burned off 2.8 inches of fat and I've managed to burn off 2.9lbs of fat from my frame.


Tonight in celebration I'm going over to a friends house (she is struggling with weight loss post baby) and I'm going to make the Butternut Mac&Cheese for her and the family. Weeeeeeee. Spreading the love.

I KNOW! :) 4 days!!

I think I wanted to post it so that I couldnt use the 2.9lbs as a buffer as well...

i.e. I can still gain back 1 lb and post a lower number then the monday before....but....now I can't! HA on me!
