Date Night

So Saturday night, my hubby and I went on a date with some of our awesome friends (who happened to be related to us). I wanted to kind of get cute since I rarely try to be cute and I figure... I lost 14 lbs dangit! I need to get dolled up! So I got ready and asked my hubby to take a picture. He was less than enthusiastic about it so I made a funny face but... here is a date night pic. I think it will be an awesome reference for the future!


On a completely different note. I wasn't really sure what to post after the first months results! Since this is my journal... first I want to do a happy dance! {Throws hands in air and dances around in a circle to the tune of "we are the champions"!} Next... THANK YOU!! Seriously, you have no idea how much this competition is going to change my life (and has already!). I've been fat for years... and never been motivated enough to really stick to losing the weight. I'm not just here for support, or to shed a few pounds, I'm here to CHANGE WHO I AM!!! I am going to come out of this a new woman! I never realized how competitive I was until I saw all you gals posting the lbs dropping off you. YOU MOTIVATE ME TO WORK HARDER! Without this competition... I would probably have ALWAYS been big. I had just totally given in to the fat. I had upped the weight on my drivers license to more accurately reflect my weight (I only have to lose 5 more lbs before I weigh LESS than my licence states!). I went out and bought bigger pants, started shopping in the plus sizes, and I even gotten a Lane Bryant card.

So what I need to say is, "THANK YOU!" I worked really hard and I'm really excited that it reflected in the lbs dropped, and the extra $150 isn't so bad either. Keep pushing me to work harder and I promise I will do the same for you!

I wish your dh would be more supportive for you. He should be proud of you, you have lost a lot of weight! You are doing so good. I started last January and I have lost 80 pounds. Yes this competition helps but soon you will see all the changes you are making and make them habits, that's when you will really start seeing results and it sounds to me like you have already done that. Way to go!

By "less than enthusiastic" I just meant that he was a little confused as to why I wanted a picture taken...

Kari, I'm so excited to hear how excited you are! It feels GOOD, doesn't it? I can't WAIT to see you at the end of this. It's going to be awesome!

I agree, you need to slap your dh lol...but I get it, some guys just don't get it. I'm glad you did get a picture, but next time, put a big smile on that face regardless if he wanted to take one or not!

You are so inspirational... and definitely a force to be reckoned with... I can see you winning every month. Good job... you are definitely motivation for me.
ps... I am still trying to get my hubby to take my end of month one pics :)

Thanks for all your support and keeping me motivated with your comments :o) I'm so happy that even though we live a good distance apart I feel like we are still doing this together, it really helps me. I love your disneyland idea, and I can be a nanny on a vacation.

When I asked Michelle to take my pictures from a few days ago she was "less than enthusiastic" as well. I guess we'll have to drive our loved ones picture crazy for a while, they will see what its all for sooner than we think :o)

LOVE YOU!

Go you!! I never said it, but CONGRATS on winning the first month! Doesn't it feel great to see the weight dropping off?? It's totally helping motivate me.

Keep it up hun! You'll be able to cut up that Lane Bryant card by June. ;-)
