Weight in...Thursday?!?!

So I have gotten a few emails in the past week asking how I was doing on my weight loss. If I was still trying to lose weight or if I had given up on the plan!! LOL

For those of you that are new to my blog - I have a bet with my hubby that I can lose 69 pounds by the time he returns in or around March 2010. If I do, he has to take me to the Dominic Republic so I can learn to kite surf!!!

So.... I started my diet in April - and just to catch everyone up... I was 214 pounds! (I know can you believe I actually admitted that here on my blog?!?!? But hey ya'll are my closest friends right - and I know you are not going to go and actually TELL anyone! Are you?!?! Bahahaha)

And at today's weigh in I was............ (this is normally where you would hear the intense music or drum roll or some sort of fanfare) 181 lbs!

So that brings my stats to 33 pounds lost, with 36 pounds left to go!!!!

All in all not tooo bad.... I did have a little bit of a set back when I was so sick and in and out of the hospital/Dr offices so much. And even now with the bone spur on my foot (yes it still hasn't been resolved yet!!!) my exercise is much more limited than it was!

My next big hurdle is the 179 pound mark! If I can get there - I will officially have LOST more weight than I have to lose..... and that is a huge mile stone for me!!!!

Having lost this weight has been a huge inspiration so here is a sneak peek of one of my new files that will be available soon! (Don't forget the big announcement is coming soon!!!)

Hope you all have a great day!

Until Next Time!

Congrads on the weight lose! That is fantastic! At first I thought how brave telling everyone your weight but then I thought about it and HE** no you should be proud of your weight (loss)! Some day I hope to say the same for myself but for now I just keep using the excuse that I don't have time to exercise.
