So, while down in the 'noke over the holidays, my parents decided we ALL needed to diet (Mom, Dad, Andrew and me) and that we would make it a little interesting. Whoever loses the most weight (though we're going with percentage of weight like they do on the Biggest Loser) will get a $125 gift card to the store of their choice. My parents are putting in the $100 and Andrew and I are putting in the $25. We're cheap. hehe
So, yesterday we had the official weigh in and let me tell you folks, it was NOT pretty! We all were shocked and appalled at what a month of holiday eating can do to a person! ugh! I was way too close to the 200 mark for comfort. ACK! I will not reveal anyone's weight, but we were all in desperate need to lose a lot.
I think my ultimate goal will be 40lbs (though I could absolutely stand to lose more than that), but we'll see if I last that long. A good 25 would be sufficient, but not ideal.
So, the contest ends April 1st (but hopefully the weight loss will continue into the summer), and to keep me accountable, I will be posting here every Friday letting you know how much closer I am to reaching my goal.
Famished Friday's seems like an appropriate name for these posts... especially since it's only 9:30 in the morning and I am already starving just at the thought of being on Weight Watchers again. WW is our household diet of choice, by the way. I do love Weight Watchers and I feel confident in the following this program to lose weight. It's the only one I've ever found that really works.
So... here I am... fat and hungry... but soon it will change and these hunger pangs will go away and I will be thinner and happier and healthier! So, here's to losing weight!
And now it's time to break out the Wii Fit that we got months ago and have only used... mmm... 3 times. yeah.
(P.S. - I will post pictures from Christmas soon... but I still have not put them on my computer. Plus I got Photoshop for Christmas and I want to play with it before posting pictures anyway.)
Happy New Year!
