I can't use Emma as an excuse anymore...

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

In 2005 I lost like 30+ pounds! I was so proud of myself...then in 2006 I got pregnant & had a baby and well didn't look like I did in 2005 anymore sadly! Emma is about to be 8 months old, though so I can't very well use the excuse that I just had a baby as to why I can't fit into my skinny jeans anymore! They are in my closet just glaring at me...and by the end of the year I plan to be back in them! I am being very smart, though and counting calories again and making healthy choices and I know it's going to take a while, but they say the longer it takes to come off the longer it stays off...right??? I have been doing this now for a couple weeks and I think I have lost not quite 10 pounds. I haven't been good about weighing on a regular schedule, but I've noticed a difference in how my clothes fit. Now a friend at work is trying to lose with me so every Thursday we go downstairs and weigh...whoever loses the most gets a fat free yogurt courtesy of the other!! Ha ha!

This was me in 2005 and my goal is to get back to this size...I can still wear that shirt, but it doesn't look as cute as it does in this picture!
