After being almost three weeks overdue i was getting excited and ready to 'wee on a stick', i had even told myself that i would tell my sister what i was suspecting (dh already knew) when that time of month arrived. Disappointed, i've been working my tail off but not being as careful about what i was putting in my mouth... and it showed when i hopped on the scales today. While i know that water weight is typical while going through this, i let the numbers on the scale mess up my day today, and ate pity chocolate (somehow carrots just don't do the trick). Here's the deal, i am not going to let my appetite win this battle... this morning wasn't the best foodwise - and has anyone else noticed that it's hard to exercise when they are wallowing in 'Poor Me' land? Enough, i am not taking residence there... i refuse to change my address! i live in Sparkland where people are losing weight and taking their lives back, and i am going to be one of them!!!

Well, today was the first day of Sparks Boot Camp... and i was excited and a little worried but now having completed the first video, i am TOTALLY stoked! What a way to bring in the New Year! A team of us is also doing the Discovery National Body Challenge, and each of the teammates are just the coolest people on the planet (if you are reading this and haven't joined yet, check us out, i promise you'll love everyone on the team) - so i know the next eight weeks are going to be wonderful! i am so enjoying 2009!
i need to get my measurements recorded in here and as soon as i get my hubby to take a picture of me then i will have everything ready to record the 'before picture' so that i can see 8 weeks from now how all the hard work has paid off! Thank you so much Sparkpeople for being such an amazing website!

My little brother's wedding is tomorrow! Wearing heels and a bridesmaid's dress isn't my idea of having a good time but i am soo excited that he is marrying Tasha - they are perfect for each other!
Timmy was born premature and immediately lifelined to Johns Hopkins where they told us he would be blind (because of his time in the incubator) by first grade and definitely retarded because of how early he was born. A lot of prayers and love later i am happy to report that he is healthy and an amazing little brother (not that i am biased or anything - i love each of my 4 brothers and sister). Not only did God spare him both of the diagnoses the doctors had decided he was going to be faced with in the future, but he is an avid mountain biker, hiker and a brilliant graphics designer - his imagination is unreal!!
On a side note, the bridemaid dress i spoke of earlier... well, when i was fitted for it this spring they didn't have one big enough for me to fit into (this was before i knew about Sparks). Freaked out, i planned on dieting (but had no idea how), buying a girdle and paying a lot of money to have the dress altered. Thanks to Sparks, when the dress arrived a month ago and i went for alterations it fit well (i didn't even have to buy the Spanx), the only thing i had to do was pay to have the straps raised. At final fitting the dress was too loose!!! Thankfully there is a strap at the waist that is supposed to be tied that i can show my 'new' waist off with - i actually have a bit of a waist now!!! i will be adding pictures of Billie and myself in this dress as soon as i can.
