186 Days........

Wednesday, September 25, 2013


That's right my sparkies...I am going BACK to Vegas.. it will be my 5th trip....and this time it's going to be extra special because I'm going with my best friend Amy!!! Some of you may know of her...WHOVIANGIRL23..yup a fellow sparkie! She is like amazing and I'm super excited to finally meet her in person! I never thought you could be best friends with someone you never met but umm it's possible! :) So yea..I have my countdown going until I get to go back to my favorite city and see my friend :) Yipee!! I also am going to see two of our friends that we saw last trip who won't have seen me it's going to be fun to see them looking fabulous. :)

If I stick to my average loss goal of 2 pounds per week I will be down another 50 or so pounds by then. I also will have hit onederland for the first time in my adult life. As much as I hope to reach it. I know that I will look 100% better than I did last year or the year before and I will feel like a million bucks either way. Gonna work my tail off but overall this is a lifelong commitment..not just for a trip.

It was my son's first day of Pre-K today. He was really excited but I cried and cried..I think it took me almost an hour to really settle down. He didn't cry..he had a blast..seems to really like school and can't wait to go back tomorrow. I'm really happy he is enjoying it. It's hard enough now but to have him hate it and cry would just make it worse.

In other news..I need new clothes. I look like a frump all the time because all my clothes are too big and all my OLD clothes are still a little too small. I'm hoping I can stash some money away for some new clothes next month but that depends on how bills fall..hoping the hubs can sell his subs from his car and make some extra money for bills. :) Speaking of clothes I can't wait until I can buy new clothes for VEGAS. haha

And in weight loss news this week started out rough but I'm back in full force today. Finally started Phase 2 in my strength training DVD and burned 301 calories. Woof phase 2 is a rough one but it's goin to be so amazing once I get going into it. Hoping to hit my 2 pound goal and be around a 246-245 mark...of course 245 would be nice :) But I'll take what I can get.

Football tomorrow! :)

One more lovely picture for you before I end this...

P.S. EG8383 ...surprise!! Only took me a few hours rather than a few days...haha :)

You will be looking even more fabulous up in Vegas. Ya will be painting the city redder! I get sad just thinking that my baby will one day be in school lol. Praying you come across some money so you can splurge and get some cute outfits real soon! Have a great weekend! =)

    So exciting! I'd like to go to Vegas at some point, we were planning to go this year but my fiance proposed so that was put on hold lol. I'm sure you'll be down so many pounds by the time of your trip. Can't wait to see the pics!

    I'm so jealous of you 2! You're going to have a blast. And it's so lovely to see 2 people that met on this site that get on so well. I have a friend on here who i've been friends with since we both joined SP in 2008! We have so much in common. I would absolutely love to meet her in person one day, but I live in England and she live in the US! I'm totally convinced we'll meet one day though, we have to.

Looking forward to watching you both work your behinds off for the next 186 days. You're both going to be smokin'. Vegas won't know what's hit them! emoticon

    I know you guys will have a great time! I have been to Vegas 3 times and I know I enjoy it every time! Use that new motivation for the trip to your advantage and push yourself! You can do it!

Better to have the new clothes issue trying to buy smaller than bigger!
