Some of my cyber stamping friends and I are having a "Choose to Lose" challenge...2 teams verses each other. Raindrops v. Dewdrops... I'm a Raindrop.

The first week, well, I was sick, E was sick, I hate exercising...etc.

But this week, I got on board and exercised, drank lots of water (though I already do that naturally), tried to eat less and lots more veggies...

Since we are going on a day trip tomorrow, I weighed in today...a day early.



I lost 2 pounds. If my measurements are right, I've also lost 3.5 inches.

Losing some weight was a new years goal which actually seems to be happening! I've never lost weight before since I was blessed with the sort of genes that allowed the pregnancy pounds to melt off with out me doing a single thing.

So, I'm pretty pleased...

6 more weeks to go!

Congrats on being a loser Dawn!
I was just reading back on your blog. I read it a bit before Christmas and forgot about all the fairies in and around your house. Too cute! Thank goodness the kids rescued the fairy house.

I could "hate" (hahaha) you for having a gene pool that makes losing weight so easy!! I can exercise and drop everyone, always feel hungry and the weight just barely creeeeeeps off......

Glad to hear that you are more sucessful!!
Keep it up!
