New Side Bar




And on the right side of the blog, we have a new sidebar! My weight loss tracker.

Yup.

I went to go see my Ob/Gyn two weeks ago and noticed the word "obese" on the top of her chart.

Ouch. I'm officially in that all-too-often-mentioned category.

One of my favorite shows is "The Biggest Loser" because it's very inspiring. On last season's, there was a couple with young children. When the mom was asked why she wanted to be on the show, her response was:

"I need to lose weight before my kids realize I'm fat."

I love it! So I'm taking on the challenge. I've had several attempts to lose weight in the past...I'm not sure why they didn't work. Maybe I wasn't ready? Maybe I was cheating too much?

No more excuses. I'm FINALLY going to do it. Watch me!

Tonight, I re-joined Weight Watchers, renewed my membership to Curves and I'm off and running (well...how about we start with walking??).

I'm going to update my blog every Monday with my weight loss. That's when I will be attending my Weight Watchers meetings...after FHE.

Stay tuned!!

Good for you! If you ever need someone to work out with, Carlie and I go and walk in Sabino Canyon in the morning when it gets cooler and our ward has a workout group on tues and thurs mornings at 9am at the Fairmount chapel. The kids come and just play with all the nursery toys while we work out.
