1 day down and 50 pounds to go

I took a picture of my scale tonight. For the challenge Lana and I are doing you are suppose to post the picture on your blog, but as much as I love all my readers and lurkers, I'm just not there yet. So will email it off and enter myself in this challenge and hope for the best. I'm not in it for the prizes, although those would be fun-I just want to feel better. We walked today on the path at the park. If you live near Landrum and haven't tried it, we love it!!! I want to start adding in some of the fitness equipment and some other things, but for today by the time we finished my lower back and hip were killing me. I am soooo out of shape. But I refuse to let this be another sit around and add to the pounds summer so we kicked it off with a bang. Tomorrow is our last day with students. Today after the 5th grade celebration I only had 3, so who knows if I will have any for our 1/2 day tomorrow.

Tomorrow's goal-drink my water :)


My rewards to myself:
10 pounds-pedicure
20 pounds-massage
30 pounds-new outfit
40 pounds-girls night
50 pounds-weekend away

And we're off . . .

If you scroll down a little you can see the picture I posted a few weeks ago of the startling reality I am facing with my weight. Since then I have done nothing, but be stressed and eat lousy. So as I face summer, time off and time to rest, I am joining my friend lana for a challenge here To be fit and fabulous by the fall. Lana has a great post about her goals here and I should probably follow her lead and make a list and post it up, but I'm not going to. I am ready to feel good and to feel better about being me and to be comfortable in my own skin again. I want to shop some place other than "the fat store" and to not have to go up another size.

What better time than now, not next monday or next week, but right now. I have the entire summer off and can rotate relaxing and exercising and be ready to face a new year :)

Care to join us?
I plan on walking and exercising lots and am counting on Lana as my chief motivator and cheerleader :)

What I really want to REMEMBER is . .

no matter what:

that I am doing and seeking God's will.

that I am trying to do the best I can as a Mom

that I am trying to be a Godly Wife

that I am the friend my friends need me to be
