I have about 95 pounds to lose. Just putting it out there so I have it where people can see it. I'll be joining up with the biggest loser club thing in a few but this is my statement to the world. I had planned on kicking of 2011 with weight loss goals, and then found out I was pregnant. Now that that is no longer an issue, I'm heading back to plan one. A better me in 2011. If you look over on the right you will see a place to "like" a Facebook page that I created along my a girlfriend for posting goals, concerns, questions, and for general support. Come join us!!
What kicked my butt in gear? Last night while going through old clothes, I came across a shirt that I refuse to let go of. You know the one. The one you looked uber hot in a decade ago and love too much to let walk out of your life. Well, I looked at the size on that shirt and realized that I was able to wear it when I first met my husband. I called him in the room and said "I didn't realize how tiny I was when we first started dating." He shrugged and agreed that I had been pretty little. I then looked up and said "I'm sorry." He just laughed and told me to get over it. But in truth, I am sorry. I haven't taken care of myself over the past 7 years and that's not good for either one of us.
So starting in the morning... I'm making a change and I need to put it out there to someone else who would see it and make me feel like I was being held accountable.
Here is a photograph of me in the shirt that screamed "Callie! Get off your butt!" last night. I will wear this shirt by Christmas if not sooner!
