I am SO committed!

I am committed! I have tried to ignore myself, but--THAT'S IT!

I am tired of comments like:

"You look great for having 4 kids."
"Oh, come on, you're not that bad."
"You have a pretty face."

And my personal favorite:

"Is there a baby in your tummy?"
-Candy, 2nd Grader

Ok, that last one REALLY hurt. So, yeah, truth hurts!

There are a lot of websites out there committed to helping. I joined one back in November called Spark People. I LOVE it. My only problem was, I was concentrating so hard on making sure all my info was entered, I spent too much time sitting on my butt.


So, I am committed to sitting on my bum for one last time to make sure everything is ready.


I am committed to spending no more than 1/2 hour online entering information.

I am committed to ME!

I have found some other cool, fun contests to enter to help motivation:

And again, here's the link to MY page, but anyone can sign up for their own!

Twas the Week After Christmas

Well, it's not actually the week after Christmas, but I got this in an email and just HAD to share:

Twas The Week After Christmas

Twas the week after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore --
But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

Diet is not the word. I am not going on a diet. Diets are unhealthy and for people who only want to lose weight. I want to lose weight, but I want to do it RIGHT and I want to make changes that will stick. I want to make lifestyle changes.

Now that you all know, I cannot fail. I cannot let you down. Don't let me slack ok? Don't offer me your delicious buttery stick-right-to-my-thighs ANYTHING.

Not even a lick....LOL!

Ug! The last day of my beautiful 2 week vacation and I get to... pay bills. Sounds like fun, right?

NOT! At least I have money to pay my bills, though!


There. Short and Sweet. Short & Sweet Sunday..

Happy 'Back To Reality Monday' tomorrow for everyone who works for the Davis District!


This is the coolest dog ever!
