It's my birthday present to ME! (I'm so happy!)


Name that movie!


My birthday is next week. I'll be 36 years old. Yep! Closer to 40 than 30. Twice the age of the kids starting college in the fall. 

I was thinking that our weight-loss contest shouldn't end until after my birthday. I know--it's totally selfish. I just want some kind of motivation to avoid a birthday-week snarf fest. (I'm not going to reveal the exact day of my birthday--my age is enough info for the internet). 

What do you think? 

The contest is supposed to end this coming Friday (January 16th). Does anyone object to extending the deadline to Friday the 23rd? (We'd have the final weigh-in on that day.)

I haven't even consulted Sara about this, so possibly she'll be the one to object. 

Any strenuous objections? Concerns? 

Those who are already doing really well are the ones whose opinions I'm most interested in, as they potentially have the most to lose if some sneaky dark horse decides to lose 10 pounds next week. 

Talk to me.

P.S. That's a picture of me on my 10th birthday. It looks like I'm about to blow out a few blood vessels along with the candles.

I don't know that I'm one of the ones "doing really well" but I say give it one more week. I didn't realize it was already going to end this Friday!

I think one more week is a great idea!

Crap! i should have started my own weight loss challenge and ended it Sunday. My birthday was Moday and someone who calls herself my friend delivered a homemade birthday cake AND a HUGE box of chocolates! I was about to throw the remainder of the chocolates away when I discovered........

(drum roll please).......the box had TWO LAYERS OF CHOCOLATES! I couldn't bring myself to throw away that much perfectly good chocolate:(

Needless to say I think the six pounds I lost over the past month crept back on in the last 48 hours. AAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!

OOOH, yes please, with sugar on top! Oh, wait, forget the sugar, how about some stevia instead. (love the stuff - especially the flavored kind! Check it out!)

Happy Birthday Holly!

I don't mind one way or the other- one more week just gives me more time to keep going down!

I need that extra week. I didn't do my workout tonight... But I did watch the biggest looser on my computer and that got me a little motivated....
