I Don't Even Want to Talk About It!!!

Today is the big Reveal for Fit Friday...And, yes, it is gonna be big. As in, I still am! This should not come as a surprise to any of you faithful Fit Friday-ers, I have struggled every step of the way! At my best, I had lost about 6 pounds, then I gained them back, then I lost 2. If you combine all those...that is an 8 pound loss!!! Pretty good. But if you look at the actual result, I have lost a mere two pounds. :(

Now, I could give a lot of excuses here, the holidays, a very sick baby, a husband who was NOT doing Fit Friday and was off work until Jan. 5. But the truth is, I ate too much junk, didn't exercise enough and became unreasonably addicted to Facebook, spending an inordinate amount of time sitting in front of a computer reconnecting with long lost friends.

I am back on the wagon now, so while I will probably not be the grand prize winner...I definitely see some good benefits. I am back to my regularly scheduled exercise agenda and I am now the proud owner of a Wiifit, so I am pretty faithfully exercising and now that most of the holiday goodies are gone, I am doing better on my diet.

Even better, Tigerfan has seen fit to start losing with me, so we are going to invest in a food scale and work together. He, by the way, has lost 4 pounds...yes, 4! How unfair is that, he has been trying for like a week! Ugh.

Anyway, I was going to bail out of the picture out of utter humiliation. But Missy our generous host did it, so at the last minute this morning, I made Tigerfan snap a picture and after a freakishly long time trying to figure out how to get a picture from my camera to my computer, I decided to own up. Please understand how much I love ya'll. This is an "untouched up" photo. I have on no make-up (I never even look at myself with no makeup) and I just finished walking on the treadmill...I promise, I will NEVER subject you to such horror again!

I really have no dignity left!

So, hope ya'll had more success...although I totally wanted to win and I hope to see you back here soon...hopefully seeing a slimmer, trimmer, healthier me!

Men should be banned from trying to lose weight with their wives. Rob wanted to lose weight, so he stopped drinking Mt. Dew and lost five pounds. Not even kidding.

Meanwhile, I would give my left arm to be your weight right now. Seriously.

Good luck!

I think that you did great! I am glad you tried! I never diet at the holidays! NEVER! I am getting up everyday and exercising now. I think if you keep with it now that the holidays are over you will see the results you wanted!

You can do it! Stay strong! I'm trying hard this year too. I have a good workout regime...but being sick hasn't helped this week! I plan on doing a mini-mini-triathalon with my hubby in April...that aught to keep me motivated!
Good luck! Can't wait to hear about your progess!
