Something happens to you when you turn 40...physically. My older sister Trang (43) and I (41) are experiencing the same struggles with losing weight. Since it was too late to join the family bet (read Mel's blog for details), we decided to keep tabs on each other on a daily basis. We both want to reach 110 lbs....and since we weigh the same right now, we are going to lose this weight and reach our goal together! No bet between us...just encouragement. I'll be tracking our progress online (goto "mommy-makeover") if you want to push us on!
There is no excuse to be frumpy 40-somethings!!! I'm tired of looking so blah. I just ordered some make-up online yesterday. It's a good start.
Look what I found! This was taken exactly 3 years ago. I snapped this picture cause this was the lightest I've been since high school! I lost a lot of weight right before meeting the children (combination of stress and excitement). You can see for my frame (5 feet tall), jumping from 106 to 120 is a big deal! This picture is a good reminder that I was once there...and it is possible....I guess I just need to adopt more children!
