No, not you. Me (hopefully!).

Dh and I are implementing our very own BIGGEST LOSER competition. We are both struggling with our weight. We both lost like 50 lbs before I got preggo with Elijah. Then we both gained most of it back. Duh.

So now we're back at it. I'm actually pretty encouraged - I was able to do it last time. It was my first real success in the weight loss realm. So now I know I can do it again.

So we will be discussing it and coming up with weekly and monthly "rewards" as it were. Just small little encouragements for the weeks and the perhaps bigger, more motivating rewards for the monthly weigh-ins.

I know, men tend to lose easier than women - but I've got two things going for me.

#1. Dh has a "desk" job. He spends a lot of time on the phone or on the computer or in meetings (even "lunch" meetings). I, on the other hand, when I am up and at 'em in the mornings and doing my job well - I am SO TIRED by the end of the day - due to how hard I work PHYSICALLY!

#2. I am nursing. Hey, he's just "eating" a bunch of extra calories for me.

Now, before some healthy, skinny gal tries to warn me of the ills of dieting while nursing...don't worry about it. This is my fourth baby. I know how much/little I can eat and still maintain my milk. I'm not about to starve myself - it's about eating healthier foods and working hard during the day. It'll be okay. If little Elijah was not getting enough, I would change my eating rather than quit nursing - that's not an option.

Ok, isn't this exciting?!! I'll let you know more details as we determine them: when we'll start, what the terms are weekly/monthly, and of course I'll keep you updated as I....


Luv ya babe~
