how YOU doin?!

I feel like I should report at least a little bit!

If you are keeping up on the facebook page, you will know that in two weeks I lost 5.6lbs, of which I am very proud! Well, hopping on the scale this morning (because getting on the scales before I am really supposed to is a sickness of mine), I am down 7.2lbs which means......I am in the 170's! 179.6 (remember I 'fessed up to binging a little before the start date and put on a few....disasterous) to be exact and it feels good to not see an "8" anymore (and hopefully never again!). 12.8 more pounds to get to my goal weight....and then maybe, just maybe, I'll try to get 10 more off. Or maybe I have other plans.......we'll have to wait and see! ;) Either way, this is the best I have felt in a long time and I am suuuuuuuper happy about it!

This weekend is going to be my first real test, though. My husband and I are going with some friends out of town, and many of the plans include specific restaurants they want to eat at....."oh! we HAVE to eat breakfast here!" and "we MUST get dinner there!" and "those pancakes are to DIE for" Oh my. Oh my oh my. Oh my thighs oh my. It's ok, though. I have really been watching my intake this week and when I have cleaned I have done so with such vigor as to make Richard Simmons proud. I am going to be packing a bag full of my healthy snacks so as not to over-eat at dinner (or breakfast, for that matter) Wish me luck! My scales are coming with so I can do my official Sunday morning weigh-in.....and then I can relax a little since Sunday is my cheat day......and I am ready for that, Lord knows!

If you haven't yet, join the facebook event! The only thing you have to lose is the weight! 15 weeks left til summer! Share your recipes and tips, and get encouragement from all the foxes!

And as if the fb event and the a fox blog weren't plugs enough.....I now present you with my entry to Progressive Insurance's Help Flo audition......that's right!  I entered!  Right now, I am just trying to get a lot of hits on their site, and get a LOT of positive comments to try and ensure that the judges notice me.  The top ten are decided by judges, then it goes to public vote.  SO, there is nothing to "vote on" right now, but check it out and leave me some LOVE!  After the public votes on the top 10, the top 3 are flown to L.A. for an audition, and whoever wins that gets to be in a commercial with Flo.  Amazing?!  I think so!  So here ya go!

  1. Good job! I am so happy for you! I am trying to lose weight before the summer too. I started on January 21st and have lost around 23 pounds so far. My biggest tip is to cut out bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, etc. after lunch everyday. It gives you a chance to work off all that heavy food plus you tend to eat a healthier dinner (lean meats and vegetables) if those aren't an option whether cooking in or going out.
