Weight Loss Sucks: The best has been set.

My sister and I both have been battling with our weight for years. The downfall is that well, we never seem to have enough motivation to stick with it. Since we're taking an epic road trip at the end of April, I decided since we both have barely lost any weight, we needed to make a bet with one another.

Whoever looses the most weight by April 27th gets a free massage at a spa while we're on a road trip. I plan on kicking her fat ass. (And if by chance my sister is reading this: I LOVE YOU!) We both weighed in almost two weeks ago, and plan on checking back in with one another every two weeks to see who's in the winning place.

I told myself back in January that I was going to start kicking it up a notch. But you know what sucks about trying to loose weight in January? IT'S COLD OUT! It's nasty out and there is snow. Same thing pretty much happened in February. Sure I joined the Weight Loss Challenge at the YMCA and hardly did a thing due to the crazy move too, but I cannot get motivated in crappy weather. Now that the weather is getting better, I've been walking and even RUNNING! I never thought I'd say this, but I actually enjoy running. I've been doing a combo of running/walking and it's pretty awesome. The first time around running always makes me want to die, but after that I'm pretty much golden.

Today I mixed in Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred DVD. This woman is fierce. She kind of scares me, but I did the first phase of the workout, didn't die and plan to do it again tomorrow.

I don't plan on updating this blog every week, whining about how fat I am because I do that enough in my own head, or anything like that. But I know there are a few bloggers out there that have been documenting their weight loss, and I thought why not!

I haven't gotten on a scale since almost two weeks ago, but I'm putting my weight out there so I can show how much I've lost.

Weight: 204 pounds
Jean Size: 15/16
Goal for April 27th: 20-25 pounds
Overall goal: 50-60 pounds or until I get down to a size 8


  1. My sis & I joined Weight Watchers a week ago. For me, exercising isn't the's the not eating right. I usually only eat once or twice a day, which causes me to snack, definitely not good.

    And putting your weight out there...VERY brave. I commend you. Maybe I need to do that, lol. Good luck!

  2. This is so awesome of you! As much as I have shared with my weight loss battles I have never shared my weight. You and I weight the same! I'm totally on the weight loss train right now too! Good luck to you girlie, if you ever need some motivation or tips let me know!! xoxo
