30 by 30

My birthday is in a little over 6 months and to celebrate I want to lose tons of weight and look great :o)  I have decided to do a weight loss thingy on my blog for the next 6 months in hopes of me being able to achieve my goal by being accountable to you!!!  I am naming this weight loss journey 30 by 30 because my goal is to lose 30 lbs by the time I turn 30 years old!!  I know it is a lot of weight to lose in only 6 months but I figured aim high and hope for the best :o)

I am going to do a weekly weight in and write up some sort of work out routine.  I need to be held accountable and I am counting on you to do that for me :o)  I have let myself go this year and I am not happy.  I have not been this weight since....I was pregnant with Kobe...like since I was 9 months pregnant with Kobe!!!  This is not acceptable!!!  I am too good to myself and I have been using food as a way to deal with what is going on and that is not gonna fly no more!  I need to find a different way to deal with my emotions.  Food is there to enjoy in a positive way not there to comfort me!!!  Sorry this is not a pity party this is just a little bit of honesty for me and for you!

Now, I have already started watching what I eat and I need to start moving my butt!!  If you want to join me in my weight loss adventure then by all means let me know and I will help hold you accountable too.

Go for it, Helga! I think being accountable to people really makes a difference! Didn't you do this a year or more ago, and it made a difference? Can't wait to see the progress.

You go, girl!!!

First of all, I think you are gorgeous already, but then, loosing weight to be healthy is a very good thing. My girlfriend helped me be accountable and so far I have lost 8.5 pounds and am still going strong. You will be amazing.

On another note, I can't find the comments about the Vampire post....

Have a good week. Rosemary
