Summer of Me Competition

Summer of Me

I am finally in the weight loss competition with my sister-in-law Janeen and some of her friends. Christie at http://babytealeaves.blogspot.com has been kind enough to do the leg work to get this competition started. Now all I have to do is find the time to actually start working out. I think it goes with out saying that working out is easier said than done when you have a six week old baby at home to take care of. But I am going to give it a go anyway. I have lost 46 pounds of the baby weight that I gained so far and my goal is to loose 30 more pounds. Not all 30 pounds is baby weight... I only have 14 more of that to loose. However, I changed jobs two years ago and when I changed jobs I packed on the pounds, that is where the additional 16 pounds is coming from! Regardless, I need to fit into my work clothes by August 17.I couldn't think of a better way to get motivated. The competition starts on June 23rd, which is good because I can't REALLY workout until then anyway, and it ends July 25th. Wish me luck! And sorry to say this Janeen, but go ME!
