[talk: Being a Loser]

WELL - it's down to the final week.

For those of you who DON'T know, I've been participating in "The Biggest Loser" with some of my family members. We each put in $200 (to make us super motivated) and gave a deadline of 3 months. Friday, August 1, is the big Weigh-In.

It's a very close race ... I'm down "1*" lbs (can't say - my competition could be watching *wink*) and 4.5 inches around my waist. OH you have NO IDEA how much I want to win ... I've taken this seriously since I got back from NY (couldn't do it on that trip - you can understand why, I'm sure *grin*) ... But my competition has been stepping it up over the last couple of weeks. My weight continues to drop - and I'm getting so close to my final goal. WHOO HOO! Four pregnancies in 3.5 years really took a toll on my little frame ... 20lbs on me, is like 50lbs on another.

SO - fingers crossed - August 1st, here I come!!

Before: (Notice that I'm hiding behind my son and hoping that black will hide everything, except for the fact that the turtleneck makes my short neck look like a sausage stuffed in too small of a casing)

After: (well - this is the last pic taken of me 2 weeks ago - I've lost a few pounds since then...)

You look amazing! Well done!! I sooo need to do that too. I have gained a ridiculous amount of weight over the last 18 months.
I love your blog by the way. I find myself checking it daily to see what you've been up to :)

Way to go my friend. You look amazing in your last picture. I sure hope you win. If you challenged your dad, I hope you beat the pants off him.
