[talk: Not a Loser, But Still a Winner]

**sigh**

Need I say anymore??

So. I lost. Not by much - but I didn't lose enough pounds to win. My husband DID win, though, so I guess that's better than forking out money to those outside of our chequing account *smile*. And he's looking good - so that's a bonus for me *wink*. And I'm feeling pretty proud of myself regardless.

BUT DANG.

I am so competitive. I wanted bragging rights SO bad *grin*. But, alas, I am NOT the Biggest Loser. We weighed in this morning - and I was almost in TEARS when I realized that I hadn't won.

Now, I only have 5 pounds to go to be "wedding weight" - so I'm not quite finished yet. I have been receiving so many encouraging comments, though. SO great. They make me feel ... well ... pretty. And I haven't felt that way in a long time. So thank you - thank you - thank you for that ...

My husband was saying that he was a teeny bit sad that people haven't been commenting on him the way I've been getting feedback. In fact, everyone I've told are surprised that I didn't win - and more surprised that HE did. I told him that was because he still has another 20lbs to go. And I don't. So I LOOK like I'm "done" ... he doesn't. *evil grin*. So that made me feel better . How cruel of me, I know ...

Now what? Well - as I said - I still have a few more to go, so I will keep on keepin' on. I have a wedding that I'm in in September and a "10-year Anniversary Cruise" in October to be ready for. So - those things will keep me motivated.

But guess what?

My husband treated me to a SPECIAL gift ... a 2nd place prize, if you will. Ooooo - it's SO GOOD!!

Stay tuned to find out what it was ... is ... whatever *grin*.

Off to bed ... so so tired.
