Let's Make a DEAL!!

Alright, so my best friend since 7th grade (Jordan Bleak) is getting married Oct. 2nd and I'm super happy for her and can't wait to be at/in the wedding. But I have one problem, there is no way that I am going to the wedding and being the Maid of Honor as a size 13.

Some people would never announce or even talk about what their close weight is. Yeah, I'm a little uncomfortable but oh well. I'm comfortable enough to say that I'm a bit on the big, jiggly side of life. NO offense to anyone who doesn't like talking about weight. But I want to lose this weight so I'm going to be open about it all. So, I decided I'm going to start a diet and lose weight.

After I told my mom and Kurt about my plan and they were excited and willing to help my through the process of weight loss, Kurt came up with a deal. He told me that if I lose 20 lbs by September 17th he will pay for part of my truck payment of the month. AND if I lose 30 lbs. by Jordan's BIG day (Oct. 2nd) he will also pay for my truck payment of the month of October. . . Can you say MOTIVATION!?!
So starting tomorrow (16 July 2010) I have a total of 30 to 40 lbs to lose in 79 days. Think I can do it? I can! So, I guess we'll just have to see. And don't worry I'll keep y'all updated on my progress and interesting stories to tell ya. (Hopefully) OH!! If you hve any helpful hints or suggestions I would love to hear them.

What helps me is to run a race of some sort...that's what gets me to actually exercise. Do you want to run a race...I'm sure Cash will run with you - and heck maybe I will also!!!! ;) :) ;) Good luck on your goal, how great to get your truck payment made for two months! That would motivate me!
