10 Pound Weight Loss Challenge

Here I am again.. facing pool time and a trip to the beach without having lost that 10 pounds I swore I would lose by summer time this year... It's a promise I make to myself every year and fail to follow through on.

I've decided as of 4th of July weekend I'm going to lose 10 pounds before we go to the beach in about a month. I do not plan to use gimmicky diets, starve myself, or cut off my arm. I'm going to lose 10 pounds by watching what I eat and exercising like a maniac.

Since my last weight loss challenge at the end of last year, I've slowly put on the few pounds that I had lost. I think I was somewhere around 141 at the lowest of that challenge. Now I'm sitting at 148.5.....again.

I don't like sharing this information with the world but I figure I need the accountability. So here we go.. I don't plan to make regular updates I just plan to lose 10 pounds before August 1.. I'll update at some point, and if I don't, just assume that I failed to keep my promise yet again and maybe don't rub it in my face?

For me, it's not just 10 pounds that I need to lose. It's the saddlebags and flubber of being far to sedentary for far too long. Seriously, I have the body of an old woman! Flab everywhere! Feel good about the fact that you only want to lose weight....it would take extensive plastic surgery for me to be beach ready. :)

Good luck. :)

My weight-loss plan for the summer consisted solely of jaw surgery, but I think my all-pudding diet might not be as slimming as I had hoped. Damn. Hope your plan goes well (but you look great anyway, so give yourself a break!).
