Excited! (sort of money related)

December 9th, 2006 at 09:59 pm

My dad came up today to go with me to my company Christmas party. We had a lot of fun - plus I got to talk quite a bit with my best friend T (who's husband helped me get into this company.)

Before we left though, I had my dad take some new pictures of me - for my progress report. Smile The last time he took pictures of me was in August after I'd lost 10 lbs and been using Sparkpeople.com for over two months. I've now lost a total of 40 pounds since last Christmas, 35 lbs gone since May.

How does this relate to money? Well I came close to being put on meds for high cholesterol/blood pressure in May. In May I was also very close to having to go up another whole size in clothing.

Then in June I found Sparkpeople.com after I had been thinking of trying weight watchers online again (somethihing like $49 for the first three months.) Sparkpeople? FREE!

In November I went back for my six-month checkup. My cholesterol was in normal range and my blood pressure was in its normal low range again! So, no meds! I am getting to the point where I'm going to need to get some new clothes pretty soon - but - that's going DOWN a size! Smile

So, anyway I thought I'd share my progress picture with y'all. I plan on wearing the same exact outfit for every progress picture because I hate those so called before and after pictures where in one the person is frowning and looking really bad and then in the other they're smiling and have their hair and makeup etc all done up - of course they're going to look different! Oops, sorry, rant over. Smile

Here's my pic. Smile

--- um.. that's not my picture???? How'd I get Jen's logo? Jeffrey? Nate?

Hmmm... if you clik on Diva Tribe, it takes you to my picture. Weird.

    Congratulations! I know what you mean about the pictures, my gym does the same thing. It is cheating if you don't wear the same stuff. Smile
