The 18's have arrived!

Muffin Top

(Original post can be found here at Lorie's Blog)

First of all I apologize for being gone so long. I have been busy but it has been all good. I have lots of good news to share!! I will start with this post and do a follow up post after weigh in tonight.

I have been following this blog for a while. It's really interesting. They pass pants around with the idea of the recipient shrinking right out of the pants. I entered when I saw a post that this girl was ready to pass on her size 18's. I have been wearing pants that require a belt for a while now. I also have been hanging around in the same weight range. I needed a new motivation so I entered. I WON THE PANTS!! The came in the mail Monday and I finally put them on today. I was so excited! They are a little snug but I know I will be out of them soon.

I tried to take pictures myself but I just couldn't do it. I made my son take these this morning. He was not to excited about it and acted like I was a weirdo. The picture quality is not that great but again, he's only 12 and he doesn't care. As you can see, I had to stand in front of the TV to get his attention. I am a little self conscious about these pictures but I think it is an important step to reaching my inner skinny and getting back on track again. So here is my muffin top.....don't laugh!! I like to describe my shape as a cylinder with arms and legs. It's very difficult to find pants that fit right. LOL

So stay tuned and I will tell you later about my progress (yes there has been progress!), school, work, and big changes coming up. I also was given an award!! See you later!!

The 18's are moving on!

 Here's a great post from Micah about sending on her 18 jeans! :)

It is time to say good bye to a good friend. One that has supported me over the last few months. The one that got the WHOLE weight loss thing started for me. Yes, it is time for my beloved size 18's to move on to the next Fatty-Bo- Batty. I did take some parting pictures, with the help of my little assistant.

(Meredith took some extra pictures, and I just love her little boots, so I had to share!)

And now, as we say good bye, I am happy to say that I have lost 28 pounds! So, I am not too sad to see the jeans go. But, I think that is fitting to give them a nice send off. So, I decided to put together a little summary of my time with the jeans. So, Good Bye Jeans! And Good Luck Lori! I hope you have as much fun with them as I did!
