Flab to Fab!

I am very excited to participate with the Flab to Fab Blogger Challenge.  Ok, so I'm not an 'official' contestant...I didn't even know about it until to today.  I am totally pulling for my girl Jia though.  Oh, you didn't know you were my girl?  Well, I'm not a stalker, I promise.  I just read quietly sometimes...  But yeah, she is an amazing person!  When I read that you can compete even if not for prizes, I am all in.  And I mean ALL in...ALL 220 pounds of me.  Ick, can not wait to lose that!

My Stats:
Height:  5'3"
Weight:  220 lbs
BMI:  39.0


This is me in January of 2004.  I think it is important for me to post pictures of what I looked like in the past so I know I can reach that goal again.

This is me in January 2010.  Wow, what a difference 6 years, 2 babies and a lack of self discipline can do.  Just so you know, it is really hard for me to post pictures of myself.  I hate the way I look, because in my mind's eye, I am that girl from 2004 fitting into my size 8 jeans, not tiny, but just right.  

Whew, I'd rather be behind the camera...  Well as anyone who has tried to diet knows, they suck!  Diets are hard.  Obviously I let myself eat what I shouldn't have, slacked off on exercising and made bad decisions.  I don't expect to be perfect in my quest to lose the weight.  So, I was thinking of having a day for anyone and everyone to vent about diets, food, your coworker who eats candy everyday and is a size 4, the pastries in the breakroom that you really really wanted.  What do yall think?  Do you wanna play along?  I'm thinking we have a "Diets Suck.  Complain here" day on Thursdays.  It is far enough that you have stuff to complain about from the week, plus you can see the weekend and fun nights with lots of food on the horizon.  Oh, and Thursdays are the day that our break room is piled high with Panera Bread pastries and cookies and bagels and muffins and ... I will eat them, lol!  Thanks for your input!  and I hope you join me and Flab to Fab in becoming healthy again!

Just Thinkin'


  1. I want to encourage you can do it!!! :)

    I lost 100 pounds not too long ago. If I can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!!! :)

  2. Sounds like fun! I'm always up for a good dietary gripe session! Good luck with Flab to Fab!

  3. I like you am not an official contestant, but I am following along and hope to be encouraged with everone else losing weight at the same time. I think if we all encourage each other, it will be a great help. I would be up for a vent day on my blog. Just pick the day and I will participate.

  4. YES! I am totally up for a "Diet Sucks" day! What a great idea. Losing weight is such a slow journey and somedays I just want to eat a dozen Krispy Kreme Donuts!

    I know it took a lot of courage to post a picture of where you are at today but just think of it as a starting point - it will only get better from here with your hard work! :)

  5. Good luck! You can do anything you put your mind too!

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday!

    Good luck! I think this challenge will be great for all of us :o)

  7. Thursdays is good for me - seeing as that will be the day I weigh at Slimming World LOL! Joining tomorrow. I so know your hate of cameras feeling. We can do this - and we can all support each other!

  8. Diets do suck...and I am always behind the camera too...because I don't know how to photoshop my fat out of the photos....

    I'm following you from Flab2Fab!

    Good Luck!
