Getting Skinny

So, we're going to get skinny now. We bought an elliptical yesterday. We bribed some friends with a truck to help us get it home. It only took 2 hours to put it together. We like it.

To motivate ourselves to actually stick with this once we get tired, bored, and discouraged, we are going to post our progress on our blog. So you all get to know exactly how much we weigh. We're not shy. We'll weigh in on Friday mornings and post our weights every week. Most of the time, we won't make a regular blog post--it will just be over on the right side of the blog. So you can ignore it if you don't care.

Here are some "before" pictures. We will wow you with the "after" pictures in April, right before we go to Hawaii. Don't forget to check back.

Hey, good idea about the before and after pictures. I think I'll do the same.

Way to go!! Good luck, I keep thinking I need to work out but it just hasn't happened yet.

Marie said...

Go you!

I know I SHOULD work out, yet somehow that is not transpiring into ACTUALLY working out. :)

That is a great idea. Posting it gives you accountability. I need to do something like that as well. The last time I lost a ton of weight I was having a competition with my dad. (I won).
I tried to start a competition with my husband....he gains and I lose, but that was never too successful.

It's so hard to get moving post-baby. I can't seem to get in a routine that includes exercise. It feels like it takes 6 months to get my life back and start making a dent on the get my body back plan.
