Here's the deal...

I have been a very bad blogger friend. I realize this. I apologize. Recently, I realized that since August, I have gained 20 lbs. Most of you don't know, but two years ago, I began my weight loss journey. I started eating right and exercising in May 2006, and by December, I had lost 55 lbs. Well, now, I found 20 of them and I am very upset by this. So I have decided to do something. I joined Weight Watchers and I am back at the gym 3+ days a week. Not the 5 days I was doing before, but life is much busier these days. So, wish me luck. I have 50+ lbs to lose!

Just for fun, I stole this from The FABULOUS Jenn at Enjoying the Ride.

1. How old will you be in 3 years? 35...ouch. 2. Do you think you'll be married by then? I would assume so, yes.
3. What do you look forward to most in the next 2 months? losing weight and fitting into my shorts from last year!
4. Who was the last person you called? Doug (our friend/Zac's co-worker)
5. Have you ever played a team sport? Softball, soccer and cheerleading in Jr. High/High School
6. Who was the last person to text you? Doug (It was American Idol night!)
7. Who was the last person you hugged? Kendall
8. What were you doing at midnight last night? Sleeping

11. What happened at 9:00 a.m. today? I lost my crystal ball, so I can't tell ya!
12. How many states have you visited? Geez, I'm supposed to COUNT and think at 6 am? I think not. Probably like 10 or so.
13. If you could be anywhere right now, where would it be? Disneyland with my family-I love that place.
14. Do you prefer shoes, socks, or bare feet? socks. Not a foot fan.
15. Are you a social person? Yes, I am, most of the time. Unless I am in a group where I don't know most people, then I am quiet. Not shy in the least, though.
16. What was the last thing you drank? water
17. Favorite ice cream? chocolate malted crunch from Rite Aid.

23. What do you drink in the morning? water or Chai tea.
24. Would you rather kiss someone with or without a tongue ring? I have never kissed anyone with a tongue ring, but I think it would be very interesting!
25. Do you sleep on a certain side of the bed? Yes, I do.

34. Have you ever been in an ambulance? no
35. Do you prefer the ocean or a pool? Pool, the ocean scares me.

38. What is your favorite thing to spend money on? kids clothes.
39. Do you wear any jewelry 24/7? My wedding set.

Love the answers! We have a few answers in common, too.

I started WW 3 weeks ago, and have lost 6.2 pounds so far. Not bad, if I do say so myself.

Good luck!

Lots of blogging guilt going around, but sometimes real life just has to be the priority! Good luck on your weight loss journey! Sounds like you know how already!

I also lost on WW before, 30 pounds... but now I have gained half of that back. I re-committed myself at the beginning of this month (although, going to the gym would help greatly). I've lost only 2 lbs so far, but I'm going to keep working at it. Oh and I'm going to borrow the meme on this page :) I will give credit to you and Jenn!

GRRRR i have typed a reply to you 3 times and blogger is being poopy!!

i want to say i hear ya on the weight loss thing i am there too. i gained 40 lbs when i moved here almost 2 yrs ago. i am just now getting totally serious about losing it! i am back in the gym 3 days a week and walking 2 days a week. i love WW, but in this town...well...ummm, not gonna go to the mtgs. ick!!

ANYWAY...blogging should take a back seat to real life. i need to follow that advice myself. i have been feeling a little addicted to it. it just feels soooooo good to be in contact with real people. i swear i feel like i live on an island and the cows.
