I had a great weekend this weekend. Two of my friends ( Hi Emily and Molly) came over to stamps and make Christmas cards (since Im way behind.
This stamp is from In style Stamps ( I won her in a card contest) . I lovvvveee her. She is so fun for winter cards and for paper piecing. I found these sweater looking cards in a dollar bin at Mikes. Since they were so cheap I used one to cut up for her hat and pants ( I know, I know, who wears knitted pants?!?) but I love the way she turned out! The giant snowflake is actually a fleaur de lis die I got from the amazing Marie ( hi love!)

I was talking to my awesome friend Emily last night and she threw me a challenge!! I never back down from a stampin challenge ( well ok there is a few that I didnt want to attempt) so I got right to work. The challenge was to use bright neon colors or to make your own animal print. Now I may be creative as far as stamping but I can not draw to save my life so I went with the bright colors! Emily ( hi love!) gave me this Bella image awhile ago so I wanted to use it ( because I have about 50 bella's stamped out that shes givin me ). Wanna do this challenge? We would love to see it!
P.S Go check out Emilys blog! She rocks!

I'm not so inspiring today :( I gained two pounds. My cousin Jammie and I were talking the other day and I told her I was practically naked so she sent me clothes in the mail (isnt that sweet???) and I was modeling them for her . This shirt doesnt fit yet so its the perfect picture for on here. I like how it says GIANT above supergirl because thats how I feel . I think I will start taking my picture each week in this shirt so you can see if it gets looser or tighter, hopefully looser. I think I need to set goals for myself each week like "next week I will try to be down to 215" . We shall see how that goes. Did you notice my lil girl running on the side of my blog? Shes a weight tracker and shes getting damn tired of running back in forth instead of just to the finish line!!sent from my BlackBerry® smartphone

I was really dreading weigh in today. I didnt excercise nearly as much as I should have and I skipped meals ( which is super bad for you) . In fact I think the only good thing I did this week was drinks lots of water!!! Lots and lots! Even during work ( and if you have tasted the water from my work you would understand why this is not an easy task). So when my alarm rang this morning my first thought was NO!!! I'll just tell the blogging world that I forgot to weigh. Yeah thats it...I'll skip a week..They wont notice. Then when I got out of bed I thought of the reason why im doing this on here in the first place . To inspire people. To learn myself. Im going to have ups and downs before its over I mean im only 4 weeks in. So I waddled over ( hey I can say that if its about me!) and tapped the scale with my toe (hopeing that it was dead since it runs on batteries) and the lines flashed across screen (ive never hated Energizer batteries more then that moment) . The scale flashed to zero which means its prepared itself for the abuse im about to put on it . I stepped on and looked down . It displayed 219 on the screen (never have I loved engergizer batteries more) . 219!!! But how? Why? The only thing I can think of is its all the water Ive been drinking and maybe its starting to flush my fat out. On that thought I got off scale ran downstairs and drank another big glass....
P.S This pic was taken of Tony and I at a friends house when we were playing Jenga . I love this pic because you can see how happy we are . You can also see all my chins. hahah

I've decided to add something new to my blog on Thursdays. It will be called Thinspiration Thursday . This picture sadly is of me. Im smiling but really im not happy ( how could I be with those arms?!?)
So I have decided to start working on my weight and posting it on here ( wouldnt you lose weight if 155 people where reading your weight?) Am I going on a fad diet? NO! Ive decided the only way I can do this is if I make lifestyle changes and better choices. I will eat what I want but only the recommended portion.
Its also time to excercise. My dad got me the Biggest Loser workout video for valentines day ( because I wanted it) and how many times has it been used? Once ( and that was by Tony). So Each week I will post my weight and a pic ( no matter how unflattering it may be). Ill also write about any thing Ive come across on my journey. Wish Me luck!
Why I want to lose weight:
1) So I can make it to see my step kids grow older and have families.
2) I have migraines ( bad ones) and Im starting to wonder if they are weight/ diet related
3) Im going to be 30 (gulp) in December and im always saying "someday when im thin" ( I know alot of you have probably said that too) but whens someday? Im thinking it should be now!!
4) I wanna look good in a tank top
5) Because I want to spend my life with my fiance and at this rate Ill probably have a massive heart attack by 40.
And the scary:
Todays Weight : 226
