Weigh In Wednesday!

Happy Day to all who wander here! Today is not only WIW but it also happens to be my amazing sister's birthday! For those of you who don't know my sister Tracey and I are like two peas in a very strange pod. She is the bread to my butter substitute. The lean to my green. The coffee to my shake. I can honestly say that I don't know two sisters who are more in sync then we are. We are the annoying people with a million (I mean that figure quite literally) inside jokes. We speak our own language of strange quotes (often just created out of tangents that we go on that would be hard to explain to others). My earliest memory is of being in awe of her, sitting on my bedroom floor with her in her baby seat(not sure what else to call throne?) and kissing her forehead ( I know aren't you just melting at that image).  I know that I wouldn't be the person I am today without her.

As you all know one of my big goals is to be on the Amazing Race and she will be my partner in crime. I couldn't imagine doing it with anyone else. As of late I have had a hard time focusing on said goal because I feel so good and look fantastic (Good Morning Ego!). In an effort to kick start that drive in me I am going to share a picture with you. This was taken at Tracey's birthday celebration last year.

                                                      A year ago today I looked like this.
And now, thanks to her support, your support and my own drive I look like this .......
Same great smile but a heck of a lot easier to see! Oh and that handsome man by my side is another amazing person in my life, my boyfriend Brian (yeah I bagged me a great guy).
Seeing that is pretty damn motivating I must say! I have come so far and while I still have a way to go I know I can get there. One baby step at a time. Speaking of which, I am down 2 pounds this week. Any loss is a good loss!


  1. GREAT job on your 2 lbs!!! GO YOU!!!!! I often look at it this way: 2 lbs each week = 104 lbs a year. That's a BEAUTIFUL thing to realize. You're doing well!

    And Happy Birthday to your sis! :)

  2. I am a little misty eyed after reading this - You and Tray have what every woman wishes she can have in a sister.

  3. Lynne you look AMAZING!!! So excited to see you in 3 weeks!!

  4. Thank you ladies!!
    Tara- I am excited to see you too! It's going to be a great night!

    Sara- *hugs* your too cute

    Chubby- I love that!! I am going to keep that in mind every time I get upset at a small loss!

  5. Wow I just found your blog this morning and I must say you are an inspiration to me. Way to go on the 2 lbs this week and a big congrats on your loss in the last yr. Pictures are worth a thousand words and you look great. Looking forward to future post, and thank you for sharing your story. :)
