I hate to ruin my pattern of good pictures with a picture of me…trust me, I really didn’t want to post a picture of myself, but we are starting a fitness challenge at work. Today was the day that we weighed in so I thought I would put a picture up of me today, at the beginning of the challenge. Since I know other people are looking at this, hopefully it will give me motivation to actually lose weight so that I will look noticeably better in the picture I will post at the end of the fitness challenge. At least that is my plan. I have 8 weeks until our vacation and I think we weigh out around that time, too. My ultimate goal is to lose 30 pounds from where I am at now, but that will take longer than 8 weeks. I just need to start losing weight instead of gaining it!
