Monthly Weight Loss with Pictures

Howdy, folks!

This month has been crazy! I have seriously been non-stop. Pretty much the whole first half of the month I only got to the gym a couple of times because I was working so much and then about the last week and a half I had to really push myself harder than usual at the gym because I hadn't lost anything.

My 5-lb weight-loss goal seemed impossible. I knew I was going to be posting today instead of the 30th because Brad, Oopsie and I are leaving for Ohio tomorrow morning to visit family for a week. So, that made it even harder because I never got a full month in. However, I am very happy to say that I weighed-in this morning at 179.8 which means I lost a total of 5.2 lbs this month for a total of 117.2 so far.

Yay! I'm in the 170s! Hard work and determation really pay off.

I probably won't blog again until I return from Ohio because I'll be so busy. In which time, I'll be 25! Yep, it's that time again. My birthday is on Friday. It's hard to believe that I'm going to be halfway through my 20s. Time really does fly by. I'm so thankful to God for every year He blesses me with!

Here are my pictures for this month ...

Oh, I also wanted to include my old and new drivers license pictures. My old one was taken on 2-12-2009 and my new one was taken Monday. I can't believe it's the same person! It's crazy what losing weight can do!

PS: I know my face still is still a bit chubby. I'm not at my goal yet. In time ... :)

Until next time,

Ice Skating and Droid

Brad and I went ice skating yesterday. It was his first time going and my second. My first time it took me about 30 minutes and I was flying around the rink. I thought this time it would take my a while to get the hang of it again but once I got out there it was only a matter of minutes until I was flying around again.

Brad, on the other hand, was a different story. LOL! He pretty much stayed to the railing the whole time. The first time he let go and stepped away from the railing he took a hard fall, legs flew open and everything. I about peed my pants. LOL! We were both cracking up! He bruised his wrist (which is feeling much better today) but he kept going, hanging onto the railing again. Well, he let go a couple of times, one time he made it one full lap around without falling and then shortly after when I wasn't looking, he fell again and said he was done after that because it killed his wrist when he fell.

I'm proud of him for trying. :) I wish I would have taken some pictures but I forgot!

In more news, I finally got a smartphone. Yay! I know, I'm really behind. After much research, I ordered the Droid Razr Maxx. It's supposed to arrive Tuesday. I already have a huge list of apps that I want to download. I know I'm going to be totally lost at first but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it in no time ... and have fun doing so!

What are your favorite apps? Maybe I'll give them a try.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
