Monthly Weight Loss and Pictures

Hey, everyone!
This is going to be really short because I'm tired and want to kick back with my family for the night. :)
This morning I weighed-in at 166.8 for a total of 4 lbs lost this month and 130.2 lbs lost so far.
Here are my pictures for the month:
Note: Not that anyone probably cares, but I do -- my hair looks a mess and I have hardly any makeup on because this is before I went to work this morning (I don't dress up to babysit). :-P

Much love,

PS: I won't be posting a weight-loss blog at the end of next month because I'll be at Disney World *big cheesy smile*. I'll post a blog about the plans for that trip sometime before I leave.

NFC Update #2

Hey, everyone!
I'll make this short and sweet ....
I got another email today from the marketing director at NFC telling me that I am one of the three winners! They are holding a small awards ceremony for the three of us on November 1st to announce what place we're each in and give us our prizes. The winner gets $500 cash, as I wrote before, but they changed second place to $300 worth of prizes and third place to $200 worth of prizes. I'll post a blog on the 1st and let you all know what happened! :)
Until next time,

NFC Update

Howdy! :)
I got an email a couple of days ago from the marketing director at NFC telling me that they are running a direct mail piece and want to include my 'before' and current 'after' photo in it. They told me they would mail me a copy when it goes to print (and, of course, I will share it with you all).
I'm honored to be featured. I never in my life thought I'd be featured in anything for weight-loss. I asked about the contest because I hadn't heard anything since the video shoot and he said that they will be announcing the winners at the end of the month. So, I'll let you guys know when I know.
I hope you're all having a great weekend!
Fall blessings,

Hey, everyone!
I just wanted to update everyone on my jeans situation.
I'm not jeanless anymore. Yay! I got them just in time, too. The weather has been getting pretty cold on some days. I found a couple pairs of jeans on the 6th. I've just been a bad blogger and haven't written about them yet. My good friend, Corena, read my semi-rant about not being able to find jeans and called me up and said, "We're going to find you some jeans."
So, after trying on about 60 more pairs of jeans, I finally found some. Yes, they still do that thing I wrote about but not nearly as bad. I'll take a picture in one of the pairs I got for my monthly weight-loss blog.
I found a pair at American Eagle and in JCPenney juniors department. Corena told me to always look for jeans in the juniors department. Their stuff is much cuter and I think that they fit better than most ladies jeans (on me at least).

Thanks to everyone who wrote me about that post. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who has problems finding jeans.
I hope you have a great week!
