Before - July 31, 2008 -- After - October 16, 2008
During the 12 weeks of the competition, I lost a total of 22.8 pounds & 30 1/2 inches! And 6 1/2 of those inches was in my waist! To date, I've lost 43 pounds since I started this journey on April 25th of this year.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Mine will be very busy as I work Friday & Saturday & then Sunday, we have to get Cas prepared for her trip to Traverse City on Monday. She'll be spending Halloween up there with her friends while Jim & I will hopefully be going to PA next weekend to visit my family.
Till next time,

I think they did an excellent job taking pics for me :) Here are the rest:

Just some leaves in our yard. Jim just cut & bagged the grass & leaves on Sunday, but you can't tell it now!
Saturday, we went to Birch Run & then we stopped at Chili's for dinner. As I was getting out of the booth, I ended up straining the top of my right foot :( Luckily, it's better already, but it did put a damper on my work-outs over the weekend. So I decided to skip bowling last night & went to the gym instead. We bowl this afternoon, then we'll be going to the gym again & then on Thursday, we have our final weigh-in & measurements for our Biggest Loser competition. Jim was in 8th place before last week's weigh-in, but I'm sure he moved up after losing over 5 lbs. last week. I'd love to see him win, but there's another guy that is also doing really good, so we'll see.
Have a great Wednesday,

I thought it was kinda neat that when I started my blog post today, it was at exactly 10:10 a.m. on 10-10-08. Just a little something I noticed, which made me come up with today's blog title.
Back in August, I purchased these capris in a size 18. Two months later, this is how they now fit me:
The past couple of weeks, I've been wearing jeans instead of capris because it's been kinda chilly. But yesterday, it was 70 degrees out, so I decided to wear capris & couldn't believe how loose they've become in just 2 months! Size 16, here I come! As of today's weigh-in, I'm officially down 41.2 lbs. :) I didn't work out as much as I would have liked this past week, but I did meet with a trainer yesterday & she taught me a lot of new stuff that I didn't even know my body could do :) And surprisingly, I'm not sore at all this morning! She even had me doing lunges the correct way, something that I've been struggling with.

Today while we were having a humidifier installed on our furnace, the dogs were outside so they wouldn't jump all over the person installing it, so I decided it was time to take some new pictures of them. Reeses, above, is my teddy bear. Well, he doesn't really look like a teddy bear anymore, but he sure did when he was a puppy! Don't you just love his 'eyebrows'?
Onyx loves 'sunbathing'. She would stay out on the deck all day long if I let her. Yes, I know, her head is too small for her body, lol. She was the runt of the litter & her head just never grew enough to match her body. And look at all that gray hair on her face! Yep, even dogs hair turns gray. Afterall, she is 63 years old :)
Lastly, here is a layout I did a few weeks ago (click on picture to enlarge). It's not my favorite layout, but it's done! I just really don't like how I did the journaling. I did the words Party! Party! in the title since that's what was on her hat, but it just didn't turn out like I had imagined it.
Got another busy week ahead of me.....work & bowling tomorrow, bowling & working out on Wednesday, working out on Thursday plus I have a session booked with a trainer that day, then work again on Friday & Saturday. I'm really liking my job :) It can be a little slow at times, but it's also a lot of fun. And the discounts aren't too shabby, either :)

Just like I thought.....Summer ended in a flash & Fall is now officially here. Right now, it's only 49 degrees out & windy. I think it's time to donate the shorts & capris because by next year, I will NOT be in those sizes again!
I bowled really good last night for 2 out of the 3 games :) My games were 187, 217 & 125 for a 529 series! I also won the 50/50 drawing for our league & the High Handicap Game jackpot for my second game :) Jim just joined the men's league at the other end of the house last night since a team had a vacancy & he ended up bowling a 654 series! We bowl again this afternoon & afterwards, we'll be heading to the gym.
Off to do some shredding :) Have a wonderful Wednesday!
