Half as Small as You Are: READY, GO

This is the first week of the club challenge put together by Casey at Half As Good As You and, as is always the case when starting a new diet, I am SO EXCITED!!!

I've taken my before shots of myself but will not subject you to these just yet. The pictures above of two plates of mashed potatoes give you a real accurate depiction of what my photos/body look like. But not in that yummy, I want to melt butter all over you and eat you up sort of way! More like, Thanksgiving Dinner is over, you've had two servings of everything and a piece of pumpkin pie and these dishes are what's leftover and no one wants...sort of way.

Starting point: 135 pounds. Now, I know it's just a number and everyone carries their weight differently. I have a friend who's one-inch taller and weighs 155 pounds, but she has the perfect body to me.

I have one positive thing about exercising more: you can always look a mess, but when you say, I'm working out and trying to lose weight, people forgive you for leaving the house looking like a wreck.

This empty nest Mom is on a roll, and this time around, it's not the dinner roll-type!

So now I'm hungry for a big bowl of carbs. I think I'm going to start using your "I'm exercising" excuse when people give me strange looks for being haggard. Now step away from the blog and go work out!

Fat babies are ADORABLE (love the photo)!!!! Will be blessed with 4 new grandbabies in 2009, so can't wait to squish some of their chubbies.

Go for health Beth & not weight alone (but, I'm sure you know that). Good luck!
