In fact, the Biggest Loser! That's right folks, I ended up winning the biggest loser contest we had with friends out here. I ended up losing 16.58% of my starting weight. I can't help but feel pretty awesome about it. What really matters, though, is the state of my health. I feel like I am in a much healthier place than I have been in a long time. I'm stronger now- much more fit. I think I'm healthier than when I was this weight in the past. This is what's really important. Healthy habits and attitudes are what I want to pass onto my girls. From here on, I plan on continuing my healthier habits, but not obsessing so much over my numbers. Anyway, here's what I look like today. I had been rubbing my eyes a bit due to the awesome state of allergy itchiness I find my self in nearly constantly.
I'm reluctant to find a "before" picture, but know that I got some jeans just after Christmas that I can't wear now. When I bought them, I had to suck in a little bit to do them up. Now, I really can't wear them. they are simply too big.
Well, it's been a over a week since I've posted any pictures of my cuties. Here are some of the latest.
Cute, even when the top of her head is cut off. We got her six month portraits taken recently, and there was a mix up as to when. We had some time to kill and there were some killer after Easter sales. I ended up getting each girl a pretty outfit. The above is Alice in her new duds...
Alice loves to play outside, though it' s already starting to get super hot. We need to play in the water a lot this summer.
I don't remember what she's looking at, but I love her expression.
Alice Marie is such a sweet girl! She loves bathtime, but usually not after. She doesn't like the lotion. this was probably pre-lotion. Super cute.
Even sweet with fingers in her mouth. Check out miss Sally's eyelashes- they are SO long and SO curly! She didn't get that from me, though I wish she did.
I'll leave you with a couple of funny and cute sleep pictures.You can't really tell, but Alice's leg is much higher than the rest of her body. It was propped up against the side of her crib.
