Another Chance to Get it Right!

In 2010, I guarantee I'M BRINGING SEXY BACK! I failed to deliver (to myself) on my SEXY BACK promise in 2009. Rest assured my fellow bloggers...GAME ON!

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for making my first year of blogging inspirational, motivational, and exciting:

My New Blog Buddies: Thanks for allowing my blog the opportunity to entertain and motivate you as we both struggle through our weight loss endeavor. Many times last year I wanted to surrender to the food devil and just give up, but your blogs encouraged me to persevere.

Me So Hongry First-Timers:WELCOME! Sit back, strap
on your seat belt and get ready for a roller coaster ride. Experience my ups and downs with me and I hope you plan to return time and time again.

My Supportive Lurkers:You know who you are. Those of you I inspired to venture to Goodwill or try new food products, show me some love wh
en stopping by my blog.

Well without further adieu I present my 2009 weight loss adventure in pictures:

  13. Keep it up Girl. You are doing great. You are an inspiration.

  14. Hi! Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest. You commented above me, and as the rules say...I came on over to check you out! And boy! How proud you must be! What a wonderful job you've done so far. You look amazing. Keep truckin'. I'm a WW lifetime member, although thanks to an affair over the holiday break with some leftover red velvet cake, I am not over my lifetime weight. Back to journaling and really is a lifetime thing. Congrats for your commitment. The pics are worth a 1000 words! (P.S. I wore the same Halloween costume 2 years ago!)

  15. Dropping by from SITS. You really look fabulous. So glad you showed the 2008-2009 progress pictures! You have truly come a long way. You have a beautiful face and from my quick stop by I can already tell that you are a beautiful person. I congratulate you on your success so far, and I am sure with your motiviation and the support of your family and friends you will keep on the road to your goals! Go Girl!! :)

  17. I LOVE your sense of humor! I am a fluffy girl who needs to lose some weight this year...and I feel like you need to laugh...or you will cry!
    Good luck, you look great!

  18. Hi from SITS! Congratulations, and good luck! I'm a fellow 'repeat offender' and look forward to reading more about your journey.

  19. Good for you!!! You're working super hard, I can tell, it certainly shows. I'm on the fluffy side myself, and have spent the last six months with a personal trainer to kick my butt into shape, and it's working, just slowly. I've lost about 2 or 3 dress sizes, but only about 6 pounds - my trainer keeps telling me that muscle weighs more than fat and that's why the scale isn't budging, so I'm trying to stay motivated, but some days it's hard. Happy belated new year to you!

  20. You are doing great! Congrats on the weight loss!

  21. Unbelievable year in pictures! They are great:)
    I just have to say that the 3-generation picture was my have such beautiful women in your family.
    Wishing you the best year...May all your goals be reached!!

  22. You are AWESOM! (which you already know)

    I'm coming over from SITS and I have to say that I love a blogger that knows how to spell y'all! LOL I'm following too. I started my weightloss efforts (again) in 2010 and my motto is Fit B4 40. I have a year and almost nine months to make it.

  23. Wow! Kudos to you. You are definitely an encouragement - keep up the great work!

    Happy SITS Day!

  24. I have been on the weight watchers roller coaster a few times, but you look great. Keep up the awesome work.

    I have started to eat healthier and trying to exercise this year. I think I weigh more now than I did when I was pregnant.


  25. wow, you kicked serious butt this year! My best friend is doing somethign similar, and she just called to tell me she's in pants that she hasn't been able to wear in 8 years!!! HUGE acheivement, and like you, she lost somewhere around 40 lbs this year.

    WAY TO GO!!!

  26. You look stunning! Weight loss has always been a struggle for me, and this is my year too. Good luck! :)
