December one year before and after photo

Well I lost 4oz as of this morning. I guess it's something. I don't know. I just feel like this could be more efficient and that I am missing something.

Anyway...last night we had our Christmas parade in town and I was asked to ride on the fire truck in the parade. Apparently since I did the haunted house for the VFD they consider me part of the family. It was alot of fun. We basically moved at snail's pace through the parade path and the whole town shows up to see the floats and stuff. All the children get so excited to see the fire trucks and the VFD flashes their lights and sounds the sirens and horns and they get soooo excited. It's neat to see their expressions and they just wave and wave at us. Here is a pic of my friend Jessica and me.  Her dad is the Assistant Chief of the VFD so he allows us get involved in the events.
I really like this picture. I found a picture of me from December of last year (2009) and wanted to show you the before and current for that.


Today is my friend Cayla's bday. So when we get off of work we are going to an Italian restaurant and then bowling. So that should be fun. I already looked at the menu online and have decided on the roast instead of pasta. Trying to keep with the program. I also baked vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles for her bday and didn't eat one AT ALL. Not even a bite. It wasn't so hard but I don't want to feel like I am completely depriving myself on a special occasion. So tonight at the restaurant I might eat a few bites of calamari and maybe a tiny bite of bread (probably not). MAYBE....

@Allan...I am drinking water. I pee like 15 times a day. But the scale isn't smiling as much as I want it too!!!
@Everyone who commented yesterday: Thanks for the advice. I feel better when I exercise anyway. I just hate that stupid gain from it at first. It is discouraging. I know I shouldn't weigh every day but it's become a habit and I feel like if I don't I might be going in the wrong direction and not know it for a week. Crazy huh?
Maybe I will try to ween myself off of it and start weighing on Mondays like I used to when I first got banded. We'll see.

Hope everyone has a super weekend. Until then.... Peace, love, and water peeps!


  1. That's a great picture of you! You hardly look like the same person and your skin looks more luminous too (might just be the camera?). You're doing great! Don't get discouraged. Sounds like you have a plan for italian food (my biggest weakness) and you're right about not depriving yourself. A couple yummy bites won't hurt.

  2. Awesome comparison

  3. You look great! What a big difference! Amazing!

  4. Yeah- you look amazing!!!!! So cute Jess.

    If you decide to only weigh on Mondays starting in the new year- let me know, I'll do it with you. I know it sounds stupid, but I'm totally addicted to weighing everyday too and just don't think I can stop until after the massive holiday season is over. I'm too anxious not knowing...hahaha I sound so pyscho. I know it's a small thing and I know I need to do it, but I'm hesistant- so if you do it in Jan, we can do it together.

    thank you for all the love on my page, btw. :) XO!


  5. Your face shrunk! You look great Jess!

  6. You are adorable at ANY size, but what a difference! Great job!


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
