Sabotage...

So if you read the Grenz, (and you should) you know that Robb and I are engaged in what Mattie has called "The Fatness/Skinniness Contest." For those of you who are rolling your eyes, all, "You don't need to lose weight" at me, please let me assure you that the only pants that are really comfortable for me right now involve stretchy material, preferably fleece.

So yeah, we're having the contest...whoever has lost most lbs by percentage by the end of August gets either a new digital camera (me) or an Ipod (Bobb). So far, I am winning: I am minus 8 ugly pounds of chub. I am not about to divulge my secrets for success, but I will say that I may have been a little too cruel by providing this as Robb's Father's Day meal:

Ribs
Cornbread casserole
green beans with bacon
BBQ beans
(since blue laws still exist in Arkansas and I didn't think of beer yesterday) sweet iced tea

and just to make sure I've got the contest sewn up...

cherry-cheese-amoretto-fudge brownies.

oh yeah. I'm so getting a new camera in August.

just because your pants aren't comfortable doesn't mean your fat...

none the less though..I'm glad you're winning :)

"Come on New CAMERA!!!!)

Sweet! I'm all about weight loss contests. I'm on a month long push to loose 10-15 so keep us posted...its great encouragement!

Enjoy that new camera ; )

Sara, well, since my pants USED to be comfortable...maybe I've added a few extra pounds...

oh yeah, I succumbed to the brownies myself...and took a power-walk with my 5 lbs weights to pay for it...

Really, Heidi...another 10??? You look great...I keep wanting to try the yoga link you posted, but I can't seem to find a time when the kids won't ask..."WHAT are you doing?"

Heidi said...

Ha! Know what you mean about the kids. Josh has been getting up at the crack of dawn lately so I haven't been able to do much yoga either. Just can't seem to pry myself out of bed that early.

As for the other 10#, I have plenty of places that could give up some fat. I would really like to get back into the single digits for clothes. I'm ok with not getting back to my original size/weight...I have 3 kids to show for a few extra inches = )

I remember waking up and going out to the living room to see my mom exercising in her bath robe with cans of beans for weights...we still pick on her about it...why is it that it's so easy to feel weird exercising with other people watching?

Heidi said...
