Friday Funday

Quick post today, as Brigid is waking up from her nap, but I wanted to get this out there...

At the start of the year, I joined the blogging biggest loser challenge hosted by Jennie, who I have loved reading from the first moment I clicked on her blog. She is honest and sweet and owns the same kind of dog that I do, which means nothing in the long run, but I always thought it was cool.

Anyway, I know that I'm not exceptionally overweight. I know that I will never be a size 0, and really, I don't want to be. I want to be healthy, I want to get rid of the extra padding that I've had my whole life, but that has expanded exponentially since I had Brigid.

I want to eat more fruit and less chocolate. I want to exercise more. I want to take the stairs instead of the elevator. And I have been.

Today, I tried on a pair of shorts that were just this side of too tight on me last summer. Now? They're about a size too big. I jumped up and down, posted it on twitter, and threw myself a little awesome party. And then I spent the rest of Brigid's naptime trying on every pair of "skinny" pants I owned.

And they all fit.

  4. That is such amazing news, Tara! I'm so happy that you've reached your goal. I know a lot of people (including myself) start out with a weight loss/gain in mind, but always end up finding excuses along the way why we couldn't keep it up. So seriously, kudos to you!!

  5. YEA!!! Congrats on the loss!!! :) That's really awesome. Love the black polka-dot cardigan. Too cute! :)

  6. Way to go!!! That is always an amazing feeling when your skinny pants fit!
