SO IMPRESSED!
When do we see the skinny you????

Kristin said...

A lot of miles, little points, a lot of willpower, little fun food, a lot of reps and steps, a lot of smiles in the mirror now and a lot of faith and tenacity. I am so very proud of you girly. I hope you know that! You look wonderful by the way, Miss Skinny. I hope you are so very proud of you too. You are on the home stretch and I will keep on cheering!

Rachel said...

Congratulations on your awesome numbers! Lovin' the 3 & 25 in particular!

Made me think of some numbers:
0 The number of #'s I've lost.
10 The number I could possibly consider achieving.
25 The number I'd have to loose to get back the weight I was when we got married 27 years ago.

Hum, seems I've gained approx. one pound per year of marriage. Guess I know what I'll look like when we celebrate our 50th.

Sorry. Just thinking outloud. I enjoyed your music today. I didn't read who was on your play-list, but as I humed, I was like "I know that voice...whose voice is that?" Then I looked and I said, "Duh. Brooke." Loved hearing her song again! Of course I loved David Cook, too!!!!!!!
