Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels.

Ok, ladies and germs. It's time to become accountable. I hereby declare today, Wednesday, June 10, 2009, the beginning of Project Wedding, or PW as it shall be known as henceforth.

Yesterday at lunch, Kelli asked me to be the Matron of Honor at her wedding. As if there was anyone else that could do the job! I obviously said "yes!" and will be so honored to stand by her side on the day she and David become one. I love weddings. Total. Sap.

How-EV-er, I will not do so as a big, fat piggy. I will be hot and sultry and delicious...I will be the bridesmaid that all the groomsmen want to get drunk and hit on. Okokok, so this is totally not that kind of wedding, nor is it that kind of wedding party, but you get my point.

The week after Alex was born I jumped on the bandwagon and bought the Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred. I've been shredding for 4 days now and can strangely already see a difference...if nothing else, in my endurance and ability to walk straight at the end of the 20, excruciating minutes. Once my incision is totally healed, I will begin to run at least 30 minutes a day...ugh.

And so it begins! Wednesdays will move from being Hump Day, Bump Day to being my official "weigh in" days and I will broadcast the numbers TO THE ENTIRE INTERNETS to keep me accountable. Weigh-in Wednesdays, if you will. How apropos.

Don't get all excited, I will not be divulging my starting weight. Just the poundage lost per week. No one needs to know those numbers.

If there's anyone out there that wants to join me, feel free. You can publish your progress on Wednesdays in the comments section.

PW, you are my bitch.

KVW, out.

Katy said...

I am totally in, this is all part of my Year of Katy!! I definitely need something to keep me accountable!

I'm gonna think about it for a couple days, but I'm pretty sure I'll be joining you. My little sister's wedding is in September and since I wouldn't let the bridal shop lady order me the next size up I have to do something about it!!!

(omg, my little sister is getting married!!)

I'm in.. I'm matron of honor in my best friends wedding next March 2010 and while I didn't just have a baby.. I have a new husband (of 9 months) who eats everything in sight... so I am in! Hopefully this will help me be accountable.

Good luck! I wish I had had your motivation when I was asked to be matron of honor in my best friend's wedding. Now the wedding is three weeks away, and I'm like, "Hmm... maybe I could have dieted a little?" Oh well, it will be fun either way!
