a new me??

well, yesterday I made a new commitment to myself...I really want to be HEALTHY-I want to lose this weight so bad...I really want to lose 100 pounds in the next year, so according to my calculations, that would be 8.33 pounds a month or 2.08 pounds a right? I certainly hope so. I have a WEDDING in 10 months!! One of my best friends Tiffany and I are doing a 12 week challenge with her sister and a few other friends-and there is not only weight loss on the line, but $$ too!! Cant beat that, I am motivated by money!

I have always been the "token" fat girl...always-and I think I have just become accustom to that, but why? why should I be? Why cant I be the beautiful, confident girl? I dont see why not!! we go! This blog may take a turn to journey my weight loss goals (still wedding stuff though) sit down, strap on your seat belts and hold on for one hell of a ride!

2nd place-not too shabby

I qualified for this contest called "Lucky in Love" that our local radio station was giving away. There were 30 people who qualified. They were giving away a free wedding at Three Rivers Casino, paying for everything!! I thought sweet, I would love a free wedding...So yesterday me and my friend Marsia headed over to the coast to go to the casino, you had to be present to win. It was so exciting, everyone had a raffle ticket-they called 7 semi finalist up stage, and my # was the last one to be called, my heart was beating so fast! They had us all pick a seat on stage (I didnt get to choose since I was the last one to be called) and had us all open envelopes at the same time...I got runner up-bummer :( but the girl that won had been with her boyfriend for 12 years, so I definatly think she deserved to win. Im also kinda glad I didnt win, cause then I couldnt really do things the way I wanted to...and the photographer wasnt very well at all-it was all kinda, who wants their wedding dress to smell like a smokey casino anyway, right? :)

so sweet!

Just wanted to put up a sweet picture of my sweet niece Peyton...or as I call her in this picture, Cookie Monster!
So...I get back from lunch today and have someone waiting here for me-its one of my favorite clients son's...she followed me over from John's office after he passed away and is such a sweetie...I open up the card and it says "thank you so much for always taking such good care of our family and caring so much about us, and congratulations on this new chapter in your life". I thought that was so sweet...well, then I see a gift card in there-to Bed, Bath and Beyond for $100!!! Oh my gosh, that was so sweet, I just dont feel like I deserve it-but I am so grateful for it. It was such a sweet gesture from a wonderful client. I love my clients!
