.9 AWAY!

OK - I am back - YES - AGAIN!

I have just found out that I am offiically .9 away from 200 - YAHOOO!!!! That is 10 pounds - GONE!!! Rach said that I was looking "slim" but I didn't believe her! BUT I guess she was RIGHT!

SOOOO FRIGGIN CLOSE to 200 - I just need to get under it - that will make me work soooo hard!

I have been so sick - so that is my excuse - really - not the greatest way to lose weight but let's not lose the distance we have covered!
With that said - 10 gone - 40 more to go - FOCUS! It has to be this week! I am going to be working soooo much - YES at the 'gym' but no real gym to work out in??!! SUCKS EH?

But that is OK - my troops will get me a pass to the 'competitor' and we will work out - that is the goal - HOT AND SEXY for JULY!!! Then even more for October! ;o)

K - just had to tell someone - and I know someone will be out there .... RIGHT??!!!

Luv MEL :o)

UPDATE - Sunday, January 10th, 2010!

Ok Fans! I am BACK!!!!

I thought starting this blog - January 1st - would help me with staying on track - LOL!!!! We love to input things in our heads! BUT with good news I would like to report that I am down 8 pounds - slow and steady - no crazy diets or funky routines - just watching what I am eating! Drinking lots of water and working on it EVERY DAY!

The best is that two of my associates at work decided to start a 10 pound challenge - YAHOOOO!!! I love a game/competition - BRING IT! First one down 10 pounds - WINS!!! Wins - WHAT? HMMMM - there is no materialistic thing - YET - but really what do we win?

More Energy! Down one size! Feeling good about yourself! Stronger! Happier! Really do we need a 'materialistic thing' - uhmmmm YES! Welcome to our world!

So with that said - GAME ON - had to use it Rach! I am sitting at 202 - GROSS - so 10 pounds will be AMAZING!!! AND Biggest Loser has started again - YAHOOOO - tears and Jillian - really who could ask for more! (Keep moving - till you puke or die - and if you puke - get back up and MOVE! - LOVE IT!) Ok - back to me - I was in Jillian mode there - I have no room to be her - NOT YET!

We are here - it`s 2010 - a NEW DECADE - a NEW YEAR and really a NEW LIFE! You are the only one that control your actions - hear that Melissa - ONLY YOU! :o)

Off to get the Wii FIT out - even 10 minutes will HELP!!!

Over and Out!

Mel :o)

PS - I am now a maid of honor in October - GOOD GRIEF - another reason to move my A$$!!!!! :o)

Friday, January 1, 2010


It is Friday, January 1st, 2010 and as I sit down to write the first of many blogs to come - it's a bit of a cliche that I have made a blog about losing weight! But I need the help and accountablity of writing it down to keep me moving!

Yep that is me - with my fantastic husband and awesome kid! I am soooo round - I need HELP!

I am the General Manager of Goodlife Fitness here in Edmonton, AB - and I am in need of losing 50 pounds by July 17th - 2010 - yes 2010 - so I need to get my butt in gear and get 'running' - literally!!! I am one of the bridesmaids in my best friend, Jill's wedding! And I do NOT want to go back to the 'hometown' weighing any more than what I am now!

For Christmas I bought Wii Fit - yes I run a gym but I am in the middle of construction - so not only is my goal - HUGE but I have no gym! SO - I started on December 26th - and I am down 6 pounds - but I have 44 more to go!

So - this starts the journey to SKINNY ME!!! Daily I will keep you posted on the ups and downs of this magical travel! :o)

Keep your fingers crossed!!!

Mel :o)
