bouncy butt.

Thank you for you comments on my last post :) Your encouragement means so much to me! Seriously!

Just a few minutes ago, I was boredly looking through my iPhoto at photos taken a year or so ago (I know, I know, I need a boyfriend or a hobby…heheheh…I’m mostly kiddin’ about the boyfriend part since Juli and I swore off men this year…“It’s a selfish year!” said she, but it isn’t working so well with all the boy talking we do…)

Anyways! These set of photos (here are two) from late March of last year caught my eye

I need to get down to that size again! I think I was a little over 200 then.

Yesterday, the child (I babysit) was bouncing a little ball around the house and it hit me on the butt, but I didn’t really notice :) But I did notice child running for ball and saying my butt is bouncy so I put two and two together. Friends, that is not good! My behind should not be sending things flying across the room!

I know I’m about holistic ways of losing weight yadda yadda, but SIGGGGGH I want/need to see consistent results (and consistency DOES mean maintenance to me). So, soon I’m going to get back to public weigh-ins on my blog. And maybe I could start a summer weight-loss countdown challenge? Maybe with a focus on eating clean and regular exercise, ya know...drinking water…all the good stuff?! Maybe with a goal of a heathy 1-2 pound(s) loss per week? The details can be hammered out later, but would anyone join me? :) It'll be fun!

Hope everyone is well! Tomorrow is Friday and I have a fun weekend planned! If you’re in New York, Juli is organizing a benefit concert for Japan that you should to-ta-lly come to :)

Lovelovelove!

Amy at lifesjourneywithasmile.com is doing a challenge from now until the beginning of summer - you set your own goals, don't have to be weight related, though most of us have something about it on there. Mine is to get under 200 lbs. - about two pounds a week will get me there! I love challenges, they help me stay on track and focused.

Good luck on your weight loss. I'm sure with the right amount of commitment you will reach your goals.

I'd like to join that challenge :) I have some weight I'd like to lose, but I need to work on portion sizes and drinking water!

Alexia @ Dimple Snatcher said...

Yayyy, glad to have you, Kate! :)

I am IN for a summer countdown!!! Absolutely love the idea.

I'm down for a summer count down Alexia, let's do it!
And honestly, I only wish I had a bouncy butt. Sometimes I switch my hips just a bit harder than necessary to give my booty a bit of extra bounce....how embarrassing huh? lol :o)

My butt could send stuff bouncing across very large rooms! Think of it this way, if our butts were large yet saggy, like a wet pillow-nothing would bounce would it!? Id rather be bouncy! :-D

Steph said...

Girl I just found your blog. You are HILARIOUS, hahaha. I seriously had to try not to giggle at work.
I'm sure that I'd send a ball flying too - I've got a booty on me too ;) Here's to them, though!
