When I lose, YOU could win!
Now that Kynthia is 6 weeks old, it's time for me to crack down on the weight loss issue! Gotta try and lose some of this baby weight before the next baby comes along...Ha!
I thought I'd try something fun to motivate me to keep working at it. I love to create little things here and there, but sometimes have a hard time finding an occasion. So...I'm going to offer a giveaway gift every time I lose 5 pounds! Here's how it will work:
*Visitors (that's you!) will leave comments on THIS POST.
*Whenever I lose another 5 pounds, I'll draw a number and the corresponding commenter will win the giveaway gift for that round.
*You can leave as many unique and meaningful comments as you'd like on as many days as you'd like. I will update my progress and journal my feelings/thoughts/accomplishments/struggles on this post. (I'll just keep editing it to add an update) **clarification: by saying "unique and meaningful", I just mean, please don't copy and paste your comment over and over for more entries. Yes, people do this!)
*Second, third and fourth drawings will be held at the same time as each 5 pound drawing when I meet the following further goals: 1. drinking adequate water daily, 2. staying within my eating plan daily, 3. doing some sort of physical activity daily.
I'm hoping the combination of your encouraging comments and my desire to create a little something will motivate me to lose a little of this extra weight this fall! Keep in mind that the giveaway gift will be small---but it will just be a little something to say THANK YOU for encouraging me along the way!
So, start leaving your comments now...and please bookmark the page so you can come back and hold me accountable! Ha!
Have a great day!

So, it's been a little while and I thought I should give an update! I've definitely had a rough time of it! I got down to just a half a pound away from my first 5 pounds...and then gained again! :( I'm on a pretty good track this weekend though, so hopefully I'll be checking in soon with a good loss!

Success!! I am happy to report that I've FINALLY passed the 5 lb. mark! :) (I actually passed this mark on Monday but have just now gotten the chance to update...) Those of you who've struggled with weight loss know it's so much more in the mind than anything else! :) Anyway, I did the first drawing and the winner is...Faith Hope and Cherrytea! I will be contacting you today for your address so I can send you a little something. Thanks so much, everyone! Keep the comments coming and hopefully we'll be doing another drawing here really soon!
