Butterflies & 10 pounds.

Ok, it has obviously been a long time since I last posted anything b/c I couldn't even remember where to go to post. Sheesh!

I have butterflies in my tummy! We're #43 on IA's 'list' and there are only 3 or 4 families ahead of us with requests for 'either' gender, mainly 'up to 18 months'. We are the only one 'up to 1 year'. Then there are 3 or so families that have not added their info to the list so I'm not sure what they've requested or if they've received a referral. BUT we are matched or close to being matched I think. Insert big grin here!

That being said I really need to get healthy and start feeling strong so I can keep up with 2 toddlers (Josina will be 2 in February - crazy!). I have the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred dvd and never use it. I also pay for a gym membership each month and never go. I want/need to lose 10 pounds as my clothes don't fit me properly and I feel terrible about how I look. Anyone out there who wants to join me in my crusade to lose some weight and feel better about themselves? I need some support and someone to motivate me. This adoption wait has added to my weight. ;)

I pray that your referral will come very soon. Thinking of you.

I've been assuming you have already been matched and can't wait to hear more! Something tells me you'll have the BEST Christmas present ever!

I'll lose a few pounds with you. Since my ovaries decided to crap out on me a few years ago my weight is all over the map (but mostly north, as in UP). I used to be skinny and shapely, now I'm just round and cute...

Got a date/deadline in mind?

I'm tempted to join you by my real name, but I think this will be more fun!

Also, I hope you finally got your first package too. I see you got your second one and I'm glad you like. If it still hasn't arrived let me know and I will try to track it down.

Merry 2 1/2 weeks before Christmas! Please be sure you tell me about your referral ASAP!!!

Me, your secret pal

Secret Pal! I can't believe you are doiing this to meeee!! ha ha! Do you have the 30 Day Shred or a gym membership? I bought the 30 day shred at Future Shop for about 10 dollars. All you need is a mat and 5 pound hand weights (or 7 if you want)...all I have in the house is 5 pounders.
Darci did Day one today and then facebooked me to let me know, which then motivated me to get off my butt and I did Day one also.
Hopefully you have it or something else like it. :)

Let's do it ladies! Muffin top & double chin - you're history, lol!

Darci- I think this will keep our minds off the anticipation a bit, let's hope!
