Weight Loss

Thanks for all the advice and well wishes from yesterday's post. I was feeling pretty bad and guilty about the bedtime issues with Ashley, but you guys not only made me feel like I'm not alone, you had some great advice. I will let everyone know what works and what doesn't. As for last night, well, I just let Ray take over. I did hear some crying but eventually she went to sleep.

Onto more happier, lighter news!

I haven't mentioned here how much weight Ray has lost. I don't know his starting figures, but the guy only weighs about 10 pounds more than me! And he looks great. He went from a 38 waist to a 32 waist. Last weekend, I made him buy a "cool" looking pair of jeans to celebrate. We went into Banana Republic and after getting over the sticker shock, I told him he deserved it (and that was the only damn pair of jeans from there he was going to get).

My weight loss keeps costing us money too. I had to take my wedding band and engagement ring to be resized. They were pretty much falling off my fingers. And now I am finally wearing a single digit size clothing in pants. Yea for me! Although that just means I need to buy more clothes, outlets, here I come...

That is so freaking awesome! You have to be so proud of yourself...and right in time for shorts weather! I need to get my butt in gear...I've been pretty good about the working out thing, but here it is Wednesday and I haven't gone yet this week. You have inspired me...keep up the good work...Ray too!

Stupid blog ate my response.

GO Ray!

Go Amy!

Having my ring resized would be the ULTIMATE goal for me. That would thrill me to no end.

The money you're spending....totally worth it!

Congrats to both of you! I know you are working super hard, and well duh! The results are paying off! And single digits? Totally jealous. That's what my goal is,but I'm not quite there yet....almost,but not quite!

Have fun hitting the outlets. I would join you, since I could use some smaller clothes myself, but we sorta live too far away from each other. BUMMER!

A single digit number!! Wow - that in itself is a reason to buy MANY MANY clothes :)

That is fabulous that Ray did it too - congrats to him as well!
