Yesterday, I went over and did some trade with the fabulous Sarah of Stutterin' Mama. She took some stellar photos for me! THANK YOU, Sarah! She talked about some concerns, including me hitting the gym so hard. It could be easy to burn out. And easy to hurt myself, which I've already done. So I agree! To help with the first part - burning out - I thought I'd roll you guys into the challenge, if you're up for it. But first, the outfit!
I love this dress, it's a fairly new purchase, and I think I'll be sorry when it is time to put it in the shop! I like outfits that are SMART, sophisticated and wholly complete. I have everything I need for a blue and white ensemble! The gloves are favorites - I actually bought a second pair when I found them some time ago, so that I'll have backups when these wear out!
Now.... to the good stuff. Want $50 to the shop? It's not a giveaway. It's a challenge. A reward.
Everyone loses weight better on the buddy system. But those sites like MyFitnessPal (which I'm TRYING to do) and Livestrong leave me cold. You're my peers. And some of you want to join in - you've told me so!
So.... the Challenge.
Have at least 20 pounds that you can safely lose.
Start a blog, and post at least three outfits a week.
You must post your starting weight, your goal weight, and you must weigh in with me once a week on Wednesdays.
You can, as well, have a goal of waist size inches.
At the end of the 365 days, I will give a $50 Gift Certificate to the first five people to complete the challenge with me, and hit their goal weight. (Or close to it, I'll be flexible.) Chime in down below in the comments if you're going to participate, and when you start (start before the end of May), post a link to the blog you'll doing it on! Start today - you'll have 341 days to get fit (and fitting pretty clothes) with me!

Purse: Barn Sale. I feel a little guilty - it came with size 4.5 Narrow shoes, and I sold them off and kept the purse because I LOVE it. I never split up sets!
