Do I or don't I?!

Ok, so the past month or so I've been thinking seriously about losing weight. I have a muffintop and I'm not loving that. I've always had a little pooch, but it's gotten out of control. I have four wonderful boys that account for part of it, but I've let things go for far too long. So anyway.....I read an amazing blog: Ragamuffin Soul. Carlos is a worship leader in Atlanta and is an amazing and inspiring man. He's started up a RAGAMUFFIN TOP CHALLENGE to lose weight. We need to have a measurable goal, post a picture, and link back to his page. Well, here's mine:

1) Measurable goal: I weighed 195 a month ago when I started watching what I was eating. I'm down to 185 now. To get to a healthy BMI, I think that I need to be at 170-175, so 175 will be my goal. I'd also like to workout 3 times a week, but I'm going to start with just squeezing in one workout for now....since I currently do nothing but chase my kids. I'm thinking I'll post updates on Friday's since that is my normal weigh-in day.

2) A Picture: Well, this is where I hesitate. I've always been camera shy. Especially now that we're focusing on weight. (Check back for this later)

3) Link back: Well who doesn't love a little linky love? Here's the main page for Ragamuffin Soul and here's the link to the Challenge. I'm around the 28th to sign up. Wanna join?! Feel free!! The more the merrier!!


  1. Good luck to you too! Sounds like you're already well on your way :)

  2. Congrats on already losing 10! Good luck to you, too, and thanks for the encouragement.

    It looks like we have some things in common - photography & graphic design. I do weddings & family pics occasionally for family/friends - but mostly concerts, musical artists, and some nonprofit events. I recently did a Bible College graduation.
