Today starts the beginning of the Hippo Diet
. Since I love a good contest, and have always wanted to be part of the in crowd, I'm jumping on the proverbial bandwagon. I need to lose about 10 lbs to be where I want to be, so here goes!
I personally will be counting Weight Watchers points. I think you should all join in on the madness, because what woman doesn't want to lose some weight? It will be more fun if we do it together. Come on, you know you want to! That way, when I get crabby from the hunger, you will be crabby from the hunger also. And you'll get me. It's really a brilliant plan.
According to the Queen's
decree, I have to post a before (i.e., fat) picture. I was too lazy to have L take one of me this weekend, so I'm going to use an older one. This is from my friend Newlywed's
wedding last July, where I felt like a hippo next to her 84 lb sister. If you look closely, you can see my large arm and the fat spilling from the sides of my bodice.Bodice is a word I really feel that I don't get to use often enough. I mean, aside from romance novels, where it is being rended apart in a frenzy of passion, there's really not much need for the word, is there?
The bouquet nicely disguises my post- baby midsection, for which I am grateful. Don't you think the bride looks lovely? I really hate being photographed with her...
So here we go girls! Lets get skinny like the trophy wives we hope our husbands never have! Woohoo!!!
