The countdown is on...

Over the last few months, Jay and I have been working on becoming healthier. There are hundreds of great reasons for this focus, but the simple explanation is that we were tired of being fat. It’s not a new story, it’s not a unique story, it’s not even an interesting story, but for us and many others, it’s our story. So, at the first of the year we both committed to making becoming healthier, and hopefully skinnier, a priority.

Over the last 6+ months, we bought an elliptical trainer and started on a low fat diet. It’s amazing how many things you can make with turkey, and surprising how tasty some can be. My desk at work is very often called a fruit market for the variety here each day, and Jay even bought whole wheat pasta instead of our regular white grain variety. And once Jay got a handle on how to make our favorite dishes more calorie friendly, it became a little less of a chore and more of a way of life.

Don’t get me wrong. This quest SUCKS a lot of the time. Temptation is at every corner and mocks us – mainly in the form of big fat cheeseburgers and ice cream. With my whole gall-bladder issue, we both fell of the wagon a bit (and that cheeseburger tasted like HEAVEN I tell you!) but we are once again committed to continuing our valiant effort.

Take a minute to scroll down to the very bottom of my blog. Don’t worry, I’ll wait for you.

OK, did you see that ticker? Are you itching to know what the big reveal is? Can you guess??? Oh my goodness, the suspense is just driving you NUTS isn’t it!?

Darn, you got it. But that doesn’t make it any less exciting!

On July 10th, Jay and I will reveal our total weight loss numbers as well as a final picture! This date is significant in that it’s six months from when our “change” started, and it’s also the weekend before we head on vacation (where we will undoubtedly eat ice cream and cheeseburgers to our tummy’s content.) And for easy math, it's a month from now.

Be sure to check back…. You won’t want to miss the new and improved look of THESE people.
