My last meal ...

Last night I had my last (fattening) meal: Burger King whopper and fries. Today I started Weight Watchers. I'm going to my friend's wedding in Jamaica next May, so I have one year to get swimsuit-ready. No excuses. No other option. I must lose weight. I'm not sharing a beach with a bunch of friends in my current "condition."

So I need your support. Are you with me?!? This is it. This is the year.

But it will so be worth it. Check this place out: Sandals Whitehouse. Oh yeah, and I'll be healthy and skinny and all that too. Seriously, I'll never step foot in a Lane Bryant again. I mean, thank goodness they were there all these years, but ... come on.

So, without further ado, here I am, in all my chubby glory ... the before pictures:

Sorry to Donna and Heather for getting half-faces in my before pictures. They were the latest close-to-full-body shots that I had.

Before I head out for Jamaica next year I'll post the afters. No excuses: I will be thinner. Hold me to it. Cheer me on. Yank the Ben & Jerry's from my hands. But seriously, have you tried the Imagine Whirled Peace? It's so dee-lish.

Yeah, it's going to be a long year.

luv, em

Emily, I can so relate, when I came back to Inspired I went to the dr. and gained 8 lbs in two months. I said enough is enough and cut out the bread and potatoes and am working out 4-5 times a week. Lost 10 lbs. in the two months since Inspired.

It is definitely harder to take off than put on...Oh and why do I have back boobs, but god didn't bless me in the front. Oh and if one more person asked me when I was due. Hello, it's just fat!!!

I am right there with you. It is hard, but think of how skinny we will be at next year's Inspired. You go girl!
