Rats. Blogger was being most uncooperative in uploading this picture, so I was about to give up when it suddenly decided to work. So here it is - my butt. I had my son take this picture (much glee on his part). I, on the other hand, was a little horrified at how much like an old lady's my rear view was.
I am starting out at (gasp) a size 20 bottom half, so if I am to lose two sizes, I will be a 16 in October. I fully intend for all my other challenger-types to be singing my praises on their own blogs!
I have a doctor's appointment later on this month. He has been after me to quit smoking and lose weight for years. I finally quit smoking on January 13, 2005. Now it's time for the other half of the equation. I had some wonderful support for the smoking thing (looking at you, Alice) and since I'm joining this challenge, I expect some support in the "Lose That Ass" thing, too. I'll be giving it as well.... because I know that when it came to smoking, it kept me going on days when I'd have otherwise lit up. I didn't want to have to post that I inhaled. And in October, I don't want to post that my pants size is... 20.
Good luck to me! And to everyone else joining in. We can do it together - and who knows? Maybe come October, we'll ALL be singing each other's praises!
