Blogger Butt

As many of you know, BHE started this Blogger Butt Smackdown at the first of the year. As I have said before, I have been amazed by the progress my fellow bloggers have made while participating in this "challenge" of sorts. I have also said that I'm not really participating because I am NOT good at this diet thing, and I usually fail. If I don't play, I can't lose, therefore I don't have to admit my failures - haha I'm not real good at that. That's kind of like admitting to your husband you are wrong, and I am never wrong, so I wouldn't really know how to do that ;)

Anyway, about 4 weeks ago my husband and I went on this "let's try a better budget" thing. We thought it was a good idea so we could manage to afford to send our children to college (reality set in when we started visiting colleges- that's a post for another day!) So, because I really, really like to spend money on shoes, clothes, etc. I just knew this was going to be a challenge- more than you know. Wait, how did this go from weight loss to money saving???

So where was I? Oh yeah, so, I've been bringing my lunch EVERYDAY since that fateful "better budget" day, and when I put my pants on this morning, I noticed my belt wasn't fitting quite right. When I looked down, I realized that WOOOO HOOOO, I could move the buckle AN ENTIRE HOLE! That's right folks, I have lost an ENTIRE INCH! I'm not really sure when that happened, but I am extremely proud of myself! How many pounds you ask? I don't know, I don't get on the scale- it tends to yell at me to GET OFF so I just avoid the humililation.

So, there you have it, I am secretly participating in this damn Blogger Butt Smackdown, although I will only share positive results :) You have all inspired me!

We are also having budget trauma here, but we've gained a ton of weight (the stress, you know!) SO now I can't like you anymore. *sigh*
