Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Guess What Came In The Mail Today?

My five inch a size 6...
Admit it, I know you gals are jealous...(or I suppose some guys could be too.)
Every girl dreams about clomping around on stage in something like these. LOL!
Guess what also came in the mail today?
My sample suit to aid in my personal fitting.
Now what I do is call the designer on the phone and we do a phone fitting.
She mailed me a top with numbered straps, a bottom, a measuring tape, a marker and pins.
Once she gets all these measurements done just for me,
She'll start to cut my suit.
(the cut of the suit that you see here may not be what I actually order)
And, yes, I tried on the bottoms already. did it fit?
Umm....let's see how I can put this....
I was surprised that the deep V in front combined with the sides
which are suppose to ride my hips high (unlike a swimsuit)
looked pretty darn good.
In fact, when I strike the correct pose...
my stomach looks flat...
I do have some stretch marks on my belly from having five kids,
but they're not purple or anything.
Once you paint the fake tan on...
I don't think anyone would ever know that I had kids...
let alone am currently pregnant.
Other than that, I really wanted to let you all know how grateful I am for your encouraging words and kind comments.
Also, I know you're wondering who won the drawing.
Well, this is what I was thinking...
that I would do the drawing on Sunday afternoon and post the
winner that night or Monday night.
Tomorrow my husband and I will be gone most of the day
attending another class related to the figure competition.
This was all planned before I found out I was pregnant.
The same gal, who I traveled far to attend her
nutrition class three weeks ago, is teaching this class too.
It is a class that basically shows you the correct way to pose yourself when you're on stage for your figure competition or body building competition.
I'm hoping this class also shows the correct way to pose in these five inch heels.
Boy, didn't these shoes arrive just in a nick of time?
Today was a good day. It's almost midnight here's my food log.
I've decided to add a few hundred calories on the days when I do cardio and weight lifting at the same time.

Well, that's it for tonight. I'll let you all know how the posing class goes tomorrow. I also have off tomorrow as far as any work-outs go, so that will be nice. I dropped 4/10 of a pound this morning from yesterday.
Have a great Saturday all!

  1. Thank you for upping your calories.....still going to worry about you anyway, though, okay?

    Also want you to know - I'm back - restarted my 20 in 10 yesterday - already down 1....grin....I am so going to do this! Now that it's riding season again, my horse will thank me too!

  2. WOW! LOL! You are SOOOOOO brave...I would never be able to wear the heels or the suit myself! GO SUNSHINE!!! :)

    Glad you had a bit more energy today!!!! YAY!! Have a great time at your class! :)


  3. "She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini..." Hahah, wow that thing is tiny. All the hard work you have done though is no match for that suit and heels. I wear high heels for work all day, every day, but those babies look difficult.

    Do you ever crave foods you used to eat? Do the Nutty Bars ever call you? Does a bismark ever call you? What do you do? What is your favorite "healthy" food that you have recently discoverd?

    You are doing amazing! Keep up the great work and don't forget the rest for the 6th peanut = )

  4. Mama mia - whoa. I think I'm speechless. Those are some bottoms!

  5. How completely fun! This whole suit sizing and all is so facinating... and you want to know something else?? When you said "suit", I am thinking like business suit! ROFL!!!

    I about fell off my chair, and had a duh moment when I saw THE suit! LOL! aaaahhhh, I get it now!! ha ha!

    oh boy! Great eats this week, chicka!! Wee hoo!

  6. the suspense!!! who won? ;)

    i've always wondered about those high-cut figure bottoms. they look fine on figure-competitors obviously (i mean what wouldn't) but what about not-so tone people like me?

  7. I could NEVER walk in those heels! lol I'm sure you will strut your stuff just fine in them though! lol :)

  8. I love those heels.. as for the suit I don't think I would even attempt to pull that off when I was 120 pds. You are one brave momma!
