Haven't you always wanted the title "Biggest Loser"?... well I haven't but now I do. Many of you probably have seen the show "Biggest Loser", well I'm on it now... JUST KIDDING!!!! No, that wasn't me in the spandex-PLEASE!!! But I have joined the "Biggest Loser" group of women at the school where I volunteer in PTA to see who can loose the most weight and percentage of body fat in 11 weeks and change their eating habits and way of life!

I'm writing to tell you this for 2 reasons, One, because I believe that if I have things like this in writing, it holds me more liable to do what I say I'm going to do and Two I can use all the encouragment you can possibly dole out. We are doing it for 11 weeks because that is how long we have until Spring Break and you know everyone wants to look better in those bathing suits! There are 25 of us signed up.

So I'm off to a good start today, I've been walking around my fields, I'm on my 2nd bottle of water and I have eaten pretty lightly. Dinners are my struggle to keep on track, so please pray that I have the will power to follow through with this plan.

I know I can do it if I put my mind to it. Hey I just made a rhyme and wasn't even trying :) See good things are happening already.
P.S. There is no photo because I dislike my photo right now, but maybe in 11 weeks if I'm feeling happier about my picture you may just get a peek-- wait and see :)

I am so excited for you! I will be praying for you and will try to help you stay accountable. I appreciate your recent e-mails and hope to get to them this weekend. Hopefully, if we see you for spring break, you'll look like a new woman!! Now let me set this straight, we like the woman you are now but because you want the change, we want it for you :) Wait 'till you see you little brother. He looks SOOOOO good!!! He's lost over 20 pounds.

I know you can lose weight if you set your mind to it! Do it for yourself first, then for your family. Those precious girls of your's want to keep you around for a long time! You are a beautiful woman now, you will only improve from here! Love you! Mom
