My camera.......1 chin!
Since it is Monday (and all great diets start on Monday) I am putting it out there that I am working extra hard this week to drop a few lbs.- working hard is the wrong choice of words...I am GOING TO WAR. GOING TO WAR against junk food, my soda addiction, and my mother-in-law. Okay---not my mother-in-law. She is amazingly supportive and a sweetheart...I am feuding with her camera. She pulls the stinking thing out at all occasions and I tend to hide from it. I don't hide because I don't want photos of special days or because I believe that my soul will be trapped inside...I hide because her camera HATES me.

Some people name their cars...I am naming m m-i-l's camera....Lets call her Nellie. How do I know that the camera is a girl? Easy...because no matter how great I am feeling about myself- it cuts me down! Does the camera know that I previously bought my m-i-l a camera and that it wasn't the one OR does it just have a difference in opinion about the number of chins that I have. I say 1, MY camera says 1, Nellie....NELLIE SAYS 2! I have no proof to share as many of my m-i-l's photos of me have been burned and/or discarded. Nellie loves my kids and I have great shots of them but not me.
What Nellie sees...!

So..I am not taking it anymore! This was the last weekend that I will spend hiding from Nellie. It is time for me to get back in the picture with my family! You hear that are going down.

This week, even though its fine to post anything...I would love to know what you are going to war for? Your family, health, wealth, fitness, or acceptance? Share a story that tells us about you! And please...if you have any quick weight loss tips...share those too!

  7. Visiting from Create with Joy. Wishing you luck on meeting your goals. I know how hard it is to give up the diet soda.

    1. Oh Georgia...I am doing what I call the "double down"...I drink 1 soda then 2 waters!!! That should erase the soda right?? Then I need my normal 8 glasses of water....I am probably going to gain a lot of water weight!!!
