Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Weigh-in: The Beginning

Betty Lou:
I'm not happy--who would be?--but I'm not surprised. Today is the first day of this project, the first day of the new year, and the first day of my "new" life. I'm determined to lose this weight and to look and feel better. I'm with Peggy Sue...it's 2009 and I refuse to buy "fat" clothes. Happy New Year!

Peggy Sue:
I have to say, I'm surprised by today's weight. I really didn't think I had done that badly over the holidays. My goal was to not gain, but I did.....3 pounds! I was so depressed. I am only 10 pounds away from my largest weight ever. I could've let it get me down, but I rallied and just started cleaning the house. I was putting away laundry, and realized that Husband, who was kind enough to do some laundry, had inadvertently shrunk the one and only church outfit that currently fits me. I SO do not want to go shopping for MORE fat clothes. How did this happen to me????

  1. I'm sorry about the laundry mishap. But don't be down about today's number. We're at Day One. There will be lots of good weigh-ins to come!
