I Lost

Well, I've been waiting and delaying posting this trying to get pictures uploaded but it's either my computer or blogger that's not cooperating and I'm already late. I need to get on with it.

Operation Lose That Ass

I lost.

I didn't meet the goal I had set for myself. Yeah, I got in a size 12, but to me, it doesn't count. I shouldn't have to suck it in that hard to get the zipper up causing a rather scary and overly large muffin top to emerge from the waistband of my pants. They were rather handy arm rests though.

So the next thing I should do I guess is start visiting others blogs to see who I have to post some major ass kissage posts about. *sigh* It's my own fault, so I shall endure with good grace (me? have good grace? yeah - that describes me)

Okay victims, I'm off for a visit.

Should we all vote or should we get Nikki M to decide who the winner is?

Did you fail to lose any weight or did you simply not meet your goal? There certainly is a difference.

As for the photo thing, I had a similar problem. I couldn't get the shoes post up because the photos wouldn't upload. Are you using Internet Explorer as your browser? If so switch to Firefox. That solved it for me.

I had to laugh at the muffin top comment. You crack me up!

Aw, hell, Nikki, that sucks.
But at least you can get within spitting distance of a 12... that's awesome.
Are you going to keep on after this?

I haven't been around here long enough to know what goal you set for yourself and what the consiquece for losing is but don't give up. I've been trying to lose that 'baby fat' since I had my daughter....yeah she's 3 1/2 now. lol. It takes time and commitment. And it just plain old sucks sometimes.

Sven - I lost weight - but I failed to meet the goal of getting into a size 12 without having to "suck it in and hold my breath". That's not what I was shooting for.

...and I had thought of switching to firefox but my computer is currently using a kickstand and I would hate to jolt it like that with such a drastic change LOL

Les - Girl! I put my drink down. LOL

Mel - I'm going to try and maintain for a bit and do again once things at my house have settled in. I've already told Nikki M. that I would do another one of these with her once her shoulder gets all better.

Jazz - do you know your screen name is the same as one of my cats? LOL ..and I wanted to be comfortably in a size 12 - and yeah, it's hard - but these ladies really made it fun.

Hey---here's the good part about being a size 12... It's not considered 'plus size' anymore, and size 12 is very sexy on some women! I'm not into women who are a size 0. A little meat on their bones is great! :) The most important thing, is what "you" feel most comfortable with. Good luck!!! And congrats!

Hey, you're in them - even if there is a muffin top! I got into the next size down, but couldn't zip them up.... I think Quinn might be our winner - she actually made in comfortably into 1 size down and is close to moving to that second size down... Let's face it - she worked her ass off! However, she has inspired me to greater efforts. I'm walking with my son almost everyday, commuting on my bike when I can, and have now (well, as of yesterday) taken up Karate. I'm also paying a lot more attention to what I eat and I feel a lot better.

Stick with it, girl! and when you and Nikki M decide to do another one, count me in!!!!

Aww hell. I can't make a smartass comment now. Ya' ruined it, damn you.

I got a Diet Pepsi sitting here. You want it? If I offer you chocolate you'd kick my ass...again.

12 is still good. Who the hell wants to look like Nicole Ritchie? Ew.

the muffin top arm rest is the funniest thing I have read all day!!

Keep going woman... you'll get there.

Regardless, you remain a sexy sexy beast.

Roaaaar!

~deb - you have such valid points - I just wish I could actually go out in public in a siz twelve with out damaging anyone's optic nerves.

Sayre - I think you may be right - damn.


Jenn - true but the holidays are coming up and I just have to make the yummies you know?

I think sayre should actually be the ultimate winner!! not only has she become motivated she has made a conscious decision to remain motivated by not only walking, biking but also by signing up and committing to the world of martial arts. Also she has used this opportunity to involve her whole family which is very cool.

yes, I worked hard too...but I think she has worked harder and is more committed. I enjoyed being a MOTIVATOR for everyone and was happy to see I did infact help keep up some momentum.

Ahh... I think you're all winners...
looking forward to the pics!!!!

Christina - are you sick? no snarkiness from you....hmmm.....that can only mean one thing.........THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END.

Kristen - thanks

Mr Fabulous - you and I must have met in person. and raooooor right back at cha

I'm voting for Quinn too. She has been an awesome motivator this whole time. She even went down a whole size and almost two!

Quinn for President! (of OLTA)

And if you and Nikki decide to do it again, I am right there!

i should be game in another month or 2 for whoever is game for round two (i can almost lift my arm up to boob level!)! congrats to everyone! even though some of you haven't reached your goal, everyone worked towards getting healthier and that is awesome.

good to hear from you nikki! we were missing you.

 
At Wednesday, October 04, 2006 8:43:00 PM, Blogger Sayre said...

Thanks, Quinn - but I think you're it. You did more to motivate me and everyone else.... and you actually came closest to reaching goal. Besides - I already count myself the ultimate winner because I'm not stopping. I have a long way to go, but I WILL get there. OLTA went a long way towards getting me started (in spite of all that darned barbecue). I intend to "finish". When I can wear my engagement ring again, I declare myself winner. But that's probably 80 lbs away...

If I don't see you all in competition before March, look for me - I will be a different person!

You did not lose anything but weight, my dear! You practically started the diet yesterday. Keep up the good work and just because the contest may be over doesn't mean you have to stop trying.

No reason to give up, Nikki. You'll get into that size 12, lickety split (I always wanted to say that).

i say focus on the positive of the situation and keep working toward your goal

either that or makes friends with a plastic surgeon who can suck out what you want out ;)

If I was sick I'd be puking your way, love. *smooch*

You still accomplished something, Nik-a-lik. I wouldn't call you a loser (unless you count the fact that you lost weight, then of course, you are a loser but in a good way....um....yeah)

I vote for either Sayre (who really worked hard to change her lifestyle) or quinn (who not only worked hard, but shook her pom-poms for everyone else).

Girls rock!

You still lost SOME weight, which is still a good thing.

You all won, no matter who actually *won*

I'd say you all won and should all be proud for what you accomplished.

Can't wait to see the pics.

I'm with Sven about firefox. I also have an easier time uploading if I upload first to flickr, then just give blogger the URL.

I think you might being a bit to harsh on yourself. The fact that you are eating healthy and working out is a BIG life change. For that you are the "biggest winner"
~clapps hands~
Keep going! Don't loose faith.

But you lost weight! That's good, right? Never give up, never surrender (as my ex-boyfriend always says).

I'm still proud of you, sugar-booger. Keep working at it, baby-doll-tender-love. The slower that you lose the weight, the better, believe it or not. So, a healthier life style in the long run is better anyway. Screw dress sizes!

You're probably like, "Shut the fuck up, Kevin!"

I thought of Charles this morning...I almost kicked the neighbor's cat. I said, "almost"...so he shouldn't get too excited. :)

You inspired me, Nikki.
