And the winner is ...

Okay, so it's 12:09am and the entry into the great Adidas work-out pants give-away officially closed at 12:00am. I went to and got it to put the entrants into random order. The winner of the pants is .... *kl* from YAWN to Come Hither. Congratulations kl! Thanks to all the participants. My pants were very happy to see that there were many healthy potential homes for them. (kl, email me at trixiebelden2006 at yahoo dot com and let me know where to mail your prize!)

I also ended up a winner this week! I now have a toe-hold in the 150's! I'm very excited and hope to keep up this losing trend. Even if they aren't big losses, I'll take a 1.4 lb. loss any day!

Oh, and the pants karma is definitely on my side today. A friend who gained weight last year had pants that no longer fit (they are too big because she has since lost the weight - go her!). So, I have 5 pairs of pants and 2 cute skirts that are just a hair to tight on me right now. In a couple of weeks they are going to look and feel great. I'm a little confused though ... they are all a size 8. I some how skipped size 10 this summer. I don't know what to do about being a size 8. I haven't been that size since high school. I didn't expect this to happen so soon. I still have 18.4 lbs. to go. I will totally freak out if I get down to a size 6. How I feel about sizes, and what size I'm *supposed* to be, is a whole post in itself. So, I'll save that for another time.

And lastly, Amazon Alanna included me in a list of blogs for a very sweet award. Thank you! I now need to pass on the love, but I need time to think about who to pass it along to. I'll post on that later too.

Oh, and one last thing. Thanks to everyone who commented on my loose skin post. It was very interesting to hear how you all feel. I will probably continue the conversation in a post sometime in the future.

Okay, I'm done for now. Good night!

Whoo whoo! And the hand-me-down clothes exchange (due to weight loss) continues!

When I gained weight, my sister gave me the clothes that were too tight for her because she had gained weight also. It would have been a much happier experience if I had gotten or given clothes because of weight loss, but I was still grateful for all the money I saved.

Way to go on getting some clothes from your friend! That is nice to give clothes to others when we lose.
Have a great weekend!

Woohoo! I'm so excited about my pants! Yay for me! And yay for you for no longer fitting in them.

Congrats on your loss this week. Wow! A size 8? I don't think I've ever worn that. I remember wearing a size 14 dress to my Bat Mitzvah when I was 13. Sometimes I feel like I went from a size 6X in little kids' clothing to a 14. Really ... I was tiny in 4th grade and a real porker by 8th. Hmm ... something to bring up with my future therapist.

Thanks again for the pants! I'll email you.
