What started as a simple weight loss fundraiser, (loosing 50 pounds for orphanage 50...hence the 50 for 50 title) has sky-rocketed into marathon runs on either side of the Atlantic, Zumbathons, rainbow hair gangs and much more! Do sponsor all of this effort on any of the fundraiser posts...this one is a good post as it contains many links to find out more! And please feel free to join in any of the teams if you so desire. Just contact me to get added into any of the fun.
And so how is my weight loss progressing I hear you cry? Well it's very slow, the scales have been going crazy and are being very unkind! I have been loosing the plot with weight not shifting as fast as I think it should considering how much running i am doing and even threw my scales out of the house and into the bin last week in a fit of rage!!! (they have since been fished out and hidden by a scared husband who thinks I have now truly lost it!)
And if you are still itching for a number then I think its around the 20 pounds lost mark! Well that's what flashed up just before i threw the scales out of the window in a rage!!! I will try to be brave and do a proper poundage update on the next prize giveaway!
So instead of official figures, checked and verified, I have taken some pictures of a recent victory to show you I really am not just all excuses...these jeans wouldn't go on when I started all this and now they fit!
Does my bum look big in this? Urm yes, but I'm working on it!
Small victory of denim and I am very pleased!
See they are even buttoned up!
It's slow but it's happening and thank you for all your support for the kiddies out at orphanage 50 who are in such desperate need! xxxxx
