the competition mounts...

to be honest, when i suggested this little competition i did it to help Becky . i truly want her to lose the weight so she will come out and see me...okay, a little selfish on my part. i want to see her. but i also wanted to lose 10 pounds. i want to drop that last 2 pounds of pre-baby weight and be well on my way to feeling REALLY good about my body. and when i suggested our weightloss challenge i really had forgotten how strongly we compete against each other.

i was almost laughing (nervously) while reading Becky's BLOG just now...partly because i feel a little ashamed of being so competitive. but mostly because i AM so competitive and i AM used to winning... and what if i don't win? i mean, Becks lost 2 pounds this week ALREADY? that's pretty crazy weight loss! that's amazing weight loss for anyone! especially someone who has already lost 40 pounds! that's like freakin awesome!! so, it scares me. and it makes me want to hide what i have lost so that i DON'T motivate Becky to work harder and WIN. I WANT TO WIN!

ah, but who cares who "wins" anyway? eating at anthony's with Becky Sue is a win/win situation for both of us! i love ya dietcokeandzingers!

i have lost 3 pounds so far... sorry BECKS

The competition mounts, huh? Well if she wasn't my sister, I'd probably say something like "so does your mom"... but I would never say that about my sister because I love and adore her... I really am glad you suggested this... Every time I'm tempted to have a treat I think "is Anna eating treats? Probably not!"... My weigh in day is Tuesday so I'll know then exactly how much I've lost this week... But you're right, even if we lose, we win!

Good luck to both of you--its so funny about the competitiveness though. I'd be exactly the same way, I'd want to win!

I think I'm gonna get fired. I can't stop reading your posts (at work). :))) Had to pop in and say hey.. You're entertaining (at the very least)... and btw.. that one picture you say you look fat... um, NO YOU DON'T. :P I'd challenge my best friend but she's lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks and I've lost 2. I couldn't handle losing to her.
I too dig the way you write. I will be back again. Can I blogroll you?
