I hate Jon and Kate Plus 8, but this picture does my heart good. This kid has needed this since 2005. That's right Kate, tear that little butt up.

Boobs and Belly Account

I started an ING Direct savings account a few days ago. I love ING because you can open an account with as little as $5 and it earns a lot more interest than traditional savings accounts at bricks and mortar banks. I named it my "Boobs and Belly" account. I know that once I get down to my desired weight, a few things will need to be "enhanced" One doesn't lug around an excess of 200lbs for several years without some type of "battle scars". I'm saving to get the "girls" put back up where they belong and the belly lifted and tightened too. Ideally, it would be wonderful to reach my desired weight at the same time as I make my last deposit, but I'd say knowing my income, expenses, and spending habits, I'll make weight quite a while before I reach the amount of $$ needed. I need a car too, so that will be coming out first as well. A friend recommended a clinic down in South Georgia. Her chimichangas look fabulous so I'm hoping mine will turn out that way too. I checked his website and I was very happy to see that he has done work on African-American patients. This is important because African-American skin tends to scar more easily and can develop keloids which are basically raised scars. My goal is to make the lift w/implants and tummy tuck my Christmas present to myself in Dec. of 2010. Having said that, I'm working right now on creating a budget for myself as well as bring in more income. I'm going to do as much as I can through ebay since it will allow me to work at home, but getting a part time job isn't out of the question as long as I don't allow it to affect my training time. I'm still working on all of those pieces of the puzzle. Maybe I can just strike it lucky and hit the Powerball lottery.

Yes, I actually train SOMETIMES!

I went to the gym yesterday to train with some friends of mine. I debated going at first but I'm so glad I went. Isn't funny how you always feel better AFTERWARDS? I wish that feeling could be bottled for those times when you really really don't want to go. Anyway, it was a fun day. I debated posting the video because I look so FAT. Wait, I look FAT because I am fat, but who's fault is that? Oh well, at least I'm doing something about it and everyone has to start (or restart in my case) somewhere. The clip isn't long because I had already finished my training before I realized that I had forgotten to ask someone to video me, so I'm kinda tired. By posting this, I think it will be good to come back to look at later when all of my fatness is nothing more than a bad memory. One thing I did notice is I think I'm holding the bar a little too high on my neck, but I'm happy with the depth of my squats for now. is acting kinda wonky and skipping a lot. Not sure what thats all about. I'm going to try and get a better copy. Grrrr!!!!
