Facebook This!

Last week, my sister asked me if I had a Facebook account. When I asked why, she said she just had to show me her engagement pictures. Ummmm, why can't she just email them to me? (BTW, I am totally over not being picked and now one of my other sisters is not part of it either...the little diva changed her mind and is having one sister and one friend as her peeps. Flighty!) I am just not into these social applications. I know I'll get slammed about this, but my position has always been that MySpace is Facebook can just get added to that list. Giggleman tells me that it just has to do with my "Old Soul" attitude. Hey, I love my computers, IPods, and other gadgets just as much as the young kiddies! But, I love old movies and music and just get along better with those older than me...nothing wrong with that! Do I want to get in touch with people I used to go to school? Not so much! Am I a bit interested? Maybe!

So, I logged into Giggleman's account (yes, he has profiles on both sites and I remind him often how lame he is!) to check out her pictures and other stuff. I know he has a lot of high school friends and others from his hometown linked to him, so I thought I'd search with my school info and see what came up. I only ran across a few names that I recognized. So, unlike what my sisters and Giggleman told me, I am not the ONLY person in the world who is not on Facebook or MySpace. Neener, neener, neener!

I checked out her, I had a reality check! I did not think I looked smaller than I do now when I lost a ton of weight almost 3 years ago now. In one of the Diva's albums, she had pictures of me from Christmas that scared me to death! sisters2

My weight was up about 15 pounds more than now...I could have been Santa's stand-in! I really noticed the difference in my face. I need to find my other pictures to show a comparison. I'm the one in the pink on the right!

bridesmaidsI also found a picture she posted of all my bridesmaids in their dresses. I just hope they still fit into them by this time next year! Of course, she doesn't have a picture of me in my wedding dress because she isn't in it! LOL!

In weight loss news...I've found a couple of challenges that will keep me motivated! The wonderful Angie has set up a Biggest Loser challenge that begins on Sunday. I also found a challenge on SparkPeople related to the Biggest Loser. Yay!

Off to workout before I have to get ready for work, so I'll be back with more tomorrow!

Good Luck with all of the challenges!

I have lots of "those" photos. Denial only lasts until I come face to face with myself in a picture and think Oh my Gosh, what have I done?

For far too long I have just chosen not to look.
Not any more though. This is the last time I will see these numbers on the scale!

Good Luck with the challenge! I'm facing "those" photos lately, I can't believe I've let myself gain back some of what I lost - I wasn't even close to goal yet, eeek! Can't wait to get started though, we can do this! :)
