Want to see Dama in shorts and halter?

OK - this is scary. An AW friend (Dama) and I have entered into the same agreement as WV Writer and her friend. Truth is, we both agreed that we need to lose a little weight and what better way than by motivating each other. Or in this case, being motivated not to lose the contest. LOL

All I can say is that I am sooooo glad that I went out to lunch today to Little Italy - my favorite restaurant. I think I may have just enjoyed my last Chicken Piccatta (grilled chicken in a lemon, butter and wine sauce) in a long time!

Hey, any of you other AWers (or other readers) want to join in? See, if there are three or four of us, than the chance of me losing declines! LOL

Dama, by the way, for those of you who do not know her, is young! Young enough to be my youngest daughter. I think metabolism might be on her side. But, that's ok. I really need to be motivated to do this. My high school reunion is this summer.

Am I a fool for going up against Dama? Maybe. But it's all in fun. And the only way that I will stay true to following a diet is if the stakes are high - and trust me, they are! LOL

So...if you want to join in, let me know. If you want to see Dama in shorts and a halter (she looks good in them already) -- then keep checking in to see how we're doing. Sorry, no pictures yet.

We decided that slow and steady is best. Even so, I know 10 can be lost in one week if necessary but those next five are harder. So...for that reason, I'll go for 10-15 pounds.

Eating right and more exercise is the key. I can't wait to see Dama in her shorts and halter. LOL

Let the game begin.....


  1. Loooool genetics are against me, don't worry, most of my family is overweight (on both sides), including mom, dad and my brother :)

    We have to set goals, though.

    BTW, Capoeira is this really cool brazilian martial arts thingie that combines dancing with fighting with gymnastics. Needless to say, I need to lose weight to be able to do it :)

  2. Tee-hee! Kick some butt, gals.

    You're fun.

  3. Good luck you two!
    And no, I don't think I'll join you at this time. :D

  4. LOL - thanks Jenna and Unique.

    I've been meaning to do this for a while, now finally I will HAVE to.
