A little touch of bitterness has set in...

Hey everybody!
How are you today? Lovin' that Christmas spirit, looking forward to magical moments with friends and family and all that jazz? We're only 9 days away...

All that joy has been swallowed up in one horrible shocking moment, from which I am still trying to recover.

There, I said it, and NOOOO, I am not being a drama-queen.
Fact: I have been diligently tracking my food intake, ( I love sounding clinical about things that nobody cares about), AND I have also been sweating my buns off 4 weeks.
Fact: I have lost 2 pounds. (Hold on, I've got to scream into my pillow now)

My so-called friend, AMANDA, ( I hate to mention names, but I will when trash talking friends behind their backs. Of course, she usually reads this blog which makes it even better) who has challenged me to a death defying weight loss goal of 20 pounds by Feb. 1, has lost 6 pounds. While eating potato soup and grits...and not going to the gym for days!

How dare her????

Granted, she has been sick for a week, and hasn't been able to leave her house. But, right before our weigh in today, she said, and I quote, "Oh, I'm dreading this. You won't believe all the food I've eaten". Or maybe she said it right after, and saw with great joy that she had just won our 'mini-challenge'.
I get to treat her to a manicure/pedicure.
A hideous, vile, and evil something or other is out to get me.
Hold on, I've got to go throw eggs at a moving vehicle, or at least swing the neighbors cat around by it's tail...

Okay, I'm back. Wonder how many calories that burned?

At least my nails are gonna look pretty.

You can do it! You'll be dropping pounds by the second soon. When I was walking this summer to lose weight, I literally had a mantra to chant to keep me going "Look good, beat Shane, WIN!" I'd march everywhere chanting that when I felt like I couldn't walk anymore. I'm rooting for ya! You can do it!!!! I need to get back on the bandwagon myself. I've gained 6 lbs since I started working! :(

Yep, NOTHING more frustrating ever! Sorry friend. But, just stick with it, your time will come.

DAMN HER AND ALL HER LITTLE FLYING MONKEY FRIENDS!!! Actually, I would probably like her if I knew her, but I'm trying to be a support bra to you in this horseshit you're wading through.

So sorry you made the bet in the first place. Now go suck down some ipecac and get on with things.

Hang in there! Don't give up.

As for the camera I have it's a Canon Rebel Digital SLR it's a few years old and has been great. I like that you can change lenses. It took a bit getting used to using the manual modes at first but I've just love this camera.

I've been eying up the new Rebel T2i or 7D.

Now don't move until Santa gets you one of these.
