{monday musings}

Hi guys! Here I am...again! I am going to do a video post every Monday and I'd love for you to join me! Post a video response to your weight loss blog (or any blog for that matter) after you watch mine! Make sure you leave a comment linking back to your blog!

Also, I really, really, really want to get a group of gals together as a support group! We can meet up once a month and do something fun, talk about our success and our struggles with weight loss! If you're interested, leave a comment with your email address and I'll get in touch with you!

This blog is definitely in my google reader... and I'm sure once baby arrives, I will need some accountability when it comes to dropping the nearly 50 pounds I've gained. If only I lived in Utah. :-)

Love it Shan! I really have been trying hard. After two babies it only gets harder. A lady in my ward who is in her late thirties said to me. It is not too late! Just start NOW!!! I would love love to get together once a month. I will work on my video post. Thanks!

Katie said...

Shan, I love you! haha

I'm so down for the once-a-month meeting! I'm also considering starting a weight-loss blog. I did a diet blog once but I was pregnant and it was awkward. We'll see if I really get around to it - ha! You're all cute in your video blog.. me, not so much. haha

Oh, and I was thinking we could split a meal when we go to the GNO. I didn't want to ask you on the spot, but I remembered we liked the same things. If you're down for that, I am. It'll help with cost and portion control, kwim?

Katie said...

Oh oh! I thought of something else whilst feeding the babe. Every month I could bring 1-2 handouts the dietitian gave me and we could discuss those and set goals to accomplish by our next meeting...? I dunno, but I'm excited to have someone to report to!

Skinny Jeans Gal said...

Katie, YES let's split a meal and I think bringing handouts when we meet would be great! :)

Hey. My dress is probably just as dirty as yours. I haven't washed it, since i was married. Ew. I know. It was pretty much just dirty at the bottom though. I NEED to get it washed, for sure!

Hey Shan!
Thanks so much for your super sweet comments on my bloggy! I love you! I wish we lived in the same city/state!

Then we could totally workout too! Thanks so much for posting this video! You motivated me not to eat ice cream last night! Dang, I really need to make some sort of an exercise/diet plan. Blah. ate way too much Chinese food last night. SO BAD! And yeah, I hear you on clothes shopping. I love all the cute stuff at Urban Outfitters -- but they don't even have XL! The highest size is an L -- and a bunch of the largest won't fit because of my bust. Dangit!

Proud of you for posting this video and inspiring others!

*Larges (not largest)
Whoa, that was a long, rambling comment!

And typing "large" over and over again is making the word look weird! Eeeeee

Brit said...

What a great idea! Too bad I live out of state too - I would love to have a group to get together with.

You should check out I love it, and you can network with other people in your area.

It's hard, I get super motivated and do really good, and then slip again - so I can totally relate.

Keep up your hard work :) Regardless though, you are super cute!

Robster said...

You are so cute...and honest....and relateable...I love it!

Very motivating video blog, and a great idea! I will be following along from MD, and cheering for you (and using you as a source of inspiration) along the way! Keep up the good work! :)

Heather said...

Yay! I found your skinny jeans blog by way of kelly's fabulous k blog earlier. I would love to keep up with your blog as a source of inspiration and accountability. Love the idea of leaving a video message, too. I'll try it this coming Monday. I can totally relate. I also have a big event coming up in May. My SIL's wedding is May 23rd. The weeks keep counting down and I need to lose about 40 lbs, but I'd take 20 or even 10 at this point!!!

BTW, thanks for the compliments on my bathroom makeover!

Ohhh how I wish I lived in Utah just so I could meet up with you and chit chat. You should be a Morphy Sister. I love your honesty and your cuttness. Ohh the whole bathing suit stuff sucks, but try Shade clothing. They are a little pricey, but they fit great. I just got a black one a few years ago and it is just now going bad. I even wore it while I was preggos. I recently just got a tankini and Target that is black and white polka dotted and has a little ruffle at the bottom. It is super long and it works! Good luck!

I'd love to meet. The more support, the better right?
