Sure, I noticed my clothes not fitting like they used to, but reality finally hit when I looked at my vacation photos from Las Vegas. I have been slacking big time; eating more and exercising less. In the past seven months, I've put on quite a bit of "happy weight." It's (here comes the Obama quote) time for a change. My goal is to lose thirty pounds by the time Friendship Games rolls around on October 22. It's going to be hard resisting my cupcakes, but I can do this!
