Headed in the Right Direction – The Shrinking Jeans of Melissa


July 8, 2009 By Lissa

I wish I could say that about everything in my life!! While the rest of my life is in turmoil, my weight has been consistently heading down this challenge! I am at my lowest weight since the beginning of Shrinking Jeans! I am down 6.2 lbs since the start of this challenge. Not bad, especially considering all the birthdays, holidays, and stress.

The older two kiddos and I rushed into town from my Dad’s place Saturday morning so that we could participate in the 5K walk at 7:30am. My daughter was whining and complaining by, oh, about mile 0.5! This coming from the girl who does dance 3 hours and soccer 2 hours a week. She was dragging and clunking her feet and started to drive me INSANE! Seriously – she was worse than my 5-year-old during the last 5K. I told her and Kane that they could slow down and walk behind me if they wanted, and I stayed a good distance in front them until the end. They both finished and I am very proud of them!
