It's just me!

And I have some awesome news:  I won!  MizFit had a beautiful guest post from Karen on self acceptance along with a giveaway of her book AFTER The Before & After.  For some reason Karen's blog isn't loading for me right now, but I have really enjoyed it and am really looking forward to reading her book!!!!  WOOHOOO!  I'm a winner!  :)  How often does that happen?  Thank you MizFit and Karen!

While I'm sharing fabulous news I will add that I have been told by 2 different people I look like I've lost a lot of weight.  WOOT!  I guess 20 pounds makes a bit of a difference, eh?  And I'm not even sure it's 20 pounds still, but I'll take it.

Now for some ugly:

That my friends, is poison ivy.  This is what you get when you cut a neighbor's tall grass with a weedeater in a skirt, though I have a touch on my scalp even...  Couple it with my deeply alluring sick voice right now, and oh yeah!  I'm hot!

Pushin' through the pain!

ETA that I sent this out just a leetle too soon, as I want to point you to the contestants 2nd weigh-in at Win, Lose, or Blog!  Please make sure to go and encourage them to success!!!  :)

  4. I love y'all, but it's still just the same 20 pounds of the year. THE WHOLE YEAR! WAAAAHHHHHHHH!

  5. Don't scratch and feel better soon!


  6. Good job Pauline!

    Oh no with the poison ivy!!! I had a terrible case last year all over my hands! I asked a smarter than me neighbor to go through my yard and identify the stuff. Yikes!!! I had been pulling it off the house not knowing what that lovely three leaved devil vine was. Hopefully I'm smarter this year.

    Put cortisone creme on it if need be. It's a chemical injury and does not spread.

  7. Congrats on the 20 pounds gone!! And you poor thing with that poison ivy!! But thanks for the shout out today!!! The book is on its way!
