On Losing Weight and Brad Paisley

I think that we all want to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be. For me, that involves losing weight {aka not looking like a moo cow next to Brad Paisley}. :P Many of you who follow this blog may know that I have been on Nutrisystem for 5 weeks {as of yesterday}. I am down 8.5ish pounds! That means I am 8.5 pounds smaller than when I met Brad Paisley. Hooray!

Maybe if/when I ever get to meet him again I can take a new picture and replace this one! That would be way too cool!

Also, I look like a hobbit {My Precious!!!} next to Brad Paisley. Well, there isn’t a whole heck of a lot that I can do about that, unless I want to get in one of those Chinese torture devices. No thanks.

As I am typing this, I am sitting in Starbucks. I know what you are thinking – that I am cheating. Well, I am happy to inform you that I am NOT cheating! *Gasp!* I am enjoying an Awake hot tea with Splenda. :) Yes, I love the Hot Caramel Apple Cider – but I love losing weight MUCH better.

I may be short and be shaped somewhat like a weeble wobble {currently}, but I am {was} standing next to Brad Paisley – so , let’s be honest, I really don’t have that much to complain about. :D
